For the past week DxO has been sharing mysterious teasers on its New Shape of Photography website, announcing its new vision of photography will launch on June 18th.
It didn’t take too long, however, before the secret was revealed and the full specs of the upcoming camera were made available prior to the official release.
The camera, claiming to include the world’s most advanced image processing, can be used as a standalone camera or connect to an iPhone/iPad to offer a large interactive viewfinder and ‘other powerful DSLR features’.
While DxO’s desire to pour its extensive knowledge into creating its own camera is understandable, how will this move affect the credibility of the company’s sensor and lens ratings?
The DxO ONE strikes me as very interesting little camera, and while it doesn’t seem to offer any groundbreaking specs, it’s jam packed with great and good-enough features in one small package.
