Camera: Rear 16MP standard & 8MP wide
Johannesburg, 24 June 2016 — Designed for a more playful and innovative mobile experience, the LG G5 has the best camera on Android. LG offers a device that is almost totally incomparable with closest competitors because of its advanced camera features and greater convenience for class leading photography.
The G5 is the first LG smartphone with a dual-camera setup. 16MP (rear) main camera and an 8MP (front) wide angle camera. It allows users to capture photos with a traditional FoV, wide-angle shots or both at the same time. LG Mobile has stepped up to offer consumers the perfect smartphone to capture spectacular and pro-like images.
The 16MP main camera captures most of the scene when taking pictures, fostering those creative moments. It has an f/1.8 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization and autofocus (with Laser assistance), plus the Color Spectrum sensor that the G4 debuted.
The G5’s 8MP wide angle camera lens has a fisheye field of view has proven essential to users. It has been wonderfully integrated with the main camera. A single icon transitions between the two sensors, allowing you to easily note the differences. While the main 16MP shooter has a still-wide 28mm equivalent focal length, the 8MP sensor is tuned closer to 18mm, with barrel distortion at the edges.
To enhance your photography skills further, LG brings you the CAM Plus to deliver a comfortable grip and convenient control of a standalone camera. The CAM Plus is a versatile camera module that can be attached through the battery slot to deliver a comfortable grip and convenient control of a standalone camera.
The LG CAM Plus provides physical buttons for power, shutter, record, zoom, LED indicator and comfortable grip. It also offers intuitive auto focus and exposure lock, features usually found on standalone digital cameras. When attached to the LG G5, it provides an additional battery capacity of 1,200mAh to allow for longer shooting times for more fun and enjoyment.
Various technology brands have talked up the promise of modular smartphone for years, but LG has gone ahead of the curve as the first major player to bring the taste of flexibility to the multitudes.
The LG G5 is currently available at leading operators nationwide.
