Moment has announced the launch of its new macro lens with 10x zoom at a 25mm focal distance, especially designed for mobile photography.
It has an equivalent focal length of 25mm which provides the best image quality ever achieved in a smartphone macro lens. It’s multiple element optical design uses high index glass materials and multi-layer antireflection coatings which are usually reserved for sophisticated digital imaging lenses. It provides corner to corner sharpness with virtually no distortion.
The lens also comes with a diffuser hood that sits over the lens to balance the light as needed. It works with the Moment Case, all of their existing mounting plates, and lens accessories.
“When we started on this new lens we felt that no one had quite done it justice. We were frustrated by poor image quality and usability, so we set out to make the best possible macro lens for mobile photography. We’re proud to say that the Moment macro achieves the sharpest image possible from corner to corner while virtually eliminating the pincushion distortion and lateral chromatic found on competing products.” said the company in a statement.
The company will start shipping the lens from August 2015.
