    Default Laser Autofocus

    Well this is one feature I really enjoy about the G3.

    As a hobbyist photographer this let's you get that quick focus needed for that crisp photo.

    The app is basic but with the few features available it makes for a fantastic point and shoot.

    Low light picture below....the PIC appears to show that it was lighter than it actually was.

    Yes, that laser focus, I took some close-up shots today, focus absolutely spot-on.

    Thanks for a pleasant image at the end of the day, at least the end of the day for me. 😌

    Just something I find very useful and yes some may contest its functionality.

    I'm not expert in this field but it appears to do the job very well and focuses very quickly indeed :-).

    Yeh that pic was a open up camera app point and shoot, didn't expect it to come out as good as it did, being a quick snap and lowlight.

    Yup end of night for me to, zzzzzz shortly :-)

    I love it too. This is my husband's birthday cake. The only light is from the candles. No flash.

    We are both waiting to see what the Note 4 has... I'm also waiting to see the X + 1... Then I'll decide. She will either get the G3 or the Note 4. .

    There is a commercial that LG has that shows the person taking pictures just by tapping on the screen. Is there a way to do that because I have no idea how to do it on my device?

    You just hop into your camera app, three vertical dots just press that, the shutter and everything else will disappear.

    Enabling you to tap to shoot :-)

    Well.... the laser focus is such a great feature that I am surprised that it took so long for someone to put it in their phones. I guess there were other issues in play.... now that the sensors are starting to get a lot better and the quality of the top flight phones is at the point where they can compare to the point & shoot rigs that people USED to buy for heavy lifting, they could move on to other things... like laser focus and the mythical optical zoom (without the wicked huge telescoping lens that is).

    But laser focusing is so much better than contrast detection. Before I read into the G3's stuff, I never really knew how the other cams focused and never really bothered to look into it though... what I DID know is that those cameras spent a lot of time hunting for focus. And sometimes I'd see my picture focus only to re-focus into a blurry shot. So now I know WHY they tweaked out on occasion.

    So a direct measurement of range is awesome.

    I do get a kick out of the fact that LG built the rig by using the laser range finder off an autonomous vacuum cleaner they had in their inventory.

    That's funny. When I was in the Verizon store before I bought my G3, I was trying to figure out how to get the shutter button on as it seemed to have been set to "touch the screen" by default for taking pictures. This was annoying and I must have not seen the three dots at the time. (mesmerized by the beautiful 5.5" screen?)

    Before today, I thought the 3 dots simply removed all the options from the screen, nothing more, lol! I would press it again because I thought , "How the HELL am I going to take a pic without the shutter button"?!? lol!
