Brilliant photos! I think it's a brilliant camera...I do think the colour is slightly flushed out in some of the 'nature' shots...more vibrant on the S6 camera...but when you consider ALL phones features, the G4 craps on the S6 overall.

Hey everyone,

I'm lucky to have had the G4 for a few weeks now and I think the camera is amazing... really great in low light and always sharp (thanks to the OIS). You can see my photos on my Flickr page: https://flic.kr/s/aHsk8MDaG2

If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them :)

These pics are amazing! Good work men. I'm pretty good with camera's as press photographer, but I could learn from you ^^

Best option is to shoot in DNG and edit those images in a program like Photoshop or Lightroom. A standard DNG file will look like **** untill you play around with the settings, you will get great contrast, colours :)

I'm planning to go to Japan in October. I'm a photography noob, any tip for me for taking quick quality pictures? Will probably do a lot of urban, nature and landscape photos.

I wish something like snapseed could open DNGs.. I like to be able to do everything on my phone. I know you can get Light Room but I don't wanna pay $10 a month subscription really.. are there any other options?

Thanks! I agree sometimes they are a bit over saturated when shot in JPEG. DNG is much more natural but they require a bit more work to edit!

Guys, how to to set up the camera if I want to shot fast-moving objects, like motorcycles or cars...? Sorry, I know it's off-topic, but I really am curious! :)

Spot on...the only issue there is, I dpn't think we have Adobe Lightroom for Andriod yet, lol...and it can take a few minutes of mucking around if you are meticulous with bright, deep contrasting colours...the S6 does this better than the G4, but as you have said, shootingin RAW/DNG format allows you countless possibilities if you have the program and are prepared to learn and/or spend time in Lr fixing it up.

I would use manual mode and set the shutter speed to as fast as possible. Or use auto mode with fast shutter to capture multiple shots.. you'll have to do some experimentation :)

Not seen a 5:4 aspect in a while but it works well here.

What are your major uses for snapseed ? i can see it was used for cropping, adding filters here & there. anything else.
Thanks! It wasn't intentional.. I Just cropped it until I thought it looked good!

I use it for pulling out some of the shadows with the "Ambience" control. I also like to bring out some details and sharpness depending on the image. I have used it to add blur and do some spot repairing in some images as well as use the brush to increase/reduce saturation in specific areas. I like the fact you can edit your history and even mask out areas of a certain effect, very useful!

The one thing i've always wanted was a levels correction but i've not seen any app on mobile that does it as reliably or as simply as on the pc.

Not auto, just let me set markers with a histogram.
