Mamiya to Showcase 22MP ZDb Digital Back at Photokina 2008

Mamiya  22MP ZDb Digital Back

The Mamiya ZDb 22 megapixel Digital Back will debut at next week’s Photokina 2008. The company, Mamiya Digital Imaging, says the new digital back offers several useful enhancements.

Mamiya said to allow longer shooting sessions, the ZDb will have a buffer with up to twice the memory of the original ZD Digital Back – this means that you can continuously shoot up to 22 frames of full resolution RAW files before the buffer is full. The new back is now compatible with SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards that can store up to 32 gigabytes of images. The Mamiya ZDb Digital Back can also use SD, SDHC, CF I and CF II cards.

When used with the new Mamiya 645AFDIII, the ZDb Back will display the camera’s 35 custom function controls on the LCD panel. This will make custom camera settings fast and user-friendly.

The 22-megapixel Mamiya ZDb Digital Back will ship in the fall of 2008. No word on pricing yet, but Mamiya says it will be affordable.
