PARIS, Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DxO's recently-announced connected camera, the DxO ONE, has just been awarded the prestigious EISA Award for 2015-2016 in the category of "Best European Photo Innovation". The European Image and Sound Association, composed of over 15 of the biggest photography magazines throughout Europe, praised the design of DxO's first ever camera, as well as the company's ability to go beyond the conventional approach when creating a camera of this quality.
"The DxO ONE brings a new approach to mobile photography, with top quality images from a very portable device," the EISA Jury reports.
DxO announced the DxO ONE camera in June, adding an unprecedented player to the connected camera world. At only 2.65 inches tall, it boasts a 20.2 MP 1-inch sensor, 6-element aspherical lens with an adjustable aperture of f/1.8 - f/11, and a patent-pending, pivoting Lightning connector that leverages the iPhone's large screen and internet connectivity.
"Being awarded such a coveted photo and image prize in the profession is a tremendous recognition for DxO," said Jerome Meniere, CEO and founder of DxO. "Beyond our ambitions of pushing the limits of image quality and giving serious photographers the most successful tools for fully expressing their passion, we took it a step further by adding our technology and imaging solutions into our own camera."
DxO and other EISA Award winners will be honored at the annual awards ceremony on September 4th, 2015, at the IFA in Berlin. All Editors-in-Chief of EISA's member magazines and official representatives of winning companies will be present to receive award trophies at the start of Europe's largest and most respected technology show.
