Quick! What’s the most used camera on Flickr? You’re probably thinking it’s some sort of cheaper DSLR such as the Nikon D40 or Canon equivalent. Or heck, even the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi, which has been at the top for quite a while now. No? Does it have more than 3MP or a zoom feature? No. That’s right, it’s the 2MP iPhone camera in all of its glory. Yet, this makes sense if you ask me. Flickr is one of the largest photo sharing sites, the iPhone is one of the most used phones, and that makes it super easy to upload photos to anywhere on the web. Plus, you always have your iPhone on you, but not necessarily your DSLR.
While Apple topped Flickr for camera phones a while back, it is very interesting to now see it at the top of the charts in general. That’s quite an accomplishment considering the camera isn’t even all that great. However, as the chart has just “Apple iPhone,” I’m assuming it means all versions of the iPhone, which would make more sense. On top of that, I’m also sure the video recording ability of the new iPhone 3GS had some effect on Flickr video uploads (as it did with YouTube) as well.
