Check out the final design of the Light L16 52MP 16-lens camera

The Silicon Valley-based company, Light, was able to produce a camera that takes photography to the next level. The Light L16 52-megapixel camera is able to capture the DSLR-like quality of images using its 16 lenses.

The Silicon Valley-based company, Light, created an insane 16-lens camera, dubbed as the Light L16, and plans to start shipping it on July 14. Back in July last year, the company was remembered raising 30 million dollars to develop this new innovation and bring photography to the next level. Indeed, the L16 camera is a device to watch for. In fact, Light said that the L16 camera, with a price tag of about USD 1700, received an overwhelming demand based on the announcement alone and that they are still on the verge of making a new set for the rest of all the pre-order customers. That being said, they will resume in accepting new orders sometime in late 2017.

The L16 camera boasts a DSLR-like quality of images but in a smaller package; no wonder why people are very eager to take hold of one. We can see a camera clothed in black with a flat grip section, thanks to the recently leaked final product images. There are also six 150mm f/2.4 telephoto lenses, five 70mm f/2 midrange lenses, and five 28mm f/2 wide-angle lenses. The camera can capture photos using the 52-megapixel lens and store it in the 256GB internal memory storage. It even lets the photographer change the focal plane and depth of field after he has taken the image.

Regarding the 52-megapixel camera, Light said in a statement found on their website, "The L16 uses multiple small lenses to shoot photos at the same time, then fuses them into a DSLR-quality image. The design allows the L16 to gather 10 times more light than a traditional smartphone, delivering incredible low-light performance." Going by the camera's looks and promises, we can't wait to see it in our bare eyes and get our hands on it. Are you willing to spend 1700 bucks for the 16-lens Light camera?
