Moment Anamorphic 1.33x Adapter Kick Starter

We added Moment as an affiliate a while ago due to their approach to photographers and good experiences ordering from them in the past in addition to some of the unique Fujifilm swag they had. I say this because many are not fans of Kickstarter, but Moment has decided to release their latest product via Kickstarter and it is already fully funded so you have nothing to lose by ordering from this established company. I am personally still not a fan of products being launched via Kickstarter, but this is an interesting accessory that will add a lot of value to legacy glass if you have any.

Introducing Moment Anamorphic
We’re introducing our first (of many) big camera lenses. This new Moment 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter changes your current lenses, whether vintage or modern, into a classic anamorphic lens. The quality is unmatched, it’s easier to use than anything else on the market, and it’s compatible with more lenses.  This is the best lens we’ve ever made.

Classic Anamorphic Look
In designing this lens we wanted to deliver on those iconic anamorphic characteristics – horizontal flares, widescreen aspect ratio, subtle distortion, and gentle roll-off in sharpness.  This lens delivers on that and more as it adds its own character to sharp modern lenses allowing you to turn your current kit into an epic widescreen experience.

But the real fun starts when you pair this little wonder with vintage lenses. On vintage lenses, the adapter blends our take on classic anamorphic with the endless variations of looks that you get from vintage glass. Blending classic anamorphic with the character of vintage glass gives you unlimited options for creating epic and signature looks for your project.

What we love most is how much more cinematic your footage looks when shot on this lens. Ooooh, those flares.

A 1.33x Squeeze
The Moment Anamorphic Adapter is a 1.33x squeeze that transforms 16:9 video into a glorious widescreen 2:35:1. That’s a fancy way of saying that a 1.33x squeeze provided several advantages, enabling this adapter to work with the widest array of sensors and editing programs.

First, a 1.33x requires less cropping of your footage in post, enabling you to use all of the pixels you paid for! Second, a 1.33x enabled us to keep the design as compact as possible. Front anamorphic glass can get very large as the squeeze ratio increases. Lastly, most editing programs have a 1.33x anamorphic default setting, so it’s as easy as one click of a button to get an epic wide screen.

Super Easy To Use
Historically anamorphic adapters haven’t always been accessible or easy to use. Often they have been more trouble than they are worth. We wanted to change that with the Moment 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter.

  1. Attach one of the three premium step up rings included in the box.
  2. Screw the lens with ring onto your base lens.
  3. Press the button to align the lens vertically.

We wanted to make sure this adapter was as simple to use in your workflow as a native lens.

A Premium Design
We started working on this project several months ago, wanting to bring the history of classic anamorphics to everyday lenses. To bring both affordability and cinema-grade quality together into one product. While making the adapter as simple as shooting on a traditional lens.

Getting here has taken several iterations. It’s incredibly difficult to make large cylinder elements at an affordable price. Plus a lot of your time is spent trying to properly align an anamorphic in order to create consistent results. We’ve been designing optical products as a team for the last 8 years and this is by far the best lens we’ve ever made.

What It Works With
We wanted to make this adapter compatible with the widest array of base lenses. Whether you’re shooting on some vintage glass or a modern set of lenses, this adapter is for you.
