Key Features

Open Platform Philosophy

The IQ3 delivers a solution which is both modular and future-proof. The IQ3 gains tremendous functionality and workflow benefits when used as part of an XF Camera System but can also be used with a variety of other cameras for creative flexibility and project-specific need.

Regardless of system choice, since 2015, the IQ3 has periodically delivered innovative feature improvements aimed at improving professional workflows. We listen to the needs of our photographers to guide our development in creating workflow innovations that continually provide the highest professional standard.

Full Frame Medium Format Sensors

The full frame medium format sensor found in the XF IQ3 100MP Camera System, 1.5x the size of crop sensor mirrorless medium format, allows you to capture more data, providing more detail and impressive results so that you can achieve your creative vision straight out of the camera. With the expanded output flexibility provided by the high resolution and up to 15 stops of dynamic range, your workflow options grow exponentially.

XF Integration

The flexible modularity of the XF Camera System, and its seamless, feature-rich, and customizable workflow, helps professionals realize their most demanding creative visions. The XF Camera System allows for a wide selection of high resolution Schneider Kreuznach lenses and purpose-built IQ digital backs to be combined, and capture settings customized, for efficient and high quality RAW output.

Electronic Shutter (ES)

The Electronic Shutter (ES) allows you to capture images without a single moving component. A first for medium format when introduced with Feature Update #3, the rolling shutter technology gives full capture control from the digital back, extending control and applications.
