Phase One adds the IQ3 100MP back to its A-series system
Danish camera manufacturer Phase One has expanded its range of A-Series offerings to include the new 100MP IQ3 digital back. The A-Series kits consist of an Alpa 12TC camera body with one of three lenses and a choice of IQ3 backs in 50-, 60-, 80- and 100-million-pixel resolutions. The A-Series is particularly interesting as the cameras have no mirror, so vibrations are kept to a minimum at the time of exposure.
Images have to be composed on the rear touchscreen using the 30 fps live view feature, though the Wi-Fi functionality of the back allows connection to Apple iPod and iPhone devices via the Capture Pilot app for remote viewing, control and capture. The IQ3 backs also offer USB 3 and HDMI ports for tethered shooting to a computer running the Capture One Pro 9 software application, or for streaming live view content to a TV or field monitor.
Each lens is calibrated with the body in the factory, so there should be no need for users to create custom color correction profiles themselves. The calibrations are stored in the IQ3 back, and users just have to select the matching menu item when changing lenses.
The IQ3 100MP back in the kits is the standard model, and can also be used with the Phase One XF DSLR camera.
The kits come with the Rodenstock ALPAR F4.0 35mm, but an ultra-wide Alpagon 23mm F5.6 and a 'standard' Alpagon 70mm F5.6 are also available. The A-series IQ3 100MP system is available now, and is priced at $56,000 with the 35mm lens. It comes with a 5-year warranty and personalized 24/7 support.
