The iPhone is the most popular camera in Flickr’s 2015 Year in Review, ahead of Canon and Nikon

Flickr 2015 Year in Review iPhone

There’s something to be said about having a device that can do just about anything someone might need, including taking photos and share them all in a few simple steps.

That’s not to say that dedicated cameras don’t have their place. As Flickr has broken down in their latest Year in Review, the photo-sharing company indicates that while camera phones still hold a healthy lead in their own matrix results, the DSLR is still holding a close second. Breaking it down, Flickr says that camera phones were used 39% of the time to upload photos and videos to the service, while DSLRs were used 31 percent of the time. Point-and-shoot cameras were held off to only 25%, while mirrorless cameras only managed 3%, according to Flickr’s data.

The more intriguing aspect of the results show that the iPhone is still the most popular camera uploading images to Flickr, with a markedly healthy lead over Canon and Nikon. Specifically, the iPhone was responsible for 42% of photos uploaded to Flickr, while Canon (EOS) was responsible for 27% of photos, and Nikon (D) at only 16% of photos.

Flickr breaks down the devices used, showing that the iPhone 6 was the most popular phone used, while the iPhone 5s followed up in second place, and Samsung’s Galaxy S5 held third place. The iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5 were also part of the list, too. Unsurprisingly, Apple is the most popular “camera” brand on Flickr, while Nikon, Canon, Sony, Samsung, Motorola, and LG are also present.

This is a trend that’s been going on for years, dating back to the iPhone 4 in 2011, and one that will probably not break for some time.
