    Not really clear what is the advantage over conventional camera. 10 lens 10 sensor won't be cheap.

    We can see why you say it's not clear. The name alone suggests there's 16 lenses. All 16 takes a photo and creates a 52MP composite

    But what is the advantage? To get a 52 mp file? Superior noise performance? Basically the website didnt tell us enough.Wonder what is the total sensor size vs mega pixel ratio and if iso performance is good. Anyway interesting concept hope more information would be available .. I won't be clicking the preorder button anytime soon.

    It's more along the lines of what Lytro is doing as well, basically a light-field camera. It gives the ability to shift focus in post-production, create stereoscopic 3D images, simulate shallower depth of field etc.

    I think the main advantage of this design is that they can use multiple focal lengths simultaneously, and have a slimmer profile yet produce what a larger sensor can do. Though I would imagine the confusion of which lens to look at.
