Moment Launches New Third-Generation Camera Lenses for iPhone

Photography accessory company Moment today announced the launch of its third-generation lenses, which are its first add-on lenses that are designed for Apple's modern iPhones. T-Series lenses are compatible with both Android smartphones and iPhones, and there are multiple lenses available.

This is the first time that Moment has come out with new iPhone lenses since 2017, which was back when the ‌iPhone‌ 7 came out. Priced between $120 and $150, here are the new lens options:

  • Anamorphic 1.33x ($150) - Designed to bring a cinematic look to video capture on ‌iPhone‌. There are gold flare and blue flare options for the anamorphic flare look. Gold flare provides rich golden tones, while blue flare offers an early 1960s cinematic look. 1.33x works for photos and videos with less distortion.
  • Anamorphic 1.55x ($150) - Both of the Anamorphic lenses have a 20 percent wider aperture compared to the M-series lenses from Moment, along with a three-element design for better low-light performance. The 1.55x lens provides the most dramatic effect for video capture.
  • 58mm Telephoto ($150) - The 58mm telephoto lens offers 2x optical zoom, and it can be used with the built-in telephoto lens on Apple's Pro iPhones. There's also a 4x zoom option using the Moment app.
  • 18mm Wide ($130) - The 18mm Wide lens offers a wide-angle view similar to the Ultra Wide camera on the ‌iPhone‌, but with less distortion. It can be paired with the Ultra Wide camera for more zoomed out shots.
  • 14mm Fisheye ($120) - The 14mm Fisheye is a super wide-angle lens that has a 200-degree field of view. It can use the full image sensor on the newer iPhones with no vignetting or dark corners. This is a fisheye lens, so there is some distortion.
  • 10x Macro ($120) - The Macro lens can take zoomed-in images of small objects from an inch away. It pairs with the Wide for improved texture and detail compared to what you can get with the ‌iPhone‌'s built-in macro feature.

Using the lenses requires a compatible Moment case. Moment is offering cases for the latest ‌iPhone‌ models, and also plans to support the iPhone 15 when it launches. Pre-orders are available with an ‌iPhone 15‌ case, with the case set to ship out following the launch of new iPhones.

Pretty weird that Moment updated their anamorphic lens to be compatible with iPhone 14's camera earlier this year and decides to update the anamorphic lens AGAIN. Couldn't they have waited for the T series?

I think I'm done with Moment for a while.
I guess you’re saying Moment should’ve waited a moment to update their Anamorphic lens because now you’re done with Moment for a moment.

Phone lenses are dead to me.

* Built-in telephoto and macro has killed my need for these use cases
* My collection of Moment lenses became worthless when I got an iPhone 14
* Compatibility with the Peak Design mounting system is far more important

It makes no sense to invest in lenses that can (again) be killed with one iPhone camera iteration.

Bought something similar years ago , struck me as a gimmick

Rather rely on the built in camera , if you’re going to start adding all this stuff why not go the whole hog and invest in a d slr or a decent compact ?
