Gadget of the Week – Moment Lens
Published on January 27, 2016
The camera we rely on the most is the one in our pocket.
But as convenient as our phones are, they lack an important element that we miss with our traditional cameras— unique lenses with the ability to maximize the creativity of what we can capture.
Moment, a company that has been producing high-end cinematic lenses for years, set out to create top quality lenses to empower mobile picture-takers everywhere. They wanted John and Jane America to be able to capture incredible images with their phones.
And gosh darn it, they did it.
Here's what they came up with: the Tele Lens and the Wide Lens. Two lenses for all occasions.
The Wide Lens photographs sprawling panorama with little distortion. Moment engineered the lens to take in more image without bending or distorting it. Pretty cool.
The Tele Lens gets you right up in the action with no degradation to the photo. It’s ideal for family portraits, zoo trips, and travel.
The Tele and Wide lenses retail for $99 each, and include a mounting plate for the chosen device, extra adhesive for the mounting plate, and a microfiber cloth carrying case.
Moment's products are compatible with iPhone 6+, iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4/4s, iPad Air/Mini (1-3), Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 4, Nexus 5.
Moment was founded by people who love to take pictures and it shows. You can find out more about them here.
