iPhone 4S Becomes Second Most Popular Cameraphone on Flickr


Apple's newly launched iPhone 4S has quickly shot up to become the second most popular Cameraphone on Flickr.com. Flickr's Camera Finder page shows graphs of the popularity of both smartphones and Point and Shoot cameras.

The iPhone 4S has beaten out the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and HTC EVO 4G, but still lags behind the original iPhone 4. The iPhone made headlines in 2009 when it became the most popular camera on Flickr, even beating out all dedicated non-smartphone cameras. The iPhone 4S still has a ways to go before dethroning the iPhone 4, which remains the most popular overall camera on Flickr.

The iPhone 4S introduced a number of significant improvements to its camera, drawing praise from many. Arstechnica recently posted a comparison pitting the iPhone 4S camera against several others, and found the 4S with competitive image quality and the advantage of convenience.

To bad the quality is nothing compared to my T2i.


One would hope a $650 DSLR's image quality would far exceed that of a camera on a phone. :)

Hmmm. Nothing?

If you're seeing nothing there may be something wrong with your computer. Or possibly your eyes. I don't want to rule anything out at this point, but I can definitely say you should be seeing something when looking at a photo.

"The iPhone 4 made headlines in 2009 "

I'm pretty sure the iPhone 4 was not out in 2009.

So it looks like a lot of the people who had an iPhone 3G have moved on to the iPhone 4 and 4S. 3GS looks pretty steady.

I'm not surprised, the iPhone is a popular phone. However, like we all know, popularity != quality. The iPhone camera is very good of course, no denying that.

The Nokia N8 still has not been surpassed in terms of camera quality - and that phone is over a year old!


This article is talking about popularity. There is not one mention of quality.
