What is really amazing is checking out the images on the touch screen display with the ease of operating an iphone. In our rental package we provide super fast 32gb compact flash cards from SanDisk. (600 mb/s) Where as if you shoot tethered to a laptop you will be using a faster firewire 800 cable to directly transfer images to Capture One or Adobe Light Room. We also provide a radio accessory to synchronize with Profoto Professional strobes and power packs. Finally, the auto focus of the Phase One is superior and faster than the auto focus available on Hasselblad cameras. For slightly more than the DSLR rental price you can rent a very powerful creative tool that delivers a Boka that is simply not reachable with any DSLR camera. This is because the size of the sensor compared to DLSR sensors on the market.
The medium format lenses are designed for larger sensors rather then DSLR C-MOS sensors, and because the sensor of the IQ-140 is a 3-CCD the overall quality feeling can not be matched by any DSLR camera currently on the market. Basically, pictures of jewels, cars, motorcycles that are shot for advertising purposes require medium format technology. Usually medium format cameras do not perform too well at high ISO levels, but with the phase one technology there is a mode to increase the ISO up to 800 ISO without introducing noise. The Software interpolates between 4 pixels and records a resulting 1 pixel that is used in the final image. This technology is crucial to allow a lower resolution but no noise in the image for those shots where high ISO is important and flash is not an option
