"In fashion photography, speed is equally important to image quality so our main priority has been to combine the two, an unparalleled image quality and a fast capture rate. We have succeeded in obtaining a sustained capture rate of 45 frames/min., which is faster than working with film. On top of this, the image quality is superb.

By bringing the P 30 back to the market, Phase One has managed to overcome another recurring and very well-known obstacle in the fashion and portrait market – the presence of color Moiré in especially hair and fabrics.

About Phase One
Phase One was founded in 1993 by a Danish inventor, who was, at that time, manufacturer of drum scanners for the pre-press industry. To him it was obvious that the ultimate method of digitizing an image would be to capture it directly by means of a camera and thereby completely eliminate the use of film. In 1994 Phase One was acquired by one of the leading venture capital companies in Denmark. Today ownership is divided between Phase One employees and 5 venture capital companies, one of which is Kirkbi, associated with the LEGO Group, the world renowned manufacturer of children’s toys. Phase One’s head office is located in Copenhagen, Denmark. We also have a subsidiary, located in Long Island, NY, USA, to support our dealer network in USA and Canada as well as two regional offices which are situated in Cologne, Germany, and in Shanghai, China respectively.
