How is the L16 different from other cameras?

Last updated:

The Light L16 Camera is the first multi-aperture computational camera. The L16 makes it easy for anyone to take DSLR-quality images and is small and light enough to fit in your pocket. Light’s technology combines folded optics with sophisticated computational imaging algorithms to deliver the highest quality images from the smallest possible device. 

A traditional DSLR uses one lens to focus light onto one sensor in order to capture a photo. The Light Camera uses multiple apertures and sensors, in conjunction with state of the art computational imaging, to combine those images into a single, higher quality photo with up to 52 megapixels.

Check out our brief explanation video.

For an in-depth look at how the camera works, watch our CTO and co-founder, Rajiv, give a speech on the camera’s technology.
