iPhone Continues to Top Flickr's Most Popular Camera Chart in 2016
Highlights
  • Apple users account for 47 percent of shared images on Flickr
  • Smartphones continue to dominate over DSLRs
  • The iPhone 6 holds the top spot in Flickr's latest data

Flickr has released its annual data report revealing which camera was used the most to upload photos to its platform. Not breaking tradition, Apple's iPhone still rules the top spot; in fact 8 out of 10 cameras used to upload photos wa an iPhone.

The data reveals that almost 47 percent of people used an Apple device to share images on Flickr. 24 percent people preferred a Canon device, while 18 percent used a Nikon device. Furthermore, the data claims the iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 6s in the top three positions.

Just like the previous year, smartphones continued to be the dominant choice with 48 percent of the photos uploaded to Flickr via mobile phones. DSLRs account for 25 percent, point and shoot cameras are at 21 percent, and mirrorless cameras account for 3 percent of the total share.

The iPhone 7 Plus with its dual cameras has not found a spot in the top three, presumably because of its recent entry into the market. Touted to be the best smartphone camera made by Apple, the smartphone will presumably see a higher stake in the next year's data. The company's Portait mode on the iPhone 7 Plus particularly has gained lots of fame in the photography industry. Apple has even published a few pro tips from photographers in order to master the Portrait Mode and take beautiful pictures.

Wedding photographer Benj Haisch tips that "having soft, diffused lighting will help with keeping the photo flattering to your subject. Find a space that isn't too busy or distracting, as Portrait mode will create a photo that really pops." Fashion and lifestyle photographer JerSean Golatt says that the Portrait Mode "adds value for those with lower than commercial budgets" and recommends to "get up close to your subject to bring out the details."
