The camera is complemented by the world's first IPS Quantum Quad HD display providing a beautiful viewing experience on the 5.5-inch display and an elegant, optional leather back design or metallic back design (both included in box, and a curved form factor that fits comfortably in your hand).
"When I'm on the top of a building or snapping photos from a door-less helicopter I only have a few seconds to capture the perfect shot," said Jayscale, a Toronto-based photographer. "The advanced camera features in the LG G4, which include the option to output raw photo files, have allowed me to take my photography to new heights. I am excited to partner with LG to deliver a series of photos in the style of this new emerging art form taken from new perspectives. I'm happy the photos will raise money to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions."
Jayscale's Top Tips for Sky scraping Shots
  1. Be safe, get permission. Take advantage of accessible sky scraping locations like rooftop patios and tourist attractions like the CN Tower or the Empire State Building. These spots have some of the best views.
  2. Smartphone cameras like the LG G4's are easiest to work with – shoot in manual mode so you can better control the exposure, white balance and manipulate the shutter speed.
  3. Export photo files in raw format for improved editing flexibility.
  4. It's all about unexpected perspectives. Experiment with camera angles and light   levels.
  5. Share your images with the world – social media is a great way to get noticed and get feedback.
  6. Smartphones like the LG G4 are a great starting point for learning composition and capturing spectacular shots.
