DxO, developer of the world’s most advanced image processing technologies, has today introduced a revolutionary new pocket-sized DxO ONE camera that takes DSLR-quality images and features a 20.2 MP 1-inch sensor and a high-end f/1.8 lens. Best of all, the camera has the ability to connect directly to an iPhone via the Lightning connector, turning the smartphone’s beautiful display into the camera’s viewfinder.
Weighing just 108g and 2.65-inch in size, 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.
The DxO ONE achieves a DxOMark Sensor Score of 70, and up to 85 when using the SuperRAWTM technology (described below), on par with full frame DSLRs and dramatically higher than any smartphone. DxOMark is the industry-standard protocol for camera and lens image quality assessment, used throughout the camera industry and photography press.
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. By default, the DxO ONE keeps the valuable high-dynamic RAW ‘digital negative’ files, enabling post-production editing flexibility in RAW conversion programs.
The DxO ONE can be pre-ordered today at a price of $599, with shipments scheduled to begin in September in the U.S.
