Review 1 for Phase One IQ140 Digital Back with Hasselblad V Mount plus Value Added Pack
Lives up to the hype!
PostedJune 29, 2012
from Evanston, IL
I recently purchased the IQ140 for Hasselblad V system. I have been shooting constantly since on a 503CW, 553ELX, and even a Calumet 45N with a sing back adapter. All I can say is this back has completely lived up to my own expectations, and all of the Phase One hype.
A few of the high points:
1) Extremely rigid construction. 2) Extermely simple to use...touch screen, very intuitive operating steps, beautiful display on the back 3) Rapid workflow when shooting tethered (I personally love Capture One), but also very useful when shooting un-tethered.
If you happen to have invested a lot of money in V system bodies and lenses, you're in luck if you want a glorious back for this system. Have had very little issue with sync cable communication to the back when using CFe lenses (the locking sync post comes in handy here). Even with CF lenses though, very low rate of error.
When shooting with the 553ELX, using supplied cable, can even trigger the shutter from within Capture One (great for static studio setups).
Also works wonderfully on my view camera with swing adapter back and dual-trigger cable.
As probably expected, Anything above ISO 200 is seriously less usable than ISO 50, 100, 200...but your mileage may vary. I found all of the sensor+ modes to be less than satisfactory for my work, but I didn't buy the back for high ISO performance. I bought it for achieving sublime images in the studio under controlled lighting, and it delivers. All in all, definitely worth the money. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Pros: Excellent Image Quality, Simple Controls/Menu, Sharp Tone/Color, Great Battery Life, Quick Start-up Time, Easy Computer Connectivity
