It’s been an interesting week in Iceland as I shoot with the IQ260 and put it through its paces. It handled long exposure super well, it is easy to shoot it from the iPad and it makes great images. The image above was made with the IQ260 and 9 images stitched together. I used the 55mm LS lens to shoot the individual source images and then stitched in Photoshop. Because there was little color in the image I thought it looked great in B&W. You really must see the detail in the full size image to truly appreciate what this camera and back are capable of. Remember the NEW IQ260 will be at all PODAS workshops. Join us and give it a try.
At the PhotoPlus Expo recently held in NYC, we ran a special promotion where anyone purchasing a version of Capture One would be eligible for a fully paid tutiton to a PODAS (Phase One Digital Artist Series) workshop.
We are happy to announce the winner of a PODAS workshop:
Tara Hartnett from Whitefield, New Hampshire.
We look forward to welcoming Tara to one of our PODAS workshops in 2011.
PODAS will be hosting a series of workshops in 2011 held around the world where photographers can attend to learn more about medium format – high resolution photography. These workshops are all-inclusive and includes everything except transportation fees to get there. Each attendee is provided a Phase One P 65+ digital camera system during the workshop.
At this moment we are finalizing our exotic destinations for 2011. Stay updated from the links below.
We hope to see you to one of our PODAS workshops this year!

PODAS has officially kicked off today. Through out the day Phase One team members shuttled attendees in from Las Vegas airport. This went extremely well and all the flights and attendees made it without delay. After a cocktail reception from 5 – 6 PM, an opening program was presented. The evening kicked off with a multi-media presentation of photographs around Death Valley. This was followed by the distribution of camera systems to the attendees. Michael Reichmann capped the evening with a presentation to excite everyone about seeing things photographically. Below is the opening slide show. Check back soon for photos of opening night. For now it is off to bed as we leave at 4:45 AM for sunrise shots.
