Shooting fashion with the XF IQ4 Camera System

To test the wifi tethering feature in the XF IQ4 Camera System, we asked Yulia to put the camera through its paces on a real fashion and beauty shoot. Read about the project here.



I had used the Phase One camera system before and loved it, so I was excited to test the new features of the IQ4, which proved to be beyond amazing. I enjoyed using the product naturally, as I would with my typical workflow. For this shoot, I wanted to keep it simple and show the natural beauty of the model’s face – stunning freckles and sky-blue eyes. I know that the Trichromatic really excels with these details and I wanted to make sure to let the model’s features shine.

I was amazed with the image quality – that brought my work to the next level. The images suddenly felt like 3D paintings. The color doesn’t need much of post editing, it already has the required richness and saturation. I also like that I can look at an image, walk away from it, and see something different when I come back to it.
