All smartphones come with amazing lenses. At present, most of these lenses are manufactured by Moment. However, these lenses require a particular type of case which is specialized. So far, Moment was manufacturing these cases only for a few Android models. However, according to the latest price of information, Moment has manufactured a universal mount, which can accommodate the lenses of any Android phone.
Before building this universal mount, Moment created cases only for a few Android models, namely Google’s Pixel lineup, the OnePlus 6, 6T, and 7 Pro. A few other Android smartphones like Samsung’s Galaxy S8, S9, S10, S20, Note 8, Note 9, and Note 10 also had specific Moment cases to support their lenses. However, this list is pretty small when compared to the exhaustive list of Android smartphones that are available in the market at present. However, with this universal mount, it seems like the Moment has come up with a brilliant solution.
The Moment M-series lens mount is a brand new creation by the firm. It is priced at $29.99 and is universally compatible with any smartphone or tablet. Moment plans on releasing the product part by part for iPads. However, at present, it is a perfect fit for Android smartphones.
By means of a press release, Moment stated that the lens mount would go with OnePlus 7T, LG V40, G7, Pocophone F1, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and others. The lens mount also goes pretty well with Amazon’s Fire Phone, which renders the above list useless.
Practically, Moment’s latest universal lens mount should work with any device, that is, any smartphone or tablet. The only condition over here is that the phone can have a maximum thickness of 10.75mm. This measurement comes by checking the distance between the camera surface and the screen surface. The center of the camera sensor should be at a distance less than 39mm when measured from the edge of the device. It is due to the fact that the sliding plate can access the camera to a maximum range of 39mm only.
The lens mount can also be used with a few phone cases that have a camera bump. Also, they should not protrude beyond the phone screen.
Lens mount is designed in such a way that it is perfectly aligned with a rear camera of the phone. However, the clip might need a few adjustments here and there to perfectly fit the phone into it. If the alignment is not proper, then there is a possibility that the image might be distorted at the edges.
The clip can also be used to adjust lenses in different ways. For instance, the clip can be adjusted to position the lens on the front-facing selfie camera. It could offer a lovely combination with the wide-angle or fisheye lenses. The clip can also be slid into tablets, and it can also be positioned on the webcam of a laptop.
Presently, the Moment M-series Lens Mount can be pre-ordered for $29.99. Its shipping is expected to start sometime around the end of March. Customers who purchase any lens from the Moment store with the promo code ‘free mount’ are liable to get the entire setup free of cost, although this offer would be prevalent only for a limited period.
