The ONE is built to expand mobile imaging possibilities while retaining the intuitiveness and efficiency of always having your camera with you.

As a complement to your existing iPhone or iPad, the ONE retains a self-contained design and utilizes an internal lithium-ion battery for power and accepts microSD memory cards for saving your imagery. Dedicated shooting modes, such as Selfie or Sports, can be used in addition to conventional manual exposure modes, and a contrast-detection AF system helps to ensure sharp results with touch-to-focus control accessible via the iOS app.

Designed for Use with iPhone and iPad

The unique, compact form factor of the camera is designed for use with an iPhone or iPad, and connects to the mobile device via its Lightning port. A dedicated app offers intuitive control over camera settings, live view monitoring, image playback, and the ability to save imagery to your mobile device for instant sharing.

The DxO is compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, 5c, 5, iPad Air 2, Air, mini 3, 2, or iPad (4th gen.), running iOS 8 or later, via the Lightning connector.

20.2MP 1" BSI-CMOS Sensor

A large 20.2MP 1" back-illuminated CMOS sensor offers rich image quality and notable low-light performance, using the same image processing technology found in DxO's software, with extended sensitivity from ISO 100-51200. Shutter speeds are available from 30 to 1/20,000 sec. and both manual and automated shooting modes can be used.

Beyond still imagery, the ONE can also record full HD 1080p/30 video as well as HD 720p/120 movies.

SuperRAW and DNG File Formats

By default, the ONE is configured to record in JPG + DNG; resulting in one file for quick web sharing and another with greater latitude for post production. The camera can also record using a proprietary SuperRAW capture mode, which takes four successive images and composites them to gain increased sensitivity and reduced noise to suit extreme low-light shooting. The JPG + DNG shooting mode offers extensive compatibility with image editing applications while the SuperRAW .dxo file format is solely compatible with DxO editing applications.

Wide-Angle Prime Lens

A bright, wide-angle 11.9mm f/1.8 prime lens is incorporated into the sleek design and provides a 32mm equivalent focal length. A six element design employs aspherical elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions in order to produce sharp, clear imagery with high color accuracy.

The fast f/1.8 maximum aperture offers control over depth of field and benefits working in low-light conditions. Shallow depth of field imagery is further complemented by a six-blade diaphragm for a smooth out-of-focus quality.

Design

  • Sleek, portable construction is designed to be used in conjunction with an iPhone or iPad and connects via the mobile device's Lightning port.
  • Lightning connector is collapsible to maintain a sleek form factor when not connected to an iPhone or iPad.
  • +/- 60° pivoting design better supports working from high and low shooting angles as well as front-facing selfie compositions.
  • A built-in sliding lens cover both protects the lens when not in use and turns the camera on when ready to shoot.
  • An OLED touchscreen allows intuitive control over settings when shooting unconnected to an iPhone or iPad.
  • Both a gyroscope and an accelerometer are used to recognize the shooting orientation.
  • Compact form factor is accentuated by a forged aluminum alloy shell for durability.
  • A micro-USB port allows you to connect the ONE to a computer for offloading imagery and also serves as the charging port for the internal battery.
  • Built-in lithium-ion battery offers approximately 200 shots per charge.

Other Camera Features

  • Image files can be saved to a microSD memory card as well as transferred directly to the iOS device.
  • A contrast-detection AF system helps to ensure precise focusing as closely as 7.9" away. Face-detection is also available to bias focusing performance on recognized faces within the scene.
  • Single-shot, continuous, and tap-to-focus focusing modes are available.
  • For adjusting your field of view, 3x digital zoom can be used to gain a closer perspective of your subject.
  • Two-stage shutter button allows you to pre-focus and meter prior to making the exposure.
  • Electronic image stabilization is available for video recordings in order to minimize the appearance of handheld camera shake.
  • Selfie mode is automatically detected and starts a 3-2-1 countdown as well as brightens your iPhone/iPad's screen for increased lighting on your face. Camera modes: Auto, Sports, Portrait, Landscape, Night, Program, Aperture Priority, Speed Priority, Manual, and Selfie.

DxO ONE Reviews

DXO apparently discontinuing. Warranty still honored.

I liked this camera a lot. I bought from B&H in August of 2017. Unfortunately it stopped connecting to my phone about a month ago. The camera did not fail, just the lightning connector. Knowing that DXO was in bankruptcy and planning to drop the DXO One, I was concerned. Emailed support and received a reply to the effect that the camera could not be repaired, but that they would send me a new one when I returned the defective unit. They were as good as their word and the new camera should arrive tomorrow. It seems that DXO is going to concentrate on their software business and stop making these cameras. That's a shame. I made some great images with it and took it everywhere. Yes, it had some quirks, but I liked it as a small yet serious camera. Will take good care of the replacement.

Great quality camera. It's very sleek and easy to carry around and pull out. I'm a steet and music event photographer and it has really helped me out a bunch on my ventures. The only thing I can complain about is the speed of the app after taking photos, it's takes a few seconds to load. Other than that, I pretty much love this camera. I can get my photos onto my social media almost emediately after shooting. The photos are almost as nice as my Nikon d3300.

Just got it today and as of 11/30/2017, it seems like it does not support IPhone X. I connected it and does not recognize at all. Tried it on my old 7S and works fine. The connector is just long enough to connect to Iphone with no cover. Any kind of case or cover, it will not connect far in enough/not work. Picture quality looks only as good as the Iphone screen resolution so I need to download to computer with 4K monitor to maybe tell the difference. So is it worth the money? I am still questioning but I will continue to use it. Battery life is maybe One Hour which is not bad but not great either. Charge time is less than one hour so it is not bad. The unit gets warm during use but not uncomfortably hot. Remote connection has a lot of lag. but okay. I will continue to use it but will I buy it for my Camera/Gadget loving dad's Christmas gift? I don't know...

The DXO ONE camera is a little wonder.

The image quality is excellent and in the Super Raw mode, extreme cropping is no problem as the image quality and sharpness holds up very well. I carry the camera in the pouch on my belt and hardly know it is there. I rigged up an Olympus 17mm OVF to a female lightning connector to hang it on the camera body when using it in a stand alone mode ( i.e. not attached to the iPhone ). The OVF has approx. the same FOV as the lens on the DXO One camera and the set up works quite well. When attached to my iPhone SE, it works as represented and I have no concerns about the phone falling off of the lightning connector. The battery capacity is on the small side, so I power down when not using it. As a power backup, I also purchased a Xuma 2600 Mah Portable Power Pack to plug-in to camera should I run out of power. I have had no reason to use the battery pack yet.

Good image quality, but I don't think its practical

In perfect daylight, and even good lighting, I would say that the image quality is on par with my iPhone 7. Where this camera blows away the iPhone is in very dark locations. Using the manual controls, you're able to get some killer shots. It's kind of an inconvenience to carry this around in my pocket and fumble around with it, open the connector and insert it into my phone, and then fire up the dxo camera app. If I traveling somewhere or going to do some shooting, I rather carry around a lightweight dedicated mirrorless camera with good lens. I feel that this camera attachment is a bit clunky and kind of awkward to hold and shoot with. While I was able to hold the camera and adjust, I don't feel that the lightning connector was secure and I had a fear that I was going to drop everything. I also don't like that I have to remove my case from either my iPad or iPhone to get the camera to attach.

Camera is great. It's even better that you can charge it and use it at the same Time the pictures are great it's basically a Sony rx100 without a flash takes great pictures and you can control it right from your phone.

question

Will it works with iPhone X??
Asked by: Anonymous
Normally, I use it with a iPhone SE. I asked my girlfriend to try it on her iPhone X. She had the app loaded and took test shots in about a minute. So, yes it seems to work fine on an X.

What about image stabilization
Asked by: Anonymous
I use my DXO on an iPhone 6S+ and find the image stabilization to be quite good. I do use a selfie stick or small tripod much of the time as a stabilization device.Matthew1
