DxO Updates iOS App With Advanced Time-Lapse Features, Launches New Battery Pack Accessory

DxO today announced a new update for its DxO One iPhone-connected camera accessory, introducing a new time-lapse option with exclusive "Auto Ramping" technology and multi-camera Facebook Live capabilities. There are also a few new accessories that were revealed today, including an external Battery Pack, Cable Back Door, and Tilt Stand. The version 3.0 update to the DxO One iOS app streamlines the app's creation of time-lapse videos, and includes the company's "Auto Ramping" technology, which avoids flicker effects by providing consistent exposure and white balance across all images. When users start a time-lapse shot, the iPhone can be used normally while the camera continues to take pictures. For Facebook Live, DxO One users will be able to instantly create a live video stream through the DxO iOS app. With a new multi-camera mode, the app leverages both the DxO One itself and both iPhone cameras to give users the ability to experiment with their photography and capture photos that can't be taken with just an iPhone. This area of the app provides a mini control panel so users can preview all three camera views to compose shots, adjust lighting, and generally prepare for a live broadcast. The control panel also allows for easy jumping between camera viewpoints, and users can switch sound recording to come from the DxO One or the iPhone's built-in microphone. “While smartphones have made significant progress in terms of image quality, they don’t come close to the photos and videos a real camera like the DxO ONE can offer. Most importantly, you have to hold

DxO ONE Gaining Improved Wi-Fi Connectivity and Waterproof 'Outdoor Shell'

After introducing a standalone mode for the DxO ONE Smartphone Camera earlier in the year, the camera manufacturer today announced an update to its DxO ONE lineup that'll bring waterproofing to the accessory, as well as an all-new Wi-Fi remote control. The latter feature will be available to all DxO ONE users through a 2.0 software update coming to the connected iOS app [Direct Link], while the former will manifest as a separate hardware accessory available for any existing DxO ONE. The Wi-Fi remote control will streamline the Wi-Fi setup process on the accessory thanks to a Lightning adapter connection that allows an iOS device to "seamlessly pass its Wi-Fi authentication credentials from the iPhone to the DxO ONE." The enhanced communication between the camera and the iPhone allows for users to retain control over every setting in the DxO ONE without needing to return to the smartphone, along with "the ability to easily view, edit and share their content to social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube." “Last year, we revolutionized mobile photography by packing DSLR-quality into a camera design so incredibly small that it could always be available in our pocket,” said DxO CEO and founder, Jérôme Ménière. “And now, thanks to WiFi Remote Control and our new accessories ecosystem, all our users can take the DxO ONE with them absolutely anywhere, without restrictions, and extend their creativity even further.” In addition to the Wi-Fi upgrade, the 2.0 update will introduce an automatic lighting feature called Mobile Smart Lighting, battery management

DxO ONE Smartphone Camera Adds Stand-Alone Mode, Cuts Base Price $100

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
