Moment fisheye 14mm lens is the newest addition to Moment’s line of smartphone lenses. It features 170° FOV and bi-aspherical design for edge-to-edge sharpness. With the new Moment Pro Camera app, the distortion of this lens can be corrected. It is available now for $89.99 the first 48 hours, later for $119.99.
The US company Moment is well known for their smartphone lenses and accessories. When I take a look at Moment’s webshop, I can see they offer already a wide range of lenses for their system. They have 1.33x anamorphic lens, 18mm wide lens, 58mm telephoto lens, macro lens, and Moment even already offers 170° FOV fisheye lens in their portfolio. Now, the company is announcing another fisheye lens. Why? Let’s take a look at its features and try to find the answer.
Moment Fisheye 14mm Lens
The new Moment Fisheye 14mm (full frame focal length equivalent) Lens features an entirely new optical design created for the latest camera phones (like the Pixel 4, iPhone 11, One Plus 7, and Galaxy S10). According to the company, the lens includes a unique, bi-aspherical design that uses 15% more of the image sensor than Moment’s fisheye 15mm (previously called Superfish Lens).
Thanks to the bi-aspherical optical design, the image should be sharp from edge to edge. The front of the lens is slightly curved to support this new aspherical element.
The field of view is the same as the previous Moment fisheye lens at 170°, which is 30% wider image than the 120° found on ultra-wide phone lenses. The company claims, that this lens is sharper than the ultra-wide phone lens and works in Night mode (the ultra-wide does not).
Moment is marketing this lens towards users who are thinking about getting a GoPro. They say it will deliver similar results for 1/3rd of the price (given you already have the Moment phone cover to mount this lens).
Moment Pro Camera app is introducing distortion correction for this new lens. You can slide to correct the bending of the image. This feature is currently available for iOS only. It is coming to Android in the next few weeks.
The lens is compatible with Moment phone covers, which are available for most smartphone flagships.
Pricing and Availability
The new Moment fisheye 14mm lens is available now. The price has been set to $119.99, but Moment offers this lens exclusively at a reduced price of $89.99 for the first 48 hours.
