Beyond the essential communication of the components, the XC Camera incorporates a single, simple and straightforward, dual-action shutter button. The simplicity and elegance of the camera emphasizes the essentials of photography.
Known for their great resolving power and contrast at large apertures, the optical design of the Rodenstock HR 23mm lenses reduces diffraction and color noise, even at the pixel density of the IQ4 150MP, providing flexibility to the full frame medium format sensor.
• The XC 23mm – Rodenstock HR Digaron-S 23mm f/5.6 is simply the best ultra-wide-angle medium format lens.
Full digital integration

151 million pixels
The XC Camera elevates the highest resolution full frame medium format sensor available, ensuring that each RAW image takes full control of the astounding quality and detail provided by the Rodenstock 23mm. The flexibility afforded by such image resolution provides endless possibilities in print, as well as providing the flexibility and convenience to crop and scale images to previously unimaginable levels.
At the heart of the XC – Rodenstock 23mm is the X-Shutter. The X-Shutter is an intelligently integrated and electronically controlled shutter, born out of Phase One’s Geospatial applications and experience. The X-Shutter is purpose-built to
allow for finer control in a smaller form factor. Powered by the IQ4, the X-Shutter shares in the ambition of the Infinity Platform for future growth and flexibility.
IQ4 Infinity Platform
At the core of the XC Camera is the IQ4, built on the powerful and flexible Infinity Platform. The Infinity Platform dynamically expands and adapts to market demands and technological changes. It provides you with new features, functions, compatibility, and improved usability. The Infinity Platform enables the same IQ4 to seamlessly switch between the professional power and functionality of XF, to the dedicated landscape design of the XT.
The XC Camera System is built using only the highest quality materials. Each aspect of the design and manufacturing, all the way down to the handcrafted handgrip, focuses on quality and precision, ensuring an exclusive and enjoyable shooting experience.
