Light L16 Camera

The saying goes… the best camera is the one you have with you. It is true. And while I wish I could/would carry my DSLR camera with me at all times it just isn’t practical. So, a full 95-percent of my photos are shot with my Apple iPhone. Well things are about to change in a big way. The Light L16 Camera ($1,699, minus $400 if you order this month) has 16 individual cameras and is the world’s first multi-aperture computational camera. What the heck does that mean? It means that you get the control of a DSLR in a form factor not much bigger than a smartphone. The camera can go as high as 52-megapixels, has a large touchscreen, onboard editing, and built-in Wi-Fi.


Still not impressed? Watch the video after the break. But really, this tiny camera allows for some impressive tricks like incredible depth of field that allows post-photo light, focus, and depth adjustments all the way to f/1.2! True optical zoom for the close-up photos, 35-150mm. Low light isn’t a problem with Light’s imaging engine that makes up for poor lighting conditions. Apple, hurry up and buy these guys and put it in my iPhone!

    Too bad they’re not shipping until late summer 2016 according to their website. Who knows what comes along almost 12 months from now.
