Apple iPhone 5s to be displayed by the Academy of Motion Pictures Museum

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is building a museum, and among the many movie related objects that will be on display there will be an Apple iPhone 5s. No, the handset isn't being honored for its acting skills. Actually, the rear camera on the phone was used by Director Sean Baker a couple of years ago to film Tangerine. The latter was a big hit at Sundance, and in theaters it grossed seven times the cost to film it.
The Apple iPhone 5s will be placed alongside memorabilia from some of the most famous movies ever filmed such as The Wizard of Oz and Alien. The 300,000 square foot facility will apparently have more than enough room to allow visitors to see a wide range of property that was salvaged after being used in the filming of some historical films.
The Academy released a video to announce Baker's decision to turn the iPhone 5s used to film Tangerine, over to the organization. To edit the movie, Baker used the Filmic Pro app that cost him all of $8. The video above not only discusses the equipment that he used to make the film, it also shows Baker revisiting the site where one of the most climatic scenes of the movie took place. You can check it all out by clicking on the video at the top of the story.

5s, september 2013 release date... i don't like apple at all but I am pretty sure the video quality was way better on it than on the S4 if we are to compare the 2 OEM giants.... i also believe it was a marketing stunt from apple .. but ...just my 2 cents.

The iPhone 5s only had a 8 MP camera. Especially when other smartphones at the time had much higher resolution cameras. Apple's iPhones have always done a lot of post processing on their camera images. There was plenty of cameras that offered great cameras in 2013. There was even a 41 MP camera smartphone that arrived in 2013.

I’ve recently upgraded from iPhone 5s to the iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 5s has been and still is such a good little phone. Even on its fifth annual iOS still performs well and is fully usable. Not many Android phones can be so good after four years. There is not a single Android phone to get OS update for five years.
