Hasselblad True Zoom

Moto Provide a great tool for camera lovers called Hasselblad True Zoom. Its biggest draw is the 10x optical zoom lens on the front. Unlike the digital zoom on the phone, this can zoom in without losing any quality until you get to the 10x limit, and it zooms digitally after that. Its f/3.5-f/6.5 aperture is modest, as is its highest resolution video capture which sits at 1080p at 30 frames per second.


Its sensor comes with 12 million pixels. It is capable of ISO up to 3200, while the lens has built-in optical image stabilisation for still photography. Like any good camera, you can adjust any settings like shutter speed, manual focus, f-stop, ISO, white balance and exposure. It can take great shots in low light as well. it uses a Xenon flash for a more even, brighter and sharper image in low light.
