This modular accessory for the new flagship adds physical controls to its camera and includes an additional 1200 mAh battery as well.

Although most consumers and reviews consider the new Galaxy flagships as the best top-of-the-line choices in the Android world right now, the LG G5 should not be overlooked. This new flagship has a semi-modular design, being able to use additional accessories simply called "friends" that can expand its capabilities as required. The most interesting one available at this time, CAM Plus, also comes cheaper than expected.

CAM Plus can be used to turn the LG G5 into a much better tool for taking pictures, its specs and features including the following:

  • camera grip and controls
  • exposure lock and autofocus
  • LED indicator
  • power, shutter, record, zoom buttons
  • 1200 mAh battery

Once installed on a G5, the CAM Plus brings its total bettery capacity to 4000 mAh, enough for a long photo session and then some. B&H has it up for pre-order at $69.99 USD. Unfortunately, this accessory is not in stock yet, but should be "coming soon."

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
