The clean lines, meticulous exterior, and robust design of the IQ1 Digital Backs are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our commitment to quality. The technology within Phase One’s digital backs has been painstakingly refined over the years to ensure the features within the back directly contribute to the success and quality of your final vision.
100MP, 80MP and 50MP
From 100 to 50 megapixels, there is a sensor size, technology and resolution to fit your requirements. The IQ1 Digital Backs provide Full Frame 645 imaging sensors in the IQ1 100MP and 80MP Digital Backs, and CMOS sensor technology in the IQ1 100MP and 50MP. As each sensor and resolution brings with it unique advantages and features, the IQ1 range of Digital Backs support a solution for any artist.
16 Bit Resolution
Regardless of what sensor technology is used in IQ1 Digital Backs, 16 bit color depth has had a long-standing tradition at Phase One as a benchmark of quality. Most current digital cameras provide 12 or 14 bit color depth in their RAW files. Phase One strives for excellence in providing the absolute best in terms of image quality, and maintaining 16 bit RAW files is a key element to that commitment. In order to ensure your images deliver the best quality, the IQ1 100MP and 80MP will provide seemingly endless tonality and the most accurate color render available.
Touch Screen Control
With an effortless workflow among many essential objectives in the design of a Phase One Digital Back, touch screen control was long-ago adopted as an intuitive interface, which allows the artist to concentrate on their craft. The large touch screen on the IQ1 Digital Back makes menu navigation instinctive and smooth. Whether you're controlling an XF Camera System from the digital back's touch screen Camera Control tool, browsing images in the Play Menu or customizing the digital back's operational settings, the IQ1 touch screen makes for a seamless and frustration-free experience.
Live View Convenience
With the adaptability of Phase One digital backs, the options for use are seemingly unlimited. With the IQ1 digital backs, LiveView makes it simple to preview the image before it’s captured, verifying focus and composition no matter what camera you’re using. The CMOS sensor technology in the IQ1 100MP and IQ1 50MP provides real-time feedback for fast and efficient verification of all the elements. The LiveView feature, available on all IQ1 Digital Backs proves an irreplaceable asset to the photographic process, whether you're using an integrated camera system or a customized imaging solution.
With a priority and dedication to image quality, Phase One has pioneered its own RAW file compression in the IIQ format to ensure every possible bit of data is properly maintained and delivered in the final file. The IIQ RAW file format is proprietary to Phase One, and was designed by the same engineers that built the digital backs. With Capture One Pro software optimized to extract the IIQ image quality and optimize workflow speeds, the experience of capturing with a Phase One Digital Back and editing images in Capture One software is nothing short of breathtaking.
With all of the complexity and technical expertise that exists within a Phase One digital back, the process of using one remains efficient and easy. With the straightforward design, intuitive touch screen and customizable options, IQ1 Digital Backs are a perfect fit for any application. Coupled with the robust feature set and speed of Capture One Pro, the options available promise a workflow tailored to meet your specific needs.
