The compact DxO One camera that launched back in June of last year and to be tethered to a smartphone running the cameras companion application has today received both a price drop down to $499 or £399 if you are in the UK, and also a new update which has made it possible to use the camera without the need to tether it to a smartphone.
The new enhanced stand-alone experience allows the DxO ONE camera to be used on so providing a small yet fast way to capture footage without the hassle of a bulky video camera.
The version 1.3 update, available for free via the iTunes App Store, introduces several new features that further extend the use of the DxO ONE, including the ability to use the OLED display as a novel framing assistant to help quickly compose while operating the camera with one hand. Additionally, DxO has unbundled their desktop software from the package (DxO FilmPack and DxO OpticsPro now sold separately), enabling even more photographers to get their hands on the revolutionary DxO ONE camera at a new low price.
To quickly capture life’s fleeting moments, simply pull the DxO ONE out of your pocket or purse, and in one movement, slide the lens cover open, compose the scene using the OLED display as a framing assistant, then depress the two-stage physical shutter button to lock focus and grab the shot. In standalone mode, the DxO ONE provides a fun, retro-style of photographing without “chimping,” and makes browsing newly captured images a surprising and delightful experience.
