This is what 10x optical zoom on the Moto Z Play with Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mods looks like

 

One of the most exciting things that was churned out by the Lenovo folks at IFA 2016 were the Moto Z range, coupled with Moto Mods, specifically the delicious Hasselblad True Zoom module. On its own, the Moto Z and Moto Z Play are already kick-ass smartphones from the get go. But snap in that Hasselblad mod, and things become extra special.

MyBurgerLab with Casio Exilim EX-ZR20

MyBurgerLab with Casio Exilim EX-ZR20 11

This isn’t a food review per se. Perhaps more of a combination post that involves food (one of my greatest vices) and a certain, versatile, super compact Casio Exilim EX-ZR20 camera.  I recently had an opportunity to finally pay a visit to MyBurgerLab, a new generation burger joint with kick-ass homemade burgers. Thanks to fellow foodie and famous food/lifestyle blogger Rebecca Saw who made the arrangements, together with a couple of friends in tow, we visited the much-hyped, and super-crowded diner at Sea Park, Petaling Jaya.

As we wanted to try as much as we could, we took the liberty to order pretty much everything on the menu, including The Elvis (which is off-menu, and highly recommended. Thanks, Mark).

You’re looking at an average of about RM15.00 per burger which is a decent price to pay for a really good burger. Our total bill for 10 burgers came up to RM189.50. By the way, the fried mushrooms are the bomb.

MyBurgerLab Beautiful Mess: Doesn’t this just look completely enticing?

My favourite was Jam with Elvis. Succulent beef patty and blueberry. Unusual combination, but let me tell you, so so good. A definite must try!

What’s great about the burgers are that they are all made fresh with premium ingredients. Their charcoal buns are the brand’s appeal. Not something common you’d find at any burger joint. If you’re a low-carbie, ask for a lettuce wrap instead.

Here’s a tip. Go early. The queue is out of this world, and burgers may finish by 8-8.30pm.

Hasselblad Unveils Lunar Compact System Camera at Photokina 2012

Hasselblad Lunar Leather Grip-900-75

At Photokina 2012, Hasselblad unveiled its first-ever compact system camera powered by a 24.3MP APS-C format sensor with 25 AF points – Hasselblad Lunar. The CSC can capture both stills and videos and will offer DSLR-like controls.

Hasselblad apparently has 30 different versions of its maiden CSC and does not currently know which ones will make the final cut for production.

The Hasselblad Lunar will be built from titanium, wood, leather, carbon fibre and precious metals with fit and finish Hasselblad is famously known for. Buyers have a choice of wood for finish.

In terms of specifications, the camera will be able to shoot at up to 10fps, with ISO sensitivity from ISO 100-16000. It will also come with a 3-inch high definition LCD/OLED display.

What’s great is that it will accept Sony E and Alpha (via adaptor) mount lenses. Strange but a welcome addition.

What’s not so great would be the price. Expect the Hasselblad Lunar to retail for around €5,000 (around £4,020/$6,525/RM20,500) for the base model with standard finish when it launches in the first quarter of 2013.

The compact system camera or mirrorless market is greatly competitive, currently dominated by the likes of SonyPanasonic and Samsung. Pro-level brands like Nikon and Canon are late entries into this space. Hasselblad can be considered a non-competitor as it doesn’t target the same price points nor the type of mass market audience the rest of the brands compete in.

So, do you want an Aston Martin or a Toyota?

Personally, I’d shell out 1/5 of the price for a Sony NEX-7. 😛

World’s Smallest Camera with USB 3.0!

 

Cameras come in all shapes and sizes, different megapixels, quality and colours. How about a camera, around 10cm (give or take) that can capture 4096×2160 resolution @ 21fps which comes with USB 3.0? Think its impossible? Well Point Grey, a company in Canada made this possible.

[ad#Google Adsense 336×280]

Using Sony’s new IMX1221 Exmor R sensor, this unit comes with a US$945.00 price tag. This sounds like something a wannabe spy would use or some really really rich kids planning some mischievous and devious acts. However, the camera does fit in your pocket easily, so, we do not have to spend so much money on protective cases or carry bulky camera bags around anymore.

Still, do not be surprised if you see a Smurf with this tiny camera at the park in near future.
