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.

 Evening in Bol on the island of Brač, off the coast of Split. One of our last nights in Croatia - looking forward to a return to this beautiful country. Panasonic #GH5 12-60 lens 3 second exposure.
 Way back in March we spent a few nights at the awesome #aurorabear yurt run by @frankstelges If you want to hang out at the coolest yurt while watching #auroraborealis reach out to him!! While waiting for the aurora to show up I ran the 80D in time-lapse mode and then stacked it all in #starstax which answers the question - what's it look like when you shoot the stars AND the full moon and StarStax it all. Captured with the #Canon #80D and 24mm f/2.8 lens. (Note - the 80D ran for 3 hours in near zero temps on one battery!)
 Left to Right - Mahtotopa Mountain(8,671 ft), Little Chief Mountain (9,514 ft), Citadel Mountain (9,035 ft) - as seen from Going-To-The-Sun Point #GlacierNP is awesome even if #loganpass is closed! I could tell you when it will open but we were sworn to secrecy :) #mckaylive
