Phase One Feature Update #3
This October Phase One announced a whole raft of new features that our rental equipment now benefits from. Below is a summary of some of the main features that caught our attention, full information can be found here.
Flash Analysis & Rear Curtain Trim
In flash photography it is essential to understand the characteristics of your output. With the Flash Analysis Tool, you are now able to review all aspects of your flash output just after the capture. Flash duration, output power and flash sync timing within the capture are now all available with the Flash Analysis Tool. With a simple visual representation of your flash output, you can now evaluate your effective and total flash duration; you can even trim the flash sync timing directly from the camera to achieve perfect results.
Advanced Profoto Air
Further improving on the XF Camera System’s Profoto flash integration, we’re delighted to announce full control of your flash system with the new Profoto Air Tool. With the full functionality of the Profoto Air now built directly into the XF Camera System, you can integrate your Profoto off-camera flash easily and efficiently. Control, fire and access up to six groups of Profoto lights wireless, directly from the XF Camera display.
With the newly introduced Profoto Air Tool, TTL flash metering is now possible with the XF Camera System. For photographing in ever-changing lighting conditions and fast paced location work, Profoto AirTTL flash metering can be an essential tool for consistent results. The Profoto Air integrates with the XF Camera System’s Auto Focus sensor to provide active feedback and deliver accurate exposures with every capture, no matter the variables.
An industry first for Medium Format, we’re introducing the most technically advanced, versatile and dynamic feature yet, complete Electronic Shutter integration. Now, with the IQ3 100MP on either the XF Camera System or an alternative technical camera, you can capture images without a single moving component. With the new rolling shutter technology of the IQ3 100MP, you have complete control directly from the digital back. The Electronic Shutter not only provides advantages for a number of capture scenarios but it extends the control and workflow possibilities for Live View, Black Reference integration and technical camera applications.
