LG G5: Auto mode

Been using this mode for the past year, so I thought I had a pretty good handle on it. Normal or wide angle lense depending on how far or close I am to the object. To force or disable the flash, tap the lightning symbol. Turns out, I am still a beginner.

I tapped on the various icons at the top/left of the screen and tried out each option. To share what I see, I finally learned how to take a screenshot of my phone. Honestly, as a computer scientist and millennial, you would think I was more tech savvy than this.

LG G5 Grid OverlayThe grid overlay is amazing! Normally, I have to take multiple photos because I rarely hold the phone level. With this overlay, I can immediately see if an object will stand up straight when I take the picture.

LG G5 FilterThe icon of the old camera film allows me to change the filter of the image. I was wondering how people make black and white photos!

LG G5 Aspect RatioI always see photo submission sites specify a 16:9 aspect ratio. To me, it seemed like the rule was unnecessary. When you submit a photo, you would want the object to fill the entire view. Turns out, a user can change the ratio. Thanks to exploring this setting, I see why random gifs on the Internet don’t use the entire screen. Its possible, they might have forgotten which ratio they were on in the heat of the moment.

Here is a list of the other things I learned (or am about to learn) about the LG G5 camera.
