Mamiya 33MP studio camera

Digital studio-grade photo camera maker Mamiya on Tuesday announced the upcoming release of its DL33 medium format camera. Reflecting its namesake and role, it has a 33-megapixel sensor sized at 36x48mm, or about twice the size of conventional full-frame DSLR cameras, with each pixel sized at 7.2 microns. The camera also has a 3.5-inch touchscreen, which Mamiya claims is the largest in the industry, and offers a high contrast for outdoor shooting.

The DL33 is made up of Mamiya's 645AFD III camera system with the Aptus-II 7 Digital Back from Leaf. The body's coreless motor providers faster and more precise autofocus functionality while interfacing with the lens and digital back. The Aptus II 7 back can shoot at 1 frame per second if using the fastest CompactFlash cards on the market.

The combination can produce 67MB RAW images that can then be converted into JPEG or 8-bit and 16-bit TIFF images.

The DL33 ships with Leaf Capture 11.2 software for editing images and will become available in April, priced at nearly $20,000. [via PhotographyBlog]
