The Phase One Achromatic+ is a 39 megapixel medium format digital camera back that provides wide spectrum black and white images with an unprecedented high level of accuracy.
The Achromatic+ is the first commercially available medium format back that is a true replacement for almost all scientific black and white film types at much higher quality and with far more consistency.
Traditionally, most camera sensors have a Bayer pattern of individual red, green and blue filters for each pixel. These individual colors are then interpolated through numerous methods to create RGB data for each pixel. The Achromatic+ back is designed to be a black and white only product with no color filters on the sensor.
Different configurations, multiple applications
The Achromatic+ is supplied in two different configurations. The first configuration includes a permanently mounted IR cut-off filter that is required to allow the sensor record the human visible spectrum. The second version is supplied with no IR cut-off filter and is therefore capable of recording into the visible as well as the infrared and ultraviolet parts of the spectrum using interchangeable filters.
