LG’s new optical telephoto camera will include an integrated telescopic camera capability that can capture high-magnification images with a zoom range of 4x to 9x. The new image sensor will enable it to take these pictures without sacrificing any image quality. The traditional fixed zoom module used in the industry only provides optical magnification in the designated zoom portions.
Devices with this sensor, like the one in this LG Telephoto Zoom Camera, will be able to get steadier recordings and eliminate blur in still images thanks to OIS. The brands that use it will also be able to conserve room inside the body of their smartphones because the module is smaller as well. Therefore, it is technically feasible to have a reduced camera bump or none at all.
The digital zoom allows for any additional magnification that is applied to the photograph. But LG Innotek claimed to have created a zoom actuator, which is a part that moves the lens to allow changing the focus distance. As a result, the telephoto shooter is not restricted to just the two degrees of magnification and can record clear photos in all portions between the 4x and 9x parts. Notably, OIS support is also provided for this camera technology (Optical Image Stabilization).
Price & Availability
The price of the new LG Telephoto Zoom Camera is not known yet. It is expected that we will receive more details about the price and international availability very soon.
