If you’re ready to take your photography to an entirely new echelon — the highest resolution possible — then look no further than Phase One’s latest camera system, and bring your checkbook. The IQ4 is the new digital back that attaches to Phase One’s XF camera body and offers an astronomical 151 megapixels for a cool $52,000 in one system.

Danish camera maker Phase One is largely responsible for the digital transition to medium-format photography, and their Sony-built sensor (53.4x40mm) has more than two-and-a-half times the surface area of most full-frame competitors. The only other camera to come close in sensor size is the Hasselblad H6-400C MS, but their 100MP offering is significantly smaller. Adding to the impressive sensor, the IQ4 boasts an upgraded image-processing chip that’s 10 times faster than its IQ3 predecessor. The increased speed allowed the company to build Phase One’s Capture One photo-editing software into the camera, granting photographers a preview that’s so close to the finished product it will cut expensive time on shoots with a large staff and demanding clients who want instant photo approval.
