DxO One Camera for iPhone
DxO are famous with photographers for their image quality scoring service - judging the sharpness of cameras and lenses. To throw their hat into the ring with a piece of hardware is a very bold move, but an exciting one for the consumer - as they certainly know their onions when it comes to image quality!
This isn't an accessory though, this is a powerful camera add on for your iPhone or iPad. Using your device's screen as a viewfinder and lcd display - the DxO lets the user take images using advanced photography modes present on advanced cameras. P, A, S and M modes are all present - exposure compensation and touch focusing add to the enhanced experience. With the iPhone being marketed as a camera, DxO have obviously had enough of poor low-light pictures, with minimal depth of field being posted all over the internet.
The DxO One has a maximum aperture of f/1.8, meaning when you take photos on it through your iPhone or iPad - you actually can control depth of field. Plus, an ISO range of 100-51200 mean low light photographs can be taken without a fear of excessive grain. Image quality from this device is truly much better than what a smartphone can create, it's sensor is roughly three times larger meaning that the image detail it can pick up is far greater - and for those background-blur lovers, depth of field is achievable.
All of this is made possible using the DxO One app - for which you will be prompted when connecting for the first time. Once installed, when you connect the camera to your phone or tablet's lightning connector, up pops the app. Those familiar with iOS will not be disappointed by the quality of this application. Photographers will be delighted at how easy this device and its settings are controlled via the app. What's more, this is a tiny device, so much so that it really doesn't fill much more of a pocket when attached to the end of your iPhone or iPad. Please note that the DxO One will not operate without a MicroSD card - although it can save images direct to your phone, it needs a memory card to operate.
