Mamiya ZD Medium Format Camera

Mamiya has announced a medium format digital camera: The Mamaya ZD, as well as a camera back: The Mamiya ZD Back.

Medium format is the preferred solution for many professional photographers, having a wider field of view and larger more detailed pictures than regular 35mm film.

This concept translates equally well to digital cameras: The Mamiya ZD has a 36x48mm 22 Megapixel Full Frame RGB Square-structured CCD sensor compared to the 17x13mm sensor of the Olympus E300, or the 24x16mm sensor of the Nikon DX2 SLR Digital Cameras.

The Mamiya ZD is expected to cost over $10,000 so it is strictly for serious professional photographers.
