|Multiple sensors stitch together an image.|
It is interesting how the challenge is to never miss a shot. So the first launch of the Light camera (claiming to be "world's first multi-aperature computational camera) moves closer to capturing what you see 24/7. It can always be with you! So when you see it you can capture the moment. Size of a smart phone it weaves images together to: produce a large hi-res image, build images to simulate different depth-of-field focus (f/2 to f/16), and it can be set to wide-angle, normal or telephone capture.
The first launch at $1600 has sold out, it is amazing camera for the photojournalist and street photographer who wants to be a "fly on the wall." It beats having to stick auxiliary lens over the lens on a smart phone.
I doubt it can shoot bursts of shots, but wait, maybe it can take a burst of shots and let you pull sections from all the shots and create a "perfect photo," where everyone is smiling with their eyes open!?
George Eastman saw how everyone should capture images, not just the rich who could afford to hire a painter or professional. His dream is finally becoming a reality.
