Headed To The Kimberley

The Phase One set up Kevin Raber is taking with him

The PODAS workshop in Kimberley starts next Saturday.  The team is heading off soon to do the prep work for what promises to be a fabulous workshop.  We have shipped 30 some camera systems, lenses and support gear to Australia that will be waiting there when we get there.  Some folks have to carry their gear though.  Take a look at what Kevin carries on a trip like this by reading an article on Luminous Landscape, What Is In Kevin’s Bag.

Postings from this workshop most likely won’t happen until the workshop is over.  We will be cruising with no cell or internet connection and even when we get off the boat we are unsure what kind of connection we will have.  So we will accumulate the posts and make them as soon as we have a good uplink.

This Is What Is All About

Getting Ready for the shot, Ernslaw Burn, New Zealand

PODAS is all about edge of the planet experience and photographs. This is a shot made last year at Ernslaw Burn in New Zealand. Reached only by helicopter, it is one of the most magnificent places you’ll ever see. Nearly 90 waterfalls cascade off of glaciers thousand feet high. No matter which way you aim your camera there is a great shot. We will visit this location and more in our upcoming PODAS New Zealand workshop this December. Check it out by CLICKING HERE and be part of this adventure. It will be a trip of a lifetime. In this image you can see the waterfalls and a Phase One IQ 180 back on an ALPA Camera system. You can try all this gear out on a PODAS and come back with your own images of these great locations.

IQ 180 Receives Highest Mark

It’s always good to see the Phase One products get high marks.  The latest achievement is the DXO test rating the IQ180 digital back the highest score ever.  The IQ backs are unique in design, interface, and more than anything else image quality.  Check the review out by CLICKING HERE.

Luminous Landscape Reviews the IQ 180

It has been quite a few weeks for Phase One. We started to ship the NEW IQ Digital backs and yesterday we released Media Pro, Phase One’s digital assets management application.  Things at Phase One are never stagnant and it will be quite an exciting year.  Today Michael Reichmann of Luminous Landscape wrote his review of the NEW IQ 180 Digital Back on his website that you can find by clicking here.  This is quite the camera system. I shot with it last week while in Moab, UT along with Claus Molgaard – Phase One’s Chief of R&D. The IQ backs will be the cameras we use for PODAS workshops starting in July. It’s a great chance to try out this amazing camera system and see the images that it produces.

We are also putting the finishing touches on the New Zealand workshop in December and we will announce a very special workshop for September soon. Stay tuned.

So Much Happening

Harry Sandler, Ireland with his Phase One system

Lot’s of things going on at Phase One – exciting Times – stay tuned – check out our web site in the coming days.

PODAS 2011 will be officially announced soon. We have a lot of very nice places on our list of workshop locations with some great instructors. And, best of all you get to work with the latest Phase One gear and software. Also, PODAS will be taking some new turns this year with large and small workshops as well as some vertical workshops. One of the vertical segment workshops will be on shooting architecture. Stay tuned for more details.

PODAS had its origins in Death Valley. As part of the workshop we made available the option to purchase gear. On the Death Valley workshop our very first customer was Mr. Harry Sandler. As with all the PODAS attendees Harry has become a great friend and I admire his photography and artistic creativity. You can visit Harry’s blog by clicking here. Harry sent me this photo (above) of himself and his Phase One camera from a recent trip to Ireland. PODAS will be visiting Ireland in the spring so watch for information soon.
