The Achromatic+ digital back is a purely black and white, 39-million pixel digital back designed for the capture of light in it’s purest form. There is no Bayer pattern on the sensor, which means it never separates the light into colors and subsequently there is  zero color interpolation.

    Details are captured with unparalleled clarity and accuracy, and the possibilities for the control we once had are now present again. Each pixel records what it sees; no more, no less, and without the interference of color information.

Return to your  roots  with the Achromatic+

The definition of black and white imagery.

The Achromatic+ integrates seamlessly with all major medium format, large format, and technical camera systems... meaning you can once again shoot with your favorite camera... or build a completely new system.
