Learning a new camera

My new "little" camera is a French- made DxO One, replacing my venerable little Canon. Pardon me while I wander into camera geekdom: the DxO One is a miniaturized pro- quality camera that shoots RAW, JPG and "Super RAW." It weighs 3.8 ounces, is just under three inches tall and, according to the manufacturer, the lens is made "with six aspherical elements, offering an exceptionally high level of precision while also optimizing acutance."

What makes the DxO unique is that it has a built-in Lightning connector that plugs into an iPhone. The iPhone becomes the viewfinder, focus tool, setting adjuster and flash for the DxO. Click on one of the links in this blurb for more about the camera.

The very best thing about the DxO is its size and portability: Chase Jarvis said it, "The best camera is the one you have with you."

As with all new toys, there is a learning curve. In this case it is fairly steep because the DxO is radically different than any other camera I have used.

 

The learning curve:
