The sensors in the IQ3 80MP, IQ3 60MP and IQ2 60MP Achromatic are exclusively found in Phase One products. Not only are they exclusive they are more than twice this size of a 35mm DSLR like Canon or Nikon. Their size allows you to realize the full potential of your lenses. Whether it’s a tight interior space or scenic vista, the full frame sensors mean you’ll get more out of every scene.
