Would you believe me if I said that the most popular photo-taking device on Flickr is the iPhone with nearly 54% of photographers using their mobile device to capture pristine, professional-grade photography? No?
Well, you might be a bit surprised at this news, then.
It's no surprise then that a good chunk of the top 25 photos this year were shot on iPhone, and it's also no surprise that smartphones are expected to become bigger and bigger photography tools on sites like Flickr in the future.
What do you think?
Are you someone who's excited about the prospect of mobile phone photography getting so good that you can scrap your pricey DSLR dreams?
Or would you rather stick to more traditional methods by shooting with a Canon or a Nikon?

I don't think so...........
Um, why? It makes sense.
Lol life in the dinosaur age
”It's no surprise then that a good chunk of the top 25 photos this year were shot on iPhone" How did you come to that conclusion? Of the top 25 photos none state that an iPhone was used to take the photo in the technical listings. There's a few that don't state what was used but one can't just assume that an iPhone was used based on popularity alone.
So 54 percent are shot with an Apple device and 50 percent with a smartphone. Does that mean 4 percent are shot with iPad?
