The LG V40ThinQ breaks new ground with five cameras, meaning users can take the perfect picture regardless of the distance of the subject from the V40ThinQ. The rear camera module houses a staggering three different lenses (super wide-angle, standard angle and telephoto), and two more (wide-angle and standard) can be found on the front of the handset. The rear-facing 107-degree super wide-angle lens enables users to capture stunning panoramic scenes, whilst the telephoto lens takes crystal-clear shots from a distance without any loss of detail.

With all this choice, users might worry about selecting the wrong lens to shoot with. Well, they can relax because LG has included a clever feature called Triple Shot, which takes pictures with all three rear-mounted lenses at the same time. Triple Shot stitches together the images captured by each lens to create a short video file that can be easily shared.

Try out Triple Shot from the camera application. Just click on Triple Shot mode, tap on the shutter button, then hit Save. 

 2. Forget About Framing: LG’s AI CAM Automatically Adjusts Composition for Portraits That Pop

LG V40ThinQ gives users’ portrait taking skills a helping hand via the new AI Composition feature, which automatically activates when the phone’s AI CAM recognizes a human subject. It works just as well when taking group photos, optimizing shots according to how many people are in the composition and how they are posed. Both original and AI Composition images are saved to gallery, giving users the freedom to choose whichever version they prefer.

AI Composition can be accessed from the camera application. Click AI Camera and tap on the shutter button. Move to the gallery and click AI Composition to view the superb results.

 3. Cine Shot: Bringing Still Images to Life

LG V40ThinQ has a wealth of features that allow users to get the most out of its five cameras, and have a lot of fun doing it. With Cine Shot, it’s easy to make six-second GIFs where one element (of the user’s choosing) remains in perpetual motion while the rest of the picture stays static – like a still life painting with a distinctly fun, modern twist.

To produce a Cine Shot masterpiece, click the Cine Shot mode from the camera application, then tap the shutter button. Select the area of the frame to keep in-motion then hit Save. 

 4. Backdrop: Change Background to Create Different Moods

Backdrop cleverly allows users to alter the background when taking portraits using any of the front or rear cameras. Play with focus, brightness, exposure, blurring effects, or bring in a solid color to give portraits that studio look. There are 5 studio-like lighting effects – including Natural, Softbox, Contour, Stage and Stage Black & White – to brighten, contour or add drama to portraits. Users can also choose from a variety of colored backgrounds to make pictures pop.

From the camera application, simply select Backdrop then adjust the background using the Settings bar. Tap on the shutter button and Save.

Adding to the fun, AR Emoji can track and copy the user’s expressions, making it possible to animate their avatar in real-time. Users may also choose from various 2D and 3D AR Stickers, and create 15 different GIFs when using the front-facing standard camera.
