We’ve seen numerous camera experiments where a traditional smartphone manufacturer partners up with a photography company to improve the cameras on our phones. Most famously, the long term relationship between Carl Zeiss and Nokia. More recently, we reviewed the P9, which publicly kicked off a relationship between Leica and Huawei.
Circling back to a product we were very excited to hear about when it was announced, Motorola’s first MotoMod relationship with a camera company aimed for the stars in landing Hasselblad branding on a replacement camera system for the Moto Z. If you slap a name like Hasselblad on a photography product, we’re going to have exceedingly high expectations.
