iPhone 4S zooms up Flickr camera-phone chart

apple iphone takes 52 of third quarter industry profits 4 vs 4sWell, that didn’t take long. Only a month after its release, the iPhone 4S has zoomed up the camera-phone charts to become the second most popular smartphone used by Flickr users to upload photos.

A graph on the popular photo sharing website shows that the iPhone 4S is now ahead of the iPhone 3G and 3GS, as well as the HTC EVO 4G. Way in front, however, is the iPhone 4, although that model has been out almost 18 months.

The iPhone 4S reportedly sold four million units on its first weekend of sales in October, immediately creating an army of photographers ready to upload to Flickr. With a slew of photo apps making it easy to perform a few quick edits, and the ability to upload instantly to Flickr, it’s little wonder the popular device has already taken the number two spot in Flickr’s chart. Some companies have even developed snap-on lenses, giving iPhone photo enthusiasts even more options.

Compared with all of the functionality and control that a dSLR camera offers, the iPhone 4S may well be a rather simple device, but with its 8-megapixel sensor Apple’s latest smartphone can, if in the right hands, produce some highly impressive results. 

Even legendary photographer Annie Leibowitz has praised the virtues of the iPhone 4S, this week calling it “the snapshot camera of today.” Speaking on MSNBC’s Rock Center news show, she said she would happily recommend Apple’s latest smartphone to anyone asking her for advice about which camera they should purchase.

With sales of the 4S apparently going from strength to strength, it’ll only be a matter of time before the iPhone 4 gives way to the 4S in Flickr’s chart.
