Moment is easily one of my favourite brands out there. It's a statement that goes a long way from their innovation, sense of humor, content and more. They are actually giving us and building tools to improve our mobile photography. They do believe that the best camera is the one that you always carry with you. I am quite a believer in that notion. With their latest V2 gear, I was one of their backers from their Kickstarter campaign and I ordered the photo case for the Google Pixel. Combined Moment with what "used" to be the best camera out there, the results are just incredible. Let's dive into the review!
My gear for the review
Coming from the first generation of Moment, this is an immense upgrade. Huge! For starters, the industrial design for the cases has been changed from scratch. It's a totally new design. You get a refined slim design that still gives that everyday protection that you can attach with ease. Believe me, I have kids and they have dropped my phone many many times. Most importantly, it became even easier to attach a lens and boy it does feel solid in your pocket or backpack. It's a functional case where I feel this might the last case that you will ever need.
Caring for all the details
A little accessory that proves how Moment cares for their users and their brand. They have been producing what they called: Original Lens Adapter. What does it do? Well, it's an adapter for your V1 lenses on the new mounting system (V2). It's a small detail but it's giving support for those who choose to purchase the new photo case without buying any new lenses. One thing though, once you attach that lens adaptor to your V1 lenses, just safely know that you will hardly be able to take it off ever again.
New Wide Lens
With the current Google Pixel, we don't have the luxury of having a dual camera lenses if we compared to the iPhone 8 Plus for example. Even though I don't personally think it's necessary to own a Tele lens. I am sure it's great but I am having this feedback based on the everyday use. Where I would put my investment on is the V2 Wide Lens, without a doubt. First of all, it's a new design from its predecessor, I would say that is almost twice bigger and it's awesome. Having this lens mounted on your case, you will never want to take it off. It feels strong, well-fitted and doesn't bother much on the balance when you are holding it. The result? The "5 layer aspherical optics" actually makes your pictures vibrant and giving you a stunning wide perspective.
V2 Wide Lens in the Wild
Moment V2 is totally worth your investment! They are building the best of the best for us makers to keep on making and elevate our photography game. My ace to Moment for keeping us wanting for more and being part of our everyday carry. One tiny tip to end this review, take a look at their wide range of accessories including the useful Lens Pen.
