iPhone 11 + Moondog Labs

iPhone 11 Pro

 

On Tuesday September 10th, Apple announced their latest iPhone update.  If you're looking to upgrade, what does the new iPhone 11 mean for you and your MDL labs gear?  

First, let's review the new (rear) camera specs:

iPhone 11

Ultra-wide: 13mm equivalent focal length, F/2.4, 12MP

Wide: 26mm equivalent focal length, F/1.8, 12MP

 

iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max 

Ultra-wide: 13mm equivalent focal length, F/2.4, 12MP

Wide: 26mm equivalent focal length, F/1.8, 12MP

Tele: 52mm equivalent focal length, F/2.0, 12MP

 

Until we have the devices in house, we can only make educated guesses as to exactly how our lenses will work with the new cameras.  But, based on the specs available and what we know from previous iPhone models, we believe that our anamorphics will work well with both the wide and tele cameras.  Unfortunately, the ultra-wide cameras are just too wide to be supported by our lens.

We plan to run a full suite of tests once we have the phones in-house (likely October).  We’re also working with our case manufacturer (RhinoShield) to determine if it’s practical to introduce a case + mount for the new phones that supports an attachment for the wide and tele, but at the same time doesn’t interfere with the ultra-wide camera’s field of view.  In the meantime, our 37mm threaded version paired with a rig is likely a great option for those who can’t wait to shoot anamorphically. 

We'll release more information as we begin testing.
