Phase One IQ3 XF100MP

Warren from @phaseonephoto got in touch to ask if we’d like to try out the new IQ3 XF100MP System. We decided to put it through it’s paces shooting some shallow depth of field portraits to check the speed and accuracy of the auto focus system and some fast-sync flash, pushing the ISO to test the sensor sensitivity and noise handling.

The dynamic range is really quite impressive, and the files hold together extremely well even when pulled and pushed to quite extreme levels in post production. And the files are HUGE! The 16 Bit RAW files from the 100MP Full Frame CMOS sensor process out into 578MB tiffs – the mind boggles contemplating the size our retouch files would grow to on a job if that is the starting point.

“We’re gonna need a bigger boat!”
