Apple is still not the most popular camera brand on Flickr, but its iPhone remains the most popular camera on Yahoos photo-sharing network.
As noted by PetaPixel, Flickr has analyzed the EXIF metadata of photos shared on its service to find out which cameras were the most popular among its users over the past year. And the results are in.
In 2013, Apple was the third most popular overall camera brand on Flickr, behind Canon and Nikon at the first and second spots, respectively. In 2014, Canon held on to the top spot, but Apple overtook Nikon in second place.
However, as in the previous year, Apple, with its iPhone smartphone line, dominated the rankings of the most popular individual and mobile cameras on Flickr in 2014.
Over the course of the year, Apples iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 4 were the top three individual cameras owned by Flickr users. The same iPhone models were the top three mobile cameras on Flickr, with Apples iPhone 5c, iPhone 6 (released just last year), iPad, and iPad mini at top four, seven, eight, and 10, respectively.
Take a look at the table below for the full rankings of the top overall camera brands, individual cameras, and mobile cameras on Flickr in 2014:
