STUNNING IMAGE QUALITY

Pushing image quality beyond megapixels

IQ2 digital backs offer stunning image quality with up to 80 megapixel captures. At the heart of these digital backs sit the largest cutting-edge sensors on the market; up to 2.5 times larger than the sensors found in full-frame 35mm DSLR cameras.

These sensors mean that IQ2 digital backs are capable of creating the best image quality imaginable, reproducing the finest details in one shot, even in scenes with a wide dynamic range from virtually pitch black to extreme highlights.

There are currently four digital backs in the IQ2 series:

  • IQ280
  • IQ260
  • IQ260 Achromatic
  • IQ250
