A big expectation for any device nowadays and especially a flagship level device like the Moto Z2 Force is to have a great camera experience. Users want to take pictures under a variety of conditions and then quickly share these with their social media world.
Motorola with this device has jumped on the dual camera trend by providing multiple cameras on the back of the device with both boasting 12MP and an f/2.0 aperture. The front-facing camera is rated at 5MP with an f2.2 aperture.
Video records up to 4K at 30fps and 1080p slow motion at 120fps. A con on shooting video is that there is no image stabilization which can lead to some shaky shots.
As for the still camera, a big difference from other dual devices is that the Z2 has one color and one that is dedicated black and white. The dual cameras allow for a depth effect that blurs the background behind the person or object selected by the shooter. Sure, there are many apps that have this as a post pic feature but being built into the device improves the quality image and allows for customization before the shot is taken. The ensures the final pic can be set up exactly to meet what you see on the screen.
I have found the Z2 Force camera to operate as expected in a variety of conditions although it did seem to struggle at times in low light conditions. Outside in full light, the pictures were true to life and colors popped.
The B&W camera is nice to have and the “true” black and white option make for a higher quality of photo over using a post pic filter. The real benefit is the fun blurring for an SLR look and the ability to change part of the background to B&W. This long-term may be more a novelty than something you would think to use all the time but I do enjoy playing around with the feature.
The camera menu for manual exposure and other changes is really cool with an on-screen display that allows for true on the fly customization for that just right look. Folks that are camera savvy will especially appreciate this feature.
The bottom line is the MOTO Z2 Force has adequately delivered the camera experience that should be expected from a device at this level.
