Flickr offers a look at the cameras and camera types used to upload to the platform in its year in review report.

As in previous years, smartphones are the most popular cameras. They continue to gain ground on traditional point and shoots and DSLRs.

Smartphones accounted for 48% of the photos uploaded to Flickr, up from 39% last year. DSLR was 25%, down from 31% in 2015, and point and shoot was 21%, down from 25% in 2015. Mirrorless remained flat at 3% of photos uploaded in 2016.


Apple continues to dominate Flickr with 47% of all uploads coming from an Apple device. 8 out of the 10 devices were iPhones with the 6, 5s, and 6s in the top three positions. Canon came in second place with 24% of uploads coming from the brand. The Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II were the only non-Apple cameras to break into the top 10.
