Mamiya announces DM40 Medium Format Camera

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).
