What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

What is this campaign? 

Hi, we are Moment.

We started on Kickstarter by making lenses for phones… but now we do more than that. We make gear, develop apps, and guide trips that help people to get out and follow their lens.

We’re back with our fourth campaign. We love to shoot video and we’ve always wanted gear that makes our phones as good as our big cameras. Today we have that...introducing the Moment Filmmaker Collection.

It’s not just one but four new products. Available exclusively on Kickstarter, back the project and save 20%.

You in?

What people are saying: 


Steven Soderbergh’s “Unsane” was shot on Moment and is currently in theatres. See how it was shot.


How to back the campaign:

1. Select your reward level.

2. Calculate your Add-Ons.

3. Click “Back This Project” where you'll select your reward and enter your add-on dollars.

Please note, with add-ons you will select these products after the campaign is over. For now, just add the “add-on dollars” that represent what you will select after the campaign. Don’t worry if you get this wrong we can help you after the campaign.

What we're making:

Introducing our Filmmaker Collection - gear to shoot cinematic video on your phone. We’re introducing four new products.

Anamorphic Lens

Our anamorphic lens is the sexiest product we’ve ever made. This is the holy grail of filmmaking. Sweet horizontal flares and that widescreen, letterboxed look. Typically super expensive, we made anamorphic affordable. Now you can shoot like the pros, on your phone.

The 1.33x anamorphic lens brings the organic look and character of 2:40:1 Cinemascope to Moment’s mobile platform. In other words, it’s like shooting a wider focal length in the horizontal direction and a longer focal length in the vertical. You can now capture a super wide-angle image with the inherent shallow depth of field and perspective of a telephoto lens.

Anamorphic Lens Specifications 

  • Magnification : 1.33x Horizontal Squeeze 
  • Aspect Ratio (video) after de-squeeze: 2.40:1 Cinemascope
  • Lateral Color: Minimized
  • Distortion: Yes please
  • Flare: Vintage style anti-reflection coatings create desirable horizontal flares
  • Orientation: Unidirectional — Mount can be rotated 90 degrees depending on mobile device

Battery Photo Case

Our new, wireless-enabled battery photo case does two things that make it easier to shoot video on your phone. The shutter button lets you start and stop filming without having to touch the screen. And our 3,100 mAH battery lets you shoot twice as much video without recharging. Film freely!

Battery Case Specs:157.97mm L x 77.28mm W x 18mm H

 Gimbal Counterweight

To get butter smooth video on your phone, you need a gimbal. Our universal counterweight makes your Osmo2 better. Its adjustable design enables you to perfectly counterbalance and calibrate your case and lens setup. Get ready for ultra flowy shots and smooth cinema videos.

 Filter Mount

Great filmmakers know the power of camera filters help you create effects and control light in ways digital editing can’t. The Moment Filter Mount lets you attach a standard 62mm filter to any of your Moment Lenses. Simply press fit the mount onto your lens and you’re ready to go.

Add Ons

Please note, with add-ons you will select these products after the campaign is over. For now, just add the “add-on dollars” that represent what you will select after the campaign. Don’t worry if you get this wrong we can help you after the campaign.

Additionally, if you add a Battery Photo Case as an add-on to a non-Battery Case backer level, please note that your shipping costs will likely be higher during the kickstarter survey as anything with a battery is classified as "dangerous goods" and is significantly more expensive to ship.


When does it ship?

In the next few months. Manufacturing is always full of “you won’t believe this happened” types of stories, but this being our fourth campaign we feel confident about our ability to deliver on time. We are getting faster and faster at shipping new products and we promise to keep you in the loop along the way.

Who we are:

We are Moment - a collection of photographers, videographers, designers, and engineers who believe the world is a better place when you get lost and follow your lens.

We started on Kickstarter by making lenses for phones… but now we do more than that. We make gear, develop apps, and guide trips that help people to get out and follow their lens.

Without your support, we wouldn’t exist, so thank you!

Special Thanks

We would love to thank our family, friends, and everyone who has helped throughout the journey. Your feedback, support, and positive encouragement have been incredibly inspiring.

Special thanks to Peter Mckinnon, Matti Haapoja, Ash Tailor, JR Alli, Chris Hau, Lizzie Peirce, Jon Simo, and Jesse Driftwood.

Risks and challenges

Producing a hardware product is never easy.

Our previous experience in manufacturing lenses, cases, waterproof action cameras, and wearables makes us better prepared for the unforeseen challenges we may encounter during the tooling, manufacturing, testing, and certification processes. We have already manufactured over 30 products at Moment with our same suppliers. This means we already have pre-established relationships to ensure consistent quality and testing processes.

Despite the familiarity with our supply partners, there is still risk in successfully tooling, assembling, and producing these products. In addition to the challenges that present themselves with manufacturing, the Battery Photo Case also requires external certifications for the battery, electronics performance, and MFI compliance. Failure could result in significant delays in troubleshooting, redesigning, and retesting.

Our target shipping dates are by the end of June depending on which level you back. We would love to ship earlier and we will do everything we can to make this happen.

Keep in mind we will also trade quality for schedule as we are committed to making the best products we possibly can for mobile photography.
