Moment Air – Anamorphic Lens Adapters for DJI Drones

Moment Air - Anamorphic Lens Adapters for DJI Drones

Moment, the company famous for making anamorphic adapters for iPhones, is back on Kickstarter with a new line of products for DJI drones: Moment Air. These products consist of a 1.33x anamorphic lens adapter, some ND and CPL filters, and a new extra-slim iPhone case which is compatible with the Moment lens. Let’s take a closer look at these new products for the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom drones.

Moment Air – Drone Anamorphic Lens

The first product in the Moment Air line of products is the anamorphic drone lens. This 1.33x anamorphic adapter gives you a 2.40:1 Cinemascope aspect ratio after de-squeeze. You’ll also find in this adapter the typical/characteristic anamorphic horizontal flares. The lateral chromatic aberration should be minimal thanks to various coatings applied to the front element.

The anamorphic drone lens attaches to the front of your DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom drone using a special cage that they call the “Lock and Balance” mounting system. It’s a two-part cage with the lens on one side, and a counterweight on the other, so it doesn’t affect the drone’s camera gimbal balance. This adapter uses a premium glass and a super-light composite housing to keep the lens under 50g’s in total weight.

It is compatible with the Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro. Finally, in front of the lens, you still can attach a Moment Airlight ND or CPL filter.

Moment Air – Airlight Drone Filters

The second product in the Moment Air range of products are the Airlight drone filters. These lightweight CPL and ND filters are made of aerospace-grade aluminum, making them the lightest filters available for DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom drones. The filters clamp-on directly to the front of the camera.

Optics wise, Moment claims that these filters deliver the “smoothest, crispiest, color-neutral image imaginable” by using cinema-grade glass. Also, the Airlight drone filters are hydrophobic, scratch-resistant, anti-reflective, and color corrective thanks to special coatings applied to the front element.

Ultra Thin Photo Case

Finally, the Ultra Thin Photo Case is an iPhone case compatible with the iPhone XR/XS/XS Max. This case only weighs 12 grams and is 0.75mm thick. It’s one of the thinnest case available so that it will fit your drone controller easily. I like this idea, as I’m usually pretty tired of removing my iPhone case to make it fit the DJI controller. There is an open spacing at the bottom of the case to make it easy to connect a lighting cable, microphone, or light.

On the back of the case, there is an M-Series mount. This mount lets you attach a Moment lens directly to the Ultra Thin Photo Case. The case is made of glass blend polycarbonate composite + TPU.

Pricing and Availability

The Moment Air is a Kickstarter campaign, and it’s already live.

The Drone Anamorphic Lens is $199, the Airlight Drone Filters are $99, and the Ultra Thin Photo Case retails for $25. All three products should ship in November.

Moment is a company based on crowdfunding campaigns, and all the Moment Air products seem to be finished products. But, as usual, please keep in mind that Kickstarter is not a shop or market place. There are certain risks when backing a project.

Will the anamorphic fit DJI Pocket Go? it’s supposed to have the same camera of the Mavic 2

Except for stretched flares the look is just regular. That’s because there’s no foreground/background.

Oh no, not another kickstarter project! So, their previous products havent been a success, so they need funding for the new, or was it just the expensive trip for 5 people to Iceland that emptied their bank accounts?

Christer J Dahl, what’s the issue?. Like it/want it, support it. Don’t like it, move on.

Thank you

This looks awesome!

When using the anamorphic attachment, does the horizontal FOV change as you zoom in and out on the Mavic 2 Zoom? Of course your overall FOV changes as you zoom, but I would imagine that because you’re zooming in on a central portion of the cylindrical glass element, that you don’t have as much horizontal information being squished into the image as you would on the wide end, or on a prime anamorphic lens of an equivalent focal length who’s glass elements were designed for that FOV. Am I thinking about that correctly? Hope that made sense.
