COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, (June 27, 2023) — Phase One has announced the XC Camera, purpose built for travel photographers who demand the finest in image quality. Designed for convenience, the XC is Phase One’s most compact digitally integrated camera to date.

“We’ve designed the XC Camera to be a companion camera,” said Drew Altdoerffer, VP of Digitization, Phase One. “With its compact size, operational simplicity, and super wide angle of view, the XC Camera can be always by your side and at the ready. You can carry the camera anywhere to capture anything at any time, recording inspiration as it strikes.”

The XC Camera combines Phase One’s IQ4 150MP power and performance (built on a true full-frame medium format digital sensor of the highest quality) with a fully integrated Rodenstock HR Digaron-S 23mm f/5.6 lens.

The XC prioritizes unparalleled image quality in a simplified and compact design. It is conveniently sized and remarkably intuitive to use. Crafted for straightforward operation, the Phase One XC frees the photographer to focus on capturing the moment, less on camera settings.

“The compelling thing about the XC is that all I have to do is reach into my equipment rack and pack it into the smallest of bags, and I'm ready for any photographic adventure,” said Thomas Biasotto, Professional Photographer, Alpinist and Author

Phase One’s ability to dedicate camera designs to the demands and desires of a specific application makes the blend of sensible Danish design, advanced technology integration, exceptional image quality, and precision mechanics a superior foundation for the travel photographer.
