On article Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod hands-on preview (154 comments in total)

Dear Hasselblad, please shake hand with Olympus! They have an excellent lens set for this small sensor from XZ-10 compact camera (F 1.8-2.5 25-120mm) !

Or let them introduce you XZ-1 which has a fantastic combo of F 1.8-25 28-110mm & 1/1.7"sensor. (Pentax and Casio used that also!)

But if you keep on zooms; then go add their stylus 1 cameras out of the world sensor&lens combo (1/1.7" F 2.8 28-200mm). There is nothing to shame, just take things professionally and keep your customers happy!

Hasselblad & Lenovo focus to consumers' wallet :D

A great idea, not so great camera in my opinion.

Why no bright lens...coz the zoom!
Why no bigger sensor... coz the zoom!
Ok, you have a tripod joint right?

COZ THE ZOOM!!!

EXCELLENT IDEA & PRODUCT! (coupled by those pins)

But I still wished to see a brighter zoom. Smilar to the one which Olympus XZ-10 has! Or wished to see a little bigger sensor as Fujifilm X compact cams. (2/3" inches right ?)

But still, it has pretty long zoom! Which is as excellent. And hopefully it has a tripod joint!

Ben O Connor: Dear Lenovo/Moto whatever... Please make an agreement by Olympus. They had such a great camera coupled with strong optics back then called XZ and Stylus camera range. Those cameras were very strong in terms of photography that Pentax and Casio also made their own (Pentax MX-1 , Casio ex-whatever)
Olympus can make such camera which has lacking of rear screen, where we can stick a moto x camera by its 16pins magnetically. And photos can record directly to phones memory as well as sd card!!! And when we don't use the camera, it can be shut down and phone can be taken off from it. It would be a FANTASTIC VALUE for motorola/Lenovo and for us Olympus lovers, who are really keen on final image quality at any conditions of any photography!

Thanks Taikitso. That magnetic pin stuff is excellent (looks like). Things can be connected without being fiddly.

So why not make a HiFi mp3 module (the phone has no headphone input) or proper p&S camera with proper controls (except for the rear screen!) ! Instead of a projector really, which is also a good idea just may not suit masses.

Ben O Connor: Typical Chinese branding

Well, brands has a production facilities in China has excellent product in terms of reliability. (Apple, Sony, Panasonic... Simply anything!) But Chinese companies are usually copying stuff (stuff; A to Z !) Don't believe ? Check Beijing auto show you'll see what I mean.

But now, finally! We have Huawei, which is very serious and confident company. They made deals with Google (Nexus 6P) and Leica (P9)... But... Hang on... suddenly, something very un-Huawei. Disappointing.

Well, it is not slavery. It ia just a bad marriage with a windows phone !

She is so capable of EVERYTHING! Yet she can't, because she is married. I don't allow her bitching with all apps of any stores :D

Apart from joke; yes, app wise Lumia 1520 is a bit unfortunate. But still, I want to decide myself to take photo where! It's not a partnership! I own the F...KING phone?!

A must visit place in India. (For the record; I watch a street medium/large format photographer video on youtube. He was shooting photos and developing the thing in the broad day light! In the middle of the busy street!!!! Everyone in India are talented, it was another problem(?) for them to maintain)

Are there "anything" to fix about that camera ? Even for previous version of it (D800) ?

Please Nikon, do something useful. For example; make 50mm F 1.4 FX lens and D810 combo price for 500€ for a few days :D
