IQ4 Mobile Platform discussion with Paul Reiffer

Our mobile devices are an integral part of our lives, and they’re proving to become an even greater part of our photography.  We were lucky enough to invite Paul Reiffer over to Denmark after 18 long months of lock-down. Getting out and getting to work, Paul Reiffer and Drew Altdoerffer explored the landscape of Denmark to put Cascable Mobile and the XT IQ4 through its paces.  The real-world use of Cascable and the XF IQ4 150MP were tested and discussed at length, exploring the strengths and weaknesses of they integration as it stands. But more importantly, discussing the opportunity that it presents for tomorrow. Our webinar discusses 3 aspects of this newly introduced workflow for the IQ4 Infinity Platform:   How is it used today  What lies ahead for the platform  What does the future of Mobile Integration mean for Paul’s discipline Join Product Manager Drew Altdoerffer and Professional Photographer Paul Reiffer as they get out and put the XT IQ4 150MP and Cascable Mobile through its paces and discuss the future implications.    You can download the RAW files from here:

Ultimate Flexibility with Frame Averaging on the IQ4 150MP

Long exposures have long been a primary compositional element of Landscape & Cityscape photographers like Paul Reiffer. The methods and application of creating long exposures can be quite challenging due to the additional accessories and technical understandings necessary to see your vision come to light. Phase One knows these challenges well, having pioneered the ability to capture 1-hour digital exposures as early as 2007. With the most recent developments of the “Infinity Platform” found in the IQ4 150MP, Phase One has taken this understanding even further and provided the ability to capture long exposure equivalents through Frame Averaging. Frame Averaging in the IQ4 150MP allows the photographer to: Capture Long exposures in daylight without filters Stop and save an exposure to accommodate unforeseen interruptions Instantly review the RAW file results without further processing Join Product Manager Drew Altdoerffer & Paul Reiffer as they speak about the science behind Frame Averaging, the application of the tool, and the image quality benefits provided by thinking outside the box when it comes to Digital Photography.   You can download the RAW files from here: …

“Normal” Photography – Why restricting your Focal Length can lead to great photographs

Everyone can be seduced by the grandeur of what a Wide Angle Lens captures. Everyone will reach for their Telephoto lens when composing a simplified or distant subject. But what about the lenses in-between? Focal Lengths that fall between a Wide Angle field of view and narrow Telephoto field of view, often become overlooked as far too “normal”. Meeting the challenge of seeing through what has become common opens many new opportunities! Our webinar focuses on the XF IQ4 150MP Camera System and the: Schneider Kreuznach 80mm LS f/2.8 Mark II Schneider Kreuznach 110mm LS f/2.8 Schneider Kreuznach 150mm LS f/3.5 These 3 lenses bridge the gap between Wide Angle and Telephoto lenses, each offering its own unique set of benefits and approach to various disciplines. Join Drew Altdoerffer, VP Portfolio Management, for a webinar, where he presents these three lenses, their flexibility, their challenges, and most importantly, their stunning image quality!   You can download the RAW files from here:

The beauty, simplicity and drama of Black & White photography

Every photographer starts somewhere, and for many it began with a love affair for black & white imaging. The tools at the time were different, but as the tools improve the attitude can still remain the same. Phase One is one of only a few dedicated camera manufactures to still offer an entirely Black & White system. Available as 100 and 150 megapixel solutions, Phase One’s Achromatic digital backs are committed to Fine Art black & white photography, with unparalleled image quality. Join Product Manager Drew Altdoerffer for a webinar discussing the benefits of the IQ3 & IQ4 Achromatic digital backs, and Phase One’s continued love of Black & White photography.   You can download the RAW files from here:
