    Hi,

    Got a new LG G4 - coming over from Blackberry Z10...

    LG G4 is a lovely phone. I bought it because I needed a good camera.

    Now my concern is when I take pictures, and zoom in to look at the pictures it looks "noisy" or "grainy".

    Is this normal and because of zooming in too much? Or is there something wrong with the phone camera.

    Any help is very much appreciated

    many thanks! .

    It's most likely because you're digital zooming, but iso settings affect this too. Increasing the ISO setting helps you take better low light pictures, but at the expense of introducing more grain. Even film cameras have this issue. Faster exposing film just has more graininess to it. You'll never get rid of the grain/noise with digital zooming, but using manual controls to lower the ISO setting can help. Taking RAW photos and then editing them after the fact may also help, but I'm not sure on that. Some of the articles I've read made it sound like RAW has less noise introduced than the camera's default jpeg creation.

    I think it's factory issue

    I don't think you'll find a phone with a camera better than that of the G4 at the present time, so you haven't bought the 'wrong' phone.

    completely agree with belodion, fantastic camera, and if you like total control manual mode can't be beat. RAW & Jpeg ...very versatile.

    Can you show us an example by showing us the original picture and then taking a screen shot of it being noisy while zoomed in?

    Yes, good idea. This old thread of mine may help you to judge whether anything is amiss with your own G4:

    It took me some time to find it. It was quite interesting to look at those comparisons again.

    I was specifically taking to the OP, but apparently he is a "one and done" poster. Hard to help people if they post a question and never come back.

    Yes, I realised that you meant that Mikey, and you're right, it is frustrating when posters don't continue with threads that they've started, especially after multiple responses from members. But hopefully our posts will be useful to others as well.

    It's good to have you back, 123.

    So you're saying that the photo you posted is of unsatisfactory quality? It looks okay to me....though I am only viewing it on a phone.

    It looks OK from the link but when I zoom in on the phone picture app- it looks grainy....i guess it means it's normal to be grainy when zooming in!!

    It looks like the AC app compressed the image before posting, as it's certainly not a full 16mp resolution. So that's going to create a lot of noise/pixelation on what we're seeing. Probably the most convenient option would be to install the Dropbox app. You'll have to create an account (I'm not aware of any places you wouldn't have to do so), but it's quick and painless. Then you can link here.

    As is, the pic looks about like I'd expect, given the compression. It may be a little less sharp than it should, but that could be simply due to a smudge on the lens, which is common. Btw, nice serving ware. We have a similar set too. :sly:

    For digital zooming, it is. Like if you zoom close enough in on a printed image in a newspaper, you would see the individual "pixel" ink drops.
