The dual camera setup on the back of the LG X Cam is similar to what we have already seen on LG’s flagship smartphone, G5. The setup includes two cameras – a 13-megapixel sensor to capture regular 78-degrees photos, and the 5-megapixel sensor, which in combination with the other sensor captures 120-degrees wide-angle photos. LG has also included some software tweaks for the camera app with effects such as fisheye, black and white, lens blur and vignette. There is also pop-out picture feature that combines two images taken to wide-angle and standard lenses to create a picture-in-picture effect.
