The new IQ2 series offers high-speed wireless connectivity as well as 13 f-stops of dynamic range, says Phase One, which presented for the first time the new full-frame 645 format digital camera backs at the Focus-on-Imaging trade show in Birmingham, UK.
Three versions of the new backs will be available: the IQ280, which uses a 80-megapixel sensor, the IQ260, which offers exposures of 1/10,000s up to one hour, and the IQ260 Achromatic, which was "designed to deliver the highest-quality pure black and white images," says Phase One.
All three sensors have been developed by Phase One in collaboration with Teledyne Dalsa. The IQ280 model also sport wifi connectivity to enable "remote image capture and viewing of huge 80-megapixel images on an iPad running Phase One's Capture Pilot app," claims the Copenhagen-based manufacturer.
The IQ260 Achromatic uses a sensor with no colour filter array mounted, which means that "each and every pixel of the sensor is focused purely on capturing the finest details of an image," adds Phase One. "This digital back comes with no mounted IR cut-off filter, and the IQ260 Achromatic is capable of capturing image in three light spectrums: infrared, visible and ultraviolet - permitting photographers to experiment with a wide range of their choice of filters to create unique images for artistic and scientific purposes."
The IQ260 and IQ260 Achromatic also offer wifi connectivity.
The new IQ2 series will be available from June at prices starting from €29,990.
