Phase One IQ180 Digital Camera Back Gets 80MP Sensor

When it comes to really high-end digital cameras for serious pro-shooters they often come with a back containing the sensor and mechanicals as a separate piece from the body. One of the latest such high-end cameras is Phase One’s IQ180, and the thing has a massively high resolution image sensor.

The IS180 packs in a sensor that has a whopping 80-megapixel resolution. The back in the photo above is connected to a 645DF camera body. The body is a medium-format unit and this is the sort of camera favored by the high-end shooters of hot models that need all the resolution they can get.

The camera back also has a faster memory interface to allow for continuous shooting at really high resolutions. The back also gets USB 3.0 specification support to allow for transferring those photos to a computer faster. Plus, it’s got a high-resolution 290ppi (think Apple Retina Display) multitouch back for easily viewing and interacting with images on-screen. The device will land at the end of April at an unknown price. I would expect it to be in the many thousands of dollar range.
