The MOST EXPENSIVE CAMERA money can buy




David Brookover is in town and he’s brought a few surprises. This week we will be taking a look at the Phase One XF camera with the IQ3 monochrome back. It comes in at 101 Megapixels and is the most expensive camera to ever be sold. There is only one of these in North America and you’re going to get to see it!

Special thanks to Rod Clarke from Wine Country Camera and Digital Transitions for making this possible.

  1. The image size of an 8×10 is 246mm x 195mm, when scanned at 4800 PPI, you get 1,713.1 MP.

    If you go crazy and scan at 9600 PPI, now you'll have a 6,852.4 MP image

    How many Phase One exposures need to be stitched to get 6,852.4 MP ?

    I personally don't need images that large, so I'm happy with my Mamiya RB67 Pro SD's 168 MP

  2. This isn’t the most expensive camera money can buy.

    There are labs that will build you custom cameras if you have deep enough pockets … so, yeah. I knew someone way back when who was working in a university lab on massive CCD, 12×12” if I remember correctly. There was a pro photographer who commissioned two custom 4×5 backs for his view camera at ~$250k each. Never mind what NASA is putting into their new Webb telescope or preparing for future Mars missions.

    I don’t even think this is the most expensive camera commercially available. It’s fucking expensive, sure, and I want one in a bad way, but it’s not the end all be all and there are other systems you can drop even more cash on.

  3. 8×10 has an approx. 0.14 crop factor, so 210mm is about 30mm equivalent, but of course we have to bear in mind the 1:1.25 form factor as well. You don't have to remind me of the price of this Schneider, for the price of the center filter already makes me weep….

  4. The IQ3 100CMOS paired with the ALPA 12 MAX technical camera and Rodenstock HR glass is actually way more expensive! Even so the P1 with BR Schneiders are an amazing combination. Here in Europe it's a waiting game for the release of the150MP Sony sensor for the XF next which will be a game changer!

  5. And so where is the result? What can this camera do? You told us how amazing it was, showed us some monster camera that no one is interested in, and some guy modeling. Great. Where are the pictures?!

  6. Wow! I Want to know more about those filters! Each one had a plastic frame so no fingerprints. The wood grain on the holder is sexy af. Ted, you should get that guy back on the show if the opportunity ever presents itself.

  7. I feel you are taking advantage of a portion of your audience by indulging your talent for making quality videos at the cost of delivering a direct message. I expected to see some information about the camera and some images and to see how the same image from different cameras compare. You are getting too indulgent with your gift to make videos, in my opinion. Clearly, some viewers only want to see your videos regardless of subject, so this is only one person's opinion, and I may be in the ignorable minority.
