If you didn’t get an invite to Apple’s iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s launch today, don’t worry. Apple has now posted the full media event video on their website for your viewing pleasure.

The media event was simulcast to theaters in Beijing, Tokyo and Berlin in a nod to Apple’s growing global focus as it looks to expand its marketshare in key growth markets.

The new features are going to raise the quality level of pictures in an obvious way and are going to help with action shots and low light situations. Best of all you can shoot slow motion video, which will certainly mean a lot of slow motion content on people’s Facebook pages in the coming weeks.
