MomentHas announced a new product for large-format cameras, best known for its lineup of mobile accessories. Today, Moment has announced its new 1.33x anamorphic lens adapter, which effectively converts any compatible lens into an anamorphic lens.
The adapter, which Moment says it has been operating for the past eight years, is made up of six components in four groups. 1.33x Squeeze 16: 9 converts video to standard 2: 35: 1 widescreen ratio when unscrewed. Why Moment chose 1.33x states that ‘the post requires less cropping of your footage, enables you to use all the pixels you pay for’ and ‘helps keep the design as compact as possible.’
The 1.33x anamorphic lens adapter should work well with most 35-100mm prime lenses on Super 35 rigs and most 50-100mm prime lenses on full-frame rigs. Below is a graphic detailing the range of focal lengths across both prime and zoom lenses in different camera systems:
The back of the lens has a 67mm filter thread. If that doesn’t work for the lens you’re using, it includes three adapter rings (72mm, 77mm and 82mm) to hold the moment in lenses with larger front lens diameters. To ensure that the adapter is located correctly on the lens you are attaching, Moment has added a pair of white marks that line up when you rotate it to the correct position. Below is a complete ‘how it works’ video from the moment:
The 1.33x anamorphic lens adapter is currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, where Moment has successfully financed various products in the past. It went live for just a few hours and has already surpassed its লক্ষ্য 50,000 funding target with 117 supporters and 29 days left. An ‘Early Bird Special’ will get you the adapter for $ 999, with the adapter finally getting a $ 300 discount for retail. You can learn more and make your commitment by heading Kickstarter campaign.
