Light is planning to release a 9-cameras smartphone


After the Light L16 computational camera got horrible reviews, there are reports that the company is planning to release a 9-cameras smartphone (pictured above) by the end of the year:

"A camera-maker called Light has taken this idea furthest. It showed me concept and working prototype phones with between five and nine lenses — yes, nine — on the back. It says its phone design is capable of capturing 64 megapixel shots, better low-light performance and sophisticated depth effects.

Before you get too excited: All those lenses — and the processor power required to stitch together all those individual shots — don’t come cheap. A stand-alone camera from Light with 16 lenses costs $1,950.

When will I get it? Light, which counts giant phone manufacturer Foxconn as an investor, says a smartphone featuring its multi-lens array will be announced later this year."
