The mid-aughts were an exciting period in which razor companies, which had long stuck to just one or two blades in their cartridge razors, raced to see just how many blades they could cram into a cartridge — a sea change memorialized forever in the classic 2004 Onion headline (ostensibly quoting Gillette’s then-CEO James M. Kilts), “Fuck Everything, We’re Doing Five Blades.” (Gillette went on to actually do five blades just a year later with its Fusion series in 2005, and in 2018 you can now buy a razor with seven blades to handle all that alpha-male stubble.)

The same thing is now happening with rear cameras on smartphones. If you thought just two rear cameras on your smartphone were enough to take great photos, you’re a sucker: you really need three. Or maybe even four! Or hell, maybe six?
