Mamiya, manufacturer of professional medium format cameras, lenses and accessories, has just announced the latest addition to their lineup of professional large-sensor DSLRs, the DM40.
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.
Mamiya claims that there are two user-selectable shutter systems: leaf or focal plane. The lenses are available in focal lengths of 55mm, 80mm, and 110mm – deliver an effective maximum flash sync speed of up to 1/1600th of a second. Sadly, the LCD screen is only 6×7cm, but it’s a touchscreen at least.
Awesome right? Price check? $21,990, which includes a Mamiya 80mm f.2.8 lens. I think I will pass. I can think of better ways to spend that amount right now.
