New Digital Backs from Phase One

Phase One has announced a new series of digital backs, the IQ180, IQ160 and IQ140 featuring maximum resolutions of 80, 60.5 and 40 megapixels respectively.

The new digital backs sport a newly-designed 3.2 inch retina type, multi touch screen with 1.15-megapixel resolution, that provide the highest resolution and largest display of any SLR type camera available today, according to Phase One. This means that very fine details can be checked instantly during a photo shoot — for instance using Phase One’s unique Focus Mask and the instant zoom function.

The Phase One IQ180 captures at full-frame 80 megapixel resolution, with a dynamic range of 12.5 f-stops. It is the first product of its kind to feature a USB3 connection, facilitating faster image transfers in the future.

The new digital backs will begin shipping in April 2011, with retail prices starting from $21,990.
