Consider this graph showing the iPhone moving up to overtake all but the Nikon D90 in popularity (at least this month) among Flickr members:
And then this one showing the decline in usage of "point-and-shoot" cameras:
I'm not surprised at all, really... with my iPhone always with me, I've stopped using my "point-and-shoot", entirely. In fact, I've given it to my 9-year-old daughter.
I'm also not surprised to see the popularity of the iPhone in Flickr. With iPhone apps it is so trivial to upload images to Flickr. With my D90, I have to upload the images to my Mac, and then upload them to Flickr... more of a process and so I don't do it as regularly.
Amazing to see the changes going on around us within the world of photography...
