Moment Lenses: High-Quality Lenses for Smartphones


Sun, Jan 19th, 2014 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

Moment Lenses makes no qualms in claiming that their lens are the best. They are small, beautifully made with quality material and created "using the same recipe in designing professional cinema glass for HD film." They're currently seeking your financial support on Kickstarter.

Taking the same proprietary process we have used the past 25 years in designing and manufacturing cinematic lenses, we created two prototype lenses that achieve previously unattainable image quality for mobile lenses.

Most existing mobile and iPhone accessory lenses are ok in the center of the frame but degrade quickly towards the edge of the frame. They also exhibit significant chromatic aberration and in most cases, significant geometric distortion.

The Moment optics are different:

We optimized multi-element designs using the same recipe in designing professional cinema glass for HD film. We then fabricate the lens elements in the same high precision optical manufacturing facilities that produce lenses for 4K cinema. We believe we are the first company to integrate such high end glass into mobile lenses.
