Mamiya DM22


$9,995.00 Released November, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very low price for a medium format camera, one of the cheapest available. Uses true 16 bit per channel RAW files ensuring as little loss as possible. 12 separate f-stops give it a great dynamic range.

The Cons:Works with Compact Flash cards which are a bit harder to find.

The Mamiya DM22 is a professional level, medium-format DSLR. This camera is designed for photographers looking for a step-up from smaller 35mm-based DSLRs. Compared to the DM28, this camera features a larger image sensor (48 x 36mm), but a smaller pixel count (5356 x 4056) and a shallower ISO range (25 - 400).
