The Original Wide Lens is an everyday, go-to lens for avid photographers and filmmakers. It’s 18mm design allows your phone capture almost twice the normal picture, perfect for big landscapes, tight interiors, or yummy plates of food. Its advanced optical design allows the lens to take in more image without bending it. The results are beautiful, crisp images, with straight lines and no fisheye distortion.

The Original Wide lens works works with or without a case, on iPhones or dozens of Android devices. Use our low-profile mounting plate that adheres to the phone, disappearing comfortably under any standard case.

If you have an iPhone 6/6S or 6/6S+, you can also use the Moment Case (built-in lens mount) instead of the mounting plate to attach a lens. Now your phone will always be lens ready.

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.

"After more than 16 hours of research during which we considered 70 lens attachments and tested 15 models (with hands-on shooting that included a hiking trip through the Cascade Mountains and sightseeing on a Grand Canyon road trip), we found that Moment’s Tele and Wide mobile-photography lenses are the best for avid smartphone photographers. They offer image quality as good as that of anything we tested, along with a straightforward attachment system that doesn’t lock you into using a case you don’t like (unlike most of the competition)." ~ Erin Lodei
