The LG G3 conquers an active volcano

The LG G3 conquers an active volcano
Taking a page from Nokia’s playbook, LG commissioned nature photographer Jung-won Park and adventure film maker Geoff Mackley to take the new G3 up the hill and take a look at a live volcano.

Obviously, such an adventure means showing off the G3’s camera. However, they manage to plug other features of the new flagship along the way.

As luck would have it, Park “just happened” to run into Mackley at the top of the volcano, and they teamed up to take some pictures with the laser-focused camera, augmented by OIS+. Given that volcanos are basically tossing up molten lava, making new earth, the plastic construction of the G3 seems an odd choice for such an assignment.

Still, the picture quality that is shared from the adventure on Ambrym Island in the South Pacific is remarkable. In fact, volcanos are sources of pretty neat pictures all around, but taking the marketing crew on such an adventure wins a few extra points.

As we shared in the review of the LG G3, the new flagship has a lot going for it, but if you have small hands, or even normal sized hands, you may find the device to feel a little bulky. However, the new interface is a winner, the camera is sweet, it has great battery life, and that screen, oh that massive screen with QHD 1440x2560 resolution make for a device that should definitely be on your list to consider.

Just wondering. Is there any way to take camera/video without using touchscreen?

Might be little akward using the volume button at the back to take picture xD

Just got my G3 this morning and found out how. Press the menu button and the interface appears which also brings with it the shutter button and the option to switch to video mode

Depends on how you mean, you dont need to use the touch -> focus -> snap, there is "normal" autofokus too, but you still need to press the camera button on the interface. Or there is voice command that works pretty well.

what i mean was like for example, Iphone and samsung has the option to use volume button to take picture. I dislike using camera button on the screen. to capture. Prefer using button like Sony.

i guess voice command is the best way to use other than touch to capture and self-timer for perfect selfies=)

Both using 2Gb Ram, is kinda old. The Note3 and Z2 both have 3Gb Ram.

A big turn off.

G3 has 3gb of Ram too. 2gb of Ram also is good enough unless you love installing many running background processes
