9 step Pre-Owned Certification process

Full hardware inspection

Each system is visually inspected, functionally inspected and preliminary tested for signs of wear or possible impairment. This inspection is internal as well as external.

Internal clean-room inspection

Under clinical conditions each digital component is partially disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled as if it were a newly fabricated component.

Precision focus adjustment

Using microscopic measure, the digital sensor's mounting plane is adjusted to ensure perfect factory focus and precision performance with the paired optics.

Thorough mechanical testing

All components undergo strict performance tests for all moving parts. Not only shutters and buttons, but also simple moving parts such as battery doors and CF card ejection buttons.

Final test of electronics

Through integrated “stress tests” each electrical component is put through tests that ensure all integrated boards, processors and interfaces are working to new standards.

Calibration and firmware update

In the final stages of the inspection and adjustment process, the entire system is calibrated and firmware is reinstalled, updated and verified. 

Test captures

All ISO’s, shutter speeds, apertures, and storage options are tested thoroughly in a real world studio setting, ensuring that all components are working in tandem and capturing images to meet the system specifications.

Image quality inspection

The test capture images are now inspected by certified image quality professionals, and compared to standard test images that ensures the quality of the captures meets the standards of Phase One's ultimate image quality.

Quality assurance certification

Finally, the QA department performs additional independent, real world testing to ensure the camera works under demanding conditions without issue and not just within a laboratory setting.
