Light's 9-Lens Camera Phone Could Even Score with DSLRs

Light's multi-lens camera tech is coming to a phone 3 camera lenses? Psh, Light might be bringing 9 lenses to a new smartphone

It would make sense for each lens to have its own unique function, similar to how the triple lens on the Huawei P20 Pro works, and such lenses may include a monochrome lens, a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. Light's standalone 16-lens camera costs $1,950.

Light showed the Washington Post smartphone prototypes which had rear cameras sporting between 5-9 lenses.

Thai rescuers locate missing boys and coach alive in cave
It's unclear how they survived but the rescuers dropped food through the holes of the cave, hoping the victims would find it. Search teams from China, Japan, Australia and England had also traveled to the area to assist in the rescue operations.

It's unclear whether Light will create the multi-lens phone itself, or if it is working with a current smartphone maker to bring the handset to market. And the most distinguishing feature is that it has up to nine camera lenses on the back. As insane as it sounds, Light, the company behind the L16 camera with 16 lenses on one side (see the video at the bottom of this article), is said to be working on a handset. "It's truly pocketable. Yet in the end, consumers want the convenience of a phone with the power of a dedicated camera", TechCrunch reported. The camera is capable of taking 52MP photos, which are formed stitching together more than 10 perspectives. The camera then uses algorithms to combine them into one high-resolution image. This phone has seven fewer lenses, but also requires a processor, screen, and other phone-specific features. The multi-lens system is able to achieve good performance even with low-light conditions and it can apply depth effects thanks to several different sensors included.

The camera does not come cheap though - it is priced at €2,050 (roughly $2,389) and it can be purchased directly from Light's website. This pocketable camera comes with quite a hefty price. Is the rumoured Light phone immediately on your radar?
