New Medium Format Digital Backs: three new Phase One IQ2 series (one is Black and White with no Bayer nonsense)

New cameras alert! Of the mainframe variety! Well, digital backs, not proper cameras-cameras. Phase One has announced three new IQ2 series medium format digital backs, the conventional IQ280 and IQ260 and the IQ260 Achromatic, which, as the name suggests, is a monochrome (black and white) camera with no Bayer nonsense interpolation!

Detailed coverage of this announcement, including four Phase One videos and four upcoming IQ2 launch events in the USA can be found at MF-centric retailer Digital Transitions.

Press release parade at GetDPI forums and and ePhotozine et al.
