Flickr recently released their very own list of camera brands that were used the most, while capturing photos on the photography website in 2014. Flickr did not categorize or discriminate by brand or type, but combined results to include mobile cameras and individual camera models. They made up a top five, and the brands which were ranking their top five were: Canon at 13.4%, Apple at 9.6%, Nikon at 9.3%, Samsung at 5.6%, and Sony at 4.2%.
Apple had took second place in 2014. The iPhone 5, 4S and 4 were the top three for both 2013 and 2014 (as seen below).
The composition of the top five companies (top used cameras) did not change from 2013 to 2014, but their relative positioning did significantly. While Canon topped the list almost unchanged in both 2013 and 2014, with 13.4% of uploaded Flickr photos in 2014, Apple’s iPhone leaped in front of Nikon for the second spot. Similarly, Samsung did the same to Sony for the number four spot with a rise from 2.4% in 3013 to 5.6% last year.
