Apple’s iPhone is not only a dominant beast of the smartphone variety, it’s also a leading choice for consumers in the market for a new digital camera.

According to the latest statistics from photo sharing service Flickr, the iPhone’s camera is of such quality that many owners view their touchscreen Apple handset as their primary digital camera.

Incredibly, consumers are picking Apple’s iPhone over the likes of products made by Cannon and Nikon, two of the top names in all of digital photography.

That’s right. The iPhone 4 tops Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Nikon D90, Canon EOS REBEL T2i, and Canon EOS 7D. And we’re only talking about the iPhone 4, not the iPhone 4S, which delivers an even more impressive 8MP camera with all-new optics capable of shooting 1080p HD video.

Nonetheless, the iPhone 4 is the most popular and widely used camera on Flickr today, with well over 51 million registered users.

    I have to say, I use my iPhone 4S more than I have ever used a normal camera, but that's mainly because I have it with me at all times, and it can take pics with apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram.
    If it wasn't for the fact that the next 4 cameras were real ones, I'd just assume it was down to the convenience of carrying a phone around. But then again, my iPhone has produced better quality pictures in the past than some friends' real cameras.
    Interesting article.
