DxO Camera Updated with Pro Quality Solution for Facebook Live


DxO, pioneer in digital imaging technologies, announces a major free update to its award-winning DxO ONE pro-quality miniaturized and connected camera for iPhone that will take Facebook Live broadcasting to new heights. The DxO ONE camera iOS app version 2.5 will introduce the world’s first pro-level multi-camera solution for Facebook Live, enabling users to take full advantage of the DxO ONE’s remarkably compact design, outstanding image quality, and integrated internet connectivity while broadcasting to their followers. Available to all DxO ONE users free of charge, the update is expected to be available in early 2017 via the iTunes App Store.

With the update, the DxO ONE app will embrace Facebook Live, providing the ability to quickly and easily create a live stream with only a few taps of the app. When combined with full Wi-Fi remote control, the DxO ONE will operate as a remote broadcast camera, giving users the ability to experiment with camera compositions and placements that are impossible to achieve with the iPhone’s built-in cameras alone. The DxO ONE’s large image sensor and fast lens combine to provide a shallow depth-of-field and natural looking bokeh that lets users live stream with a level of quality that is breathtakingly cinematic.

The DxO ONE Facebook Live solution provides a sophisticated set of controls, including an elegant multi-camera source panel, that lets you preview all three camera views at once­—DxO ONE, iPhone front and back—so you can recompose the shot, adjust the lighting, or prepare your subject before going live with any camera view. You become the technical director, as you seamlessly cut between each of the three cameras on-the-fly with a quick tap. Your audio feed can be sourced from the DxO ONE’s internal microphone, the iPhone’s microphone, or set to automatically switch between the two as you cut between cameras. And of course, the DxO ONE app will allow you to name your Live stream and let you connect with the people who care most, whether it’s a select group of personal friends, or your fans worldwide.

“Because it’s so incredibly compact, the DxO ONE has been my go-to camera for pro-quality video whenever and wherever I need it most,” said Nathan Yamniak, Film Director. “Now with the addition of a multi-camera broadcast control panel, and deep support for Facebook Live, it has become for me and my clients the ultimate pro-quality live broadcasting solution.”

DxO ONE 2.1 update integrates full RAW processing workflow in an iPhone environment

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.

DxO to Update One App Software Bringing Apple Watch Support and More


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.

The DxO One retails for $600/£449 and you can purchase it here.

DxO introduces revolutionary DSLR-quality camera that attaches directly to the iPhone®


This is interesting, I’ve known about it for a little while as I’m fortunate to have some ‘connections’ (my husband is one of the technical consultants) for DxO; a world leader in digital imaging technologies. They have 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 aluminum, 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 camera’s 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. “It’s 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.”
