Phase One is a Danish company specializing in high-end digital photography equipment and software. It manufactures open platform based medium format camera systems and solutions. Their own RAW processing software, Capture One, supports many DSLRs besides their backs.

PODAS workshops (Phase One Digital Artist Series) is a series of worldwide photography workshops designed for digital photographers interested in working with medium format, high-resolution cameras. PODAS is a part of the Phase One educational division. Each attendee receives a Phase One digital camera system for the duration of the workshop.[2]

On 18 February 2014 it was announced that UK-based private equity firm Silverfleet Capital would acquire a 60% majority stake in the company.[3]



In 2009, Phase One purchased a major stake in Japanese Mamiya and the two companies develop products together.
