It was only some months ago that we told you that the most used camera in the world comes from the iPhone. The usage has grown a lot since then, and now iPhone 4 has taken the crown. The Apple iPhone 4 is being called the most used and most popular camera in the world according to Flickr upload data.
Of course, we all know that the iPhone 4 camera quality is nothing when compared to a SLR camera, yet it’s one of the most popular. Why? Well, because when people take pictures they like their friends and family to see it right away. Now that’s not possible with those SLR cameras, no internet access, damn!! This is where the iPhone has always been a step ahead, with instant web access so users can upload images taken right away.
It was predicted that the iPhone 4 will hit the top in just about a months time, but that wasn’t an accurate prediction. It certainly took the iPhone 4 more than a month to take the No.1 spot by dethroning the Nikon D90, Canon 5D Mark II, Canon Digital Rebel XSi and Canon REBEL T1i. That’s all the best cameras right there, following the iPhone 4 camera. No need to worry, you professional photographer, this is only the result of a photo upload comparison between all the cameras on Flickr. We know all about the secret photos stored in your external hard disk that you’d never want to upload.
It’s all about the convenience factor here, as the SLR cameras in the list have incredibly better lenses. Whereas the iPhone 4 costs less than all those cameras and is one of the most widely used cameras, not the best, but the most popular. There are better mobile cameras as well, but no one of them are being used as much as that of the iPhone 4.
All we have to do now(iPhone 4 users) is wait for the iPhone 5, hopefully with a better camera and keep the Flickr upload rate high.
