Light L16 Camera is now available for shipping .

With more eyes than a spider , the Light camera company plans to revolutionize photography by introducing bridge camera that sits between a DSLR and a smartphone . the product , named the Light L16 , has 16 -13MP sensors  can deliver a composite image of 52MP!(And record 4k - click here to read more about this on their website) . The front fa├žade, which basically captures and reflects light on all 16 units which are fitted with Five 28mm  modules at f/2.0 , Five 70mm modules at f/2.0 and Six 150mm modules at f/2.4  are arranged in a maze like pattern with reflective mirrors which allows the stacking of optics without the use of a lens barrel or extra thickness .

Composing a shot on the L16 is as simple as using a smartphone , tap to focus on the 5" Full HD display and voila , but the L16 is built for much greater feats , and so the manual mode (a proper shutter button is included as well) will allow users to select between jpeg and RAW , ISO (100-3200) , 15 s to 1/8000 (SS) and dual tone LED flash for color mixing .

Video goodies on the camera may not be as impressive as the photographic aspect , but it is capable of shooting UHD 4k in either 28mm ,70mm and 150mm lenses .

Running on Android and a powerful 64bit Snapdragon 820 system on a chip + a dedicated image processing engine , the camera is certainly capable of pulling off  high res composite photos and even video in different focal lengths , but so far the biggest hurdle for this camera was availability as it has been delayed on a few occasions (since its announcement in late 2015) but now ,the L16  finally available for shipping.

With its price adjusted to the final retail price of  $1699 . The Light L16 promises to be a great addition(and a pricy one !) to those who want to shoot on a novel platform , the design , which mimics a smartphone will also be ideal for those who want to take high quality photos in areas where larger cameras are banned and a single phone sensor wont suffice . Interested ? here are some pictures captured by the L16. You can get more information on availability and pricing on the L16 by joining the Light mailing list by clicking this link to visit their home-page.
