Camera finder

In the category of, gee, ain't this cool?

Flickr, the photo-sharing web site owned by Yahoo, has introduced a "camera finder" feature. Using this feature, you can now search for all the photos taken by a particular camera -- useful when you're in the market for a new picture-taking gizmo.

According to results checked Tuesday afternoon, the camera that has produced the most Kodak pictures on Flickr is the EasyShare DX6490 Zoom -- but the popularity is dropping, predictably, because technology stands still for no one. But that camera was the source of nearly 700,000 images on Flickr. Climbing fast is the Z740 Zoom.

The No. 1-ranked camera on the site was the Canon EOS Rebel Digital XT, with more than 8.1 million photos uploaded to the site.

Here's an article about the feature.
