The Phase One IQ4 System is the culmination of a long-term strategy to create the ultimate Camera + Digital Back + Lens system in the world. Read about the years-long planning Phase One took in creating this amazing piece of technology on our Phase One IQ4 Knowledge Center website.
In a previous article, we discussed how resolution is determined by both our digital back’s sensor and our lens. No matter how high our system’s megapixel count is, if we use poorly designed lenses, we’ll be wasting our time and money making soft images on systems that should be flawless. Here we test a set […]
Given that the Phase One IQ4 uses XQD and SD storage, whereas previous IQ backs used CF Cards, we thought our users would benefit from a run down of camera storage technology circa 2018. Why did Phase One choose XQD and SD? We can think of few topics more dull than storage card technology. […]
Whether you’re already familiar with BSI (Backside Illuminated) digital camera sensors or not, you will certainly be hearing more about them in the future. With significant advantages in light sensitivity, dynamic range, tech camera flexibility, and signal-to-noise ratio, it’s only been their higher manufacturing costs and greater manufacturing complexity that have prevented them from becoming […]
The Phase One IQ4 150mp has many headline features that are largely self-explanatory: 150mp full-frame 645 sensor with best-ever dynamic range, dual next-gen card slots, wireless tethering, etc. But among the more amorphous headlines is the marketing phrase “Infinity Platform” which means nothing, and everything at the same time. In this article we’ll dive into […]
We first wrote about the sensor-based Electronic Shutter (ES) when the IQ3 100mp added this feature in 2016. Since the IQ4 150mp improves the speed, features, and flexibility of the Electronic Shutter (ES) we thought we’d take another look at this incredibly powerful feature. A sensor-based Electronic Shutter (ES) option is available on the […]
Arguably more exciting than even the increase in megapixels, Phase One has integrated their industry-leading Capture One software into the IQ4 digital back. What does this allow you to do? Short answer—a lot. Read about both the obvious, and the not-so-obvious, capabilities this feature enables on our Phase One Knowledge Center website.
There are a wealth of new features in the IQ4, so we’ve taken the time to point out the 15 most surprising things about Phase One’s newest digital back. Read the full article on our Phase One IQ4 Knowledge Center website.
All the megapixels in the world don’t matter if the glass can’t hold up to the resolution. This article on our Phase One IQ4 Knowledge Center website explains how Phase One has been planning for high-resolution sensors for years, and made sure the lenses wouldn’t be left behind. Read it all here.
The IQ4 is here and we are taking it on the road! Come see us in cities across the country, from New York to Texas to California and back again, and test out Phase One’s brand new 150 Megapixel Digital Back and Infinity System. Get all your questions answered and demo the new product for […]
