P1 IQ3-100 images?
« on: June 01, 2016, 02:23:23 AM »

Dear IQ3-100 owners,

The backs have been out for quite some time now.

How about a thread in which you'd share you best images?

Thanks.

Cheers,
Bernard

Pity that web resolution images won't be able to showcase much of a difference between a 5mp cell phone pic, properly edited, and a 100mp(and seriously down-rezzed) web image.

Just saying...

Perhaps using full-mp TIFF files to a dropbox location in addition to a web jpeg? Then we'd be able to assess the full resolution potential

Dan,

I don't care about details or about technical aspecs for that matter, I am just interested in seeing what kind of work is produced by the IQ3-100 owners.

I was in a conversation 2 days ago with a friend who was stressing that second hand backs kept being sold at LL with very low shot count and his claim was that a majority of non pro back owners hardly ever use their cameras. I strongly doubt that and I am convinced that great work is produced with those, but I had to agree that very few images are shown on LL.

Hence the question.

Cheers,
Bernard

Hi Bernard

I use a P1 IQ3 100 and so does my friend Tim Wolcott. We have posted on Luminous before and we make our living selling fine art prints. if you wish, you can check us out online. I just switched from another medium format manufacturer to Phase One.

Please let me know if I can help.

Great, thanks for joining this thread, I was starting to feel a bit alone. ;)

Could you point us to images you have captured with the IQ3-100?

Thanks.

Bernard, I think whats more important is that we make our living selling and exhibiting our photographs.  I have to date more than 400 exhibition images shot with the Phase system.  Since the day I got the new 100mp system its been a game changer from the older systems.  Its a very sweet system.  Will post more computer having issues.

Hi Bernard

I have attached a couple of jpegs that are on my ipad. Three are scenes of trees and a sand dune shot
using the new 35mm lens. I mostly shoot trees and intimate landscapes.  I have posted in the love those trees category and clouds under the forum section user critiques. If you have a look at my website it will give you a sense for the work that I do. I can post more if you want. I am sure Tim will post a bunch of images for you.

If I can suggest you may want to contact a local dealer and try the xf with the iq3 100 back and the new blue ring lenses. You will be able to see for your self how good the system is and get full size images.

 I tend to print large prints and the forest images that I shoot come alive when printed large (recently, we sold 13 ten foot prints). It makes you feel like you are standing in the forest. 

Please let me know if I can help. BTW, I really like your mountain images from Japan. Japan is on my list of places to shoot.

Not always but very often, I can tell an extra quality (drawing power?) from files on the internet in my iPad coming from cameras or backs with that extraordinary mp count. Just today I enjoyed that extra impact from some 5DSr files and that pic in this thread with the enchanted green forest looks luxurious!
Please keep'm coming!

A few images from New Zealand. Not my typical imagery that sells for me, but helps broaden my portfolio.

These are files that were on my iPad so they may not be finalized. They should give you a sense for the images.

Low shot counts on sold backs have been common all the time, so there hasn't been a change from how it was a few years ago. Some are backup backs, some users don't shoot very much. And then occasionally there are those with huge shot counts too.

If the camera is used on a tech cam it can have low shot counts and still be used quite much. When I'm out shooting with my Linhof I make about one image per hour. As I guess exposure and take lots of safety shots it can be quite many exposures still, but it's not like my Canon when one action event can be 500 exposures.

Thank you all for posting images, it is nice to see great images captured with this wonderful back.

I hope that some amateur owners will contribute as well.

Yes, beautiful images indeed!

I was in a conversation 2 days ago with a friend who was stressing that second hand backs kept being sold at LL with very low shot count and his claim was that a majority of non pro back owners hardly ever use their cameras.

I don't make my living through photography (except when it involves a microscope ;)). But that's not to say that my MFDB sits around unused. It has and probably always will have a low shot count, even though the Nikon usually stays in the closet. Working more slowly and on a tripod for landscape and still life (vs. shooting a sporting event), aside from some exposure bracketing and framing adjustments, the need/benefit to firing off a ton of shots is not there for me. Perhaps this discipline - if you can call it that - carried over from my days of using film. I was certainly more judicious when shooting a 12-exposure roll of 120 than a roll of 135. But to reiterate: I don't make my living at this...

If someone is looking to evaluate the technical merits of the IQ3 100mp we have something like 30gb of raw files for free download here:
Phase One IQ3 100mp Raw File Download

The purpose of this thread, for the OP, was to see what sorts of images are being made by IQ3 100mp. Of course 99% of our IQ3 100mp owners aren't on forums, but it would be great to see who on the forum is producing what kind of images with the 100mp.

By the way, I think it's a complete misunderstanding to say you can't see the quality of medium format at web res. Most of our clients are buying medium format for reasons other than resolution (or at least that's not their primary goal). The color, tonality, and overall look of medium format is the main driver, and that is visible even at low res.

It's true - some non professionals turn in digital backs with very low shot counts. In our experience, this is the exception. Most units we accept have a reasonable amount of use. But a busy pro might shoot 2000 frames in a day for days on end, while many non professionals might shoot a landscape scene or a studio project and not take anywhere near the same amount of shots. And that might happen twice a month, or as time allows. Certainly many non professional users are not regular shooters, they may have day jobs or other activities and shoot selectively. In any event, there is plenty of quality work we've seen produced by clients, both professional and non professional. In a lot of cases, some of the best work is often not actively shared by non professionals, we almost have to beat it out of our clients to get them to show us what they're doing. Interestingly, these often end up being some of the most compelling images.

In the spirit of your thread topic - how people are using the IQ3 100 - it has unsurprisingly become my favorite digital back model. While I love the images I've captured with 60mp and 80mp CCD sensors, those generally have been static subjects/environments, and while I appreciate that image quality, I have felt hampered in terms of spontaneity. The IQ3 100 has completely changed that. I love the file latitude and the high ISO performance. But we've already seen similar with the 50mp CMOS sensors. For some reason, I never really warmed to the 50mp, I still would take the 60mp/80mp CCD products out. The IQ3 100 changed that. There is something about the amazing file quality, the latitude of the file, the ability to shoot it in any kind of light, combined with that large sensor and all the details 100 megapixels brings. The combination of all that adds up to killer images, but importantly, many more opportunities to shoot in many more situations.

The attached file is one such example that really wasn't possible for me before the IQ3 100. It's nothing special, but the ability to capture it was a unique experience. Just walking around St Louis, in late afternoon/early evening, close to dusk, hand holding a 100mp camera, shooting at 800/1600 ISO and capturing images that retain amazing detail and sharpness. I almost never have any noise reduction applied at all (I have it turned off by default in C1) - because the noise is so minimal, and the grain so nice looking. And I want to extract every possible amount of resolution and detail.

And cropping capabilities are amazing. Sine I love walking/driving around and just shooting whatever looks interesting to me, the ability to crop after the fact even to the point of creating a completely new and different image out of an existing one is a great added benefit. If I crop 50%, I still have a native, non-scaled 24" x 36" print. If I crop 75%, I still have a native 20" x 24" print.

So - for me, what the IQ3 100 really has done is produce image quality never seen in a capture device in this category, while creating much more versatility and spontaneous opportunities in the environments I like to shoot in. I'm not usually such a "fan" of the products we sell and support, I've always liked them and appreciated them, but the IQ3 100 generates real excitement for me when I'm shooting with it.
