Apple® and Burberry today announced that iPhone® 5s is being used to capture and share beautiful photos and video before, during and after the Burberry runway show in London on Monday, September 16.

Using the all-new iSight® camera on iPhone 5s, Burberry is shooting high quality photos and video for runway and beauty looks, product details, and backstage moments. The collaboration is reimagining how Burberry engages consumers, paving the way for significant changes in how they capture and share their content.

The phone also includes a "True Tone" dual-LED flash, built-in image stabilization, and new camera modes.

The iPhone 5s is cheaper than one t-shirt from Burberry...

$995 t-shirt (http://us.burberry.com/store/menswear/polos-t-shirts/prorsum/prod-44880431-studded-cotton-t-shirt/)

What I heard so far are excuses:

Sure, if only I get good lighting.
They only show the good ones.
Can't tell how bad a camera is because it's used by a pro.

Come one people, don't underestimate yourself. You can do it. It's not rocket science. You can take great photos with the current iPhone 5, or iPhone 4 for that matter. The fact that the pros are going show what they can do with the new iPhone 5s should be an encouragement of what a tool you will have. With a bit of effort you can take great photos too, may be some that are better than theirs.

"But...but they are pros, there is no hope for me." Well, with an attitude like that, there is no hope for you. Imagine looking at a pencil and say, "there is no point: I am not a writer." Everyone has a story to tell, and everyone has a photo to take, and it will be interesting as long as you do it your way.

The worst thing you can do is to give up before you even start.

Just like Blue Steel and Magnum, you won't be able to distinguish the 5 from the 5S. :D

Unfortunately they will only end up posting the best of the best pics I'm sure... So while the posted photos and videos may look real good, I'm sure there will be plenty more that we never see.


So? Just because you can take (presumably) great pictures with the 5S, that doesn't mean you cannot take bad ones.

WTF is a BurBerry? Somebody google it and fill me in.

so basically a few interns with iPhones so they can put it up on some social media and about 100 actual photographers from press and media that in the end need to shared their shots with Burberry anyway.

iPhone is as much of a professional camera as an iPad is a design station - just more stupidity.
