The Moto Z is already a good looking phone (have you seen the black and rose gold variant?), However, the new Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod is one series piece of eye candy.
It gives you 10x optical zoom, using a 1/2.3-inch 12 MP sensor, with a 1.55 micron pixel size. It shoots in RAW, you get a real Xenon flash, along with full manual Focus, white balance, f-stop, ISO and exposure controls. The little downside is that it shoots only 1080p video, but it does add OIS to the mix. You will also get Dual Microphones and a 3.5 mm headphone jack for those who were missing it on the slim Moto Z.
The Hasselblad True Zoom, is pretty identical in form and design to the Sony Q series lenses, considering that Sony now has a partnership with Hasselblad, much like Panasonic has one with Leica (both uber premium range manufacturers), this strategy was ported over to the Moto Mod.
Moto Z and the Z force are modular just like the LG G5, however, the biggest difference remains that Moto Z’s Moto Mods do not require you to remove the battery and re-insert the module like they do on the LG G5. The Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod also works with the similar principle. It Attaches to the back of the Moto Z, Moto Z Play or Moto Z Force (Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z Play Droid in the US) and the phone automatically recognises it.
Early reviews have pointed to really sharp and quick images, with excellent low light capabilities. Which is what is expected from a large sensor. The Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod uses the phone’s battery so no recharging the Mod, it also saves images directly on to the phone storage or micro SD, which means no hassle of transferring.
