With a pre-release firmware, I used to be capable of seize impressively clear and sharp pictures even at 6x. After all, every other 10x optical zoom digicam would beat this hybrid resolution, however that is nonetheless a viable various, particularly given how useful the 3x optical zoom is available in for meals images and the brand new Hasselblad Portrait Mode — the latter claiming to simulate “the colours and depth of area of Hasselblad’s basic XCD30 and XCD80 lenses.”
