LG sure knows how to make a promo video – after sending their last flagship, the LG G3 into an active volcano to help advertise the camera and its laser focus, LG has tried to one-up themselves this year by strapping their new LG G4 to a drone and taking video while airborne. The effect is… well, check out the results for yourself:
Drones are all the rage right now, so it’s a smart move on LG’s behalf to make use of that burgeoning market space as a marketing canvas. As for the LG G4’s camera, there’s definitely beauty to what was captured, but we can’t exactly say that it’s all down to the camera. LG intended for this video to advertise its new optical image stabilization, and for the most part, it actually does a pretty amazing job, but it’s clear that the juddering of the drone was sufficient to overcome this feature at times. Still, it’s a cool ad, and we wish some of the other manufacturers were a bit creative like this sometimes with advertising relatively real-life scenarios – because we all own drones, right?
