Digital imaging company DxO unveiled a new camera on Thursday that plugs into the charging port of an iPhone and captures photos with a crispness and resolution that few smartphones can match.
At 20 megapixels, the DxO ONE packs more than twice the punch of the iPhone 6’s iSight camera. The pocket-sized dongle spans roughly the width of an iPhone and weighs only 3.8 ounces, and excels at capturing images under low light conditions, the company says.
“It’s possible to shoot crystal-clear images under moonlight, which is incredible for a camera this small,” said DxO CEO Jerome Meniere in a statement.
Of course, all of those pint-sized innovations come at a hefty price. The dongle will go on sale this September for $600, which may limit its appeal to hardcore photo enthusiasts with a penchant for moonshots.
