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 vision.
