Extreme sports photography with Stefan Schlumpf

Extreme sports photographer Stefan Schlumpf captured dare-devil world record holding highliner, Stephan Siegrist, in the unique location of Martinsloch in Switzerland. Watch the video documenting Stefan’s highline shoot for a dose of extreme sport inspiration.   Driving home from Zurich to Chur one day, Stefan thought about capturing the extreme in a unique location. Martinsloch is the biggest hole on a mountain-side in Switzerland. Twice a year the sun shines directly through the mountainside hole, onto the church of Elm. He wanted to break new grounds with extreme sports photography. For the shoot, he used the Phase One XF 100MP Camera System and Blue Ring lenses: “I used a 35mm and 55mm lens for the highline images.

As a result, you get outstanding overall sharpness and virtually distortion-free images.” Explore the products mentioned in this story:

But sometimes the last thing you would think about doing is the only thing you can do to get the shot.” “These giant icebergs were just begging to be photographed from the water’s surface so I ignored the sensible part of my consciousness and got as close to the water as I could. With the Waistlevel Finder on the XF IQ3 100MP it was a breeze to get the composition I needed and with the 35mm lens providing me astounding detail and contrast, these ship-sized ice cubes …

First experience with the XF Camera System

Christopher Mertz shared his first impressions when he tried out the XF 100MP Camera System. “For me, Phase One is the top choice if you’re looking to change your DSLR to medium format. With fantastic image quality, 16-bit files, depth of field that can’t be compared to any other camera out there, and a ton of useful time-saving features, Phase One makes the decision an easy one.” “… This was my first time using the XF, and I was hugely surprised by the performance and overall experience of using the camera. There are so many features to play with, but a few really stood out.” “As a Profoto user, the fact that the XF IQ3 100MP Camera System has a built-in integration with Profoto Air is a very useful and utterly cool detail. It made lighting changes during the shoot simple and fast.” 16-bit color depth “You also get 16-bit color depth to play with, which means you can reach a whole new level of accurate color reproduction. The colors in the files are unlike any …
