This week Phase One has announced the launch of the ‘world’s first CMOS-based digital camera back’ in the form of the new Phase One IQ250, which features a 50 megapixel CMOS sensor that measures 44 x 33 mm in size.
The Phase One IQ250 has been created to provide photographers with the widest ISO range of any medium format camera system ranging from 100 to 6400 and also offers 14 stops of dynamic range and 14 bit colour depth to expand their creativity.
Other features of the Phase One IQ250 include a high-resolution 1.15MP 3.2″ touchscreen on the rear for live view, playback and access to menus to tweak settings when required. As well as an integrated Wi-Fi for connection which allows users to connect to an iPad or iPhone when required.
The press release reads:
“Award-winning Australian wedding photographer Dan O’Day has found the IQ250’s abundant dynamic range to be a game changer. He said, “I shoot the majority of my work on location, and I prefer to shoot only using available light. With the IQ250, I can shoot portraits of couples any time of day, under just about any conditions Mother Nature offers me, and still retain all the details. Couples rely on me to capture one of the happiest moments in their life, and they expect the outcome to be perfect. With the IQ250 I can deliver on this expectation with greater confidence, quality and detail than ever before.”
