Mamiya Announces $20,000 DM40 Medium Format Camera


It takes a true passion for photography and a deep wallet to plunk down $20,000 for a digital camera, and if you have both, Mamiya will happily oblige with its newly announced DM40 medium format DSLR camera

As evidenced by the price tag ($19,990 for the digital back, or $21,990 for the camera and 80mm f/2.8 lens), the DM40 fits into Mamiya's lineup of professional large-sensor DSLRs. What you get in return is a 40 megapixel camera capable of shooting 60 frames per minutes (yes, minute), which makes it the fastest in this class of sensor.

You'll also find CompactFlash storage support, FireWire, 3.5-inch touchscreen, 80-800 ISO sensitivity, a user-selectable shutter system (leaf or focal plane), high-speed flash synchronization, and other odds and ends.
