Top 15 Gifts for Filmmakers

From the filmmakers at Moment, here’s what inspires us.

Filmmaking is getting bigger and bigger every year. Gear is an important aspect to a filmmaker’s tool box, and helping the creative in your life with the gadgets they want is crucial. From drones, lenses, tripods, filters, and more — there’s always something else they could use.

Taking inspiration from the filmmakers at moment, as well as our friends within the filmmaking community, here’s our top 15 products that you should gift the video lover in your life.

Backyard Frames018 2

Moment Cine 37mm CPL Filter

Moment Cine 37mm CPL Filter

Price: $49.98 (9% off)

CPL filters are kinda like a magic trick of a filter. Once you use one, you’ll wonder why you’ve never used one before. It makes for bluer skies, greener trees, deeper waters, and allows you to shoot through glass. Best part about these little guys is that you don’t need a mount, simply screw one of these bad boys to your Moment case and voila!


5 Must-Have Gifts for the Mobile Filmmaker

Rode VideoMirco Microphone

Lumecube Mount Mavic 2 Pro

Drone Light Mounts for Mavic 2

Price: $39.99

To illuminate your subject from above when flying your drone we love the LitraTorch 2.0 Drone Edition, but need it to be secure and fit well to the drone. These drone light mounts from Lume Cube are the best we have tested on the market.


DJI Mavic Mini Review 20

DJI Mavic Mini

DJI’s Mavic Mini

Price: $499.00

This is the perfect drone for beginners. It’s super lightweight, portable, and couldn’t be easier to fly. If you are already deep in the drone game, this is a great one to add to your arsenal for whenever you need something lightweight. It fits in your hand and for the size of the drone, the battery life is also awesome (30 mins) and a big improvement over the DJI Spark.


Moment Filmmaker Collection

FreeFly Movi

Freefly Movi 

Price: $299.00

This is a must for any filmmaker looking for buttery smooth shots. The Movi is a smart, capable cinema robot designed to bring professional camera moves to your iPhone (yes, only iPhone). Movi’s incredible stabilization technology is the same found in Moment’s professional rigs — only smaller, more portable, and easier to use.



Moment Anamorphic Lens

Moment Anamorphic Lens

Price: $149.99

The Moment Anamorphic Lens is the holy grail of filmmaking. It makes your videos pop with yummy flares, that wide screen look, and true black bars on top and bottom. It makes video on your phone not look like cell phone looks like an actual movie.

Switchpod - talking to the camera just got easier.

SwitchPod Tripod

Price: $99.00

If you have ever wrestled a gorillapod before, you know that while that piece is amazing for attaching your camera to oddly shaped and precarious spots (trees, streetlights, etc), it takes a good bit of time to get it from vlogging setup, to tripod setup. The new tripod from Switchpod solves that problem, allowing you to switch from tripod to vlog grip in a matter of seconds.


Introducing: Moment Air

Moment Drone Anamorphic Lens

Moment Drone Anamorphic Lens

Price: $269.99 ($30 off)

Juicy flares, true black bars, and that buttery cinematic look. Attachable to the front of your DJI Mavic 2 Pro, this lens uses our premium glass to get that wide angle shot without losing compression. And at only $300 you can save the $30K you would have spent getting a large format camera to shoot that Anamorphic look.


the best smartphone gimbals of 2019 DJI Osmo 3

Dji Osmo Mobile 3

Osmo Mobile 3

Price: $109.00 ($10 off)

DJi has been testing this bad boy for months getting a buttery gimbal system to work WITHOUT counterweights, and viola. Also, you can use any phone with our 37mm filters mounted to your case without a counterweight! This is huge. It means you can make your footage look cinematic with the click of a button, just throw your phone in the gimbal and immediately start shooting.


Moment Gnarbox 2 0 Lifestyle 35



Price: $599.00

There are times and places where we would rather leave our laptop at home - namely hiking treacherous peaks in Norway or on multi day backpacking trips. But those are where you find some of the most epic photo spots - and a laptop is not rugged or light enough to come along. That’s the problem Gnarbox set out to solve. A backup storage solution that’s waterproof, weighs less than a pound, but also connects to your phone to allow for content viewing and organizing away from your computer.

It’s great to use in one hand while you roam with your camera in the other.
