DxO ONE IPhone APri

DxO has introduced the DxO ONE, a revolutionary camera that delivers DSLR image quality in an extremely compact size. At 3.8 oz (108 g) and 2.65” (6.9 cm) tall, the DxO ONE is so small that it easily fits in a pocket, yet it features an ultra-high quality f/1.8, 32mm equivalent aspherical lens with a variable 6-blade iris and a 1-inch 20.2MP CMOS BSI sensor capable of capturing high-resolution images even in very low light.

Made of high-grade aluminum, the DxO ONE is a premium camera that has been engineered with the iPhone and iPad in mind: it attaches via the Lightning connector, turning the beautiful iPhone display into the camera’s viewfinder. The camera swivels ±60°, enabling creative perspectives.

A free iOS app enables control of the individual settings on the DxO ONE camera, including aperture (from f/1.8 to f/11), shutter speed (from 15s to 1/8000s), and ISO (from 100 to 51200). In addition to an Auto mode, the DxO ONE app offers various capture modes, including multiple Scene modes, Speed, Aperture Priority, or full Manual mode – and the camera interface automatically adapts to the selected mode for a unique user experience.

The DxO ONE also records outstanding videos at 1080p/30fps or 720p/120fps.

In addition to the built-in microSD memory card, photos or video can be automatically stored in the iOS camera roll, where they are immediately displayed on the iPhone’s or iPad’s beautiful high-resolution screen, and can be instantly shared to Facebook®, Instagram, and Twitter, leveraging the iPhone’s natural connectivity.

By default, the DxO ONE automatically keeps the valuable high-dynamic RAW ‘digital negative’ files, enabling post-production editing flexibility in RAW conversion programs like DxO OpticsPro and Adobe Lightroom.

DxO ONE Connecting To IPhone

For the ultimate in noise-free image quality – even in very low light – users can choose to capture images in DxO’s new SuperRAW format. A SuperRAW file is the result of 4 RAW frames captured in quick succession. When the DxO ONE camera is connected to a Mac or PC, the DxO Connect companion software automatically merges the four images together using the very latest in spatial and temporal noise reduction.

The DxO ONE is available for pre-order in the UK via the DxO website. It is priced at £499 (VAT included), with delivery planned for Q4 2015. For a limited time, the DxO ONE comes with free licenses of two award-winning RAW image processing software, DxO OpticsPro (ELITE Edition, sold separately for £159), and DxO FilmPack (ELITE Edition, sold separately for £99), which digitally reproduces the look and feel of analog films.

I know it's asking for the earth, but this would be more useful if it had either a MFT sensor and fast lens or else a decent zoom range. I'm not sure what the logic of a 32mm eq lens is - it seems neither flesh nor fowl.

A nice step up from your smartphone's camera for sure, but there are other good pocketable cameras that offer more flexibility. In good light I can get reasonably serviceable photos from my iPhone 6+ where there are more challenging conditions and a real camera is needed I'm not sure this will fit the bill [not for me personally in any case].

Have to wait and see about this could be interesting.

Around 200 shots on the battery might be limiting.

Think they should sell the software separately and reduce the price accordingly though.

Not sure about that - if I really wanted the software that might be an inducement to buy the device. Bundling the software adds very little in physical cost to the OEM, so it would make sense for them to offer that carrot. I wouldn't anticipate removing the offer would actually lower the cost of the hardware by all that much.

You mean the bundled software isn't worth half the value of the camera after all 😀

Good point Ross_D. I remember using and still have roll film cameras.

I like the way times are changing personally Grin

Love the idea although the price may hinder it and the thunderbolt 'plug' is hardly the firmest of connections. I wonder how strong it will be if it takes a knock.

At 500 for the DxO One and another 600 for the iphone 6 I think I would rather spend the money on a decent pocket camera with a better lens and proper zoom capabilities.

...also just noticed that it's on sale in the US for 385 now.
