Rate & Review

Blending the best of Phase One and ALPA technology through highly-integrated precision components, Phase One A280 Camera System is designed to capture outstanding images with greater ease, convenience, and fun. The Phase One A-series is based on the ALPA 12TC mirrorless camera body, plus a Phase One medium format IQ2 Aseries digital back. Each model comes with the 35mm Rodenstock Alpar lens. There are two optional lenses available, including the ultra-wide 23mm, and the all-round 70mm, ALPA HR Alpagon, both offering perfect edge-to-edge sharpness and the ability to resolve full frame medium format sensors. Exclusive to the Phase One A-series are the models' factory configured in-camera lens calibrations, making the need to create and apply color cast correction profiles (LCCs) optional. One can simply attach an A-series lens and start shooting.

The A 280 Rodenstock Alpagon/Alpar lens profiles are factory calibrated, configured and preloaded on the new IQ2 A-series digital backs to get the most out of each medium format sensor. Using the new firmware and A-series camera mode, photographers simply select the lens used and corrections are then automatically processed in camera and when importing to Capture One Pro 8.1. A new version of Capture Pilot permits checking the selected A-lens directly from an iOS device. Once images are captured, they are wirelessly displayed in Capture Pilot, to validate focus, exposure and composition. The A280 can stream Live View wirelessly to ease focusing and composition. With the ALPA smart device holder, one can mount both iPhones and iPads directly on the camera. For optimal raw processing and image editing, the Phase One A-Series systems ship with Capture One Pro 8.1 as well as Capture Pilot 1.8 for remote viewing. Camera accessories include: release cables, lens shades, straps, covers, a special A-series transport case designed by F-Stop Gear, and an iPhone and iPad holder to attach devices in waist-level mode.

  • Each system will be individually configured with pre-loaded lens calibrations for Rodenstock ALPA 23mm, 35mm and 70mm lenses, making it easy to shoot great looking images out of the box.
  • Factory shimmed system marked with A-series badges on both body and back.
  • All systems will come with the required accessories -- including some new elements made specifically for this system, e.g. flexible lens shades, iPhone holder and new release cable.
  • A 5-year warranty on the system.
  • Phase One IQ280 camera systems have recently started supporting liveview over wi-fi using Capture Pilot 1.7 (which is already available for download to all IQ280 users). Liveview over wi-fi will also be a cool new feature for the CMOS based A280 using an upcoming 1.8 release.
