    FS: Phase One IQ3 100

    Hi all -

    For sale is my Phase One IQ3 100.

    Anyone in the market for one of these will know what it is, so I will spare you all the sales talk.

    Excellent condition - has only ever been used on a tech cam mounted on a studio stand in an indoor studio. Poor thing has never seen blue sky.

    Warranty until (at least*) 28th October 2021
    730 exposures only

    I have multiple successful high-value sales on this forum - please don't hesitate to ask for references if desired.

    Price - US$19,500.

    Back is currently with me here in Thailand. Depending on the timing of the sale, it can be hand delivered in Dubai, or if you are in Europe it can be shipped to you from within the EU to avoid those pesky import duties.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me via PM with any questions, from where we can take it to WhatsApp to continue the discussion and where I can share photos and videos.

    Kind regards,


    Gerald

    (* - This back was swapped out with my earlier example of an IQ3 100 by Phase One following a protracted and frustrating support experience in September/October of 2018. Once the support issue was resolved, I was given the option of keeping my original IQ3 100, or keeping the loaner back. Since the loaner back was a brand new unit, I chose to keep it. The date provided above is that confirmed by Phase One as what is in their system for this back.)

    Hi all -

    Just an update regarding the warranty.

    Phase One have now confirmed that a new 5 year warranty should have been issued with the back on exchange. Their system has now been updated reflecting that the warranty on the back has been extended to 28th October 2023.

    Kind regards,


    Gerald.

    That really is bargain! Can't believe how bad the value is after the GFX release.

    Value is actually quite good, it's just that the "qualified and able to buy" pool of buyers is much smaller.

    This is an absolute bargain----and from a known GetDPI family member as well.

    Re: FS: Phase One IQ3 100

    Just FYI but an IQ3100 is worth $25k against an IQ4150 upgrade in the US so if you were thinking about getting an IQ4150 this would be a bargain discount purchase opportunity.

    Still available, but am now considering keeping hold of it.

    I'll give it two more weeks, if it's not sold by September 14th, I'll be withdrawing it from sale.

    Now or never folks!

    Kind regards,

    I can't imagine this still being available as the 3100 is such an outstanding DB and will be so many years from now. There really is no sense giving away this wonderful back which is close to brand new.

    Best.......

    Thanks Victor - couldn't agree more. At the end of the day if there isn't really a viable market for these at a price I'm willing to let it go for, then I'm sure I will be able to find a use for it in the future.

    Hmm... I wonder what it would cost to have it converted to an Achromatic...

    Kind regards,


    Gerald.

    The IQ3 100 Achromatic is the best best back I have ever used for B&W period! I have absolutely no desire to upgrade. Go for it Gerald, I'm sure CI or others can arrange for a swap or something ;-)

    Just in case any others were wondering about this, a conversion is not possible. They can only do an up/crossgrade for 9,000 Euros.

    Not many data points on the used market. There was one that sold on eBay with ~200 exposures and a couple years left on the warranty for ~16k on eBay 2-3 weeks ago in the US. There’s another for sale for ~30k with make an offer that has sat for weeks.

    Not sure what they’re running from dealers currently though. I’m hoping to pick up an achromatic back at some point myself.

    Hope it all ends well for you. The buyer is getting a great back at a great price. Must be a little bitter sweet but sometimes financial decisions are.
