Moment Anamorphic Lens – Cinematic Goodness!

The Moment anamorphic lens brings the cinema to your smartphone! You can shoot in an incredible anamorphic ratio to bring cinema quality to your videos!

An Anamorphic Lens:

Spherical lenses project a circular image onto the film whereas anamorphic lenses project an oval-shaped image.

Originally anamorphic lenses had a 2x squeeze, this meant that they captured twice the amount of horizontal information as a spherical lens.

A standard spherical lens at a ratio of 2.39:1 would only fill 50% of each frame’s area whilst an anamorphic fills 100%.

To fill 100% of the film an anamorphic lens compresses the projected image along the longer dimension, this means it needs to be stretched in post-production to display as intended.

The end result is an aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and a higher vertical resolution than a spherical lens cropped to the same ratio. (Medium)

The Anamorphic Lens with Blue Flare from Moment brings the early 1960’s cinematic look to your phone videos. The lens inspired from JJ Abrams films, gives you a brighter, sci-fi look when shooting into lights. So that’s headlights, streetlights or even directional lights. To create the anamorphic Lenses, Moment have tailored their blue coatings to produce a distinct flare which works well with all of the latest camera phones.
