Most Popular Camera On Flickr: iPhone

Flickr logoThe vast majority of phones sold today comes with a built-in camera, but common to them all is that the quality is not yet near as good as what you’ll find in most pocket cameras. But one camera phone has done really well on the photo service Flickr, and that’s the Apple iPhone.
Flickr keeps statistics about the cameras used to upload pictures to their service and among mobile phones, the iPhone is far ahead, but now it has also taken first place among all cameras.

Until now it has been the Canon EOS 400D (XTi) which had the first place, but no more.

Observers don’t think that this means a lower quality of images, but more the fact that it’s much easier to put up pictures on Flickr via the iPhone.

Ooooohh you really are making me want an iPhone these days. I took a picture with my Blackberry Curve the other day and it is really bad quality – is only good for the fact that it’s always with me.

That’s true – the best camera is always the one you have with you 🙂

I wish I could get my iPhone 3GS soon so I have a better camera than the one in the 3G, which is pretty bad.

It sort of makes you wonder why the first iPhone didn’t have a camera, I mean what were those guys thinking when they left it out?

I’m not sure what they were thinking, because the first iPhone DID actually have a camera 😀

(A 2 megapixel without autofocus, like the iPhone 3G had)

That’s weird. I’m sure I read somewhere that it didn’t come with a camera. Perhaps it had a camera but wasn’t able to record videos?

That’s true, only the new iPhone 3GS is able to record video. But the iPhone always had a camera. The iPod Touch which runs with the same operating system as the iPhone, doesn’t have a camera – yet 🙂 (will probably get one in less than a month)

Cool, I knew there was something it was lacking. Thanks for putting me on the right track.
