Phase IQ3 Series Digital Backs

The Phase One IQ3 Series Digital Backs are the latest generation of unique Phase One technology. Available in either 50, 80 and 100 megapixels variants, all models provide up to 1 hour noise free exposure times.

The IQ3 80 megapixel model sports a full frame 645 format CCD DALSA chip, while the IQ3 100 megapixel backs all house a full frame CMOS chip for high ISO capabilities.  IQ3 50 contains a smaller high ISO CMOS chip with a 1.3 lens factor for a faster shot rate performance.

Phase One IQ3 series units with the new modular Phase One XF camera body are available at Specular in Melbourne now.

The IQ3 100MP Trichromatic has achieved the next level of colour capability by mimicking the colour vision of the human eye, enabling the artist to express their vision more directly than ever before in 101-megapixel detail.

To do this Phase One have collaborated with Sony to introduce new on-sensor technology that creates a more pure recording of the colour in the scene. This new technology is available exclusively through Phase One. Another feature of the sensor is the ability to shoot at ISO 35 for the most noise-free capture possible, making the highest performing digital back for photographers who accept no compromise.

The IQ3 100MP Trichromatic is available now at Specular, contact us to demo this new technology in person.
