The New LG G4
Every single time that I make plans to meet up with one of my blogger friends, we immediately discuss if we should bring our DSLR cameras with us. Inevitably, we almost always decide against bringing our bulky and crazy expensive DSLRs and opt to use our smartphones for photography instead. It always seems like a good idea, but the photos never really turn out how we want them to. As soon as I try to snap a pic of a cute macaron or the scalloped hemline of a dress (#bloggerproblems), I immediately start to miss my beloved DSLR’s features. I want to adjust the focus or bring up the ISO, but my phone’s camera has never offered those features. Then I saw this tweet from my friend Evelyn where she mentioned that the LG G4 phone shot in RAW jpeg (basically an uncompressed file format that produces higher quality images), and I immediately started envisioning the beauty of having a digital camera’s capabilities with the convenience and portability of a phone.
As you might have guessed, I needed to try it out for myself. Let’s just say the LG G4 doesn’t disappoint! The phone itself features all of the amazing functionality that you’d expect from a top tier smartphone, but the camera and design of this phone are the real standout features. I absolutely love that the phone has a built-in brown leather casing, and camera’s features are positively drool-worthy: 16mp image sensors, f/1.8 Lowlight Lens, and manual mode. Yes, you’re reading that right. You can switch the camera to manual and adjust the ISO, white balance, shutter speed, depth of focus, and more. I’m still a photography newbie, but it’s been so much fun to play around with the settings to create awesome photos!
I’ve been testing out the LG G4’s camera all week long, and I’ve yet to be disappointed. All of the photos above were taken with the LG G4, and I’m so excited that I finally have a digital camera (that’s also a phone) to take with me on the go! It’s perfect for Instagram photos, and I know that I’ll also be using it for on-the-go blog shots when I don’t have the room (or patience) to bring my DSLR.
If you’re in the market for a new phone, pre-register for an LG G4 phone from T-Mobile. By pre-registering, you’ll not only be notified when the phone is available for purchase, but you’ll also be entered in a sweepstakes to win an LG G4 for yourself! In addition to pre-registering, you can also check out the national LG G4 preview tour from LG and T-Mobile. They’re sending two trucks across the country to let you try out the phone before it’s officially released! Be sure to follow @G4Preview on Twitter, so that you can follow the tour while they’re on the road.
