This Is Cool Stuff

So, you think the camera in your smartphone is top of the line?  Think again.  This technology may not be in a smartphone yet, but it will be soon...

The L16 part of the name has to do with the 16 different lenses that this start-up company has packed into the camera. Each of these lenses captures a picture using different focal lengths, the data from which is then combined to form one detailed 52-megapixel image. Five of the sensors come with the equivalent focal length of a 35mm, five at 70mm and the remaining six are 150 mm. Even more impressive is the fact that this additional image data allows for photographers to adjust a picture’s depth of field, focus and exposure even after it has been taken. The Light L16 comes with a selection of other features too. The range of camera focal lengths allows for a high-quality zoom, rather than a basic digital zoom. The L16 also comes with WiFi built in, which allows photographers to share their images straight from the camera or quickly transfer them over the air to a PC. It can also be used to shoot 4K video and runs an Android operating system. Best of all, this technology all fits into a device that is only marginally bulkier than a Nexus 6 smartphone.
