Finally the Light L16 is finally available for reservation from today. It has 16 lenses, multiple apertures and DSLR-like quality that no other cameras in the market have. It is targeted to arrive in late Summer 2016 in the US at a special price of USD1,699 (currently, if you reserve it at launch month, you get another USD400 discount).
Some may ask why this smartphone-looking camera is so expensive. The answer is that it is totally a revolutionary new product class and there is no others in the market to compare the price. With its multiple lenses and aperture, it is able to combine the pictures into a beautiful and high quality one (52 MPX) easily.
When a snap a picture, it actually fires 10 cameras (each with a fixed focal length) and cleverly combines them in a final picture. You can also have the option to change the focus even after you complete the shoot too. With this Light L16 camera, it is like having 3 prime lenses and a zoom lens from 35mm to 150mm in your pocket. Check out the introduction video.
Do you think this will change the way we take pictures? I will need to see the final results to be convinced.
