Camera with 158 lenses is a new Guinness record

15 December 2009

A professor at Japan's Nagoya Institute of Technology developed the camera to capture images of a flickering flame from different angles. Researchers hope to create 3D images from the photographs to better understand the efficiency of burning fuel.

The lenses were assembled in four rows on the camera's body and mounted on a semicircular arc-like aluminum frame.
