The New Tele Lens is our same, award winning glass in a new metal body. Originally designed for iPhone 5, this telephoto lens has aged into an amazing portrait lens. Sharp in the center with natural drop-off on the edges, you can capture more intimate shots of people, nature, and travel scenes. It’s 60mm focal length will get you closer to the subject so you don’t have to rely on digital zoom. While its natural depth of field becomes even more dramatic when shooting on the newest devices.

The New Tele Lens attaches to your phone with our Photo Case or Battery Photo Case, on the latest iPhone, Google Pixel, or Galaxy devices.  


Portraits: The natural drop-off and 60mm focal length is ideal for shooting people. 
Dramatic Landscapes: Focus on the details with tightly cropped landscapes that blur edges.
Travel: Capture your new surroundings from afar without the pixelation of digital zoom.
Sports: Capture the action from the stands. No digital zoom needed.

Natural Depth Of Field

Vintage lenses are known for “their look,” and, over time, our Tele Lens has aged like a great vintage lens. Originally designed for iPhone 5, this lens has evolved to become sharp in the center and blurred on the edges. The end result is a more natural depth of field when shooting people, nature, or travel.


Easy To Attach

All of our New 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 either our non-electronic Photo Case or our Battery Photo Case. Align the line on the side of the lens, rotate the lens 90 degrees, and click it into place. You’re now ready to shoot.

05 Tele

Made From Aerospace Grade Metal

When you pick up a Moment Lens, you instantly feel the quality. This isn’t a cheap plastic lens. 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.

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 know they are shooting on Moment.

Moment on Pixel 2 / 2XL

The new Pixel 2 is amazing and we're blown away by the results of how Moment shoots on these new phones by Google. Especially in portrait mode, these new cameras are challenging us to rethink what you can shoot on a phone.

Wirecutter Winner

By Erin Lodi

Wirecutter is a well known publication that dives deep into reviewing whole categories of products. Better than reading Amazon reviews, they test dozens of different products until they determine their single recommended product. In their test of the best mobile photography lenses...Moment is the winner.

"For avid smartphone photographers concerned about high-quality, print-ready results, Moment lenses are worth the investment. The wide lens expands your iPhone’s field of view just enough to feel like a fresh perspective (about 0.63x magnification). The 2x telephoto lens extends your iPhone’s optical zoom a bit farther without degrading your image quality as digital zoom can, even if you have a dual-lens iPhone. Both lenses produce impressively clear images with little to no distortion across the entire frame." ~ Erin Lodi

People Love Moment

We believe in hand crafted quality that stands the test of time. Each lens is hand polished with multiple layers of glass and enclosed in machined aluminum. You feel the quality from the minute you pick up the lens.

Our Tele lens is one of our most versatile lenses. The Tele is perfect for shooting portraits because of its "depth of field" like rendering, ideal for those who don't have portrait mode or lens blur as an option on their phone. This lens is also a great addition to any landscape photographers kit allowing you to get even closer to your subject from a distance. If you have an iPhone 7 Plus, you can now mount your Tele lens over the dual lens using the Moment App and Photo or Battery Case for an even closer shot.
