The G6, which features two 13-megapixel rear cameras and a front-facing 5-megapixel shooter, has a few tricks up its sleeves. Check out the gallery to see how well it can take photos. All the pictures have been taken at their full resolution with HDR off, and were not edited or cropped in any way.

For more outdoor shots, check out our other G6 gallery here.

Photos taken in dark settings with the front-facing shooter also turn out muddy.

In this photo, the white balance is accurate and skin tones look natural.

I like the white balance in this shot, as seen with the true-to-life white curtain on the left.

The G6 handled the dramatic lighting on this orchid flower well.
