1. Wide 18mm Lens

Our Go-To Popular Lens

Range: 2x As Wide

When To Use It: Made for the everyday photographer and filmmaker, first-time mobile lens users, and those capturing landscapes, interiors, kids, and tabletop scenes. Capture the entire sunset from the top of your hike, not just part of it — document kids and pets without having to back up and miss the moment in the process.

Overview: Meet our 18mm Wide T-Series Lens, the perfect wide-angle lens for mobile photographers and filmmakers. An ideal choice for mobile photography and videography. Unlike typical phone lenses that produce distorted ultra-wide images, our lens delivers a wide yet authentic view due to its 6-element HD glass construction. This allows for a vast 100-degree field tailored for today's phone apertures. As a result, you can capture twice as much scenery with a more natural look, even in dim lighting. The 18mm focal length is versatile: perfect for capturing landscapes, city views, and architectural shots. Additionally, it's great for group photos, indoor shots, street photography, and vlogging, providing depth in the foreground and a broader range. It's your ideal companion for diverse photo and video needs.

2. Tele 58mm Lens

The Closest Things To a Mirrorless On Your Phone

Range: 4x Closer On A Dual Lens Phone with our Moment Pro Camera App.

When To Use It: Photographers who want close-up landscapes, action, and portraits. Filmmakers who want that compressed look. Capture the deer on your hike, the action on a soccer field, or the skyline from your hotel window. Its natural depth of field becomes even more dramatic when shooting on the newest devices, serving beautiful bokeh and creamy tones.

Overview: This telephoto lens has aged into a fantastic portrait lens. Sharp in the center with a natural drop-off on the edges, you can capture more intimate shots of people, nature, and still-life scenes. Designed for the broader apertures of the latest generation of phone cameras, the six-element design is precision polished to achieve an extra-low dispersion rate. Expect the same dreamy bokeh and natural background compression that comes from shooting through telephoto glass, with stunning clarity and better low-light performance at higher image resolutions.

3. Anamorphic Lens

The Holy Grail of Filmmaking

Range: Normal viewfinder, but it offers delicious flares, an unbeatable cinematic touch with true black bars, and gorgeous flares in either Gold or Blue.

Who’s It For: Perfect for any filmmaker or photographer who likes cinematic stills. Now you can shoot like the pros on your phone. Cylindrical optics and efficient vintage-style anti-reflection lens coatings create the highly desired horizontal flares associated with vintage anamorphic lenses.

Overview: The 1.55x Anamorphic T-Series Lens is our most cinematic mobile anamorphic yet. With a 20% wider aperture compared with our M-Series family, you can unleash the full resolution of the latest generation camera sensors in an epic 2.76:1 aspect ratio. This is backed up by a larger three-element design made from HD glass for increased clarity and low-light performance with the same iconic anamorphic flare.

The Gold Flare edition was inspired by the classic 1.5x Iscorama 54. Less sci-fi and more neutral, this combination gives you rich tones and golden flares with an ultra-wide format that will take your videos to the next level. This lens will make your videos pop indoors or during golden hour.The Blue Flare brings that early 1960s cinematic look to your phone. Inspired by JJ Abrams films, this lens gives you that brighter, sci-fi-looking flare when shooting into headlights, street, or directional lights.

Wondering what squeeze to go with? The 1.33x lens is an all-terrain aspect ratio that works great for photos or videos with less distortion at the edges. Shooting on 1.55x gives you the most dramatic letterbox image with slightly more softness at the margins for a truly cinematic feel that is perfect for video.

4. Fisheye 14mm Lens

The Ultra-Wide Perspective

Range: 14mm Focal Length

When To Use It: Tight scenes won’t be cut off, landscapes will appear larger than life, and cropped video will become a thing of the past. It's incredibly useful for taking selfies or vlogging, filming yourself doing sports, and a fun tool for filming vertical Instagram stories. Made for creatives who want to pack a lot into the frame—filmmakers, documentary-style photographers, athletes, architects, vloggers, and Instagram users. 

Overview: Our 14mm Fisheye T-Series Lens is the most expansive super-wide lens we've ever developed. Boasting an impressive 200-degree field of view, it produces images 30% wider than the typical 120-degree ultra-wide phone lenses. Termed a 'full frame fisheye,' this lens optimizes the entire image sensor of the newest camera phones. This ensures no dark edges or vignetting, resulting in a uniformly crisp image from corner to corner. One reason for its superior sharpness is its 20% larger aperture of bi-aspheric glass in our T-Series mount. Moreover, mounting over the phone's inherent wide lens allows more light intake and leverages the phone's high-resolution capabilities. Simply put, this lens offers the widest and sharpest imaging experience for mobile photography.

What a Filmmaker Thinks: "Aspheric glass, crisp edge to edge, this lens is amazing" - @beacasso

5. Macro 10x Lens

The Up Close and Personal

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: The 10x Macro T-series Lens captures life-sized images of the smallest objects. Different from traditional macro photography, this lens works less than an inch away from the subject to capture rich textures, materials, and living things that our phones were never before capable of seeing. The Moment T-Series 10x Macro Lens is made from crystal clear HD glass and has a 20% bigger aperture tuned to the latest generation of smartphone cameras. This means you can capture tiny detail in massive resolution with an intense and natural-looking depth of field.
