Mamiya DM33


$19,990.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Extremely responsive touchscreen, more comparable to a smartphone than typical digital cameras. Excellent histogram review function, displays exposure errors with colour-coded system. Image processing time is faster than competing high-end models (e.g. Leica).

The Cons:LCD display is poorer than expected for evaluating images on the fly, mainly due to it being a touchscreen; lacks resolution and colour accuracy. Somewhat complicated/time-consuming navigation is not well-suited for fast action or spots shots.

The Mamiya DM33 is a high-end, professional DSLR camera for photographers looking for a significant step up from LEICA, Canon and Nikon options. Compared to the DM40, this camera features a lower pixel count (6726 x 5040), but a larger sensor (48 x 36mm) and ISO range (50 - 800).

Product Shot 2 The DM33 features a large 33 megapixel sensor matched with high-end optics technology and a 16bit/channel color palette to produce what is widely considered to be top-notch color accuracy. On the back, users will find a 3.3” color LCD touchscreen. This Mamiya camera comes with a “DF” core, meaning photographers have the choice between two shutter systems; leaf or focal plane. The leaf system enables high speed flash synchronization, which can be helpful for those who encounter difficult daylight situations. Photograph files can be stored on either a CF card, or a tethered computer via FireWire. Compatible processing software includes Capture One, Leaf Capture and Adobe Lightroom.
