Starting with Kickstarter, the smartphone external lens manufacturer “Moment” has come a long way. The latest Moment 14mm Fisheye Lens now offers an even wider angle of view with superior quality over its ultra-wide 15mm Fisheye lens. Featuring an all-new cinema grade glass with 4 element bi-aspheric optics, this 14mm lens for smartphones eliminates vignetting issues and produces sharper results.
Although not truly full-frame, Moment calls this 14mm Fisheye lens as the full-frame lens since it gives the ability to utilize the full image sensor on the latest camera smartphones. Due to the new high-quality optics, it will help you to capture 25% more light than your smartphone camera. Additionally, it will provide 30% wider focal length. So if your phone supports an ultra-wide lens with a 120-degree field of view, you can extend that FOV even further with this lens up to 170 degrees.
Moment 14mm Fisheye Lens is compatible with the newest camera phones in the market supporting iPhone, Pixel, Samsung, and One Plus models. According to Moment, this lens is specifically designed to work with latest camera smartphones with three lenses.
Performance with iPhone 11 Pro
Let’s talk about its performance with the latest Apple iPhone 11 Pro. It provides 40% more field of view without any compromise in the image quality. One of the biggest advantage of using this 14mm lens with the iPhone is that you can get ultra-wide shots even in night mode. Although iPhone 11 Pro supports an ultra-wide lens, it does not work in night mode. You can simply use this 14mm fisheye lens with the wide lens (not ultra-wide) on the iPhone 11 Pro and you’ll get an extreme wide-angle view even in night mode.
The wide-angle lens on the iPhone 11 provides better quality than the ultra-wide lens. Unlike other wide-angle lenses, Moment 14mm Fisheye lens does not introduce dark edges or vignetting. The images turn out to be amazingly sharp even at the edges. So you get both wider angle as well as higher quality in night mode using this Moment lens.
This 14mm Fisheye lens belongs to the Moment’s M-series lenses and offers complete compatibility with their own M-series cases. Along with this lens, you can use its dedicated Pro Camera App to apply lens correction in seconds. As of now, this app is only available for iOS devices but it will also support the Android platform from mid-December.
Supporting a wide aperture of f/1.7, Moment Fisheye 14mm lens can work amazing under low light conditions. It incorporates multi-element glass with 3G/1A bi-aspheric design. To minimize glares and unwanted reflections, this lens uses multi-layer, low flare broadband anti-reflective coating. In terms of build quality, it boasts aerospace-grade metal construction which makes it sturdy and robust.
Moment 14mm Fisheye Lens costs $199.99 and offers a lifetime warranty. But you can get it for $89.99 USD as it’s on a promotional period right now. Along with the lens, you will get lens cap as well as a microfibre carrying bag. Check out all the other exciting Moment lenses on Amazon.
