Are there any limitations of the camera on the G4 I should be aware of?


checkpoint Checkpoint

We'd recommend reading through below points to ensure you best understand the functions, and any limitations, of the camera to ensure you get the best use possible:


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

                 → Also, when the phone is not held properly, recognition rate is reduced


           2.Blinking when video filming starts, including slow motion

            Symptom : Blinks when video filming 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.

                     Also, if a preview needs to be shown that differs in size with the previous view, it may blink temporarily.


           3. 'Noise' on the screen in dark places

           To shoot bright images with extremely low illumination, ISO is automatically set at 2700 (maximum).

           ▶  The higher the ISO, the higher the sensitivity - however images may still experience 'noise'

                 - Use LG apps to get clearer images without noise with the post-processing solution.

                 - To also capture bright images without noise, we recommend you to set shutter speed lower than 1/9s in Manual mode

                   and  lower ISO sensitivity.


          4.Red colour is exaggerated in videos and selfies

           This is because saturation for skin tone is increased for to give the appearance of a 'healthy face.'
