iPhone 4 is one of the most used cameras on Flickr, the image and video hosting website. Perhaps this makes iPhone 4 the finest smartphone camera till date.
According to Flickr, most of its users prefer Nikon D90, a digital single lens reflector (SLR) camera used by professional photographers. But, the iPhone 4 is gaining ground quickly and comes second in the list. The website also said that 5.8 million photographs taken with the iPhone 4 were uploaded on Flickr last year.
iPhone 4 has a 5 megapixel camera with illumination, which helps users take better pictures even in low light environments.
According to Flickr, the popularity of point and shoot cameras is gradually going downhill. Also, other devices from Apple such as iPad 2 and iPod Touch are not that popular among Flickr’s users.
The other cameras popular among users of the site include Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and Canon EOS Rebel T1i.
The popularity of iPhone 4 on Flickr does not mark the death of other conventional cameras yet, but it does indicate that even serious photography enthusiasts prefer iPhone 4 over compact cameras.
