iPhone 4 on Flickr

5 Reasons Why the iPhone 4 Is the Second Most Popular Camera on Flickr

Flickr is one of the most widely known photo-sharing sites for professional shutterbugs. But according to a new graph released by the Yahoo-owned site, recreational iPhone 4-toting photographers are gaining ground.

The graph shows the most popular cameras used on the site: Nikon D90, Apple iPhone 4, Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and Canon EOS Rebel T1i are the most popular. Another interesting graph details the most popular camera phones used for uploads with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, HTC EVO 4G, and iPod Touch rounding out the top five. Why is the iPhone so widely used among photographers? I've got five reasons for you. Check them out below.

  • Portability — The iPhone 4 is tiny, and can slide right into your bag, pocket, or clutch with minimal bulk, which is quite the contrast to bigger, more professional-grade cameras.
  • Camera apps — Photoshop, Camera+, and Hipstamatic make it easy to turn regular images into something extraordinary.
  • Social features — Instagram and its offspring, like Postagram, let users share their images with various groups of friends instantly rather than hooking up to a computer, downloading images, then uploading them to their social networks.

See the rest after the jump.

  • Price — Starting at just $199, the iPhone 4 is so much cheaper than the most popular camera on Flickr, the Nikon D90, which sets you back a whopping $1,200.
  • Utility — Not only does the iPhone 4 capture and share images anywhere, but it makes calls (it is a phone), acts as your navigation system, and much more with the help of a few smart apps.
