COMPACT ∙ SIMPLE ∙ ELEGANT
The breathtaking quality of the images from an XT Camera System are sure to impress and inspire others. Phase One sets the standard for image quality in medium format, so your photography will stand out.
The XT Camera System is designed for convenience and engineered for precision. The exclusive, high-quality finishes of each system are given individual care, resulting in a camera that is desired as much for its beauty as for its image quality.
The XT Camera System emphasizes a modular and travel- friendly design that fits easily into your lifestyle. The form and aesthetic underline the system’s priorities as a new breed of camera, masterfully designed for portability without sacrificing quality.
Turning a new page in the history of the field camera, the XT delivers full digital integration and intuitive, easy-to- master operation. Meticulous attention has been given to fine details and usability features, elevating your shooting experience.
The XT Camera System is designed to expand and evolve. With the brains of the IQ4 Infinity Platform and the heart of the X-Shutter, the integration and features of the XT support limitless potential for even simpler use. The XT is a camera system that is extraordinary now and is poised to get even better with age.
The XT Camera System takes full advantage of the Rodenstock optics with 24mm of total shift range on both X and Y axes (12mm up, down, left, or right). These movements allow you to correct for perspective distortion or create panoramic and stitched images quickly and precisely. The shift position of the camera is integrated into the image file providing immediate feedback for later use. Additionally, the design of the XT allows you to quickly rotate the camera between portrait and landscape orientation while remaining securely mounted to a tripod via an integrated Arca Swiss-type mount, further expanding the integrated workflow.
At the heart of the XT – Rodenstock HR lenses is the X-Shutter. The X-Shutter is an intelligently integrated and electronically controlled shutter, born out of Phase One’s industrial applications and experience. The X-Shutter is purpose-built for the XT Camera System to allow for finer control in a smaller form factor. Powered by the IQ4, the X-Shutter shares in the ambition of the Infinity Platform for future growth and flexibility.
