The LG G4's camera has been given a boost over its predecessor, including a higher resolution, a brighter f/1.8 aperture, raw image shooting and manual controls. I headed out to the streets of Paris to see what it can do.
This first shot is my favourite. I slowed the shutter speed right down and used a neural density filter simply held over the lens to capture car light trails and smooth waves on the river.
I shot in raw mode and was able to process the image in Adobe Lightroom afterwards.
On the left is the unprocessed JPEG of this long exposure of the Eiffel Tower. On the right is the raw file, which I have been able to significantly lighten in Lightroom, thanks to the extra detail the raw image saves.
When holding the phone in your hand in low-light, instead of using a tripod, the camera will turn up the ISO speed to achieve a bright image. At full screen on a monitor, there's a lot of image noise visible.
