Light L16 News Highlights

Curated news about the Light L16 Camera

This is the Final Design of the Light L16 52MP 16-Camera Camera

Update from PetaPixel (Source is of course lightRumors)

Mac Edition Radio

As exciting as new digital photographic equipment is, most of it isn’t that different then the cameras of Nicéphore Niépce, Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre, and William Henry Fox Talbot. They all featured a single lens, and light sensitive material at the focal plane. For all their technical wizardry, the vast majority of digital cameras are the same, except for a digital sensor in place of light sensitive metal, glass, paper, or film. The new Light L16 camera is a radical departure that could shake the foundations of current camera design.
