Full Frame Medium Format
We’ve always strived to offer our customers the ultimate photographic flexibility. We were the first to offer Full Frame Medium Format CCD systems and we’re proud to be the first to offer a Full Frame Medium Format CMOS solution. The Phase One XF 100MP Camera System offers the same great advantages of full frame usability with the added benefits of CMOS technology.
16 bit analogue feel
For quite some time Digital Photography has surpassed analogue film in terms of resolution, ISO and Dynamic Range, but often at the sacrifice of one feature for another. Manufactures and engineers continue to strive towards reproducing the textures and tonal feel inherent to analogue photography while maintaining all possible benefits of digital photography. At Phase One this pursuit has always been central to what defines ultimate image quality. With 16-bit Color Depth, coupled with CMOS ISO flexibility, the XF 100MP delivers a natural texture and tonal feel never before seen in digital camera system.
15 stop dynamic range
The Phase One XF 100MP Camera System delivers a remarkable 15 stops of dynamic range, retaining breathtaking detail in both highlights and shadows. This is the highest performing system in terms of dynamic range that the Medium Format world has to offer. The Phase One XF 100MP Camera System is engineered to provide the detail and unmatched quality, essential for the world’s most demanding photographers.
50 - 12800 ISO
By combining new sensor technology and years of experience in noise suppression through Capture One Pro software, the Phase One XF 100MP delivers creative freedom and performance in all shooting conditions. With a previously unthinkable base ISO of 50, the Phase One XF 100MP delivers the flexibility of longer exposures and unrestricted use of fast lenses, all while providing the cleanest possible results.
The XF 100MP System delivers extreme long exposures of up to 60 minutes in full 101-megapixel resolution. The IQ3 100MP is yet again the first of its kind to offer such flexibility in a creative tool. With no compromise in ISO flexibility and exposure limitation, all available on a full frame CMOS sensor, the possibilities for top photographers are endless.
An industry first for Medium Format, we’re introducing the most technically advanced, versatile and dynamic feature yet, complete Electronic Shutter integration. Now, with the IQ3 100MP on either the XF Camera System or an alternative technical camera, you can capture images without a single moving component. With the new rolling shutter technology of the IQ3 100MP, you have complete control directly from the digital back. The Electronic Shutter not only provides advantages for a number of capture scenarios but it extends the control and workflow possibilities for Live View, Black Reference integration and technical camera applications.
Joint sensor development and optimization
Phase One and Sony have been development partners for years, the 50MP sensor found in the XF IQ3 50MP, being the first milestone of our cooperation, Creating the full frame sibling to the IQ3 50MP has been a top priority of Phase One for years. We’re proud to deliver a solution that achieves the image quality requirements Phase One customers expect, all while providing the performance advantages inherent to 100MP CMOS sensor technology.
