Phase One iXA Camera System

The Phase One iXA aerial camera system is an integrated medium format camera system that was designed from the ground up exclusively for aerial photography.
Developed with leading experts and engineers in the field, the iXA is built to meet the specific needs of aerial photography and to streamline the entire capture and processing workflow. The camera is a major addition to the current aerial implementations that Phase One already provides to partners in the industry.

With a choice of 60 megapixel or 80 megapixel models, the iXA is designed to easily incorporate into new or existing systems, making it the perfect solution for integrators or end users looking for a rugged, high-quality industrial-grade aerial camera system. The medium format solution offers exceptional features and image quality that rivals large-format cameras, at a fraction of the price.

The Phase One iXA camera, built as an integrated system, offers high dynamic range and detailed image quality that only high resolution, medium format systems can produce. The iXA, combined with either Schneider-Kreuznach fast sync lenses with internal electronically controlled leaf shutters or Phase One digital lenses, guarantees the image quality expected from a dedicated aerial photography camera. The lenses, which are easily changed in the field, have special lens holders attached to them to secure them to the camera, ensuring edge to edge sharpness across the sensor.

Images are captured as fast as one per second and are processed using one of several Phase One software solutions that can also enhance the images and perform file correction on the raw images to further enhance their quality.


Built as a modular system, the iXA provides the flexibility to perform under a variety of conditions, making it a natural choice for integration into large or small configurations.
Ultimate Image Sharpness
Phase One has an extensive array of lenses, including Schneider-Kreuznach fast sync and digital lenses.
Dynamic Range
Phase One digital technology makes a 72 db (12.5 f-stops) dynamic range possible and enables the capture of details that might normally have been lost in extreme shadows or highlights.
Excellent Color & Detail
Advanced algorithms provided by Phase One's software combined with DALSA CCD sensors guarantee faithful recording of even the smallest details.
