At the forefront of change

IQ Digital Backs are designed by photographers and built by our team of dedicated engineers. Together, they have created a platform that provides the modular flexibility you need with a future-proof platform that you can rely on. As we continue developing the platform, we pass those developments on to you in the form of complimentary Feature Updates.

Phase One IQ Digital Backs come with an industry-leading warranty and service guarantee, because we do not compromise when it comes to delivering camera systems that will serve you well into the future.

15 stops of dynamic range

"15-stops really help when shooting in tricky lighting conditions. And trick light is the norm above remote icy landscapes!" -Timo Lieber, Fine Art and Aerial Photographer

High ISO performance

"Even shooting at 3200 ISO I’ve found that the file retains its beauty, noise isn’t a problem, and more importantly allows flexibility with colour toning." -Bella Kotak, Fashion and Fine Art Photographer

Up to 60 minute long exposures

"It still amazes me the beautiful color rendition and low noise these backs can produce, even when pushing the limits of exposure time and temperature." - Peter Marshall, Photographer and POCP Instructor


A sensor 2.5 times bigger than 35mm DSLR
