Phase One & Sony partnered to produce the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic which achieves the next level of color capability by mimicking the color vision of the human eye, enabling the artist to express their vision more directly than ever before in 101-megapixel detail.

  • Phase One created a new customize Color Bayer filter on an all-new 101-megapixel sensor to tailor the color response
  • The customization of the Bayer filter material in the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic allows the sensor to capture, and thus produce, cleaner color separation of the red, green and blue pixels, particularly at lower wavelengths
  • Separating color at a sensor level from the time of capture, with little to no color contamination, provides improved latitude in the final image render
  • A base ISO of 35 means the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic can produce the cleanest 101- megapixel image possible, and reaching to 12,800
Phase One has intimate knowledge of our own digital sensors in addition to the 500+ different sensors from the range of cameras that we support in the Capture One software. We see in these different sensors, quirks and compromises, different strengths and weaknesses in color capability. We have been inspired by our insight to invest in what we consider one of the cornerstones of image quality - color - having seen the sacrifices of image quality in favor of other features made in most available sensors. With the Trichromatic sensor, we have put decades of knowledge into action and, together with Sony, physically customized the sensor to get pure color without compromise, all straight from the sensor. 

In the average sensor, the degree of color separation between the wavelengths of blue, green and red light is where the color compromise begins. The color filter array of the Trichromatic sensor, however, is designed to pick up exactly the right wavelength of light that allows us to get the most color nuances in the most natural way possible. This means that we achieve fully saturated colors, and that we can get every shade of blue, green, and red exactly as the scene reveals itself. The uncompromised nature of the color rendering from the sensor in the Trichromatic means that straight out of the camera, the possibilities in the RAW capture and color are wide open.
