I first stumbled upon Moment on Kickstarter late last year and was taken in by their approach. They are a collection of builders who believe that the future of photography is in our pockets.
Finding that the camera we rely on the most, is our phones. Our phones are available, connected, and accessible. But despite their convenience they lack the ability of what traditional lenses can provide. Moment has set out on a mission to make the camera in our pockets, the best that it can be by empowering mobile picture takers with the best lenses in the world.
Just like us, Moment’s lenses like to travel. Moment didn't want anyone to have an excuse to leave them at home so the compact design fits well in your pocket, bag, or purse. Compact in size, its machined metal barrel gives you confidence in its quality from the minute you pick it up. Designed to let the glass speak for itself, we spent months crafting the industrial design, materials, and markings. Inspired by traditional lenses, they created a simple bayonet design that rotates and stop the lens into place. A compact carrying solution crafted from the finest grade English Bridle Leather is also available on their online store for pre-order in form of a collab with Stephen Jones of Black Anchor Workshop. Lined with premium microsuede, the holster allows you to carry your lens safely and easily wherever your adventures may take you. The spring steel clip allows you to hang it from a necklace or clip it to your pockets, belt, and straps for quick access – while the magnetic closure makes it extremely fast to get the lens in and out of the holster.
Moment brings the experience of 25 years designing beautiful cinematic lenses directly to your phone. Designed by our team from the ground up, these lenses capture better images than anything else on the market. We are proud of their quality and excited to see what you create.
Firmly stating “Moment is about more than just amazing lenses. It’s about enabling you to capture the moments you will never forget. It’s about making people happy through beautiful images. It’s about being open to the world about who we are and what we believe in. It’s about giving back to the community of creatives, artists, builders, and photographers”.
