Uncompromised Image Quality 

The XF Camera System delivers uncompromised image quality thanks to quality Schneider Kreuznach optics and high-resolution full-frame medium format sensors.

Phase One’s full-frame medium format sensors, 1.5x the size of crop sensor mirrorless medium format, allow you to capture more data, providing more detail and impressive results so that you can achieve your creative vision straight out of the camera. With the expanded output flexibility provided by the high resolution and up to 15 stops of dynamic range, your workflow options grow exponentially.



Customizable Workflow

The XF Camera System allows for a completely customized workflow, ensuring the camera is an integral, unencumbered extension to your creative process.

When used with the IQ4, flexible tethering, storage and power management options ensure that your work is both efficient and reliable. And on the XF itself, you are able to further customize the camera to suit your way of working by assigning actions to buttons and dials on the camera so that your most-used tools are right at your fingertips. The option to save up to 3 custom presets so that you can easily switch to suit specific capture requirements, further lends itself to the needs of the working professional. These presets can be loaded into any XF Camera System effortlessly.
