Doug made a very valid point that it would be a good idea if Phase were able to limit the use of the dark exposure after a certain exposure time, so that say it's not needed until after a minute or 2. That should be possible. If Hasselblad can do than I don't see why Phase One can't do it.

they don't always do what the end user wants.
Hblad and the HY cameras both do focus stacking but the new phase backs/cameras/software do not. surely these kind of features would be seen as essential if all the competition have enabled it?

I would say that the ability to shoot images without having to double the exposure time is a fundamental need for most photographers don't you think Huh

By the way Gary. I love your shots of the mounds of coal or slag (not sure which)

Doug: What exactly does this mean?

Achromatic Has Come to the IQ2 Series

What delivery time do you predict for IQ280 (Contax)?

What is the upgrade cost, my IQ180 is like new, only a few 1000 exposures and has the Plus Package wty?

Kind Regards,


Jon

The official upgrade cost for an IQ180 to IQ280 with Value Added Warranty is $15,990.
You get a new 60 month warranty when upgrading from Value Added Warranty.
From what we have heard about ship times for the new IQ2 series is June timeframe. From past experience Phase One has started shipping the Phase/Mamiya platform followed by the others.

These figures scare me. Does it come with a free unicorn?

Once more the Phase One website is not clear on whether the H4X is supported or not, it only lists the H1 and H2...

I would assume that it is supported given that it was supported by the IQ1 and Credo backs was well...?

Doug responded on the USB3 beta thread....

Capturing over USB is supported now.

Live View over USB is forthcoming.

This is the case for both the IQ1 and IQ2.

So for now you are limited to live view on the digital back itself, or on a computer via firewire or thunderbolt (using the firewire adapter).

So for now live view over USB3 on the computer is not possible for either IQ1 series or IQ3 series.

However he said that live view can work on the back while tethered with USB3. Should tide people over till it's implemented over USB3.

I just shot a wedding with the IQ260, including many images at iso1600 and 3200. Shoot me an email and I can send you a few.

Based on the new sensor technology of the 260 and based on the 160 vs 180 performance as well as 160 vs 260 performance I would expect a modest advantage in pixel level quality of the 260 above the 280 when at very high iso, albeit with modestly lower resolution which would partially offset that difference (as the grain/noise will be slightly smaller at any given print size). At very low ISO I expect the opposite: the 280 with modestly more dynamic range and IQ.  However I can only speculate until public prototypes or production units of the 280 ship.

Possible USB3 wirekless solution for IQ1 series backs?

Modified code would be needed, but could be an option

Simple question:
 Should I trade in my P45+ for the new back?   Is it worth the 18k upgrade price?

yes or no?
