FS: Phase One IQ3 100mp ***FINAL REDUCTION***

Hey there,

Upgraded to an IQ4 about a year ago and this hasn't been seeing a lot of action since. I shoot product / tabletop 98% of the time so it's never really left the studio before. It has 26.1k shots on it and cosmetically I'd say about a 8.5/10 with some small marks around the sharp edge. Sensor has a couple specks of dust, nothing a quick cleaning can't handle.

Included in the sale:

1x Phase One IQ3 100mp digital back XF/Mamiya Mount
4x batteries
1x charger
1x small phase one hard case

Asking for 9.5K USD 8,750 USD 8,500USD + Direct Wire (PayPal if you have good references) + shipping (US and CA only for now)

I'm in no rush to sell it so low ball offers will be ignored. I am open to trades for only Leica M11 or modern Rosenstock digital lenses.

Thanks for looking!


NOTE* This will be listed in many other platforms.

Nice product shot!! What light source and modifier? Love the perfect angle!
Thank you,

Super simple set up. Broncolor Pulso Spot (key) and 1x Pulso G4 head shooting through a 6x6 frame with a 2 stop silk overhead. Gives you fill + pretty gradients.

Cheers
Will

This is now even lower than my asking price for my IQ3-100!

The IQ3-100 is still a great DB, even in early '23 it's only surpassed by the IQ4-150.
Haha yeah it’s dry out here. You’re right, the IQ3 100 is still one of the most solid DBs out there.

If you think about, five years ago people paid $50K for it.

I thought that there was a general consensus that $9K for the IQ3-100 and $18K for the IQ4-150! But if no demand.

Will be interesting to see how the HB CFV-100c will be priced.

With the introduction of 100MB mirrorless Fujifilm and Hasselblad cameras, there are now more modern, better priced alternatives to the "mirror" PhaseOne XF, which now is also conceptually obsolete. The "other" PhaseOne, PhaseOne XT, is a technical camera (built around the Cambo WRS platform), really only of interest to technical camera users, but then is too compromised (limited shift, tilt only one axis) for many such users!

This may be largely responsible for the collapse of the demand (even at knockdown price) of PhaseOne equipment.

Notwithstanding, the IQ3-100, with useful "live-view" and electronic shutter, priced competitively at $8K or so, should be a great upgrade over any earlier DBs.

My two (uninvited) cents!

Oh, I meant as in the great options recently released by Fuji and Hasselblad.
Yes, I know. I wrote something very similar just a few posts ago. I just tried to be funny/witty in regarding to PhaseOne.

I assume PhaseOne is waiting for Sony to release a sensor capable of "global shutter".

Taking about "global shutter", has been my experience that the "rolling shutter" of the IQ3-100 is not an issue for landscape & seascape photography. Waves and moving clouds never caused any noticeable "rolling shutter" artifacts. This has also been the experience of other photographers.
