About Moondog Labs
We believe that all filmmakers and photographers deserve professional-grade creative imaging options, regardless of the camera platform that they use… and that they should have the flexibility to use their gear however they want. Our growing catalog of pioneering products includes revolutionary anamorphic lenses, state-of-the-art filters and mounts, and sleek counterweights, all of which are specifically designed for the mobile community.
Our team, including founders Scott Cahall and Julie Gerstenberger, has nearly 200 years of combined experience in optical design and engineering for photography, motion capture, projection, and display. Grounded in the aesthetic of film, our experience includes development of some of the earliest digital and mobile phone cameras. Our team currently holds 77 patents, many in mobile imaging. Prior to Moondog Labs, team members fueled progress and innovation at Eastman Kodak, Corning Precision Lens, Leica, and Jenoptik. We have harnessed this expertise to develop a modular, cinema-quality mobile filmmaking and photography system for those with a passion for technical quality and artistry.

Moondog Labs continues to work on cutting-edge products with the quality that professionals expect from high-end camera platforms. We are proud to be based in Rochester, New York, the home of innovation in optics, photography, and filmmaking since the 1800s. Our co-founder Julie Gerstenberger was recently a featured guest on WXXI's Connections with Evan Dawson discussing the history and future of optics technology and research in the Rochester area.
We are located along the beautiful Erie Canal at 30 Liftbridge Lane East Suite 210; Fairport, NY 14450.
