Moment, a phone lens company which has branched out as a bona fide lifestyle brand, has released its new 14mm lens—and it’s wider than an ultra wide. In fact, the look of the lens could be described as “super wide,” with a 170 degree field of view, producing a 30% wider image than the 120 degrees you will find on standard ultra wide phones lenses. Moment brought the lens to The Berrics and let Chase Gabor, Chris Pierre, Jesse Driftwood, Colton Andrew Jacobs, and Shaun Hover play around with it. Check out the demonstration above!
The company is dubbing this lens a “full frame fisheye” because it allows you to use the full image sensor on the latest camera phones, including iPhone 11, with no dark corners or vignetting. This means you get a crisp image edge to edge, using 15% more of the image sensor than Moment’s 15mm fish. This lens is also sharper than ultra wide, especially on the edges. This is due to additional elements of bi-aspheric glass, an all new optical design, and the fact that the lens mounts over the built-in wide lens letting in 25% more light on top of a higher resolution camera. And, this lens works in Night mode while an ultra wide lens doesn’t. This is probably the widest and sharpest lens you can shoot on a phone.
