We improved the quality of your L16 images—again

As you know well by now, our engineers are constantly refining and tuning the Light L16’s proprietary algorithms—what are essentially our camera’s secret sauce. In our most recent update, we made major improvements to the L16’s image quality through tone mapping, which has a big impact on how we render dynamic range in our images. It’s helpful to understand dynamic range before we jump into local tone mapping. Dynamic range represents the values between the brightest brights in the image’s highlights and the darkest darks in the shadows. Having a ...

Introducing a Completely New Lumen

Even before we started shipping the Light L16, we knew there would be several areas of our product that would need special attention in the following months. One such area, as we discussed in our self-review, was the Light-specific desktop software, Lumen. The application is a necessity for L16 photographers—you need it to transfer, process, and perfect your images—but as we quickly learned from our customer’s feedback, Lumen was also one of the biggest pain points. In just a few weeks, our team entirely rebuilt our desktop software from the ground up. We’ ...
