Phase One have introduced the world’s first medium format dedicated digital reproduction camera system as well as a medium format camera dedicated to aerial photography.

Phase One iXR and iXA

Phase One iXA Camera System

Developed with leading experts and engineers in the field, the iXA has been built to streamlines the image capture and processing workflow. This camera is a major addition to existing aerial camera implementations that Phase One already provides to its partners in the industry.  With a choice of 80 megapixel or 60 megapixel models, in either RGB or NIR versions, the iXA is easily incorporated into existing or new systems.

The Phase One iXA’s rugged construction incorporates 6061 aluminum alloy, while secured connectors firmly hold cables in place. The iXA operates effectively either in single or in a multiple camera configuration, capturing synchronized images within 100 microseconds of each other and eliminating post production sync issues.

The Phase One iXA offers high dynamic range and detailed image quality, with outstanding image sharpness and excellent color with Phase One’s range of Schneider-Kreuznach internal electronically controlled leaf shutters and Phase One digital lenses. The Phase One SDK software provides control over critical exposure parameters such as ISO, shutter speed, aperture and capture during the flight and includes interface components for custom applications to work with the iXA camera system in a production set up.  

The Phase One iXA will be available in May priced at 45,000 EUR / 60,000 USD for the 80MP version and 40,000 EUR / 53,000 USD for the 60MP version.

Phase One iXR Camera System

The Phase One iXR is a robust, fully-integrated digital camera system designed to excel at high-quality digitization such as fine art reproduction and diverse industrial applications.

The Phase One iXR was designed to streamline workflow by enabling full control of the entire process. Using the iXR camera system with Phase One’s Capture One workflow software, photographers can take advantage of remote focus and easily move from live view to capture at the click of a mouse.

The iXR incorporates a rugged industrial design that has done away with both the mirror and viewfinder to reduce moving parts and subsequent vibrations. The camera made from tough aircraft grade aluminum alloy and is available in three different configurations – 80MP, 60MP and 40MP. The iXR is also available as a stand-alone camera body for existing Phase One digital back owners.

Prices for a complete iXR camera system including lens begin at  22,990 EUR / 29,990 USD and will be available in May.

Probably awesome performance but look at the price tag...extortionate. Can't see how these can't be produced for about 10,000 - 12,000 retail including tax .These sort of products would be ideal niche for a new British Hi-Tech start up to be involved in. Worth a 6 or 7 figure government grant to help them get started.
