iPhone 4 is the Most Popular Camera on Flickr
<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"If you're shooting a photo and uploading it to Flickr, chances are that it's on an iPhone 4, as Apple's iconic smartphone has officially surpassed the Nikon D90 as the most popular camera on Yahoo's photo sharing site."</em></p><p><img height="153" src="" width="600" /></p><p>Besting the Nikon D90 in terms of quantity of course, not quality, the iPhone 4 is now the most popular camera for uploading photos to Flickr. Interesting to note that there isn't one Windows or Android phone in the list of the top five, so I guess either those owners don't use Flickr or they prefer a different camera, what are your thoughts?</p>

I think that historically most Windows Phones haven't had cameras that were anything special, so those users tend to have an additional camera available (and I'd argue that there's a higher percentage of power users in the Windows group, too, and they'd tend to have an additional, high-res camera.). I also think that the typical iPhone user really does consider his/her device an all-in-one and relies upon its built-in camera.

The data also isn't too surprising when you realize that it shows the percentage of USERS. The percentage of photos would probably be as highly stacked in favor of the iPhone, though, because people tend to take more pics when their camera's always at their side.

I think that it's convenience, at least for me. I nearly always have my iPhone when I'm out and about, and drag along a real camera (I have two Nikons) only when I'm consciously planning to take photos. Same with my FlipVideo camera, I use my iPhone for quicky videos unless I'm planning to record an hour's worth of footage. As for Windows Phone users, they just don't seem to be there in great numbers yet (but wait until Nokia gets Windows on its "world" handsets ...).
