It’s an era for smartphone filmmaking, and we have all the tools we need. Even that iconic film look with characteristic lens flares and super-wide aspect ratios can be achieved with your phone. Earlier this year, Moment introduced an anamorphic lens for smartphones, and the other mobile phone optics giant SANDMARC is only a step behind with its own anamorphic lens.
The multi-coated 1.33x anamorphic lens provides 2.4:1 or panoramic 16:9 ratios. The lens comes with a cap, pouch, phone case (specific for iPhone XS Max, XS, XR, X, 7, 8, 7 Plus, and 8 Plus), and a clip-on mount that you can use for any other type of phone or even on your front-facing camera, which is a great plus that isn’t offered by Moment.
