    Has anyone with the Moto Z Play tried the Hasselblad MotoMod? A lot of reviews say it's not better than the Moto Z Force, but was wondering if there was a visible quality difference with the Z Play. And if anyone is selling theirs, let me know

    Other than the zoom capabilities, I doubt it's as good as the Z Play camera either, but I don't have the mod.

    Tried it in a Verizon store. Even though it was well lit, the stupid thing took 3-5 seconds to focus, and shutter speed was extremely slow (1 second) as well. Until they fix the focus, the Hasselblad mod is a flaming piece of crap.

    I also hear that its aperture is extremely small: it's 2.2 at the lowest zoom setting, and it increases as you zoom more, so it's useless for low light situations.

    I'm happy with it. It has OIS which the Play lacks.

    Here are some pics. Auto mode, the camera chose a low ISO and a slow shutter.

    This review wraps up everything nicely (mod vs Z Force)

    The mod has a great zoom and a better flash. Everything else the built in camera wins.

    The aperture is even worse than that: f3.5 at the widest and f6.5 at full telephoto. Even cheap kit lenses on most DSLR cameras aren't that bad!

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm really interested in it because of just how cool it is, but don't want to shell out $200-300 for it. I'll wait a few months when people sell them for $100 on eBay :P

    If they can fix the focus via software update, it might be pretty nice for some situations. That slow focus really does kill it though.

    It's on sale at Verizon for $199 so I just went for it. Will report back on picture/video quality when I get it.

    I got one and played with it for a week. Only good thing is telephoto. I expect a much better Mod that will use the internal camera.

    Thanks. I'm hoping they come out with one that will have let's say 3x optical zoom, and a once inch sensor, with 20mp, but that might be just wishful thinking.
