DxO today announced a new "dramatically enhanced stand-alone experience" for its DxO ONE camera, granting users the ability to take pictures with the miniaturized device without needing to tether it to their smartphone. The DxO ONE's OLED display helps its users line up a shot, which they can then capture easily thanks to the on-board two-stage shutter button.

The connected app allows for full customization of the camera's various settings like aperture, shutter speed, ISO, metering, and white balance. When using stand-alone mode, the DxO ONE remembers the most recent settings of the app and preserves them in the pictures taken without a smartphone. As the company explains in its press release, "For example, if you prefer to capture portraits at f/1.8, the camera will always be ready at f/1.8 when you pull it out of your pocket."

In addition to the stand-alone experience, the new DxO update brings a couple of other features to the camera:

Version 1.3 also introduces a host of other features including motion blur alert, and an elegant new way to dial in white balance, metering and focus modes, which can also be viewed as overlays in the viewfinder along with your iPhone battery level. Browsing photos is faster than ever, with the gallery now sorted in the same order as in iOS Photos.

You can be sure your images were successfully shared thanks to a new visual confirmation message, and you can set a preferred JPEG compression level for photos, and bitrate for videos. Of note, an innovative Message Center now provides a direct connection to DxO, with in-app access to current information designed to help you get the most out of your DxO ONE.

The company has also unbundled DxO FilmPack and DxO OpticsPro from the package, two pieces of software that gives users a more in-depth dive into picture editing, and will sell them separately. The removal of the software has dropped the price of the DxO One by $100, so those interested can buy the camera for $499 from the company's online store.

The DxO ONE app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

For those of you who are interested in seeing a comparison, Philip Bloom did one with his iPhone 6S Plus. Impressive results.

This is amazing! A camera that can take pictures without your smartphone? And it simply requires a smartphone to adjust the settings? Wow! /sarcasm

Seriously, what am I missing about this product? Someone above shared screen shots, and since I don't know which image came from the device all I know for certain is that I'm not the target market. So, who is?

DxO should stick to what they do best: Catering to pixel peekers everywhere with their camera and lens testing benchmarks. If I remember right, doesn't this thing have the same sensor as the Sony RX100II? You can pickup that whole camera for $498—often times cheaper with sales. I got up the original RX100 for $300 during an after Christmas sale in early 2014 as a way for my wife to snap quality photos (that I could edit in RAW) of our then soon to be born child. Heck of a camera in a small package. If you have to carry both around separately in your pocket, why buy this? The RX100II also supports sending photos to your phone over WiFi.

For me, this thing is a non-starter at $499. It would have to be around $199, and that's if I didn't already have the RX100.
