DxO, pioneer in digital imaging technologies, announces a major update to its award-winning DxO ONE miniaturized camera that lets demanding photographers take their mobile image making to the next level. Less than three months after the release of a 2.0 update that brought Wi-Fi as a new feature, DxO continues to extend the use of its pro-quality camera by introducing the world’s first seamless RAW workflow, direct from the DxO ONE to your iPhone or iPad. The version 2.1 update takes full advantage of RAW support in iOS 10, enabling a one-touch transfer of DxO ONE RAW files to the iOS Photos library where they can be processed on-the-go. Available to all DxO ONE users free of charge, the update also enables direct Wi-Fi remote control, and adds other performance boosting enhancements.
Moment openly admit that they were ‘more than a little bit worried’ that there lenses would not work with the new Apple iPhone 7. Following testing they have now confirmed that their lenses do, at least ‘tentatively’ work, which is great news as Apple have changed the sensor, lens and aperture combinations in the iPhone 7. Moment still have additional testing to do with their lenses and the iPhone 7 though, they need to validate image quality and work out how to modify their exisiting mounting plate design to work with the iPhone 7.
They have not tested their lenses with the iPhone 7 Plus yet, so we will update you with that news as soon as we hear but good news so far.

The macro lens features a zoom function – unique for accessory lenses of this type – for flexible image composition. The new lenses can be used on the Apple iPhone) with customized mounting brackets.

DxO announced yesterday (24 November 2015) a new update to their app software for the DxO One, designed to be paired with an Apple iPhone (it can function as a stand-alone camera, albeit without a viewfinder).
Version 1.2, which we understand is due out in December 2015, will introduce new camera controls including a continuous shooting mode, access to advanced capture parameters and photo information with a simple swipe and one-tap access to hyperfocal distance in manual focus mode, as well as the ability to reposition the magnification loupe for critical focusing. If you’re a fan of selfies, then this update will please you as they are available in each capture setting setting and mode as well as video.
If you’re planning on using your DxO One for fast action, then the addition of the expanded shutter speed range (to 1/20000 sec, up from 1/8000 sec), will appeal. Additional encouraging updates include a longer low-light exposure (30s) and the facility to capture video with full manual control of aperture, ISO, white balance and more.
One of the key highlights to this update is for the Apple Watch community. It will enable Apple Watch wearers to capture multiple photographs in quick succession as well as recording videos with their devices. The Apple Watch also acts as a trigger for activating the shutter and eliminates camera vibration for long exposure shooting.
