Two things you can do with a Phase One IQ180

I never new how good the IQ180 actually is in low light. You just need to use it right. The above portrait was taken at 3200 iso (yes thats right 3200 iso) on my IQ180. It was handheld at F/2.8 @ 1/40th of a second from memory. I used the sensor plus function on the camera which combines 4 pixels into one. You end up with a 20mb file but hey I used to be really happy with 20mb. It has opened  my eyes to all new shooting possibilities with the Phase.



This shot of the surf was taken today, ok it isn’t the best surf photo in the world but with all that backlighting and spray the contrast was out of control. Not for a Phase One luckily. The detail in the foam and spray is incredible. The 240mm Schneider was the lens of choice today, man it is sharp when you nail it.

So just when I thought I needed to buy a Nikon to do some low light stuff my Phase One IQ180 comes to the rescue. Just love it!
