The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
Phase One has announced a mono version of its 100MP IQ3 medium format camera back. The $50,000 camera has no color filter array or IR filter, so should produce higher levels of pixel sharpness as well as offering greater sensitivity. It can integrate with its IQ3 XF camera as well as being compatible with a range of other medium format cameras.
When it comes to the 'why?' question, Phase One talks about 'timeless expression' and suggests it will appeal to photographers engaged in 'fine art, landscape, portrait, and architecture to scientific applications'.
Removing the Bayer color filter array removes the slight blurring effect of demosaicing while also allowing around 1EV of extra light to reach the sensor.
Phenomenal Clarity in Black and White Photography
COPENHAGEN, May 10, 2017 – Phase One today announced the world’s first 101-megapixel achromatic digital back -- the IQ3 100MP Achromatic, featuring a new CMOS sensor design and state-of-the-art focus on classic black and white photography. With a top ISO of 51,200, it stands out as the most light sensitive medium format digital back available today, and its unmatched resolution offers photographers a new way to explore and express their visions without compromise.
“A black and white picture has the ability to transport the viewer into a different time and place. It essentially creates the illusion of a timeless experience …a simple black and white portrait can sum up all aspects of photography for me.” --Mark Seliger, Portrait Photographer
The IQ3 100MP Achromatic’s 101-megapixel sensor is produced without a Bayer color filter, allowing all available light to be captured unaltered and unobstructed. With no color information to be interpreted, the sensor is free to focus solely on capturing the highest level of detail, nuance and luminance.
"The IQ3 100MP Achromatic enables photographers to capture a timeless expression,” said Stefan Sandor, Vice President Marketing and Product Management. “The detail, tonality and image quality must be experienced first-hand, as seeing is not only believing, but truly inspirational.”
Produced without an Infrared (IR) cut-off filter, the IQ3 100MP Achromatic can capture light outside the visible spectrum, benefitting artistic and infrared applications. These powerful imaging abilities open new opportunities for a multitude of photographic disciplines, from fine art, landscape, portrait, and architecture to scientific applications.
The new achromatic CMOS sensor provides instant Live View feedback, and the sensor’s ability to see IR light allows the Live View to display light that is normally invisible to the naked eye. Capturing in purely black and white means that even at high ISO, the details produced have an analog-like smoothness, similar to film grains on a black and white film. The absence of color makes it possible to stretch the images to the extreme and at the same time retain the pure black and white image quality demanded by the world's best photographers.
The IQ3 100MP Achromatic Digital Back also provides an Electronic Shutter, long exposure of up to 60 minutes, HDMI output, WiFi capabilities, full IQ3 XF Camera System integration, and compatibility with other camera bodies, as is standard with all IQ3 Digital Backs.
The IQ3 100MP Achromatic Digital Back is available for order now through Phase One Partners: www.phaseone.com/partners Contact your local Phase One Partner to arrange a demo.
The IQ3 100MP Achromatic is available for purchase now in a limited number. Shipping will begin in early August.
