The DxO ONE is a curious little device that’s received something of a mixed reception. On the one side you’ve got those who’ve tried it out, own it, use it and love. It’s a great addition to your phone to give you better quality and a few more options for your mobile photography. On the other side you’ve got the others saying “it’ll never be as good as DSLR anyway, so why bother?”
But, for those that do have it, you can now start working a fully Raw workflow with your iOS device. Utilising the new Raw image support built right into iOS10, the DxO ONE v2.1 iOS app update offers a one touch transfer of Raw files to the iOS photo library. From there, you can process or share directly from your phone.
The DxO ONE update also adds a few other enhancements. They’ve optimised the filesize and recording speed of Raw files, meaning your microSD card is going to last about 30% longer. Responsiveness has been improved with a faster boot up time and faster app startup.
It also adds a direct Wi-Fi connection providing full remote control over the DxO ONE in locations where no existing Wi-Fi network is available. The remote control feature can also utilise the Wi-Fi network the phone is already logged onto.
For DxO ONE users, the v2.1 update is completely free. You just need to go and download it from the Apple App Store. If you don’t yet own a DxO ONE, and the new Raw workflow and other features are making you consider it, they are available now for $499.
Do you have a DxO ONE? Is switching over to a Raw workflow right from your iOS device a big deal to you? Or do you do all your editing on the desktop and it doesn’t really matter? What do you love about the DxO ONE? What do you really dislike about it? Let us know in the comments.
