The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are seen as two of the best camera phones in the world, but one company has figured out how to significantly improve their already-impressive photo experiences. A tiny device that works with the phone’s Lightning port can deliver even better pictures and videos, though you’ll have to be ready to shell out quite a bit of cash to get it.

The tiny DxO One accessory will cost $600 this September when it launches, Gizmodo reports, which is almost as much as a brand new entry-level iPhone 6 without a contract. The One is a standalone camera that packs a 20-megapixel 32mm f/1.8 lens and fits in your pocket.

When connected to the iPhone via the built-in Lighting port, the camera can be used instead of the phone’s default rear or front camera for pictures (selfies included) and video recording.

The camera has a max 1/8000 shutter speed, a physical shutter, and can pivot 60 degrees in any direction, giving users ample range for shots. The One can also be used as a standalone device, as long as users settle for auto mode. However, when connected to the iPhone, the camera offers users full manual controls, something pro photographers will surely appreciate.

The One transfers pictures automatically to the iPhone (JPG files), while RAW files are stored on its microSD slot.
