Mamiya Debuts DM22 Camera - PPA Today

Mamiya Debuts DM22 Camera

Mamiya has introduced a new 22MP, 36x48mm digital camera selling for $9,995. The Mamiya DM22 is the perfect choice for photographers when 35mm-sized DSLRs are not good enough. In fashion work, studio product photography, industrial/scientific or other demanding photographic specialties, medium format photography is in many people's eyes hands-down the winner over 35mm-based digital. The DM22 is the affordable way to achieve that superiority. This new camera features a premium-quality 22 megapixel sensor, and true 16bit/channel RAW files. Files can be processed using either of the included software solutions: Capture Oneâ„¢ by Phase One or Leaf Captureâ„¢, or photographers can choose to use Adobe Lightroom.

The new camera is being introduced at the same time as the Mamiya DM28, with a street price of $14,990.  Both cameras come with the sharp Mamiya 80mm f/2.8 D Series lens, focal plane shutter, and are fully compatible with any Mamiya AF focal plane series lens. In addition, they can be used with older 645MF and Hasselblad lenses (via #310-244 adapter), both in stop-down mode. The DM22 features a 48x36mm sensor, 5356x4056 pixels, and an ISO range of 25-400. The RAW file is the Mosaic format, HDR-type, with 16 bits/channel and a dynamic range of 12 f/stops. Image storage is either on a CF card or via FireWireâ„¢. The DM28 is identical except its sensor is 44x33mm, 6144x4622 pixels, and an ISO range of 50-800.
