Mamiya Announces DM40

Mamiya has just announced a new large-sensor D-SLR, the DM40. With a resolution of 40MP and a peak capture rate of 0.8 seconds per frame, the DM40 will be available for $21,990 this month. Read the full press release below.

From Mamiya:

Elmsford, NY – March 1, 2010 – Mamiya today announced the addition of the new Mamiya DM40 to its lineup of professional large-sensor DSLRs. Featuring a resolution of 40 megapixels with a peak capture rate of .8 seconds per frame and a sustained capture rate of 60 frames per minute, the Mamiya DM40 is the industry’s fastest large-sensor DSLR.

The heart of the DM40 system is the new “DF” camera-core technology, developed by Mamiya, featuring two user-selectable shutter systems: leaf or focal plane. In demanding daylight situations, photographers can use predictable high speed flash synchronization to fill-in or overpower even the brightest ambient light on one of three new leaf-shuttered lenses designed by Schneider-Kreuznach and manufactured by Mamiya. The lenses – available in focal lengths of 55mm, 80mm, and 110mm – deliver an effective maximum flash sync speed of up to 1/1600th of a second. For more conventional situations, photographers can choose any one of 15 other world-class Mamiya optics, from 28mm to 300mm APO, designed for use with the cameras’ focal plane shutter system.

Also newly announced, the Mamiya DM40 Digital Back will be available for those customers who wish to obtain the latest in high-speed and resolution digital capture for their existing Mamiya or large format camera. Supported cameras include: Mamiya 645AFD series, 645DF, Mamiya RZ series (via optional adapter), Mamiya RB series (via optional adapter), and 4×5 view cameras (via optional adapter).

Apps for the Apple iPhone®, especially those designed specifically for photographers, have proven incredibly creative and useful.  One that has been welcomed by studio photographers is Mamiya’s Leaf Capture Remote for the new Mamiya DM system. This app transforms an Apple iPhone® or iPod® Touch into a remove image viewer.

This is the first application to permit real-time, on-set remote viewing of medium format images, enabling instant feedback on any shot.

Now, while the photographer is shooting in a tethered mode, other people on set – the creative director, client, stylist, etc. – can watch via a standard Wi-Fi network, without hindering the movement of the photographer or crowding around one monitor. The images are hi-res and the software allows viewers to pan and zoom using their compatible Apple device.

Leaf Capture Remote application version 1.0 is free and available now for download from Apple’s iPhone App Store. It supports any Mamiya DM or DL medium format digital system.  Additional information on installation and setup of the server application is available through the Leaf Capture software link at www.Mamiya.com.

The Mamiya DM system of DSLR kits and Digital Backs offers photographers the ultimate in big-sensor image quality at very affordable prices. With models offering 22, 28, 33, and 56 megapixels, the Mamiya DM system continues to make Mamiya the brand of choice for today’s top professional photographers.
