LG Australia’s General Manager, Nathan Dunn says that this new LG phone leads the way for the next generation of camera phones as it lets consumers utilise all the camera functions more conveniently.
LG’s Intelligent Shot Mode analyses the subject, background, and lighting conditions and compares the data against seven pre-programmed scenarios to take perfect pictures every time. It even provides instantaneous feedback, showing exactly how the camera is analysing a particular scene with real-time indicator bars.
With an 8-megapixel camera and a maximum ISO setting of 1600, shots previously considered too dim or dark can now be captured even without a flash. Viewty Smart adds several new camera features including Multi-Face Detection and DVD-quality D1 video recording. It also carries over features such as Touch Shot, Art Shot, Beauty Shot, Panorama Shot and Continuous Shot.
Viewty Smart also includes the easy-to-use 3D S-Class UI and comes with an on-screen dial for instantly switching shot modes and a thumbnail viewer that shows recently taken photos without having to switch to the photo gallery.
With 7.2 Mbps HSDPA network and Wi-Fi compatibility, Viewty Smart can upload photos over the internet at broadband speeds. With A-GPS based geotagging, friends can even see the exact spot where a photo was taken. The Viewty Smart can also store photos on its 1.5 GB of internal memory or on MicroSD cards up to 32 GB.
“Viewty completely changed the way camera phones were viewed. People no longer had to suffer poor image quality for the convenience of using the cameras on their mobile phones. Viewty Smart will change perceptions again. It won’t be about having a camera phone that equals the quality of a standalone digital camera. It will be about having a smart camera phone that takes better pictures and is easier to use than a standalone digital camera,” concluded Dunn.
LG Viewty Smart is launching now and will be available through Telstra (Jul), Vodafone (Aug) and 3 Mobile (Aug) with an RRP of $899
