I don’t have the habit of printing out my photographs. Instead, I will choose to upload my photographs to my social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. With good quality lens built onto the smartphones and fast network speed these days, this makes photo sharing so much easier. Despite I own 6 cameras at home, my personal favorite is still Apple iPhone. With lots of photography apps available on the App Store, this makes editing photographs on the go really easy. From Flickr’s data on Percentage of Photographers in 2015, Apple iPhone took the top 6 positions, leaving the DSLRs, compact cameras, and other smartphones behind. Up to 46% of the photographs uploaded on Flickr are from iPhone, crowning this Apple device “The Most Popular Camera” in 2015.
