I used to but found using a digital camera was faster and less error
prone. My spelling and handwriting are not great. When I am home
editing I have plenty of time to read text off the photo and double
check it has been entered correctly.

I also found paper a pain when the weather isn't nice. It's not easy
to write with gloves on. Wind, rain and mud can also cause problems.
Paper also doesn't handle being stuffed into a pocket very well.
