Phase One iXR : fine art reproduction
The Phase One iXR is a robust and integrated medium format digital camera that has been designed to offer at high quality digitization for fine art reproduction and other industrial applications. Till now you only had the solutin to build your own solution and workflow. Now, Phase One comes with the iXR that offers a pretty interesting automatic workflow tospare photpograhers some boring tasks. The phase One iXR does not need any viewfinder. This one has been suppressed and that is smart (you will shoot tethered TTL with the iXR) because that allowed them to get rid of many moving parts and the vubration that come with them. The workflow is based on Capture One. If you read me regularly, you know how I like the RAW engine of Capture One, the finest, to me. The prices of Phase One iXR systems start at $29,900. It will be available in 40, 60 and 80 megapixels, camera w/lens, but can also be purchased body only for photographers that have a digital back already and just need the camera.
