Moto Z camera mod leaked to be made by Hasselblad

The Moto Z, actually the Moto Z Force Droid, was already rated to have one of the best smartphone cameras in town. But who's to say it can't be made better? Moto definitely doesn't think so. As leaked before, there is still one, or two, official Moto Mod missing from the first batch that Lenovo and Moto unveiled in June. That is the "Pro" camera mod, which is now leaked to be called the "True Zoom Camera" mod and is being made by famed camera and lens maker Hasselblad, adding not just physical controls to the already competitive setup.

Nikon COOLPIX W100 adds a bit of whimsy to a rugged camera

Who said digital cameras need to be all about serious business? With smartphones eating at their profits, camera makers have been piling up serious features for their cameras.

Sony Xperia X Performance climbs to #1 (or 3) in DxOMark

HTC and Sony seem to have some things in common as far as smartphones go. Both have put out strong looking 2016 flagships that, on paper, looked commendable. Both, however, seem to have problems backing that up with solid sales numbers. On a positive note, both also happen to be at the very top of DxOMark's smartphone camera list. The digital photography benchmark site has given the Xperia X Performance a glowing score of 88, so far the highest in the list, rubbing shoulders with the HTC 10 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.

Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 Printer Review

Initial setup for the Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 printer is exceedingly user-friendly and simple. The entire process is laid out for the user piece-by-piece, cartridge-by-cartridge.

We were provided several sets of Canon paper with which to test, while this device also works with 3rd-party papers from brands like Canson and Inkpress (with Canon-defined software profiles, that is to say).

DxOMark shows how the Huawei P9 stepped up its camera game

Huawei is quite proud of its Huawei P9 flagship. Proud enough to hire high profile actors Henry Cavill and Scarlett Johansson to, just for a few minutes, root for the smartphone. Of course, the highlight of the device is it camera. Or cameras rather, one in full color and one in monochrome, certified by famed German camera maker Leica. Fortunately for Huawei, its investment paid off. At least that's what DxOMark is showing with its side by side comparison of the Huawei P9 and its predecessor, the P8, demonstrating how far the Chinese OEM has come in taking digital photography seriously.

Moto Z Force Droid camera is second best, claims DxOMark

Cameras have become a critical aspect of smartphones for the past year or so, to the point that now almost every new flagship is waiting in line for a DxOMark verdict. While definitely not the only game in town, the name has become synonymous with digital camera benchmarks. Which is why Lenovo, Moto, and Verizon should count themselves fortunate that the site has just given the Moto Z Force Droid the second highest score so far, second only to the HTC 10 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and surpassing any of Apple's iPhones.
