    Played with the camera mod today. It's soft and shows substantial more noise than the Force camera. Maybe worth it outside in the sun for having the zoom. Maybe just needs software tweaks, but I don't recommend it. I'd post the picture, but it's of the inventory room at our store and I'd probably get in trouble.

    I've read reviews on it.

    Apparently, it's not good at all, especially for the price.

    $250 for additional zoom? No thanks. You can buy a crappy point and shoot for like $100 that would probably take better pictures.

    As an overall rant, I think the price of all the mods should be under $100. Paying 1/3 the cost of a phone for something that will be used less than 1/3 of the time (probably) that you use the phone is ridiculous.

    Not sure if it was actually in stock or if it was just the demo but I bet it's available to order.

    That's not what I expected from HassleBlad. Oh well. Maybe Canon and Nikon makes something similar and uses a better sensor. Doubt Sony will make anything and take away from their smartphone business.

    Sounds like the only thing to hold against HassleBlad in this case is that they'd license their name to someone using such underwhelming hardware, since it sounds like they had little to do with the device itself.

    This mod was on my list to get also. I'm not going to even look at it. Doesn't make any since to produce such a great mod and it not make the phone better or enhance user experience. Maybe they will mod this mod before too long lol

    It makes it worse. Hell all accounts I've seen the stock camera takes better pics. Maybe other than zoom. Hell with that. Hasselblad is a sell out. IMO they are crazy to ruin their reputation with a POS camera they didn't make and instead licensed their name. That's crazy

    The stock does take better. I don't know why they didn't go with a bigger sensor and a wider aperture. If it was $50 more to have that it might have been a buy

    It was interesting in that review that the Z Play in their test shots fared better than the Z. Of course, it was a small sample size and not what they were testing.

    I can't help but wonder if a better approach would be to stick a magnet on the back of a Sony QX-10.

    The QX10 has better quality but also costs more.

    Click the link, it's $230 on Amazon, Prime eligible. I believe it was more when first released, but now it can be found cheaper.

    Oh yea that's the one with the 10x zoom. The quality on that one is very similar to the Hasselblad.

    The QX100 is the one with the big sensor.

    I've been using the camera mod for about 2 weeks and must say I am very happy with it. I find it performs much better with 3rd party camera apps such as camerlingo and zoom fx.

    That's quite the vignetting ... hmmmm. Not what I would expect from Hasselblad optics.

    Ya really think you're getting Hasselblad optics for $250 or $300?

    It's Hasselblad in name only, nothing more than a marketing deal.

    I would love to get a real camera attachment with a decent sensor size and quality optics

    Really hoping that for next year. I have it, and I'm pretty satisfied with it. Great as a vacation or outdoor camera. Not so great if you're into indoor pictures.

    I've only had it for a day and taken a few shots with it which were comparison shots with the Z Force.


    The Z Force did a much better job with light and color from a distance, while the HB not surprisingly has more detail with the wall close up.
