Phase One IQ3 100MP Trichromatic - The Art of Expression. The Science of Colour.
Phase One is known best for innovation. The art of perfecting the exceptional goes to the core of the Phase One philosophy. To perfect the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back, they’ve delved into digital photography from a different perspective and focused on something often taken for granted: Colour. The significant role of colour in photography is something no one can underestimate. Being able to capture what our eyes can see has been an ambition since the introduction of colour photography. Colour vitality and accuracy goes to the very heart of photographic expression.
The Science Of Colour
Working closely with Sony, Phase One has introduced new technology to take digital colour capabilities one step further. The IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back renders colour in astonishing brilliance. It is capable of replicating, closer than ever, the colour definition that the human eye sees. Using a new CMOS sensor and Bayer Filter colour technology, only Phase One can offer the photographer 101-megapixels of creative possibility in never-before possible colour definition.
ISO 35 - Putting Image Quality first
This pioneering sensor design has also established the lowest and therefore cleanest base ISO of any medium format CMOS sensor. At an impressive ISO 35, the results of the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic are crisp and clean, providing the absolute lowest digital noise for any CMOS system of its size.

The Trichromatic comes with every feature you would expect from the IQ3 series including 60 min. exposure, power share, Wi-Fi, “open platform” integration, giving you a full-fledged IQ3 Digital Back equivalent to all other models.
100MP Full Frame Medium Format CMOS Perfection
The Phase One XF 100MP Camera System offers the same great advantages of full frame usability with the added benefits of CMOS. No lens crop factors, no focus screen masks, just uncompromised image quality from edge to edge.
The Electronic Shutter provides further flexibility and allows you to use any camera you prefer. Be it a custom camera, a view camera, or something as simple as a pinhole camera; the Electronic Shutter can provide full shutter control and operation directly from the back, all with no moving parts. It's the perfect addition to a digital back designed to connect the artist to the scene through phenomenal colour.
The Capture One Connection
Phase One develops its own in-house software, Capture One Pro 10.1, which works in perfect harmony with the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic. Whether in the studio or in the field, the result is a seamless professional workflow that delivers the image quality you have come to expect and a color accuracy beyond expectations.
Capture during Live View
CMOS sensor technology allows for an unmatched Live View experience. With the IQ33 100MP, Live View is greatly improved with the ability to capture during Live View operation. Whether you are using Live View on the digital back itself or through Capture One Pro, a simple click of the shutter will capture your image at full resolution just as you are seeing it in real-time. Once the image is captured, you’ll seamlessly return to live view to continue your required workflow.
16 Bit Analogue Feel
For quite some time Digital Photography has surpassed analogue films 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 the introduction of 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. For photographers striving for perfection, 16-bit Color is an essential addition to the versatility and resolution of the XF 100MP Camera System.
15 stops of Dynamic Range
The Phase One XF 100MP Camera System delivers an unparalleled 15 stops of dynamic range, retaining unmatched 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, demanded by the worlds leading photographers.
