16 BIT COLOR - THE KEY TO ULTIMATE IMAGING PERFECTION

Phase One systems are famous for capturing smooth and subtle tonal transitions, replicating scenes with ultimate detail. This is in large part due to the unmatched 16-bit color depth, combined with decades of software development. The Phase One XF 100MP Camera System will be the industry leading 16-bit camera from day one.

IIQ L 16 bit - the first 16 bit CMOS file format

With the XF 100MP Camera System, we are introducing a new file format custom built for the 100MP CMOS sensor, the “IIQ L 16bit”. While we have always delivered 16-bit color depth with CCD based systems, the 100MP is the first CMOS sensor to deliver true 16-bit output captured directly from the chip. To enable this functionality, IIQ L 16bit is the first dedicated file format to deliver efficient and precise 16-bit CMOS based images.

16 bit Capture One processing

Interpreting 16-bit color is not only science, it’s a delicate balance of thousands of parameters meticulously evaluated and orchestrated in both hardware as well as software, all to deliver breathtaking results. We have spent decades of software development to create custom color algorithms in Capture One PRO. The XF 100MP Camera System is born into this legacy and will be the first and only 100MP Capture One PRO performer, ready from day one.

16 bit Vs. 14 bit

The Phase One XF 100MP Camera System will be capable of capturing in both 14-bit and 16-bit color modes, depending on the demand and workflow requirements of the photographer. In situations where a faster workflow and smaller file size is preferred the option to capture in 14bit, while retaining full resolution, is simply a setting away. Where increased speed and further file size compression is a priority, turning on the IIQ smart compression format (IIQ s) is always an option.

Lossless and intelligent compression

With the Phase One XF 100MP Camera System there are three user selectable formats: IIQ L-16bit, IIQ L and IIQ s. Both IIQ L-16bit and IIQ L are lossless compression formats, capturing 100MP resolution in 16-bit and 14-bit color depth respectively. The IIQ s format is exclusively developed, and has been optimized by Phase One for more than a decade. Image data is analyzed on the fly to provide 33% to 25% file compression sizes while retaining full resolution and impeccable image quality at a near lossless, 14-bit, compression. With the launch of the XF 100MP Camera System, we are proud to report the IIQ s file format has been refactored to provide results that are even better than before.
