Playing with the Moment Wide Lens
My conversion into iPhone filmmaker is complete! Well, not exactly but I have been enjoying my new wide angle lens from Moment.
A few weeks back YouTube started recommending videos to me on iPhone videography, which was probably fortuitous considering my adventure with the Canon C100 was short-lived. Nonetheless, I’m excited to see just how far I can take my videos, especially the ones for work, with just my phone.
Moment’s a cool company in Seattle that specializes in lenses for mobile phones. I definitely recommend checking our their YouTube channel because they have a lot of great instruction there. I also really, really enjoy the two hosts of the videos. They have these really great personalities. Hell, I bought the lens just on the strength of their channel, and have another lens and case on the way.
Only downside of my purchase was that I chose the battery case, which seems to be having difficulties being recognized by the special app you have to download, and that it won’t let my external microphone work either. Other than that, very happy with my purchase.
Update: Just needed to “reset” the case.
Here are some photos I’ve taken with the lens, and i’ll be updating this as time goes on. It is just day 1 and my neighborhood isn’t exactly the most interesting to shoot.
