Tethering a Phase One XF IQ4 to your computer is quick, simple, and easy with Tether Tools gear! The XF IQ4 has a USB-C data port so you’ll need either a TetherPro USB-C to USB-C cable if you’re connecting your camera to a computer with a USB-C port (such as a new MacBook Pro) or the TetherPro USB 3.0 to USB-C cable if you’re connecting your camera to a computer with a traditional USB port.

Phase One XF IQ4 Camera System

Phase One XF IQ4 Camera Systems are built upon the new and expandable Infinity Platform. Three full frame medium format camera systems, based on the Infinity Platform, include the IQ4 150MP (151-megapixels), the IQ4 100MP Trichromatic (101-megapixels), and the IQ4 150MP Achromatic (151-megapixels). Each delivers a flexible and customizable photographic solution designed to evolve and adapt over time. The IQ4 features a new level of workflow optimization, integration and support for all photographic applications.

With the Infinity Platform, Phase One has moved the core of Capture One’s imaging processor into the IQ4 itself. ‘Capture One Inside’ offers unprecedented RAW file control. Image editing and processing – once possible only in the Capture One software application – can now be controlled within the IQ4. The Infinity Platform also allows Phase One to challenge fundamental imaging concepts, such as the limitations of dynamic range. Additionally, the IQ4 delivers new tethering and storage options, wireless integration, and performance improvements.
