Phase One XF IQ3 100MP Achromatic


Available for Pre-Order

Quick Overview:

Unfiltered Detail

The IQ3 100MP Achromatic is designed as a complete achromatic system,
built from the ground up using a new dedicated CMOS sensor produced
without the Bayer color filter, allowing light to reach the sensor
unobstructed. Without the filter, each and every pixel of the sensor captures
significantly more light, ensuring absolute detail and luminance.

The IQ3 100MP Achromatic can capture much more than the naked eye is
able to see, as it is designed to capture a broader spectrum of light. With
the option to also capture light outside the visible spectrum, creative
possibilities for infrared applications are endless, making the IQ3 100MP
Achromatic the most light-sensitive 101-megapixel digital system available.

More Light Makes for Better Images

The more light you have available, the better your image can be. The depth,
the tonality, the detail – with more light comes more quality. This is one of
many factors that sets larger formats apart from the common, smaller
formats. Other systems require a lower ISO to achieve the same quality
results the IQ3 100MP Achromatic provides at ISO 200. This means the IQ3
100MP Achromatic creates much less noise at any given ISO than
comparable color systems.

ISO Flexibility

The ISO performance of the IQ3 100MP Achromatic is unparalleled.
Reaching ISO 51,200 the Achromatic back provides increased flexibility
without introducing color noise artifacts.

Live View

Serving a critical role in the workflow of the professional photographer, Live
View provides instant feedback to confirm composition, focus, and overall
accuracy. Live View adds even more value when capturing infrared light,
since it displays light that cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Electronic Shutter

The Electronic Shutter provides further flexibility and allows you to use any
camera you prefer. Be it a custom camera, a view camera, or something as
simple as a pinhole camera; the Electronic Shutter can provide full shutter
control and operation directly from the back, all with no moving parts. It's
the perfect addition to a digital back designed to embrace your artistic
