Our perspective on innovation and other things
Market research shows that 50% of folks who own an SLR camera no longer use it. It’s simply too bulky to carry around, especially with a full complement of lenses, and most of us find it more convenient to shoot with our phones.
Enter brilliant inventor Rajiv Laroia, who stopped carrying his SLR for the reason mentioned above. Laroia observed that tiny, smartphone-sized camera lenses were becoming more and more affordable, and he then spent nine months studying optics to design a camera that would incorporate them. The result is the Light L16 camera, which incorporates 16 lenses, each with their own sensor, and fires 10 of them with every shot.
