The latest Viewty features an innovative Intelligent Shot Mode that “analyses the subject, background, and lighting conditions and compares the data against seven pre-programmed scenarios to take perfect pictures every time. Once the picture is taken, instantaneous feedback is provided, showing exactly how the camera is analyzing a particular scene.

“Boasting 8 megapixels of resolution means the LG Viewty Smart’s pictures are sharp enough for printing and framing as well as simply sharing online. The ISO setting can be set to a maximum of 1600, allowing shots previously considered too dim or dark to be captured even without using a flash. This can be further augmented with the phone’s LED flash. The LG Viewty Smart adds several new camera features including Multi Face Detection and DVD-quality D1 video recording. Other camera features include Touch Shot, Art Shot, Beauty Shot, Panorama Shot and Continuous Shot.

“An enhanced user interface adapted to the camera features
The LG Viewty Smart includes LG’s new easy-to-use 3D UI, which debuted on the LG Arena handset earlier this year. LG has tailored the UI around the LG Viewty Smart’s camera features with an on-screen dial which allows instant switching of shot modes and a thumbnail photo viewer that shows recently taken photos without having to switch to the photo gallery. Several touch options are available for zooming in and out, either a clockwise circle motion on the touchscreen to zoom in, and in the opposite direction to zoom out or using multi-touch pinching or stretching.

“The LG Viewty Smart also offers a great viewing experience with a wide, sharp 3-inch WVGA screen providing a full 800 x 480 resolution display. With 7.2 Mbps HSDPA network and Wi-Fi compatibility, photos can be uploaded over the internet from the handset. Also, the A-GPS feature enables geo-tagging pictures to the exact spot where they were taken. This device is set to offer 1.5 GB of internal memory with the option to expand to 32 GB using a MicroSD card.”

At 12.4mm thick, the Viewty Smart is the slimmest 8-megapixel cameraphone currently available.
