Apple’s iPhone 4 will soon become the most popular camera on Flickr and currently the only cameraphone in the Top 5.

According to the graphs on Flickr’s Camera Finder, iPhone 4 which is currently #2 is nudging closer to Nikon’s D90 to become the most popular camera on the popular image sharing site.

Here are some of the reasons why iPhone 4 is so popular among Flickr users compared to other cameras:

  • It is very easy to upload photos using Flickr’s iPhone app or other third party iPhone apps compared to a digital camera.
  • You are more likely to have an iPhone with you to capture a moment than a digital camera.
  • Apps like Instagram that allow users to take photos, add filters to make them look better or funny and share them with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr etc. are very popular with iPhone users.
  • Even though iPhone 4 sports only a 5-megapixel camera, we’ve seen impressive photographs taken using iPhone 4’s camera, emphasizing the point that megapixel count is only one of the several factors that determines the actual quality of the camera, which we’ve often noted in the past. If you’re still not convinced checkout the photos taken using iPhone 4 on ShutterSalt.

Not surprisingly, Apple also dominates the cameraphone segment with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G as the top 3 cameraphones according to Flickr’s Camera Finder. Interestingly, iPhone 3G (launched almost 3 years ago) is still more popular than iPhone 3GS among Flickr users.

It is only a matter of time that iPhone 4 will become the most popular camera on Flickr, which is very impressive.

Are you surprised by the Flickr phenomenon?
