Flickr has today shared its annual list of the most popular cameras of 2017, with Apple's iPhone topping the list yet again. Many professionals also often turn to iPhone for their higher-quality photos thanks to Apple's improvements to the smartphone's camera.

"When it comes to brands, Apple iPhones remained the dominant camera models, with 54% of the top 100 devices being named iPhone and an nearly clean sweep of the top 10 Devices of 2017, accounting for 9 our of the top 10 devices", Flickr says. In addition, all top 10 devices of 2017 were iPhone models, Flickr says.

As for the stats, the iPhone is used by 54 percent of photographers who are using the device to upload pictures to Flickr this year. The Canon 5D Mark II was in the top 10 past year, but it has since dropped out and been overtaken by yet another iPhone model. The most popular phones worldwide were the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s, and the iPhone 5s in first through third places. Behind Apple's best-selling device, comes Canon in second place with 23% and Nikon rounding out the top three with 18%.

With each passing year, it seems as if every new iPhone release sets a new bar of excellence for mobile photography.

Smartphones hit 50% this year, up from 48% in 2016 and 39% in 2015. DSLR cameras grew to 33 percent, up from 25 percent, with point and shoot dropping to 12 percent from 21 percent.

The rise of smartphones and DSLRs have come at the expense of point-and-shoots in 2017. Meanwhile, mirrorless remained at 4 percent of the total uploads for the third year in a row, the report stated.
