Mamiya has recently launched the new 645AFD II, which seamlessly supports both film and digital capture all in one camera system and incorporates the latest auto focusing technology. In addition to a faster, more sensitive focus response, the camera offers a selective spot or wide focus area within its "I + I" CCD focus pattern sensor array. Single, continuous and manual focus overrides are available as shooting situations change.

Its latest MSC (Mamiya Serial Communication) data transfer technology is built in to the new 645AFD II and compatible with Phase One, Imacon and Leaf Aptus and Valeo digital backs. All critical exposure and shooting information is internally exchanged between the camera and compatible digital camera backs.

The camera includes a 3.5-inch screen and features 36 custom functions. Individual camera preferences such as 1/3, 1/2 or full aperture/shutter speed increments, flash synch speed, dial functions, exposure compensation increments, bracketing sequence, dial direction setting and more are easily set and recalled. In addition, separate user configurations can be set and recalled on-the-fly when several photographers are using the same camera.

Dedicated "Quick Action" buttons have also been designed into the 645AFD II for fast activation of such functions as multiple exposures, auto-bracketing, key lock, auto exposure lock and auto focus lock.

The minimum advertised price for the body only is $2,299; and $3,999 with the 80mm f2.8 lens and back.
