“I began to realize that the camera sees the world differently than the human eye and that sometimes those differences can make a photograph more powerful than what you actually observed. These words, made famous by Galen Rowell are brought to life with the slick new LG G5 dual cameras on the back.

LG’s new flagship, the G5, is equipped with two rear-facing cameras, one with a traditional lens and another with a wide-angle, 135-degree version. The latter is approximately 1.7 times wider than those of existing smartphone cameras lens, allowing users to capture more subject matter in a single photo. This is why the G5’s second lens’ near-fisheye field of view has proven so essential, given how carefully it has been integrated with the main camera.

The G5’s standard 16MP, f1.8 lens promotes the most creative moments in smartphone photography. There are actually two cameras on the rear of the phone, an 8MP wide-angle lens and a standard 16MP lens. You can easily switch between the two in the camera app. and both of which continue LG’s excellent record in smartphone photography. It enables you to take your digital photography skills to the next level without the unnecessary equipment that comes with digital photography. Reflecting LG’s longstanding reputation as a leader in consumer electronics, here is hoping you’ll never have to tell your friends and family to squeeze in tight to fit in a photo again. The wide angle lens makes it easier for users to capture more landscape, taller buildings or larger groups without having to position oneself further from the subject.

Other phone makers have released devices with multiple camera lenses in the past, but unlike the rest, the G5 focuses on creating images with 3D-like effects. What the G5 is able to achieve is simply add to users’ photographic options.

“The LG G5 features a collection of powerful photo effects including Pop-out Picture, Film Effect and Auto Shot. The G5 produces class leading photography with an additional wide angel camera uniquely built to give you that perfect shot, each time. The G5 undoubtedly offers many innovations designed to revolutionise today’s mobile lifestyle,” says Deon Prinsloo, General Manager at LG Mobile South Africa.
