The IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Camera System

A new benchmark in the interpretation of the primary colors


It all starts with the hardware

The IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back is different because of the hardware. Designed around the concept of mimicking the dynamic color response of the human eye, we have physically customized the Color Bayer Filter on the 101-megapixel sensor to tailor the color response. This allows the Digital Back to capture color in a new way, unlike anything else.

Commissioned by Phase One and built by Sony, the Phase One Trichromatic sensor is only found within the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back. This pioneering technology, allowing for the capture of vivid and vibrant color close to the dynamic color ability of human vision, sets the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic in a league of its own.
