iPhone Ranks As ‘Digital Camera of Choice’ for Consumers

Flickr reports (via AppleInsider)┬áthat Apple’s iPhone has become THE choice for consumers who use a digital camera. More evidence of this? Apple just revealed that it had sold a million copies of its new iPhoto software for iPhone and iPad in less than 10 days.

Analyst Ben A. Reitzes with Barclays, in a note to investors on Monday, called Apple’s smartphone “the digital camera of choice for consumers and enthusiasts.”

He said that the data from Flickr shows that the iPhone 4 is the most popular camera used on the site, which has over 51 million registered users. The iPhone beat second-place Canon EOS 5D Mark II, as well as the Nikon D90, Canon EOS REBEL T2i, and Canon EOS 7D.

Reitzes believes the iPhone has replaced the standalone digital camera for many consumers because of the ease of use it offers, as well as the ability to quickly share photos online.

“This usability helps warrant a premium for the product and creates stickiness with software that connects consumers with other Apple products,” he said.

In related news, Apple announced that it had sold a million copies of its new iPhoto software for iPhone and iPad in less than 10 days. iPhoto for iOS is available on the App Store for $4.99.
