Leaf America is giving away the Mamiya 645 AFDII medium format camera free of charge (a $2,990 value) to buyers of the new Leaf Aptus 75, 65, or 22 back, or the Aptus S equivalent in Mamiya AFD mount. Thatâ€™s right, you buy the digital back and the camera is free.
You will also be entitled to an automatic upgrade to a new AFDIII at no charge when it becomes available in June.
The company said the new Mamiya 645AFDIII offers significant improvements over the previous model, including faster and quieter autofocus operation thanks to a unique powerful coreless motor, variable user selectable focus points (center, left and right), and improved internal electronic communication with Leaf backs.
The new camera also offers 2nd curtain sync for flash photography, electronic buttons to control metering modes and exposure compensation, and accepts alkaline-magnesium or lithium batteries as well as nickel-hydrogen AA batteries.
