Enthusiastic photography fans out there will more than likely be familiar with the majority of the available options in terms of equipment. Such is the passion around photography that anyone with a more than a keen interest in the hobby will spend a great deal of time researching and purchasing the perfect camera, tripod, and even accessories and carry cases to make the process as enjoyable as possible. With that said, anyone with an interest in mobile photography will likely be familiar with the excellent DxO ONE Digital Connected Camera for iPhone and iPad, which for limited time is now available for just $379.99 down from its original price of $600.
The DxO ONE is essentially a really excellent little piece of kit which exists to extend the camera capabilities that Apple has bundled into the iPhone and iPad. Apple’s smartphone and tablet devices are actually already perfectly capable photography devices, but the DxO ONE looks to improve that by bringing DSLR quality into the mix. Of course, having the DxO Labs name assigned to a product generally means that it will not only be a quality device, but that it will likely come with a premium price-tag. That however, stands changed for now with the unit’s price being slashed by a massive 37%.
After initially being listed for a whopping $599.99, it is now being offered at a reduced sale price of just $379.99. That represents a total monetary saving of $219. For that financial outlay you will get a single DxO ONE accessory that connects to a compatible iPhone or iPad via Apple’s proprietary Lightning port on the bottom of the device. There’s also an accompanying mobile app that enhances the overall experience. When connected, the ONE utilizes iPhone’s display of the connected iOS device as a view finder, and uses its 1-inch, 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with backside illumination lens to capture those stunning images.
The DxO ONE also sports a premium feel thanks to the aluminum manufacturing. It also carries a 60-degree swivel capability in order to offer the best possible flexibility and product longevity. Let’s face it, for those who were willing to part with $599.99 (or the discounted $379.99) for what is essentially an iPhone accessory – albeit a very, very capable one – you’d expect it to be of the highest quality.
As always, it’s worth acting quickly if you’re interested in the saving as the deal won’t last for long.
