The LG G3 is LG’s latest flagship smartphone. It was announced not too long ago and apart from its QHD display, its camera was another feature that was highly touted by the South Korean tech company. This is due to the fact that the camera features optical image stabilization, allowing users to snap photos with as little camera shake as possible, and also features a laser that will help speed up the autofocusing.

So far we’ve seen how the LG G3 handles itself against the competition in still shots of scenery, food, animals, and whatnot, but how will it fare when taken into an active volcano to grab some shots with? Well that’s what LG has done when they tasked nature photographer, Jung-won Park, and adventure film maker, Geoff Mackley, to take the LG G3 to an active volcano to grab some shots with.

Given the fact that the molten lava was constantly on the move, and that they couldn’t exactly stay in one place for too long, if anything this exercise just serves to prove how useful the LG G3’s optical image stabilization technology is. We can also imagine that the laser will help the camera to quickly focus on the roiling lava to help grab some pretty cool photos, which you can check out in the video above.

We have to say that we’re pretty impressed with the photos, which goes to show that sometimes megapixels don’t really matter that much, but rather the camera’s technology and the photographer who is taking the shots. Although we have to wonder if taking a plastic LG G3 to an active volcano was such a good idea. In any case what do you guys think? Impressed?
