Light is working on a smartphone with a 9 camera lens system

It's not every day that a camera pops up on the market that makes you do a double take, just to make sure that what you're looking at is real. Utilizing multiple lenses, this piece of equipment puts the power of capturing breath taking photographs back in the hands of an everyday camera user by pushing the boundaries of camera technology past anything we may have seen before.

Light showed the Washington Post smartphone prototypes which had rear cameras sporting between 5-9 lenses. But it looks like the number of lenses or sensors on a smartphone could go up to nine, thanks to a camera company called Light, which is working on such a device.

The company well-known for making the Light L16 camera with 16 lenses and capable 81-megapixel images is now turning its attention onto phones. Well, you're about to get a case of phone-camera-envy anyway.

Mumbai rains: Jet Airways, IndiGo, Vistara to accommodate delayed passengers
The cascading effect of the bridge crash and the heavy downpour was witnessed on the Western Express Highway, the main S.V. The Western Railway resumed services between Bandra and Churchgate and between Goregaon and Virar around 9 a.m.

Why so many cameras? Then, that information is stitched together by an algorithm to create a high-resolution image that could theoretically rival a photo captured on a DSLR camera. This phone has seven fewer lenses, but also requires a processor, screen, and other phone-specific features.

The Light smartphone will be announced later in 2018, the Post reports, but don't expect it to come cheap given that the Light L16 is a $1,950 point-and-shoot camera. The report says the prototype is able to capture 64-megapixel pics with low-light capabilities and special depth effects. This pocketable camera comes with quite a hefty price. Light is now developing the phone and it has also created a prototype with 5 to 9 lens with incredible zoom capabilities.
