Phase One Announces P 40+ Digital Back Camera

Phase One P 40+ Digital Back Camera

Phase One today unveiled their Phase One P 40+ digital back/camera system. This is the company’s second Sensor+ enabled digital camera back/camera system.

Like the P 65+ introduced last year, this new system offers two separate image-capture modes. In normal mode, the P 40+ delivers full 40-megapixel captures for high-quality image details. And when shooting conditions demand, a photographer can push a button and instantly switch from 40 megapixels to 10 megapixels, gaining a four-fold increase in light sensitivity (ISO to 3200), and a capture rate of up to 1.8 frames per second. Phase One says this is an ideal performance for hand-held and/or low-light conditions.

The P 40+ digital back starts at €14,990 (about $20,000); the P 40+ camera system starts at €16,990 (about $22,500). All products are available now.
