Smartphones have solved a lot of problems for humans. By just carrying a smartphone we can literally do thousands of things.
Smart phones take pretty good photographs, but being human, we are never satisfied: fixed focal lengths, fixed dimensions, no wide-angle, no telephoto. And then there is envy we feel toward friends and family who can afford expensive cameras and lenses.
Now a number of lens makers (Photojojo, Gizmon, Holga, Mobi, Olloclip, Phogo, Tricloptic, Action Life Media, and others) including Moment, are aiming to make smartphone cameras so good that the high end cameras we envy will soon seem passé: clunky heavy and inconvenient as well as a waste of money.
Moment lenses currently work with iOS and Galaxy phones, two of the largest platforms. The lenses work with or without smartphone cases. A thin metal plate with rubberized adhesive safely secures the lens to a smartphone.
Currently, Moment offers:
- a wide angle len for $99.99 (see image below)
- a tele lens for $99.99 (see image below)
- a lens holster,
- an iPad Mounting Plate
- an iPhone Mounting Plate
- a Nexus Mounting Plate
- a Galazy Mounting Plate
