Last autumn, Phase One released the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic digital back for their XF camera system. The digital back incorporated a newly-designed 101-megapixel medium-format sensor which utilized new Bayer Filter color technology. This tech allows for a different method for separating red, green and blue light and Phase One claims that this leads to more authentic color reproduction.

While the camera is very expensive (around $50,000), the results seem impressive. Photographer Ted Forbes borrowed the new camera from Digital Transitions and took it around in Arizona alongside photographer and printer Matt Beaty. The Arizona landscape proved to be a great place to test out the camera's color reproduction chops. Forbes also found out how detailed the results can be when you create a panorama using the 100-megapixel camera.
