Say hello to the Light L16. The world’s most interesting camera. The DSLR rival with unmatched quality and without a bag full of lenses. This camera of the future has it all. Captures the details of your scene at multiple focal lengths, then uses sophisticated algorithms to combine 10+ images into a single, high-resolution photo.
Light’s advanced image-processing engine captures 52 megapixels of rich data, creating high-quality images with striking details, realistic colors, and significantly less noise. Photographers have the creative freedom they need to zoom, crop, enlarge, and ultimately bring their vision to life. Weighing just less than a pound, the L16 offers convenience without sacrificing quality. Now, photographers can take professional-quality photos wherever they go.
The L16 Camera is about the size of a large smartphone and with sixteen individual 13MP cameras on its body, ten of which fire simultaneously, it is able to capture high-resolution images up to 52 megapixels. According to the folks at Light, a start-up company, The Light L16 Camera is the first multi-aperture computational camera. The L16 makes it easy for anyone to take DSLR-quality images, and is small and light enough to fit in your pocket. Light’s technology combines folded optics with sophisticated computational imaging algorithms to deliver the highest quality images from the smallest possible device.
The camera features sixteen lenses and one IR sensor in a seemingly random array that looks like bubbles floating across its front face. The lenses are grouped into three focal lengths: five 35mm lenses, five 70mm lenses and six 150mm lenses. This offers an effective optical zoom range of 35-150mm. When shooting at one of the three focal lengths, the camera takes several images and computationally blends them into one high resolution image.
The camera’s computation algorithm also provides effective low-light imaging with minimal noise and, most importantly, enables focus and depth of field to be adjusted after the picture has been taken. Physically, the camera has a compact and Spartan design with a healthy hand grip and a 5” touchscreen LCD for composition and playback (no viewfinder) as well as settings navigation. It is water and dust-resistant, has a built-in flash, and a rechargeable battery good for 400 shots. Its top plate offers just the power and shutter buttons.
The L16 is the world’s first multi-aperture computational camera. Utilizing a folded optics design, it simultaneously captures up to 10 images with 16 separate cameras at 3 focal lengths and then combines them using its computational algorithm to produce a 52MP image. This allows users to adjust depth of field, focus, and exposure after the images has been captured. Furthermore, thanks to the 16 cameras that range in focal lengths between 35mm to 150mm, the L16 will choose a subset of those cameras to capture images based on the field of view the users sets themselves.

You might think it's 2022 and everyone using cellphone camera to take pictures/videos right? Why do i need this right? Nope, that's not the bubble i am living in. I have my smart phone for different purposes. Taking videos/pictures aren't in it. The quality is amazing though. I do a lot of YT videos and bunch of reviews on social media so i need something fast, reliable, and of course with highest quality pictures/videos. This camera has so much potential and i am just started to learn how to use it. It has so many features that i didn't know about. The world of DSLR is large and I am just at the tip of the iceberg. So much more to learn and feeling grateful to have this with me all the times. It's small and portable and has that awesome grip. Really cool !!!
This camera is a must have for beginners or professional photographers. It takes pictures that are clear and show every detail. This is rechargeable and lasts through my shoots. It has a ton of cameras on the front side that you see as soon as it comes out of the box. It's durable and will withstand a drop but try not to make a habit of it as everything has its limits and will break if pushed far enough. It's a must have for beautiful photo quality worthy photos
This is a very high tech camera with extensive capabilities. I’m just learning all the features but what I’ve discovered so far is super. I love the large screen viewfinder - it shows the picture nice and clear and you can quickly manipulate the exposure directly from there. You can also extensively edit within the screen manipulating and isolating particular images. It is wifi capable or you can connect for downloading in the traditional manner. It is certainly a conversation piece with all the lenses and they do their job capturing crisp clean images. It charges quickly and lasts a good amount to time during activity. I do recommend you charge after several days of inactivity. Perfect for photography buffs - I’m still learning all its capabilities and enjoying discovery at all it does.
I am a retired, professional photographer who used to shoot with two Canon 5D Mark IV DSLRs. Ever since my son was born, I had hung up the cameras in order to focus on raising him -- then two children followed for a total of three. I have rarely reached out to the Canon 5D's now to take photos because they are so bulky and inconvenient to carry around. Smartphones have come a long way and produce excellent images, especially when enhanced by the phone's artificial intelligence/processing algorithm. And so I find myself taking photos and videos mostly from the phones purely out of convenience for the moment unfolding right in front of my eyes. As well as smartphones -- like my Samsung Galaxy S21+ -- take photos, they are only really good when viewed on the camera or screen and when printed in small sizes for those of you who still do prints (we occasionally do.) One thing that most smartphones have in common is their lack of optical zooms. Nokia came out with some great phones when they were under Microsoft's ownership long ago. Alas, it did not sell well. This Light-branded camera caught my eye (no pun intended) with its multiples of lenses. There are 16 of them -- SIXTEEN! What would you do with so many lenses, you may ask? From zooming in or out, creating beautifully rich, blurred backgrounds or what not, each one serves a different purpose for the scene or artistic vision before you. The photographer gets to choose the focal length, aperture, and shutter speed, of course, mirroring very much a digital SLR's capabilities. The lenses are equivalent to 35mm, 70mm, and 150mm. The human eye sees at about 50mm. Camera is compact and fits in the back of my pants pocket, charges via USB-C (cable and USB 3.0 AC adapter included), and the 5x optical zoom helps ensure the zoomed images look much sharper than if done through my Samsung phone (whose optical zoom maxes out at 2x.) How do the images compare to my Canon 5D Mark IV. Well, comparing a $400 camera is not really fair to a $2,700 DSLR (which does not include the cost of the various, equivalent lenses that this Light one comes with). With that said, the photos came out pretty decent in well-lit environments with slightly cold color reproduction, good sharpness and background blur (bokeh), and dynamic range (capturing dark and light scenes pretty well with little banding). HDR images came out surprisingly good. In dark environments, the Canon is no match -- Light's images produced some banding and introduced quite a bit of noise as you cranked up the ISO level. You can see some artificial image processing in the final photos where it had attempted to denoise. Still, they came out better than my Samsung Galaxy S21+ phone's. Images can be viewed from the built-in 5" touchscreen, but like other, non-SLR cameras, there is no optical viewfinder to take photos through. You rely on the touchscreen to frame and photograph your subjects. The built-in flash is tiny and laughable, as expected, for a camera of this size. There is no connection option for an external flash. Neither do smartphones. I did not test the 4K video capability. WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth are built in for geotagging images and downloading them to the smartphone or computer. Memory is built-in with a generous 256GB. It cannot be expanded nor is it removable. What this means is that if the camera dies, the repair person or someone digging through your trash could potentially get a hold of your photos. So, be sure to destroy the camera if you want to get rid of your photos when it no longer works.
