Phase One’s IQ4 Digital Back Takes Imagery to Another Level

Phase One has been the pinnacle of high resolution professional imaging for years and it doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon with their IQ4 digital back. This is packed with features that will allow you to create with complete confidence, whether it’s in the high resolution files or the customizable features having the important settings easily accessible.

Uncompromised image quality

The XF Camera System delivers uncompromised image quality thanks to quality Schneider Kreuznach optics and high resolution full frame medium format sensors.

Phase One’s full frame medium format sensors, 1.5x the size of crop sensor mirrorless medium format, allow you to capture more data, providing more detail and impressive results so that you can achieve your creative vision straight out of the camera. With the expanded output flexibility provided by the high resolution and up to 15 stops of dynamic range, your workflow options grow exponentially.

Customizable workflow

The XF Camera System allows for a completely customized workflow, ensuring the camera is an integral, unencumbered extension to your creative process.

When used with the IQ4, flexible tethering, storage and power management options ensure that your work is both efficient and reliable. And on the XF itself, you are able to further customize the camera to suit your way of working by assigning actions to buttons and dials on the camera so that your most-used tools are right at your fingertips. The option to save up to 3 custom presets, so that you can easily switch to suit specific capture requirements, further lends itself to the needs of the working professional. These presets can be loaded into any XF Camera System effortlessly.

Built-in flash control

The XF Camera System enables full control of your Profoto Air flash system directly from the camera. Control, fire and access up to 6 groups of Profoto lights. Use the Profoto AirTTL flash metering to achieve consistent results.

Additional tools available on the XF allow you to review flash duration, output power and flash sync timing with a simple visual representation directly after the capture.

Automated sequencing tools

The Time-Lapse tool helps automate the process of capturing a time-lapse, from calculation to capture, ensuring a smooth and optimized workflow.

The HDR tool captures the specified bracketed frames to improve the dynamic range. The individual captures are stored as a sequence for simple post-processing in Capture One.

Exposure Calculator
The Exposure Calculator tool allows you to extrapolate shutter speeds for long exposures from shorter, equivalent exposure values. This is a useful aid for shortening test exposures, for example, when calculating exposure settings with long exposures at night or when using Neutral Density (ND) filters.

The IQ4 adds additional automated sequencing tools, which are available whether your IQ4 Digital Back is attached to an XF, XT or third party camera body.
