60 Megapixels Of Glory – Shooting With The Phase One IQ160

Say hello to my new friend

I am excited and proud to announce I have a new partnership with the makers of one of the finest digital camera systems and capture software in the world, Phase One, and my favorite photography plug-ins by Nik Software. Digital Transitions and Phase One have provided me with a brand new Phase One body with 60 Megapixel IQ160 digital back with its incredible and intuitive touch screen control system to play with for awhile.

I will get into more details after I can do a full review, BUT I can say that this camera and associated capture software (Capture One) are literally changing the way I shoot. It’s incredible. Sure, its nice to have a lot of resolution, but aside from that there’s the unbelievable high flash sync speed (up to 1/1600!!), incredible depth and clarity with the medium format sensor (no DSLR can touch), 12.5 f-stops of dynamic range!!, etc etc etc. You have to see the images to believe, which I will share with you in future posts. Stay tuned for some pictures and video as the summer progresses!
