Looking for a bargain camera? The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS – Best Vlogging Camera Under $300 may be your choice. Let’s cover this exciting – basically confirmed – rumor about Lenovo’s latest phones from top to bottom. First, Lenovo is coming out with two new phones, the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force. Camera company Hasselblad is partnering with Lenovo to equip both these phone models with cutting edge modular camera technology. This will allow customers to equip a variety of impressive accessories onto the smartphones themselves to augment their photo-taking abilities.
Of course, we don’t know everything yet. We know that the accessories from Lenovo, called MotoMods, will include more than just camera upgrades – they’ll also feature abilities like an additional battery pack, a projector, or an extra set of mobile speakers. However, the Hasselblad camera attachment appears to be both the most exciting and the most secretive: It covers a large part of the smartphone’s back, and appears to have a 10x optical zoom lens that can take some serious photos, and includes laser autofocus abilities as well as other features primarily seen only in digital and DSLR cameras. All in all, it looks very cool and we keep taking glances at our best DSLR cameras of 2018 list, wondering if this new innovation belongs somewhere there.
It’s exciting stuff, but we’re still a little short on details. For example, we don’t know much about the other Moto spec, at least not until Lenovo provides some official information. Also, we’re not sure how all these add-ons, especially the Hasselblad option, will work with phone cases – it looks like you won’t be able to use a phone case with the new Motos, or at least only one that you can pop off at a moment’s notice.
However, this modular approach is very exciting: What does it mean for digital cameras? Are they going to be able to compete with smartphone accessories that you can keep in your pocket – and which provide similar specs? Tell us what you think.
