Moment is a smartphone lens manufacturer that began on Kickstarter in 2014. Now they make a range of smartphone lenses that you can use with their special cases as well as other complementary accessories such as travel cases, gimbal counterweights and straps, just to name a few items.
Let’s say hello to the lenses.
We have the Wide Lens which is 18 millimetres; the Telephoto Lens, which is 60 millimetres; the Superfish, which has a 170-degree field of view.
All Moment lenses come with a cap to protect the glass, as well as a little cloth bag for storage. The lenses mount to the Moment case using a twist and lock system, and they’re pretty easy to put on or take off. You will align the lens to the line of the case and twist it until the M shows. Then you’re ready to rock and roll. If you shake it, it feels pretty secure, which is good because these aren’t cheap lenses.
The moment lenses feel like premium lenses. The aerospace grade metal housing, the high-end glass and the weight all combined to reinforce the quality of these lenses. They’re beautifully designed and built. Your smartphone camera becomes even more amazing with the Moment lenses because they give you a wider field of view.
Let’s check out some shots.
With the Wide lens, you can capture double the field of view and get crisp, clear, dynamic images without much edge distortion. Comparing the image from my iPhone 8+ native camera to the Wide Lens, Moments Lens allow me to capture much more of the landscape. You can see more of the image without distortion, blurring or vignetting around the edges. They’re really ideal for showing off cityscapes and landscapes.
Moment’s 170 degrees Superfish lens gives you that curviness around the edges that you would expect from a fisheye effect, but without the vignetting that comes with other fisheye lenses. The edges are also really crisp, and you get a lot more picture in, especially when you compare it to the image from my native iPhone 8+.
The shot looks great. I think it looks great.
And last but not least, the Telephoto, the 60-millimetre lens gives you 2x zoom, allowing you to get a closer shot without having to zoom in and sacrifice the image quality. You can see the blurred edges, but the centre of the image is sharp, which makes your subject stand out and gives it a distinct look. Some people may not like the purple fringing, but I think the image is still beautiful, especially if you take a lot of portrait images or landscape images with a lot of detail.
Now, let’s check out some video footage with the Moment lenses in action. I’m using the lenses with my Moment case, my iPhone 8+, my Zhiyun mobile gimbal with a moment gimbal counterweight, which you can see here.
Overall, the moment lenses add some charm and perspective to your mobile photography and video, making your already excellent smartphone camera, absolutely stellar. I think they’re definitely worth the investment and anyone can use them to get beautiful photos and video with ease.
