The Phase one camera announces a new budget 100MP digital back. The IQ1 camera is actually a trim down version of top-end IQ3 model. It features almost same core specification as the top-end IQ3 model features. But tp cut down the cost of the camera the Phase one eliminates the HDMI or Wi-Fi communication.
The display options are bit restricted by reducing the Exposure clipping warnings and no Exposure Zone tool. The power supply is also limited, IQ1 models can’t share power with the XF body and have no electronic shutter or ability to capture while in Live View mode.
When an XF body is bought with an IQ3 back Phase One offers a lens up to the value of $6990/€5990, but this offer isn’t open to those buying the camera with an IQ1 back.
