Mamiya Leaf Introduces the Leaf Credo Medium Format Digital Camera Back Platform
A leading provider of medium format camera equipment has designed a new medium format digital camera back platform.
Mamiya Leaf's Leaf Credo is available in three different models, the Leaf Credo 80, Credo 60, and Credo 40 and feature high-quality resolutions of 80, 60 and 40 megapixels respectively.
Key platform features include:
- A large, high resolution (1.15 megapixel), multi-touch screen with excellent rendition of 16 million colors for quick and easy verification of focus and tonal accuracy;
- Fast, new dual-core microprocessor enables powerful performance for the fastest available image viewing, focusing and editing;
- A new, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) offers easy navigation and extends the touch screen beyond the LCD area -- letting you navigate and click outside the image area;
- New FireWire 800 and USB3 implementation delivers fastest image transfer speeds.
The flagship of the Leaf Credo platform is a full-frame 80 MP CCD sensor with a dynamic range of 12.5 f-stops. New to Mamiya Leaf is a full frame 60 MP CCD sensor with 3:4 aspect ratio providing unmatched detail, richness of color, low noise and beautiful tonality. Also available is the 40 MP CCD sensor which offers the fastest capture speed in the Leaf Credo platform at 1.2 frames per second.
Leaf Credo also delivers high-resolution Live View functionality for precise focusing when shooting un-tethered. It also offers a wide viewing angle and a built-in bi-directional spirit level.
The Mamiya Leaf open platform philosophy enables compatibility with other medium format camera bodies as well as Mamiya models and all the Leaf Credo digital backs are optimised for shooting with Capture One software.
Pricing for the Leaf Credo 40 starts at € 14,995/$19,495. The Leaf Credo 60 is listed at €24,995/$32,495 and the Leaf Credo 80 for € 29,995/$38,995. Shipping is planned for June, 2012.
