Last week we had the Mamiya DM 56 digital back in the studio for demo. Below is a initial post from instructor and photographer David Saffir from that demo. Within the next week or so, David will post a full on review of the Mamiya package. For additional information on David Saffir, please head to his blog http://davidsaffir.wordpress.com/
I just received a demo unit of the latest Mamiya medium format camera body and the DM 56 digital back. I’ve already completed one studio shoot, and I plan to be shooting with the camera for the next several days. Look for a review of the camera and Leaf software early next week.
This is a shot of Mel Carll, of SCV Center for Photography, working with the Mamiya in-studio. We’re using a Calumet product table, and a number of studio strobe units. The camera is tethered via Firewire to a Mac Book Pro, running the latest version of Leaf Capture. Note the large on-screen preview, histogram, and other tools. A number of photographers came to the studio for the camera and software hands-on demo, conducted by Dan Cuny of Mamiya/MAC group. More on this setup soon!
