Back in October of 2007, we took a look at the Most Popular Cameras on Flickr. It’s been well over a year, and a lot happens in a year’s time, so we thought we’d take a look at the current most popular cameras on Flickr. This list gives some interesting insight as to which cameras are popular, at least among the Flickr crowd of photographers.

This time around, there are a couple of cameras that remained on the list (but moved positions), and a few new ones as well. Below you’ll find a list of the top five current most popular cameras on Flickr, how much they cost (prices from Amazon), and the type (digital SLR, point and shoot, camera phone).

  1. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi
    Retail price: $699.99
    Type: Digital SLR
  2. Nikon D80
    Retail price:$799.99
    Digital SLR
  3. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT
    Retail price: $799.99
    Digital SLR
  4. Canon EOS 40D
    Retail price:$1099.00
    Digital SLR
  5. Apple iPhone
    Retail price: $199 (8GB), $299 (16GB)
    Camera phone


As we found last time, this list shows that Digital SLR cameras are definitely more popular among the Flickr crowd than point and shoot cameras. It also shows us that Flickr users favor Canon cameras over others. Another interesting fact is that the iPhone is now one of the most popular cameras, even though it’s not the best camera out there. Apple should feel pretty good about that.

If you’re curious, here are the most popular Point and Shoot cameras followed by the most popular Camera phones:
