LG V10
Same camera as LG G4 but LOADS of video improvements.

We live in exciting times.  I have been using the LG G4 for much of the travel footage shot in the Iceland and Greece vlogs – I love the quality and ease of use. I don’t love the lack of manual control in video. The LG G4 made headlines w/ the full manual control when shooting still photos (watch my review) but annoyingly you lose all manual control when you switch to video – this can make some backlit scenes and other tricky exposures very difficult to film. The LG V10 looks to fix that- providing full manual control during video.

“The LG V10 offers users the ultimate in video capturing, editing and sharing. The V10 is the first smartphone to offer manual mode for video.”

LG has added a few additional features that differentiate this phone from the lG G4, including:

Two screens on the front of the device. There’s the main, 5.7-inch display, and just above that is a smaller “always on” screen that can display different content. When the main screen is off, the second screen can display the weather, time and date, and battery level. When the main screen is on, the second screen can be used to for quick-launching apps, accessing favorite contacts, or changing camera settings.

Two front facing cameras! Both are 5MP but each offers different fields of view- 120° and 80° The V10 will include software capable of stitching the shots together for a wider view? I am not exactly sure here.

LG V10 Customizable Audio Capture

Customizable audio capture using the three microphones!

Video editing software and the ability to use the Optical Image Stabilization or Electronic Image Stabilization.

Available in only a 64GB storage variant and otherwise offering much of the same internals – including the 3,000 mAh battery (removable) and MicroSD card slot capable of supporting up to a 2TB Micro SD Card!! (largest I know of is this 200GB card from SanDisk)

Body is a bit flatter with stainless steel and silicon construction and offers a fingerprint reader too.

The promo video is. . well a bit cheesy, but doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm for what could be a serious video tool.   Do you share my excitement? Let me know in the comments.

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
