The DxO ONE wants to turn your iPhone 6 into a DSLR camera (RAW support included)

The DxO ONE wants to turn your iPhone 6 into a powerful camera (RAW support included)
The rear camera that Apple made for the iPhone 6 is one of the best out there (when it comes to smartphone cameras, of course), but obviously has its limits. To overcome some of these limits, French company DxO is launching a camera accessory that can be paired via a Lightning connector in order to bring "DSLR image quality" to your iPhone.

Called DxO ONE, the new camera is 6.9 cm tall, weighs 108 grams, and features a 1-inch 20.2MP CMOS BSI sensor with f/1.8 aperture. Using a dedicated iOS app (free to download), users can manually adjust the camera's aperture (from f/1.8 to f/11), ISO (from 100 to an impressive 51,200), and shutter speed (from 15s to 1/8000s). The DxO ONE shoots in JPG, but also automatically keeps RAW files, and it even has a SuperRAW mode (which combines 4 regular RAW images) for the "ultimate in noise-free image quality." The new camera can record video, too: 1080p at 30fps, or 720p at 120fps.

As you'd imagine, all this comes at a price. The DxO ONE costs $599, and, at the moment, it's available to pre-order only in the US, where it should start shipping in September. You can see some sample images from the DxO ONE camera in the slideshow below. Unfortunately, DxO didn't provide full resolution samples, so for now we can't properly judge their quality.
