$63,000 CAMERA :: What do the images look like?

7906 ratings | 813262 views
The Phase One XF is the most high-end camera system you can buy. I recently had a chance to use this setup with the IQ3 monochrome back. I was told this back is the first one in the US so I was pretty excited. This camera setup is a game changer. The Phase One IQ3 Monochrome back is one of the most exciting things to happen in camera design in the age of digital photography. The sensor weighs in at a cool 101 Megapixels and its designed to capture light past the visual spectrum. When you understand how to shape this using filters you have one of the most advanced, digital monochrome cameras ever made. The results are stunning. Special Thanks to Digital Transitions for loaning me the camera and to Rod Clark who makes the best filter system on the market for setting it all up!

If you have ever done actual B&W darkroom work with ISO 100 Monochrome film, (from taking photo's to developing to printing) and experienced the "richness" and depth of the printed photo's, all of this Phase One's image quality makes sense and is absolutely amazing......especially when you have taken photos with monochrome film in low light with objects in bright and high contrast. This makes me long again for that lost art......that is why this costs so much....because it gives you now instant gratification and results...
Much like high end audio equipment. That has bandwidth between DC and AC only produces sound in a short stretch of that and does it effortlessly. Same here with the sensor. Really love that menu system Canon please take notice.

This is the type of camera for the type of photographer that gets fed skinned grapes to the mouth by an assistant. Every photo from this type of photographer sells for thousands no matter what it is about. For every photo that comes from this photographer, there is a moist millionaire fighting to buy it first, because the adjectives used to describe their beauty are even too advanced for the dictionaries we bottom-barrel peasants of society can afford. Having said this, I wouldn't get any sleep pixel-peeping photos from this camera if I had the chance to shoot one. God bless!

It kind of reminds me of high end audio, most people would never know the difference between $1,000 speakers and $20,000 speakers and to most they don't really care.As with photography if you show one of these photos to someone there is no way they are going to say wow that camera that took these must be $60k as you could take a photo with a cannon and get so close nobody except someone with a microscope will could tell the difference.

ill keep my iphone since I can do more than take great photos and video with it;)

How much money?? I think I'll stick to the B&W filter on my iPhone lol

I would probably be more likely to buy ultra-violet film and see what I could do with that. I've never used it but it seems like a bit of a cheaper option. even with the dark room I would need to make. Ilford do infra-red film (perhaps someone knows if you need special equipment to develop it)

Can you see if this camera can capture the chemtrail spraying planes that are all but impossible to see at full zoom with most all cameras? Also try taking pictures of the sunrise to see if the lens flares are as crazy as with so many others cameras too. \

Good video as always. I would like to see how a Leica M Monochrome (type 246) would stack up. Normally the Mono is ultra expensive compared to other cameras, but this time it would be a fraction of the price and I hear people saying similar things about the rendition. Also I'll just note that when the Leica M8 had that same frequency range (reaching into the near infrared) people called it a defect. I agree with you that it's a plus from my perspective. I'd love to see the Leica in a comparison as the "cheap" camera!
JÖHN GRAY (2 months ago)
My hit rate with the H6D 100 is far higher than with the XF. Probably due to the p1 having excess weight from the Schneider’s relative to the Blad which can easily be used for hand held work with the bonus of an amazingly cool user interface.
Karo Holmberg (2 months ago)
Camera sensor was originally invented for infrared spectrum. All the cameras actually record that area, but it is filtered out before hitting the cencor. So in that view, not so special except they have pushed it futher.

where can i order this camera?
benjamin Di Nunzio (2 months ago)
does the fact that it can use information that would typically be invisible to the human eye ie infrared help with the low and highlights? Essentially a much higher level of data and so it doesn't have to rely on grain as a typically limited sensor would. My meaning here is that it has more data to fill in what other sensors would have to render as noise?

Well, the camera is frigging amazing, however, we're talking about enough money to just about every Canon DSLR and a lot of the lenses made for the price of this one camera. If you have the money AND need the power, Good Lord, it is wonderful. Nice production, by the way, VERY professional.
Dihelson Mendonca (2 months ago)
The dynamic range still is not good enough compared to the human eye, so, there´s room to improvement. Notice how the sky is too bright when compared to the shadow. In the future, will have a camera which capture brights and darks the way it should be.

I'M sorry but the first3 black and whites you show are ... well terrible! Dark and lacking any emotion! Why would you display such in reference to such an expensive camera. Where are the tones? Ansel gave us three times as many tones.

There is not much groundbreaking about this camera and it certainly has not changed the game. lol Your high.

Steven Van Hulle (1 month ago)
Technically it doesn't: it can only take color pics which it then converts to B&W. Yes, I know: I'm an asshole :-)

I have been following Phase One for years. While there is a market for this kind of camera no one I know will ever own one. We get by with traditional and digital processes quite nicely for a fraction of the cost of a Phase One. One of our locals dedicated his life to 11x14 and he produces stunning images. With film. Imagine that. Film. Of course he is a serious master of the craft and god bless him for his dedication. The rest of us run with a d800e (or other) which is likely the last camera I will ever need to purchase.

You could buy a half decent Dslr with a bunch of lenses and go on 4 back to world cruisers, come back with change and thousands of fantastic photos in COLOUR ! Seems nothing like camera snobbery to me!

Would you say that removing the hot mirror and bayer filter from a cheaper camera would produce similar results as far as B&W-only photography?

I'm definitely not the target for this camera. I will not want to use it even if they pay me. I want small, color, with filters that make pics like i see (i'm not interested in what i don't see). Yeah, a phone makes me happy. For me, this camera is like an alien device.

Infrared can turn black clothes into a purple color if the sensor is capable of capturing IR. I believe this is why his sweater appears brighter in the image.
SeenCreaTive (3 months ago)
It's my understanding colour sensors have more or less 2 layers (to simplify it a lot) one for colour and one for light. The res a company out there that grind off the colour layer off of current cameras, and you end up with much better Iso performance. Since the light doest have to pass through a layer first.
Aniv Khawaunju (3 months ago)
Eh I feel like the Sony a7riii is a lot better than this and 57k cheaper. No one needs a 100mp. Most people only need around 24, so 42mp on thr sony is plenty enough. The pictures and the features don't really justify the 60k price tag. Many features are unnecessary and just have the wow effect and others are what most cameras already have.
Steven Van Hulle (1 month ago)
The 100 MP is not the point, the selling point will undoubtedly be dynamic range. Sony A7R III: 13.6 bit Phase One IQ3: 15 bit 13.6 bit isn't bad for a camera in that class, but I've never seen a sensor with more than 15 bit DR. Would I pay for it. Yes. 63k? Not with my current bank account. With 100M in the bank? Probably.
Kurgo (3 months ago)
The most interesting things of this camera, and things that SHOULD be integrated in normal cameras for human beings, were those bubble and seismograph things. For landscape photographers in particular they could be maybe gimmicky but actually useful more than a few times.

All digital sensors pick up into the infra red. They have infra red filters on them that you can remove to make an IR camera. Not that unusual
Oregon's Lonewolf (4 months ago)
Such overkill, and for what when you could do everything in post with a far less camera and glass. If a person isn't doing extreme cropping then enlargement with a 100MP camera, what is the point? For 64K, that thing better do my laundry

such a niche product. just get a sony a7r3, it gets you 1/4th of the way there and you'll save 30 grand.

"Deep" pixels isn't a joke. It's a simplistic reference to the amount of photons a pixel can capture before being read out.

Wesley Mooney (4 months ago)
You should take the same shots with a low end camera that the majority of people purchase so we can see the actual difference. Honestly looking at these photos without a comparison it looks no better to me than a 300.00 camera.

@9:25, you mentioned noise. I wonder whether they used median filtering. Now, to figure out the size of the median filter appropriate for the texture itself would be a challenge. I suppose having a very large resolution helps in these cases.

Is it just me or is the framerate super low? Like when he's talking he looks like a slideshow jittering around. It kind of breaks immersion because that's all I can concentrate on lol. Idk maybe I just don't appreciate cinematography enough. Oh well. That's just my two cents.

My camera can even shoot color
Gazza-usa (5 months ago)
Ok, I’ll bite. Most sensors are IR and UV sensitive. It’s the filter that removes those parts of the light spectrum. You can get the filters removed off a camera if you like (eg canon 5d4). That’s $4k worth of camera, $500 of filter removal and you get a full frame 30Mpix B/W sensor with all the canon compatibility. Sorry but for $63k you are being ripped off IMO.
