The Mamiya DL28 Digital Camera System offers 28 Megapixels with a large
sensor with a pixel size of 7.2 microns, producing images with
unmatched richness and color accuracy, low noise, and striking
highlight and shadow detail. Its 3.5-inch (diagonal) screen is said to be the
largest in the industry and offers a bright, high-contrast touch
screen that is ideal for outdoor or indoor work.
The DL28 marries the professionally proven Mamiya camera system to the
innovative 28 megapixel Aptus-II 6 Digital Back from Leaf - a system
capable of unrivaled performance, image quality and value. The 645AFD
III body has a new coreless motor for faster, more accurate
autofocusing and an enhanced interface system that provides total
communication between the camera, lens and digital back. The 645AFD
III and Leaf Aptus-II 6 Digital Back work as an integral unit so
you'll never miss the action.

With 16-bit capture, 12 stop dynamic range and an ISO range of 50-800,
the Mamiya DL28 is a full featured professional digital solution that
allows photographers to focus on creating the image and not worrying
about the technology. The 28 MP back provides raw files of 53Mb, and
16 bit TIFF files in excess of 159 Mb - ensuring that you'll have the
information needed for virtually any size reproduction.

Compact flash media storage makes it easy to shoot untethered on
location or in the studio. You can also use the included firewire
cable and Leaf Capture 11.2 software to shoot directly to your
computer. And the latest Leaf Capture software allows other people -
in the field or in the studio - to view your creativity on their
iPhones as you continue shooting!

The Mamiya DL28 will be available November 2008.
MAP price is $14,999.

The Leica X1 looks like an analog camera. It has a compact body with a high quality finish and offers two setup dials on the top. If both dials are set to A-mode the camera will set aperture and shutter speed value automatically. If the photographer changes the aperture setting manually to a value between f2,8 and f16 the camera will work in aperture priority mode and set up shutter speed automatically. Similarly, a change of the shutter speed dial and setting the aperture-dial to A will switch the Leica X1 into “shutter speed priority mode. It’s a very efficient and easy system. The camera doesn’t offer any scene modes.

The X1 is Leica’s newest compact camera. It is based on an APS-C-sized image sensor and a lens system with fixed focal length with 36mm (35mm film equivalent). The camera has a small and compact body, offers easy handling and creates very crisp images.
