The Moondog Labs anamorphic adapter is the original smartphone anamorphic lens. It’s still one of the best, both optically and for its vintage look.
The Moondog Labs anamorphic adapter is my first high quality smartphone lens, and instantly became my favorite. In fact, I didn’t use any other smartphone lenses at all until January 2020 when I began to explore the range of Beastgrip lenses.
Up until recently it was the only 1.33X anamorphic lens in my kit and as such, is my go to lens for anamorphic 2.39:1 aspect ratio video. I now have the Beastgrip 1.55X anamorphic lens, and the Moment 1.33X anamorphic also, but the Moondog Labs will always be the one to compare the others to.
