It seems most Flickr users aren't bothered with silly things like aperture, ISO settings, shutter speed or even zooming because the iPhone has nabbed the top spot on the list of most popular cameras on Flickr.
Lies , Corporate lies , Benchmarks , Statistics. (or is it statistics then benchmarks)
Anyway, quality of a product should be judged by first hand experience, or by trusted reviews. The later, unbiased and unsold are hard to find. Flickr is just a silly way to compare and judge.
Indeed i would never compare my iphone camera to a real camera or even most other phones... But i have taken some pretty good pics with mine, u b surprised. I have also taken some shitastic pics with it too.
[citation][nom]Silenthillnight[/nom]they should make it even and bunch up all of Canon's EOS DSLRs into one just like they did with the iphone 2g, 3g and 3gs. Skewing facts makes a baby cry.[/citation]
This is a good point... there are two similar Canon Camera's with there own stats, Why isnt there multiple iphone stats even for the 2meg/3meg
They determined this by reading the EXIF tag on the photos. The iPhone and pretty much every other camera also includes your GPS location of where the photo was taken in the EXIF tag. That's not really very useful, but taking forensics on everybody, all the time, without proper cause for suspicion is the hallmark of a police-state.
This is so skewed its ridiculous. Think about how many Flickr users own and use the exact same model of camera vs how many own an iphone which has mandatory built in internet access. Of course the iphone is going to have little trouble nabbing top spot!
