Capture everything anywhere

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.

 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.

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.
