I’m not a Kickstarter recidivist, but when I saw the Moment lens proposal, I had to back this. I’m a Leica snob for sure, as is well documented on grown man style, but I also know that the best camera is the one you have with you, and the iPhone 5s is always with me.
I’m also a sucker for packaging and, more importantly, build quality. Both are exceptional, and Moment clearly delivered on the thoughtful bayonet mount—ode to Leica, and the packaging is ridiculously well-done.
I’m loving the images too. The tele and wide angle lenses are subtle, but make enough of a difference is worth the extra step of attaching a lens. The wide angle lens is an ~18mm equivalent, and the tele is a 60mm, about 2x the standard iPhone lens. Speaking of which, the thoughtful mount allows the Moment lenses to work on either a naked iPhone, or one in a case.
This story is a little meaningless without pictures, so I will be adding some shots from Pebble Beach Concours this weekend.
In the words of our friends at Moment, “Long Live the Picture Taker…”
