Landscape, travel, and humanitarian photographer Colby Brown, who recently explained what makes the rear-facing shooter on the new LG G4 so special, is back to show us how to take great smartphone photos.

In the four-minute video below, Brown offers five tips that will help you shoot better images, like using manual modes to adjust ISO, shutter speed, and white balance.

Leaked specifications for a third-generation Moto X suggest Motorola will address one of the biggest complaints fans had with the existing model — its camera. The new device is expected to have a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with all the features you’d expect from a high-end phone.

The awesome new cameras packed into the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are about to get even better, with improvements and new features on the horizon. Sources familiar with Samsung’s plans say the changes will come with its new Android 5.1.1 upgrade.

Every smartphone maker promises us great photos from its latest devices, but few Android handsets are actually capable of taking them consistently. That’s not the case with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, which are just as impressive as Samsung said they would be.

In the latest DxOMark tests, the trusted industry standard for camera and lens quality ratings, the Galaxy S6 edge’s 16-megapixel camera beats out the iPhone 6, the Galaxy Note 4, and all other competitors with top marks.

Based on the specifications LG has already confirmed and a few unofficial leaks, we know the company’s upcoming G4 is going to be pretty special. If taking great photos is important to you, it could well be your next upgrade.

The photographs below were all taken with the G4’s new “professional grade” camera, which has a 16-megapixel sensor and f/1.8 aperture — and they are jaw-droppingly good.
