A decent DSLR camera is huge; though it takes breathtaking photos, it’s not very convenient to carry a large camera all the time. Light, an innovative company, has introduced L16 camera. The technology to capture a photo is slightly different in an L16 camera.
As mentioned at Light’s website,
“Traditional DSLR cameras create photos by detecting light passed through a single large aperture and bulky lens barrel. The L16 is different. The L16 captures light through many small apertures and uses folded optics technology to bounce light off angled periscopic reflex mirrors and through slim, horizontally positioned lens barrels before reaching an optical sensor. The result is a camera capable of taking DSLR quality photos that can fit in the palm of your hand.”
It has 16 camera modules (16 individual 13 MP sensors) on its front surface, and its dimension is only 6.5 inches. After capturing images through these lenses, the camera combines all of them into a single photo. The produced single image is an astounding 52+ megapixel photo!
