Phase One has launched the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back, which boasts a new CMOS sensor co-developed with Sony that is designed to capture colour as perceived by the human eye.

Phase One says the new sensor technology in its IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back delivers ‘unsurpassed colour quality’ and renders more accurately than ever.

Key to this is a new Bayer Filter colour technology built into the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back’s new 100MP CMOS sensor.

The Phase One IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back sensor design also delivers what the company says is the cleanest base ISO of any medium format CMOS sensor at ISO 35. At this setting, Phase One says images from the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic deliver the lowest digital noise of any CMOS system of its size.
