DxO, a world leader in digital imaging technologies, today introduced the DxO ONE, a revolutionary camera that delivers DSLR image quality in an extremely compact size. At 3.8 oz 108 g and 2.65'' 6.9 cm tall, 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.

Made of high-grade aluminium, the DxO ONE is a premium camera that has been engineered with the iPhone and iPad in mind it attaches via the Lightning connector, turning the beautiful iPhone display into the cameras viewfinder. The camera swivels 60, enabling creative perspectives.

The DxO ONE achieves a DxOMark Sensor Score of 70, and up to 85 when using the SuperRAW 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.

''The image quality of the DxO ONE is stunning,'' said Jerome Meniere, CEO and founder of DxO. ''Its possible to shoot crystal-clear images under moonlight, which is incredible for a camera this small. The shallow depth of field and bokeh of the lens at f/1.8 is absolutely perfect for portrait photography.''

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, where they are immediately displayed on the iPhones or iPads beautiful high-resolution screen, and can be instantly shared to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, leveraging the iPhones natural connectivity.

By default, the DxO ONE automatically keeps the valuable high-dynamic RAW digital negative files, enabling post-production editing flexibility in RAW conversion programs like DxO OpticsPro and Adobe Lightroom.

For the ultimate in noise-free image quality - even in very low light - users can choose to capture images in DxOs new SuperRAW format. A SuperRAW file is the result of 4 RAW frames captured in quick succession. When the DxO ONE camera is connected to a Mac or PC, the DxO Connect companion software automatically merges the four images together using the very latest in spatial and temporal noise reduction.

''The DxO ONE leverages all of the imaging technologies that weve been perfecting for well over a decade,'' explained Frederic Guichard, DxOs Chief Image Scientist. ''It brings together mobile imaging miniaturization technologies with a large 1-inch sensor and state-of-the-art software image processing.''

''Being image lovers at DxO, we have built the camera we dreamed of for ourselves and could not find anywhere else uncompromised image quality always available in our pocket,'' concluded Jerome Meniere, CEO and founder of DxO. ''We believe that, as the first truly connected camera, the DxO ONE opens a completely new era in digital imaging and we cant wait to see what incredible images photographers around the world will be able to create with it.''
