Magic Focus camera demo on the LG G Pro 2

Magic Focus camera demo on the LG G Pro 2
The G Pro 2 is LG’s new 5.9-inch phablet and it’s not just a large device - it’s a large device with a good camera. The 13-megapixel rear shooter supports optical image stabilization, but this is not the only trick up its sleeve.

Magic Focus is a neat new feature that we’d like to look at here, and it allows the G Pro 2 to capture an image and select the focus of that image after the shot is taken. What the G Pro 2 seems to do is capture an image with everything in focus and in the camera app you can then move a slider to pick the area of focus, whether it’s closer to the camera or further away. Of course, the rest of the image gets blurred for a nice shallow depth of field effect.

We tried it out on the demo G Pro 2 unit at MWC, and it all works as advertized. Take a look below.

The G Pro 2 is the only other Phablet i would even consider. The Z Ultra looks nice but its too big for the screen size. I understand that being water proof will add bezels. The One Max looks nice and i love the front facing stereo speakers but i hate the camera. Also, no multitasking like on my Note 3 or the G Pro 2

yeah, not really a good demo.The only thing i see in this video is the entire image bluring. That background certianly doesn't become sharper.
