Stories about Light.

Last week, our CEO, Dave Grannan, gave an update on L16 pre-order sales. Today I’m happy to share that we have now sold our entire pre-order allotment of L16 cameras, and that the pre-sales window for the L16 camera has now closed. Now our attention shifts entirely to finishing development of the L16 and building out the Light ecosystem.

As we continue taking our prototypes out on photo-adventures, we’ll be posting new images to our gallery and to our photoblog, Captured. If you are interested in meeting

L16 Pre-sales Update

Happy 2016! I’m Dave Grannan, CEO and co-founder of Light. As we move into the new year, I'd like to officially welcome you to the Light family. We are incredibly grateful for our enthusiastic community and early supporters who pre-ordered a Light L16 camera. Last October, we started taking pre-orders for the L16. We chose the pre-order model in order to engage the photographic community in ongoing product development, establish product demand, and activate our global supply chain.

The L16: Under-the-hood

The L16: Under-the-hood

by Rajiv Laroia, Light co-founder and CTO Since launching the L16, we have received many questions about how Light’s computational imaging technology works. While the final product specifications won’t be announced until spring 2016, we are glad to share a bit more information about our systems design approach to photography. Below is a video of a talk I gave at Stanford University two weeks ago, which provides more details about Light’s technology. We're including some time markers to make navigating a bit easier. While this talk is still fairly broad, I hope it’ll answer a few more of your technical questions. You
