Macro iPhone Photography: Up Close & Personal With a Macro Lens

Made for nature photographers, food porn lovers, and creatives who obsess over the details — the Moment Macro lens is every photographers' favorite tool.

Macro Photography For Your Smartphone

A macro lens may be niche, but it's an astounding tool for the detail-orientated. Moment's famous and best-selling mobile lens promotes clarity, rich color, and high-quality detail in tandem with your smartphone technology. This isn't a cheap gimmick; it's highly-attuned engineered glass for your camera phone. It's also well-reviewed for a reason.

Range: 10x as close

When To Use It: Made for nature photographers, food porn lovers, and creatives who obsess over the details. Marvel at the details of a ladybug in your garden or inspect the intricacies of a handmade piece of jewelry.

Overview: Great for extreme close-ups of flowers, insects, food, and other objects with fine detail. Unlike traditional macro photography, this lens has a fixed focal distance. It works about an inch away from the subject to capture rich textures, materials, and living things that our phones (and eyes!) were never before capable of seeing. It works like a little magnifying glass on your phone. With the sharpest glass imaginable and the most impressive bokeh you can capture with your phone, the Moment Macro Lens is perfect for getting lost in the tiny details.

Macro is Sensational

Macro photography is the art of up-close magnifications of a particular person, place, or thing. With digital advancements, photography has made shooting macro (without a pile of strangely specialized gear) like a piece of cake. This is especially true for mobile photographers and filmmakers looking to expand their horizons with Moment’s Macro Lens.

Shooting macro is an enticing act of patience: reaching into space and recording an image that is not easy for a human’s naked eye to comprehend. Few things are as satisfying as a huge print of a plant’s nucleus or a butterfly’s eyeball, no? Tiny mineral specimens are uniquely captured with macro lenses’ technique, proven by the myriad of images that show off their capabilities.

Diffuser for Even Light

Every Moment Macro Lens includes a removable diffuser hood that creates even, soft light when shooting tiny details. Shadows are the worst when capturing macro photography — so the removable diffuser hood presses onto the front of the lens to provide even, filtered light across the whole scene. At one inch long, it's also designed to serve as the perfect working distance for the lens.

Our V2 Lenses include our latest bayonet interface to guide and lock the lens into place. Relying on aluminum grade metal and a special hardening process, we ensure that each lens is strong and easy to mount. You can attach the lens with our non-electronic or Battery Case. Align the line on the lens's side, rotate it 90 degrees, and click it into place. You’re now ready to shoot.

Made From Aerospace Grade Metal

When you pick up a Moment Lens, you instantly feel the quality. This isn’t a cheap plastic lens that often clutters Amazon's marketplace. Instead, it’s made of aerospace-grade metal and the same hand-polished glass used for high-end 4K film lenses. It adds just enough weight to your phone without weighing you down. 

We believe in handcrafted quality that stands the test of time. Each lens is hand polished with multiple layers of glass and enclosed in machined aluminum. 

The curved shape of the hood provides a distinct visual look and a functional purpose to maximize image quality. And if you ever see a wavy, metal lens hood out in the wild... you know they are shooting on Moment.

You instantly feel the quality from the minute you pick up the lens.

Excellent Supplements to Wide Angle Shots

A practical example of Macro lens workflow would be to use macro images in a bigger set of photographic series; they act as excellent supplemental captures to wider shots that withstand more detail. This makes a Moment Macro Lens the photographer’s favorite tool — it’s the highest quality and deserves recognition for how crisp and clean it captures magnified subject matter. 

And because of its intentional nature, the macro slows down a creative's workflow to evenly capture every spec.
