Are the IQ2 models using new sensor new designs, or just making improvements in circuit noise to improve DR a bit?

IQ260 is an entirely new sensor design. It is not the same sensor as the 160 or even that sensor with additional electronics. It is a new sensor, and built from the ground-up for good long exposures.

Hi,

That will make some folks happy!

So, Phase was involved in the sensor design?

Any of the new sensors have micro lenses?

Best regards
Erik

I'm completing an article mid-week on all the details of the new sensor, it's design, and other aspects of the "how they pulled a rabbit (dalsa+longexposure) out of a hat"

Very interesting.

Yep, should be a nice read. Looking forward to reading the article as well.

Are you sure Doug? This guy called Fred says it's not, and I reckon he knows a bunch of stuff about medium format...

Oh wait...

I am really excited about the new monochrome back! It's back to the old days of going on location with backs for colour shots and backs for B+W. Just a slight increase now in cost and weight (especially with the batteries required).

If the colour cast issue, when used on tech cameras, has also been looked at then this could be a real contender to replace my p45+

Any ideas if live preview will work over WiFi? Hard to imagine though,

Maybe Michael can check this out in his forthcoming test and review.

Live preview over wifi is on the plan but will not be ready on day 1.

Wow, that would be exciting! I am shooting architecture tethered to a 11" macbook air, mainly because I really like the large preview for composition. Live preview to an iPad would be SO much more convenient for me…

thanks for the insight,

Color cast is identical to the previous generation (IQ160=IQ260, IQ180=IQ280).

This means the IQ260 will have significant limitations with the Schneider 28XL and some minor limitations with the Schneider 35XL. A Rodenstock 23HR, 28HR, or 32HR would be better choices at that end of the wideness spectrum.

Being limited in the way you can use two specific lenses is something to consider. However, you do have the Rodenstock equivalents at the super wide end, and you can use any of the Schneiders starting around 43mm without meaningful limitations.

Hi Doug,

The IQ260 will be perfect for my magazine work.  No more tripping over the tether cable....Will the wireless work with other brands of tablets?

When will the new body be coming out?  My present DF body only goes to 1/4000 and new back will allow one to shoot at 1/10,000.  Also will the flash sync be increased?

Thank you,
Jeffery

Jeffrey -

I'm not sure you should read too much into the 1/10,000th shutter speed capability. This has been the quoted performance cabability of backs since (at least) the P65+.

Regards,

Gerald.

Wireless at launch will only support the iPad/iPad Mini/iPhone/iPod Touch.

They are considering a version which would support a broader range of devices. But I wouldn't count on it, and such a solution definitely won't be ready at time of launch.

The only public comments on a new body is by the CEO saying it is a project they are working on. I can't be more specific than that.

Flash sync of 1/1600 is already a full stop higher than any other body which accomplishes flash sync by means of a leaf shutter. I suspect we won't see anything faster than that based on mechanical technology (leaf shutters), or if we do it will only be a bit faster. Surely at some point electronic shutter technology ("global shutter") will reach the point where a sensor can be designed with it without any image-quality compromises. At that point every shutter speed will sync with flash. But I suspect we are several years from that.
