Phase One iXM series

iXM-100 | iXM-50

A revolution in UAV and drone cameras

Cutting-edge medium format technology engineered for UAV-based imaging missions. The iXM 100MP and 50MP cameras incorporate medium format sensors with backside illumination (BSI) technology for improved highlight sensitivity and dynamic range. Phase One iXM cameras are fast, highly responsive, and robust and are available with a range of high-resolution lenses from 35mm to 300mm. The iXM cameras are easily integrated with UAVs for diverse inspection and mapping applications.

 

A breakthrough camera platform

The iXM 100MP and iXM 50MP are high productivity metric cameras with a range of specially designed RSM lenses. The iXM cameras are ready for easy integration with a wide range of UAV platforms. The cameras deliver superior quality aerial imaging and flexible operation for diverse applications.

The 50MP sensor enables the capture of high-accuracy images and addresses the needs of smaller-scale mapping and inspection missions.

RSM lenses for iXM cameras

Five Phase One RSM lenses, with focal lengths ranging from 35mm to 300mm AF, were specifically created to fit the pixel and sensor size of the iXM cameras, while maintaining sharpness across the image. The lenses have high optical resolution, offering new uses for both inspection and mapping applications. The lenses’ integrated leaf shutter offers high capture speed for an array of flight conditions.

Phase One RS Shutter

The shutter in RSM Lenses for the iXM Series uses an innovative direct drive concept with electronic charging that enhances exposure speed as fast as 1/2500s, and life of over 500,000 exposures – a record breaking capture rate and life span longer than ever seen before.

The reliance and exceptional performances of the RS shutter enables faster flying, and allows customers to execute and manage the most demanding aerial photography missions with higher operational efficiency, reliability, and in a cost effective manner.
