kimsch: The two owners are probably happy with this update...

@Angular, it's quite simple criteria really - it's the camera I find myself reaching for every time when I walk out the door. The IQ is so good I've never found myself wishing I had brought a bigger-sensor camera instead.

Bigger bulkier cameras may have slightly better image quality, but if they are sitting idle not actually taking any photos they can't possibly compete in terms of being my best camera.

Likewise, mediocre image quality like a phone's inbuilt small-sensor camera or a clumsy user nterface doesn't make me want to take photos either.

For the record, my previous best camera was the Ricoh GR Digital III.

Photoman: To describe this camera in the famous words of Dennis Hopper..."but why?"

Holding the phone with one hand and tapping the screen with your other index finger just like with the inbuilt camera app or any other app is not any different to normal phone use.

You must be incorrectly imagining that it's heavy enough to require a second hand just to suppport it.

Zozi: I own it and LOVE it... guess I am one of the two happy owners!
Thrilled that they keep making improvements.
Smallest form factor I know that shoots raw (doesn't need to be connected to phone).
Photo quality excellent IMO.
Different strokes for different folks!

Me too, so I guess that makes me the second one.

Nice of DxO to put all the effort into the continual iOS improvements and feature add-ons just for two owners!

If you have to ask why, then it's not for you. You're just not the market for it.

Whereas I was asking why has it taken so long. And why was it left to a non-camera company like DxO to finally do it? Like Thom Hogan, I've been waiting for something like this from Nikon since 2007, but they clearly lack the foresight, even in hindsight.

Best camera I've ever owned. I feel sorry for you.

parcheesi: I like mine. It's super portable and renders stunning jpegs. The update with the framing assist makes it even more useful. There are some usability quirks, but overall I'm happy with it and especially like to carry it as a travel camera. Haters may hate, but it doesn't diminish my joy.

Hear, hear.

Mike FL: From the REAL users:

"This was a joke. We purchased the item and it kept freezing every time we connected it to the phone and the only way to turn it back on was to press the small reset button. The camera would again work for 2-3 images and freeze again...

DxO has a 30 day refund policy and due to the fact that I never used the camera when it arrived and took the camera with me when travelling assuming it works, by the time I returned (and was not able to use the camera during our vacation) the 30 days was over."

"The device froze right out of the box, just after I plugged it in my iPhone, and it got very warm. I couldn't find a way to reset it or shut it off. The battery finally drained after a couple of hours. I'll try this again once fully charged, but if I still have some problems, it's going back."

Wat a joke.

Obelix, I had already stated in a previous comment that I was very happy with my purchase so there was absolutely no need for you to ask me again in the form of an accusatory question to try and impugn me.

I am absolutely totally sick and tired of being forced to defend my camera choice to trolls.

I've been through this before. Look back several years in my posting history to see this is deja vu all over again now exactly the same thing with EVERY SINGLE Ricoh GXR review and article not just here on DPR but ON THE ENTIRE FREAKING INTERNET being flooded by trolls who had never even touched the camera but were on a mission to hate on it.

Even just mentioning the GXR now I fully expect a troll response dissing it all these years later from someone who's never even touched one.

Seriously, there were trolls here when this DxO ONE was launched saying it was made of cheap plastic. Just proves they are just full of manure, so you're questioniong the motives of the wrong person.

Wat a joke.

I'm absolutely astonished at the trolls always claiming conspiracy theories when users happy with their purchase counteract their trolling, or if DPR happens to give the object of their derision a good review.

So not only am I now being asked if I was bribed, I'm also being accused of not being a real person?? If you ask me, these questions need to be asked of those who don't own the camera but appear to be on a mission to convince others to not to buy it. Why would anyone even bother to do that, if not paid to?

I sold my RX100 to buy the DxO ONE. Never liked the RX100. Love the DxO ONE.
Couldn't wait to get rid of the RX100. Can't wait to upgrade the DxO ONE with wide angle and macro adapters.

Trolls keep posting "fools should buy an RX100 instead, ha ha ha". In my case (as well as David Zamora it seems), I have done the exact opposite to this and am very happy so any such 'advice' just comes across as totally clueless trolling.

Big phone sticking out to reach the camera's full potential?

How about a dual-core 2.25GHz A9X iPad Pro with quad-core graphics and M9 motion coprocessor with 12.9" 264ppi Retina display.

'Big' phone, pah. ;)

bluevaping: Too bad this camera is gear toward RAW shooters and using DXO mark software. The die hard RAW fan and phone camera only crowd. I had with me just didn't feel like processing RAW, just shot JPG with my phone.... Just a hardware gimmick for software.

I use Aperture.

It's nice they give it to you for free with the camera, but there's no law saying you have to use DxO Optics Pro with the DxO ONE.

Wat a joke.

Real user here. Works perfectly for me. It's even getting better with more new features with every update.

I had it freeze on me twice back in the beginning, but that's been fixed with an update because it's never happened again.

I don't understand why you are hating so much on something you've never owned. If it's not the camera for you, fine, but why are you on such a mission to convince other people it's not for them either?

Seriously, why put so much effort into taking the time to copy and paste cherry-picked negative reviews by people you don't know on Amazon about a camera you've never even used, and ignore all the positive reviews? And why only provide a link to the 1 star reviews when there are four times as many 5 star reviews?

Haven't you got anything better to do? I sure do have better things to do than always being aggravated into defending my camera against an army of trolls on every article, when I'd much rather be discussing the firmware update and new features.

Actually that's not entirely accurate because the nerve you hit isn't about the camera, more about being a goading annoyance. So more like:

Getting people to react to your goading is the objective of trolling, so you have every right to feel smug about yourself. Job done. You got me too, twice now.

fmian: Just in case you didn't buy one when they first came out, this update will remind you that you made the correct decision..

I use it almost exclusively standalone as per in the photo of the mountain-climber above. It's the most practical and easiest camera to hold and use I've ever owned. Except I don't hold it like they do in that image with my fingertips.

I grip it either like a small aerosol can or airbrush and and use my index finger to press the shutter release, or hold it like a remote-control and use my thumb. Mostly the latter.

I notice the only negatives about this camera are from those who have never even touched one. I'm extremely happy with mine. Even with the expected price drop I'm still happy as I believe I've already gotten more than that value out of it, and will continue to do so.

I'm especially looking forward to possible macro and wide-angle adapters for it so I'm not interested in the new DLs and won't be needing my Nikon 1 system either or DSLRs any more. This camera plus a fullframe system (mirrorless or DSLR) would be the complete package.

ZJ24: "The report says that the introduction of 8K video in cameras will eliminate the boundary between videos and stills."

I guess those writing the report haven't shot at 1/8000 of a second (or even 1/500 of a second and above) too often.

@ZJ24, surely it's just 24 frames per second each at 1/10,000.

The other way is the difficult one, shooting with slower shutter speeds than actual frames, ie 1/24.

The Canon XL1s could shoot at 1/8 (maybe something to do with having 3 separate sensors) which resulted in a cool ghost-like blurred video you could use for dream or hallucinogen sequences or distorting spacetime.

Aroart: People should get a life and stop complaining....This devise is meant for up grading your iPhones camera and getting better image quality so you can share rapidly to social media....stop comparing it to any other camera unless it can be able to upload straight to the Web hassle free. ...

I'm sorry Richard, but have you actually used one? I do own one so when I read a comment like yours I can't help but know that you've never even held let alone used one. So I wonder what exactly your motivation is to try and sway others against this camera.

Contrary to your opinion, the reality is it's my #1 go-to camera now. It's just that small and ultra-convenient you can, and will want to, take it everywhere.

Pound for penny in terms of amount of use/photos I'm getting out of it for the price paid, it's the best-value and most-used camera I've bought since the Ricoh GRD III.

@shleed, I'm afraid you're going to have to name a specific mirrorless camera 50% smaller than the Sony RX100 in order to even come close to matching the DxO ONE. Even fixed lens compact. There isn't one.

It's literally the IQ of the RX100 III in a matchbox. Nothing else on the market even comes close to it at this point in time.
