The Pros:Highly flexible operation, can be used in a wide range of settings. Feels robust and well made, nice balance. LCD is big and bright with great detail, makes setting up a shot more fun.
The Cons:Hard to reach the Auto exposure lock button, it's in an odd space. In bright light outdoors its hard to see the LCD.

The DM56 packs a large 56 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.
