Power in the Palm of Your Hand
The DxO ONE is an incredibly powerful camera for such a small form factor. For me, I love the fact that I can keep the DxO ONE in my pocket next my phone at all times for capturing and editing my compositions. So why does a professional photographer need a camera like this?
As you may know, I primarily shoot all of my photography with Sony Alpha E-Mount mirrorless bodies. While the E-mount mirrorless bodies are among the best form factors for APS-C and Full-Frame cameras, they still have some size and heft to them. Those form factors are dwarfs compared to Canon and Nikon; nonetheless, you can’t put a full-frame E-Mount and lens into your pocket. This is where the DxO ONE shines through for my needs.
Internally, the DxO ONE sensor is the same Sony sensor found in the RX100 series point-and-shoot cameras. So I don’t feel like my brand loyalty has drifted too far. However, the DxO uses that sensor in a new body that gives it a lightness of being and powerful imaging.
