Phase One IQ4 Digital Back Tour – Menus and Interface
Lau Norgaard and I are back and today we will visit the Phase One IQ 4 Camera menus. There are a ton of cameras out there right now with 5 new ones from various manufacturers being announced over the last few days. It’s getting hard to keep up. However, Phase One still is the leader when it comes to setting the bar high. This not only pertains to the megapixel count but also the design and operation of the cameras well as the tools these cameras have built-in.
To prove this point Lau and I will go through the menu and set up interface of the Phase One IQ4 digital back. You’ll see instantly that Phase One decided to break away from the linear style of menus that almost all camera manufacturers use. Instead, they designed a menu system from the ground up all based on a graphic interface. The bottom line is this produces a much more intuitive user experience with these digital backs.

I know that for many of you the thought of ever owning a Phase One system may be out of any kind of consideration. However, it is pretty cool to see what they are doing. In the next episodes, we will dive to Capture One topics. So things are going to pick up speed as dive into the newest features of Capture One 12.
Photography is my passion and has been for 50 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of picture taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can, hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through photoPXL.com, this site, as well as Rockhopper Workshops, and other projects, as well as teaching as Artist In Residence at the Indianapolis Art Center.
