For your Information Light is a camera manufacturer that made highlight in late 2017 when their most awaited camera called L16 came to light. L16 here refers to a “point and shoot camera” with 16 lenses that could shoot photos of DSLR quality but with a camera merely the size of a smartphone. L16 was announced in 2015 and it went into production in Q2 2017. When the camera got into the hands of reviewers their opinions were mixed. It surely had the potential of shooting excellent photos but camera optimization as well as the supporting software was not on point. Being a first generation product it got ignored in hope of a better successor.
Now Washington Post has revealed that camera manufacturer Light is working on a smartphone with more than 5 lenses. We already have a triple lens smartphone P20 Pro in the market so it makes sense that want to do something beyond. According to reports light already has some working prototypes ranging from 5 to 9 lenses. The prototypes are capable of shooting photos between 52MP and 64MP while P20 pro shoots maximum at 40MP.
What makes it interesting is that every lens has different focal lengths so when we press the shutter it capture photos from every single lens and then merges them together and the result is an overall optimized and balanced image. So with these many lenses Light aims to deliver a better low light photography as well as top of the line depth sensing for better portraits and Bokeh effect. We are not sure if light doing this on its own or has partnered with a smartphone manufacturer. But reports say that we might see this beast at the end of 2018.
