Mamiya Digital Imaging has announced the next model of their digital
back –called the Mamiya ZDb 22 megapixel Digital Back –will be
shown at Photokina 2008. 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 32GB 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. T

In addition, a beta version of the new Mamiya Remote Capture software
will soon be downloadable from the Mamiya home page
( The software is designed to make shooting
tethered with the Mamiya ZDb Back faster and easier.

The camera boasts a 22-mega pixel Dalsa CCD sensor. Pricing and
delivery will be announced in the fall.
