Must have iPhone accessory | DxO One Camera: iPhone Photo Perfection
Smartphone cameras are getting better every day, but they are nevertheless nowhere near as reliable as a mirrorless camera or a DSLR. However, a dedicated camera is too bulky for shutterbugs looking to travel light. The Dxo One camera is truly a great compromise between the two (phone/camera). The 1-inch sensor is extremely larger than that of any smartphone. However, Dxo One is still small enough to slip into your pocket. Yes, it is pricey, but after taking the Dxo One on a few trips, I am highly impressed by its quality and convenience.
The DxO One is truly unlike any other camera. It is about the size of a charger for your phone, the 3.8 ounce. The DxO One slipped just easily into my pocket and making it just great for when I need to travel light.
The Dxo, One front of the camera, has a lens cover that, when it is slid open, causes the Lightning jack just to pop out the side of the Dxo one. The connector rotates about 45 degrees in all direction, so you can easily hold the DxO and iPhone above/below your head. And still, see what is on screen. I just wish that it felt more secure; I am always scared of it snapping off the connector.
The DxO One’s 1-inch BSI CMOS sensor produced superb images that were significantly sharper than those from the iPhone 6s.
One has to wonder, that, will people who find the convenience of a smartphone camera, especially one as great as the iPhone’s, be willing to carry around the Dxo One as a secondary device which is sole functionally be almost entirely dependent on said phones? Only time will tell. However, if the Dxo can deliver the claimed “DSLR image quality” with a super-small a device that pairs with the always-connected to the convenience of a smartphone, then they may have a winner on their hands.
