L16 Camera to capture 52-megapixel shot. It is a UN believable camera technology to capture in L16 camera, on this camera are using in 16 lenses at a time in using one shot to capture like 52-megapixel camera shot. Slimmer L16 weighs less than a pound and fits in your back pocket, yet packs 16 lenses and sensors.

Raise your hand if you or someone you love goes on vacation laden like a pack mule with camera gear. Big-lens digital SLR cameras sure take lovely photos but carrying one is literally a pain in the neck.
So I’m relieved to report that a new leap in high-end camera tech is replacing the big-honking’ lens with something much more manageable: a bunch of small lenses, plus smart software.
That’s the big—or, rather, little—idea in a $1,950 camera that goes on sale Wednesday from a startup called Light
Still, my field experience with the L16 proves that Light’s crazy idea actually works and is poised to shape the future of photography
