IQ3 100MP Trichromatic

With Phase One’s latest digital back — the IQ3 Trichromatic – it all comes down to color…so much beautiful color! Phase One has worked closely with Sony to introduce new technology that takes digital color capabilities to a whole new level, rendering color in astonishing brilliance. It is capable of replicating, closer than ever, the color definition that the human eye sees. Using a new CMOS sensor and Bayer Filter color technology, you now have 101-megapixels of creative possibility in a new world of color definition.

But don’t think your color quality will come at any expense of your image quality. The IQ3 100MP Trichromatic takes the cake with the lowest and cleanest base ISO of any medium format CMOS sensor. The crisp, clean, and noise-free render of base ISO 35 creates results that expertly match your intended vision.

Feature Update #4 for the XF Camera System

The wait is over…your Phase One firmware update is here! This update emphasizes focus control and accuracy, as well as improvements to existing functionality based on customer feedback.

Features include:

Autofocus & Recompose: 3D sensors within the XF Camera System enable the new Auto Focus & Recompose mode, allowing you to focus on a subject and then recompose the frame while retaining the desired focus point. The XF Camera System uses a predictive algorithm, in tandem with audio feedback queues, to anticipate your movement and automatically adjust focus, letting you know you’ve got the shot.

Zoom to Focus: This feature connects with the new Autofocus & Recompose mode to provide a dynamic image preview option in your IQ back which automatically enlarges captured images to the point of focus.

Focus Trim Tool: This effortless automation tool trims your lenses and certifies any variations are accounted for. It can quickly trim each of your lenses to perfection, and the built-in analysis of the calibration conditions ensures everything is done with absolute confidence and is provided with a customized focus calibration target.

Automatic Focus Stack Calculator: By evaluating focusing distances, sensor resolution, and aperture, this new feature automatically suggests the number of frames that should be captured, ensuring superior image quality in the results.

Vibration Analysis: This new tool introduces a visual Vibration Analysis of physical forces recorded during the exposure. The visual feedback can help the remote user know if during the capture any external forces may have affected the result.

Profoto Remote Trigger: With a complete, built-in Profoto Air system, the XF Camera System provides integrated wireless control of your Profoto lights. You now have the ability to communicate with Profoto Air equipped lights using the Profoto Air Remote as a wireless remote radio trigger.
