The Infinity Platform 

The Infinity Platform lays a new foundation for image quality advancement performance, workflow optimization and feature development. The Infinity Platform is built to grow, expand and adapt, allowing Phase One engineers to explore new possibilities in digital imaging and deliver a steady stream of new innovations to ensure you are able to perform at the highest professional level now and well into the future.

Capture One Inside

The cutting-edge RAW editing core of Capture One has been directly integrated in the Infinity Platform, providing advanced control within preview and image settings, and opening the door for future customization of the RAW file at the time of capture. Capture One Inside ensures the most efficient and controlled capture workflow, bringing the capture and post-capture workflows closer together than ever before.

Power Management

The IQ4 gets an extra power boost thanks to Power over Ethernet (PoE)and USB-C tethering options which are able to provide power directly to the camera system. Ethernet tethering and PoE provides an uninterrupted workflow when shooting in the studio, while external powerbanks can be utilized to extend up time in the field.

Future-Proof Tethering Options

The IQ4 has multiple tethering options to handle the bandwidth and dynamic workflow needs of the most demanding photographers. Wireless, USB-C and Ethernet connectivity are all standard, eliminating concerns of insufficient cable lengthor compatibility.

Dual Storage

With both XQD and SD card support, the IQ4 gives you the flexibility to capture RAW images to your primary card while processing a copy RAW or JPEG to a second storage option, or simply expand your total storage so that you can focus on getting every shot.

XF Integration and the Open Platform Philosophy

The IQ4 gains tremendous functionality and workflow benefits when used as part of an XF Camera System but can also be used with technical cameras for creative flexibility and project-specific need. Regardless of camera choice, the IQ4 is primed for future development aimed at delivering the creative and workflow innovations needed to continually create at the highest level.

Full Frame Medium Format

The full frame medium format sensors found in XF IQ4 Camera Systems, 1.5x the size of crop sensor mirrorless medium format, allow you to capture more data, providing more detail and impressive results so that you can achieve your creative vision straight out of the camera. With the expanded output flexibility provided by the high resolution and up to 15 stops of dynamic range, your workflow options grow exponentially.

Professional Workflow Flexibility

Whether you shoot in a studio or in the field, the IQ4 is primed to complement your shooting style with modularity, capture customization, purpose-built tools,and features to assist every photographer. The result of this flexibility is a customized workflow that transforms the camera into an integral extension of your creative process.
