DxO has introduced an interesting new connected camera called the DxO One for Apple iPhone owners. DxO claims the camera brings DSLR-like imaging capabilities thanks to its high quality optics and large sensor size.
The DxO One packs a 1” type 20.2MP CMOS sensor and a bright 32mm equivalent f1.8 aperture lens. Unlike the Sony QX cameras, the DxO One doesn’t connect to your iPhone using Wi-Fi, instead it attaches to an iPhone or an iPad via the lighting connector. One of the main advantages of a physical connection is that you will not notice any lag that is usually seen on the Sony QX cameras.
The DxO One connected camera offers an ISO range between 100 and 51,200, and shutter speed between 1/8000s and 15s. You will be able to shoot images in various formats such as JPEG, DNG, and DXO SuperRAW. As far as videos go, the camera can shoot up to 1080p videos at 30 fps. Slow-mo videos can be captured at 720p resolution at 120fps.
The camera comes with its own camera app that offers a full set of manual controls. It includes a microSD card slot as well, so you will be able to store all your captured photos and videos on the microSD card instead of filling up your iPhone’s limited onboard storage.
DxO One connected camera will be available for $600 in September in the US and for about 650 euros in Europe. Pre-orders are now live for buyers in the US.
