Video: the DxO One iPhone Companion Camera



Kirk Paulsen, the SVP of Product Marketing from DxO, brings a wealth of information to the table regarding the new DxO ONE companion camera that attaches to your smartphone to bring DSLR-quality imaging and control to your mobile device. Paulsen emphasizes the image quality, skin tones, and low-light capability, as well as its RAW and Super RAW capture. The prime draw of the DxO ONE is that it can be “connected”—physically connected to your smart device, connected to DxO support and wirelessly connected to social media sites and all of the services supported by Apple iOS.

Physically, the DxO is compact, maneuverable, can shoot while charging and houses a 20.2MP 1" BSI sensor and an f/1.8 maximum aperture lens. Photojournalist John Stanmeyer discusses an assignment he had in Kyrgyzstan, in which he incorporated the DxO into his normal workflow and was very pleased with the results, especially in low and complex lighting. The example he shows, shot at 12800 ISO, of the night sky with his yurt in the foreground, speaks volumes regarding the image quality the DxO can produce.
