Light 16 camera multi-sensor sample images
Sample images are now up for the Light L16 camera
How many sensors? …
First announced in 2015, the Light L16 camera features sixteen 13MP camera modules.
The camera looked a nifty idea at the time of its announcement, and all the early adopters have bought out the first production run.
The details of some of the sample images still show a few glitches, but it’s an interesting idea, even if it’s not going to replace my 5Ds any time soon ;-)
At last, a ‘phone camera’ I’d be happy using – yes I know it’s not a phone, I rarely carry one with me anyway. It was just pointed out by Karen though, that I’m still using the iPhone 3Gs I won in a competition several years ago (2009), so my appreciation of camera phone technology is not so current…
