G4 Smartphone camera limitations


Function Function


           1. When pictures are taken by hand gestures, rock (clenching a fist) is better
               recognized than paper (open hand).

                Symptom : A fist is better recognized than paper (open hand).

                 When the phone is not held properly, recognition rate is reduced (engine limitation).


           2. Blinking when video filming starts including slow motion

               Symptom : Blinks when video capturing starts.

                    Camera Settings Video resolution Slow motion Filming screen

                    Recording starts after blinking once. It may appear as an error but please be assured

                    that it is normal.

               Cause: Surface view is used to display preview screen.

                            When a new preview needs to be shown being that it differs in size with previous

                            view, camera may blink temporarily adjusting to new environment.


           3. Noise on the screen in dark areas

               When shooting bright images in extremely low light, ISO is automatically set to 2700°K


               ▶  Higher the ISO, greater the sensitivity therefore image may get riddled with video noise


                     - Use LG apps to get clearer images by eliminating noise as a post-processing editing


                     - To also capture bright images without noise, we recommend you to set the shutter

                       speed lower than 1/9s in Manual mode and lower the ISO sensitivity.


            4. Red color is exaggerated in videos and selfies

                Skin tone saturation gets increased for healthier face expression.
