Moondog Labs Brings An Anamorphic Adapter To iPhone
by Joey Pedras (@joeypedras)
A mobile filmmaker’s dream gadget. This device lets your achieve that iconic, cinematic 2:4:1 aspect ratio for your iPhone videos. For low-budget, indie filmmakers like myself this device is exactly what we’ve been waiting for.
Launched as a Kickstarter campaign, the Moondog device gained popularity very quickly, and reached its goal in no time at all. Even catching the eye of filmmaker Sean Baker, who used the device to shoot his short film “Tangerine”. Which received fantastic review at the Sundance Film Festival. Goes to show that if you have a good story to tell, and decent gear you can make some fantastic stuff.
The device is currently only available for the iPhone 5, and up. You can order one now on the Moondog Labs website. An iPhone 5/5s adapter costs $160 which seems a little steep, but for what it’s worth, a full anamorphic adapter could cost you a ton more than that.
