Check out this new Light L16 (16 cameras in one)

Light introduced the L16 camera, or rather 16 multi-aperture computational cameras in one small compact package. The price is $1,699. Additional information:

"A Palo Alto, CA-based company called Light has an interesting new compact device that promises to be 16 cameras in one. Called the L16, the slender, rectangle-shaped device is stuffed with an arachnoid-like array of cameras and lenses, which combine with software to capture what the company claims will be DSLR-worthy images."

"Behind each of those plastic lenses is a 13-megapixel camera module, each grouped into three different focal lengths. There are five 35mm modules, five of the 70mm version, and six 150mm modules. To make it all fit, the bigger 70mm and 150mm modules utilize what's known as "folded optics," where a mirror faces out and the optics and sensors actually lie perpendicular to the direction that you're shooting. On the back of the L16 is a 5-inch touchscreen, and that's where you'll handle all the controls from changing settings, to zooming, to focusing." (The Verge)

"The people behind Light are claiming that in addition to resolution, the camera performs amazingly in low light, and produces detail that is even sharper than pro DSLRs. I was able to take a look at some of their sample photos, and while it’s impossible to draw any conclusions from a limited set of pre-picked photos, my first impressions were that image quality was indeed terrific. Here are some scaled-down samples, which are nice, but don’t prove much about the camera’s ability." (Gizmodo)
