Billed as the future of filmmaking, the Moment Filmmaker Collection has some impressive credentials given that it was recently used by acclaimed movie director, Steven Sodenburgh, on his most recent release, Unsane, which was filmed entirely on an iPhone 7. Needless to say, it’s old news that the quality of cameras on smartphones today are impressive to say the least and the Moment Anamorphic Phone Lens harnesses their power still further.
The Moment Filmmaker Collection is funding on Kickstarter right now and lets you shoot incredible cinematic video on your iPhone, Galaxy, or Pixel device. This means that you can now make your small camera as good as your big camera and, as admirably illustrated by Sodenburgh, your smartphone has the video capabilities to create a Hollywood standard film. There’s an awful lot to this new release from Moment and it all combines to make it the ultimate in mobile movie making.
Bigger and Better
This is the fourth campaign from the team at Moment and it might well be their most ambitious to date. This first class collection of accessories for your smartphone are going to significantly enhance your movie making skills and its not just one but four new products that make up this collection. These four products are an anamorphic lens, a Moment battery case, a filter mount and a gimbal counterweight 2.0 – all of which combine to make the ultimate in filmmaking packages.
The Moment Filmmaker Collection was fully funded on Kickstarter in under an hour and this really is indicative of the eager market of amateur filmmakers looking to capitalise on its excellent features and performance. The Filmmaker Collection from Moment has the anamorphic lens as its cornerstone product of the range and this is billed as the holy grail of filmmaking as it delivers eye-catching horizontal flares and that widescreen, letterboxed look essential for the movies. Ordinarily very expensive, Moment have made anamorphic affordable. This means you can now shoot like the pros, on the phone in the palm of your hand.
With the anamorphic lens being joined by Moment’s battery photo case, which is a new, wireless-enabled battery photo case which does two things that make it more straightforward to shoot excellent videos on your phone. Firstly, the shutter button lets you start and stop filming without having to touch the screen and secondly, Moment’s 3,100 mAH battery ensures you shoot twice as much footage without the need to recharge your phone.
Smooth, slick visuals are something you’ll associate with all movies and that’s something that can be achieved with the Moment Filmmaker Collection courtesy of the gimbal counterweight offering. This clever bit of kit lets you get butter smooth video on your phone and has an adjustable design which allows you to perfectly counterbalance and calibrate your case and lens setup to ensure you capture amazing, smooth footage each and every time.
Last but not least with the Filmmaker Collection from Moment is the Filter Mount which lets you create effects and control light in ways digital editing simply doesn’t allow for. The Moment Filter Mount means you can attach a standard 62mm filter to any of your Moment Lenses to create a whole new look to your video footage. Simply press fit the mount onto your lens and you’re ready to start filming. If you’ve been wanting to tap into the filmmaking potential of your smartphone, this is the Kickstarter campaign for you.
