At least one source is claiming that the iPhone 4 is poised to become the most popular camera on the photo site Flickr. Think about it. We bring our mobile phones everywhere, and these days they virtually all have a camera. And these cameras are capable of producing photos that range from decent to excellent quality. The adage, “The best camera is the one you have with you” seems to ring true here. While the “point-and-shoot” camera certainly isn’t dead by any means, this trend may mean its days are numbered. And with Apple having recently unveiled new camera features in its upcoming iOS 5, this trend is likely to continue. For me, I know that I shoot a lot more quick photos with my iPhone 3GS, mostly because I always have it with me. What say ye, fellow Gadgeteers? Do you find yourself using your iPhone (or other phone) more often than your point-and-shoot camera?
