Currently, there are some great compact cameras on the market, but a new product, released by a unknown (until now) start-up, managed to receive a lot of attention and positive feedback. We’re talking about the Light L16, a device with 16 lenses, 10 of them being able to shoot at multiple focal lengths at the same time and produce an image as big as 52 megapixels.
A great start for a startup!
The camera is the first product of Startup Light, a company based in Palo Alto, California, currently targeting the high-end photography market. According to Fox News, the Light L16 is able to condense the same zoom and picture quality as several interchangeable analog lenses for DSLRs, into a device fitting in your pocket.
The company’s CEO, Dave Grannan, claims that their product is able to zoom from 35 mm to 150 mm, while the software can be used for adjusting shots depth of field or other various functions. Sounds very promising, if you ask us!
As for the rest of the features, it has red-eye correction, Wi-Fi, a LED flash and integration with social media networks, so you can post your photos directly from the Light L16 camera. Also, it’s compatible with a wide range of Wi-Fi printers.
Say goodbye to blurry or out of focus images
Of course, the main question is: why 16 lenses? Apparently, Light L16 is able to solve blurry or out of focus photos. Besides this, it’s way easy to carry, compared to heavy DSLR cameras and all the additional lenses.
If you’re fancying the idea behind the camera, you can currently pre-order it from Light’s website, for $1299 or wait until 2016, when it’s going to be available for $1699.
