Apple iPhone 3GS
Years in use: 2009-2010
This generation of iPhone brought with it a dramatically better camera. The photos and video taken with this iPhone could be used without apology for their quality.
As it turned out, it was the video camera I had with me when I met Roman Shusterman on Coney Island taking an NSFW stand for Free Speech. It’s also the camera I had with me when I moved cross-country to San Francisco.
