If you purchase a new Pixel Case and a Lens too, then you’ll be able to pick up lens pen and lens case or holster for free – just add this code in your checkout to get those – TEAMPIXEL30.
Well, some people do mean things, unfortunately we have had experience of that just recently but this time a particularly bad thing has happened to Moment, the high end mobile photography lens manufacturer. Someone stole their $13,000 prototype lens – more than a little mean spirited…

Moment openly admit that they were ‘more than a little bit worried’ that there lenses would not work with the new Apple iPhone 7. Following testing they have now confirmed that their lenses do, at least ‘tentatively’ work, which is great news as Apple have changed the sensor, lens and aperture combinations in the iPhone 7. Moment still have additional testing to do with their lenses and the iPhone 7 though, they need to validate image quality and work out how to modify their exisiting mounting plate design to work with the iPhone 7.
They have not tested their lenses with the iPhone 7 Plus yet, so we will update you with that news as soon as we hear but good news so far.
Moment lenses have been increasing in popularlity for a number of years, mainly due to the sheer quality of the glass. Usually, it’s very difficult to obtain a discount/deal on their products but right now and until 2 December 2015, they are offering a 20% discount on all their shop contents.
Moment are becoming a very popular lens manufacturer for mobile photography. Last year they released two mobile lenses, an 18 mm wide-angle and also a 70 mm telephoto. At the beginning of this year Moment started production of their new ‘Moment Case’ for the iPhone 6. It includes lens mount, shutter button and ‘smart’ camera strap and is available to order here.
The latest news from the Moment camp is a brand new Macro lens. It features a 10x magnification at a 25 mm focal distance. It also comes complete with a custom diffuser hood, to reduce shadows and maximise ambient light.
The new Macro lens from Moment will be available in August 2015 and will retail for the same price as the other lenses in the range $99.99/£79.99. Click here to find out more.
