Mamiya Launches ZD Medium Format DSLR

Darren wrote this 2:15 am:

First announced way back in September 2004, the Mamiya ZD is finally now available.

The ZD is a 22 megapixel medium format digital SLR with a 48mm x 36mm CCD sensor. It is compatible with 645AF lenses and uses Compact Flash (CF type I and II) and Secure Digital (SD) memory cards. An interesting feature is the removable low-pass filter over the CCD.

The retail price is £7000 for the body only (excluding VAT), which equates to approximately USD$12,100.

There will also be a 22 megapixel Mamiya ZD digital back, designed for the Mamiya 645AFD and the New RZ67 Pro IID medium format cameras.

Michael Reichmann from The Luminous Landscape is collecting Notes From Here And There on the Mamiya ZD, since Mamiya America isn’t very forthcoming with information.

DP Review has the ZD press release and specifications.
