This morning our first IQ180 arrived.

http://www.captureintegration.com/2011/05/02/phase-one-iq180-delivered/

We're happy. We're taking requests for tests to conduct on this first non-prototype unit. Please contact us with anything specific you'd be interested in seeing.

Ah - thanks Ciprian - corrected the link.


Basically, we've all seen the datasheet, we've seen the feature list. What we're interested in at Capture Integration - as always - is confirming the real world performance of these features. That's what we'll be spending our time on over the coming weeks (and months).

I can see many potential opportunities to verify what the feature list claims the IQ180 can do as well as adding context to how well it actually does them.

We certainly have our own ideas on what we think needs review to see how real world is rendered. Looking forward to hearing suggestions from all of you on tests to see how well the IQ180 actually performs.

Personally, I'd like to know:

1. How the sensor copes with applying large movements to wide lenses on a tech camera. Same or worse as a P65+?
2. How well C1 v6 corrects any sensor casts and lens falloff.
3. Dynamic range in practice.
4. Tech camera focusing with the new screen and using any currently enabled firmware features. Much easier or not much change?
5. Perceived image quality compared to a P65+ (other than the additional MP).

Thanks for offering to do these tests.  I'm tossing up an IQ180 or 160.  Given the price of the IQ180 I don't want to assume too much with how the new sensor may perform.

As soon as Live View is available (June), we could certainly do that.

Steve,
Of particular interest to me is blooming control.  Could you shoot a couple shots into the top of a tree with the sun shinning through it or some other strongly back lit situation where there are a lot of fine details where one edge is dark and the other very hot? 

Thanks,
Eric

Can you have a car drive over the unit to make sure it holds up like previous phase test? Or maybe place it in the freezer over night?

Only 2 things
1 Can an elephant stand on it.
2 If I happen to drop it in dry ice will it still work frozen.
Those have always been phase standards, why change now?

I think the elephant thing is pretty old hat now. How about a hippo? Oh and maybe drop it in some molten lava instead of dry ice.

..and please let the elephant wear a Canon/Nikon cap. He can hold a Nikon flag in his trunk if you prefer, as far as I remember Nikon had some fancy flags for their events.

and being serious- IQ180 movements vs p65+ movements on tech camera would be cool (raw files would be much appreciated) and some really-wide-angle performance on tech cam. Also newly listed long exposure feature test would be great.

Since live view will not be available till June, how about evaluating focus mask:

Shots with a technical camera that has the ability to fine-tune focus, like an arca, alpa/w HPF rings, or any other available system.  Focus in and out from actual focus plane in small increments.  Check how well focus mask follows visually on the display. 

Point being can focus mask be used to critically evaluate focus? Does it behave just like C1 or are there any distinct differences?

How well does it handle long exposures?  What is the real time limit to exposures?  Does the back do any dark frame subtraction?

And for all you crash test folks, I'll be glad to run your tests if you send me your backs.

1) Performance when shooting tethered to:
a) Macbook Pro i7 with 8GB RAM
b) Mac Pro 12 core with 8GB RAM
(30 images in continuous mode)
and direct to CF card
2) ISO 35 - 2 minutes exposure - noise in dark area
3) ISO 35 - how long we can expose in about 32 degrees F
4) Performance - battery in about 32 degrees F
5) Shooting with Alpa or Arca RMD3Di with wide lens :Schneider Apo-Digitar 5.6/24 mm XL ( with tilt)
