There are no flash, editing and zooming features on the iPhone camera. Some people think that the iPhone is a good smartphone with a weird camera, but flicker has a different story and most iPhone users would not accept that the camera sucks. There are many features that make the iPhone camera special and handy.
The iPhone being always in your pocket is the first convenience; you can take pictures wherever you go.
For normal use, the iPhone camera delivers crisp and clear pictures provided the pictures are taken with ample light around. Images captured with the camera can be assigned as wallpaper on the phone, inserted to contacts and can be mailed to others, which are kinda handy. Ease of use is one special and unique feature of the iPhone camera. The single button access, tap to click feature, and browse option of the picture folder from the camera interface make things super easy for users.
Flicker listed iPhone camera as the most popular smartphone camera followed by Nseries phone cameras and Sony Ericsson K800i. The iPhone camera is listed in the fifth place among the most popular high end cameras such as the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi, Canon EOS Digital XT, Nikon D80, etc. The report is compiled from flicker photos that members upload using different cameras.
