LG G4 front

The LG G4 is proving to be in a class all of its own, boasting a world-class 16-megapixel camera sensor with a fast, F1.8 aperture lens on top of that sensor and improved optical stabilization; OIS 2.0

“Smartphone cameras have come a long way — moving from being a convenient way to share a mediocre snapshot, to near pro-quality image capture tools in the right hands. While the old benchmark of resolution seems to have topped out, innovation is accelerating in many areas of mobile camera technology.”*

The G4 is indeed at the forefront of this innovation acceleration. The new and exciting camera related feature of the G4 – the Color Spectrum Sensor (CSS) – is fast turning budding photographers into skillful lens masters.

The advanced camera in the LG G4, complemented by Color Spectrum Sensor (CSS) – the first feature of its kind to find its way into a smartphone – improves color 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 automatically adjust the camera’s white balance and flash color to create images that are as close to what one would see with the naked eye.

This capability coupled with a competitive F1.8 aperture lens gives the LG G4 camera DSLR-like functionality thereby turning light drawings into a fun and creative experience for users. Light drawing is a fun technique made possible by the G4’s improved 30 seconds shutter speed.

Creating impressive light drawings using the LG G4 is as easy as configuring the camera by manually setting the shutter speed and ISO to match the chosen scene. Once the necessary settings are configured and the perfect location for the photo found, taking the photo is an easy process of triggering the shutter – a smile, saying “cheese” or simply arrange for someone to click the camera key on the phone’s screen will trigger the shutter and start taking the photo.

The LG G4 is currently available at leading operators.
