The LG G4’s professional-grade camera has improved visual communication. The camera features various functions and improvements, such as an F1.8 aperture on the rear camera, a Colour Spectrum Sensor, OIS 2.0, a larger image sensor, Manual Mode, and an 8MP front camera.
The wide F1.8 aperture lens allows 80% more light to reach the sensor, while the low-light performance has been improved even further with OIS 2.0, which doubles the performance of the OIS+ by expanding the range of image stabilisation.
Manual Mode allows experienced photographers to directly control the focus, shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation and white balance for every shot. This gives them the ability to exercise more artistic expression. Advanced photographers can also save their photos in RAW format, in addition to JPEG, for more precise editing with no loss of details.
The LG G4’s advanced camera is complemented by the Colour Spectrum Sensor (CSS) – the first feature of its kind to find its way into a smartphone. CSS improves colour accuracy by precisely reading the RGB values of the ambient light in a scene as well as the infrared light reflected from objects. CSS uses this information to adjust the camera’s white balance and flash colour to create images that are as close to what one would see with the naked eye. With the Colour Spectrum Sensor, no longer will reds appear as bright orange, or whites as dull yellow.
For selfies good enough to frame, LG included an industry-leading 8MP front-facing camera for sharp, detailed portraits and group shots. Gesture Interval Shot improves on the original Gesture Shot feature by taking four shots spaced two seconds apart, increasing the chance of getting that perfect shot under the most difficult conditions. Triggering the shutter is as simple as opening and closing one’s hand twice in front of the camera.
What differentiates excellent cameras from mediocre ones are in their light in-take capacity. The two variables – how much they can bring in and what specs you should look for to see if a camera can capture the light – are even more important than the number of megapixels.
The G4’s camera promises a visual experience on a similar level to that of a professional or DSLR level camera. The LG G4 is the ideal smartphone for visual communication.
The LG G4 will be available to local consumers in mid-June.
