Chasing The Ultimate Image

Go ‘large’ with the astonishing 151-megapixel Phase One XT camera system.

By Robb Report 02/07/2021

No, not everyone is a photographer.

A planet obsessed with ‘run-and-gun’ captures and sharing—yes, that’s the current societal framework. But what of the art and the creativity to capture? And what of the ability to elevate and enhance a moment through the use of exemplary materials?

Enter Phase One—specifically, the XT camera system.

A contemporary and highly compact medium-format field camera that shoots ‘large’, the XT’s technical prowess and allure comes grafted to an uncluttered and distinctive design—the body delivered by Dutch outfit Cambo and boasting DSLR-styled shutter button, integrated orientation slider with a built-in but removable Arca-Swiss style foot and more.

The ‘brains’ here is the Phase One IQ4 digital back—think electronics, screen and the incredible 151-megapixel image sensor—and comes paired to lenses by standout German manufacturer Rodenstock (across 23mm, 32mm, 50mm, 70mm and 90mm iterations), each featuring Phase One’s new X-Shutter, an intelligently controlled electromagnetic device.

Class-leading image quality married to premium photographic technology and with no AF or AE in sight? Sign us up.

The Phase One XT is available now from $95,000; crkphotoimaging.com.au/phaseonext or email sales@crkennedy.com.au
