How to Make Videos in a SNAP with the LG V10

Photos are a great way to share a story, especially during travels, but more and more I’m loving how videos can be used in storytelling. And making videos doesn’t have to be just for the pros. With the new LG V10 smartphone, videos can be made in a SNAP. Here’s how!

Let’s look at is step by step, plus the finished product I created at a recent trip to a local dairy!

First off, you need to select the SNAP video function in the camera – all shots must be done in this setting. You can’t add any photos or videos taken outside of the SNAP function. When you are in the SNAP video function you click the record button for an automatic 3 second video snap to be taken.

These snaps can all build on each other for up to a minute long video. You can delete snapped video shots, but I have not seen a way to move the sections around, they have to remain in the shot order.

Once you’re done snapping shots, save the video. The 1 minute (or less) video will be found in your gallery.

When you open the video you’ll see a pen icon on the top that will allow you to edit the video.

You can leave the video exactly as shot with the ‘Original’ setting, or chose the Dreamy, Glow, Vintage, or Drama video settings. These will add overlays and special transitions to the video. You can also choose whether to have the recorded sound stay on in the video, the recorded sound will be heard with the video music in the background. The video music can be changed, you don’t have to keep the music that comes with the video theme. You can also add a title and author name.
