Why I Need To Know Which Camera Made Each Photograph

When I first started using Flickr, I only had one camera - the one in my phone. I didn't feel any need to create an album for all photographs made with that phone, or tag the photos for a similar purpose. Because all of my photos were made with the same phone!
