It hasn’t even been a month since Apple’s iPhone 4S first hit the market, and already its 8-megapixel camera is proving to be a huge hit amongst Flickr users. The device has quickly rocketed up the Flickr charts to become the second most popular camera phone on the photo sharing service, overtaking the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and the HTC EVO 4G.Based on the graphs that feature on Flickr’s Camera Finder page, Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone is already one of the most popular camera phones amongst photographers. In fact, the only device that sits above the iPhone 4S is its predecessor, the iPhone 4.
The iPhone 4 made news earlier this year when it followed a similar pattern, quickly becoming the most popular camera on Flickr, beating even dedicated point-and-shoot cameras. The iPhone 4S still has a long way to go before it takes the top spot, but it’s certainly not out of reach — especially if we’re kept waiting until late next year for the iPhone 5.
