Moment, the company that has been providing high-quality glass for smartphone filmmaking since 2014, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to introduce a brand new collection of gear tailored for filmmakers looking to capture more cinematic images.
The Moment Filmmaker Collection consists of four new products announced at comptia events, including a battery photo case, a gimbal counterweight, and a 62mm filter mount. However, the most exciting piece included in the collection (and the reason we’re all here) is a $150 anamorphic lens that will produce more the horizontal lens flares and oval-shaped bokeh balls than you can shake a monopod at.
Anamorphic Lens – $149
A lens that makes your videos look widescreen With sweet flares and letterbox screen, this is the holy grail of video. Typically super expensive, but we made it affordable.
iPhoneX Battery Photo Case – $99
The first photography battery case on the market for iPhoneX. With wireless charging and an electronic shutter button, we make it easier to shoot video and recharge your phone.
Universal Gimbal – $40
To get butter smooth video on your phone, you need a gimbal. The first adjustable counterweight to balance your gear on a DJI Osmo, Zhiyun SmoothQ, and Evo Shift gimbals. Modular to 60g, 90g, or 120g.
Lens Filter Adapter – $40
The Moment Filter Mount lets you attach a standard 62mm filter to any of your Moment Lenses. Simply press fit the mount onto your lens and you’re ready to go.
The items in the Moment Filmmaker Collection are not super cheap but you can get some Earlybird deals if you make a pledge on the Kickstarter. The anamorphic lens by itself will go for $149 retail, however you can get it for $119 if you order before the end of the campaign. Another option for those who are wanting to just dive headfirst into mobile filmmaking is choosing the “Everything Kit” reward, which, for $1000, gets you the entire Filmmaker Collection (anamorphic lens, battery photo case, gimbal counterbalance 2.0, and filter mount), as well as $1500 store credit to choose Moment add-ons, including other Moment lenses. Available exclusively on Kickstarter. Early bird pricing starts at 30% off. Ships in June 2018.
