Move over DSLR cameras, because here comes the L16 from Light. Instead of single interchangeable lenses, the L16 packs 16 cameras into its smartphone-sized body it uses to snap images at up to 52 megapixels. The camera packs in five 35mm and five 70mm focal length lenses, along with six 150mm lenses. Throw in a little computational photography, and you get a single camera that Light founder Rajiv Laroia says is more versatile and offers better photo quality than the current crop of DSLRs. He says a similar DSLR setup would cost about US$6,000, but the L16 costs $1,200. The downside is that it's only available for preorder now. You'll have to wait until to try one out. You can check out Mr. Laroia talking about the L16 on Robert Scoble's Facebook page.
