MOMENT FILMMAKER COLLECTION Next-gen movie-making has arrived exclusively for your smartphone. Have you seen Unsane? Director Steven Soderbergh shot the film on an iPhone 7 Plus, teaming it with a sweet piece of mobile film-making gear from Moment, the company that’s introduced a game-changing mobile cinematography system called the Moment Filmmaker Collection. With that kind of Hollywood endorsement, no wonder Moment’s recent Kickstarter campaign was funded in just 41 minutes. Touted as “the future of mobile filmmaking”, Moment’s innovative mobile cinematography kit comprises four products for iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel: an anamorphic lens ($149/£105.61), a wireless charging battery phone case ($99/£70.17), lens filter adapter ($39/£27.64) and gimbal counterweight 2.0 ($39/£27.64). The anamorphic lens is the real star here, adding sweet flares and the signature wide-angle cinematic look to phones…

MATT BOLTON Editor After writing our Ultimate Tech Wishlist feature (p36), Matt tried applying the same three-tier system elsewhere, but it turns out to be more confusing than helpful when applied to bananas. MICHELLE MCLAREN Art Editor Michelle ran the London Marathon at the end of this issue, so she spent a lot of time checking out the running sensors (p96) and Fitbit Ionic (p97). And questioning her life decisions. PAUL DOUGLAS Global Editor-in-Chief, T3.com For the summer, Paul’s been looking into our guide to ebikes (p76) for his commute. Though he did also say, “Why wouldn’t I just get a Ducati?” So, swings and roundabouts. ROB JONES Tech & Gaming Editor, T3.com Rob spent most of the last month in Japan but refused our many, many requests to bring back the advanced home service droids we’re certain they have there.

Here at T3, we like to celebrate the best of the best when it comes to tech, and that tends to mean products with all the fanciest features and elaborate extras. But the top-tier products can be a big investment, and in some cases you don’t always need to go high-end. You want an amazing TV for the living room, sure, but maybe your bedroom telly doesn’t need to be quite as fancy. The idea of our Ultimate Tech Wishlist is to give you that buying flexibility. We choose a range of great gadget upgrades, then reveal the very best buys, no matter whether you want to keep the budget low, are happy to spend on the sweet spot middle ground, or want only the best money can buy.

1 SONY XPERIA XZ2 PREMIUM • £TBC, sonymobile.com Smartphone photography is reaching new heights, and Sony has just taken the entire movement stratospheric by jamming tech from its compact system cameras into the Xperia XZ2 Premium. You no longer have to live in fear of cruddy images and video when shooting in low-level lighting – Sony reckons the sensor setup here is so damn good you’ll be capturing things the naked eye can’t see. The XZ2 Premium’s dual-camera Motion Eye drafts in 19MP colour and 12MP monochrome sensors. If you take snaps in darker situations, ISO 51,200 sensitivity for stills and ISO 12,800 for HDR 4K video will produce eye-popping results. There’s also a Bokeh portrait mode. In addition to a silky 5.8-inch 4K display, tech borrowed from Sony’s Bravia TVs gives your content…
