The IQ250 features the widest usable ISO range of any high-end camera system.
Phase One introduces the world’s first CMOS-based medium format digital camera back. The new 50-megapixel IQ250 brings unprecedented image capture flexibility to the IQ2 family of wireless-enabled high-end camera systems. Delivering up to 15 stops of dynamic range and improved ISO sensitivity of up to ISO 6,400, the new IQ250 digital back will also be capable of shooting up to 2 frames per second in burst shooting mode.
In the studio or on a mountainside, the IQ250 lets photographers capture stunning imagery in available light — virtually anywhere and any time.
With a sensor size of 44x33mm, the IQ250 offers 68 percent more image-capture real estate than any full-frame 35mm DSLR camera and the widest usable ISO range of any medium format camera system.
The IQ250’s phenomenal dynamic range of 14 f-stops enables photographers to capture the most demanding scenes in one shot, while retaining details in highlights and shadows. This feature is a godsend for on-location photographers whose only option is to use the light available to them.

The IQ250 is designed for capture versatility. With an ISO range from 100 to 6400, it delivers world-class image quality at any ISO speed. And its range of exposure time – from 1/10000s to one hour – accommodates extensive shooting options. Another key feature of the IQ250 is its fluid and responsive Live View, which offers great composition and focus assistance.
The Nikon D5300 offers brilliant image quality with crisp detail. The enhanced 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers stunning images and HD videos due to the removal of the Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF). The Nikon D5300 combines performance with easy and intuitive features, to help users capture photos confidently.
For clean, sharp details in even the most challenging lighting conditions – including night games and dimly lit restaurants – the Nikon D5300 covers a wide ISO range of 100-12,800 and is expandable to ISO 25,600.
Nikon’s newest image processing engine drives the rapid response and swift performance of the Nikon D5300 while maximizing energy efficiency, reducing image noise and delivering true-to-life colours.
To further help users capture the image they intend, the Nikon D5300 features Nikon’s Scene Recognition System and 2,016-pixel RGB metering system to analyze and recognize the scene. Utilizing these systems results in automatic adjustments to exposure, autofocus (AF) and white balance to deliver the best photo possible, whether it’s a landscape or portrait.
Nikon’s quick and precise 39-point AF system works with the Scene Recognition System to accurately acquire and track subjects throughout the frame, resulting in tack-sharp images. Active kids that are too busy to pose for a photo or pets chasing after a toy are easily captured in brilliant sharpness for memorable photos.
While using the optical viewfinder or in Live View, take advantage of the D5300’s ability to shoot at 5 frames per second (fps) to capture great moments that would have otherwise been missed.
The Nikon D5300 is Nikon’s first HD-SLR to feature built-in Wi-Fi, allowing users to share high-quality photos instantly. The D5300 sends images to your phone or tablet, allowing you to share through email, social media or whatever else you can think of.
That means friends and family can now see your favourite moments as soon as they happen. The D5300 also includes built-in GPS, another first for Nikon HD-SLRs. You can also tag pictures and let people know where life takes you.
$849.95 for body-only
$1199.95 for the 18-140mm VR kit
$1799.95 for the new AF-S 58/1.4 G lens
