Fitted with 16 camera modules, the Light L16 Camera can replace that bulky DSLR. The compact camera uses multiple lenses and sensors with varying focal lengths to capture high-resolution images.

By capturing multiple perspectives at different exposure values, you can adjust the focus or enlarge your photo once the shot is taken. It's finished off with a five-inch HD touchscreen that features on-camera adjustments allowing users to edit their pictures and transfer them to their desktops while still on location.

Nostalgia. It's an oddly large part of our lives — from Instagram filters to movies to retro fashions and vinyl records and the off-the-grid movement.
