Moment launches new ultra-wide Fisheye 14mm Lens with ‘bi-aspherical’ lens design

Smartphone lens manufacturer Moment has announced its new Fisheye 14mm Lens, an add-on lens that Moment claims ‘is the widest, crispiest shot you can have on a phone.’

The lens features an all-new optical design made specifically for the latest smartphones from Apple, Google, OnePlus and Samsung. It features a bi-aspheric design that Moment claims uses 15-percent more of the image sensor than its existing Fisheye 15mm lens.

This design results in a 170-degree field of view that’s 30% wider than the 120-degree field-of-view found on most ultra-wide-angle lenses in newer smartphones, such as the iPhone 11 Pro.

The resulting image can be de-warped using a new distortion correction filter in Moment’s Pro Camera app (Android, iOS). The de-warping feature is available in the iOS app today and the feature will make its way to the Android app ‘in the next few weeks.’

Below is a sample video captured with the new Fisheye 14mm lens:

The Moment Fisheye 14mm lens costs just $89.99 for the first 48 hours, after which it will jump up to $119.99. It will work with Moment’s line of M-series cases, which include options for a handful of iPhone, Pixel, OnePlus and Galaxy devices. You can order yours now and find out more information on Moment’s website.
