iPhone set to become most popular camera on Flickr

Ready the point-and-shoot obituary because the iPhone 4’s slaughter spree of the camera market continues with news that the Apple gadget will soon nab the top spot for most popular picture-snapping device on Flickr.

The popularity of point-and-shoots amongst Flickr users has dropped off significantly in recent years with most photogs opting for more simple with camera phones or upgrading to more complex with DSLRs. The Nikon D90 currently holds the top spot (at least for the time being), demonstrating the trend away from point-and-shoots.

This won’t be the first time an Apple gadget claims the title on Flickr—in August 2009, the iPhone (all models) trumped the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi.
