Phase One online - for technical details of the 100 MP back



Zurich St Anton - 7th January 2016

HR Alpagon 4.0/32 mm and Phase One IQ3 100 MP - We got a production back from the Swiss P1 distributor Profot (thanks!) for a very quick production level test. We gave it to our friends of ScanderbegSauer for a test run at the nearby church as it was bad weather and asked them to put it in shape as they would like. So no RAW data. Just the final result with the HR Alpagon 4.0/32 mm with Center Filter, 10 mm of shift and their standard Photoshop work. Raw conversion took place with C1 9.02. We heard a patch is under way for curing some hick-ups. Anyway we thought we share it with you .

Please have in mind that the image was converted with an interim release of C1.
