Mamiya Leaf 645DF+ Overview

  • 1Description

Combining a revised sensor design with tested functionality, the Credo 50 Digital Back Kit from Mamiya Leaf pairs the 50MP CMOS sensor digital back with the 645DF+ medium format camera body and the Schneider Kreuznach 80mm f/2.8 LS AF lens. The components of this kit offer everything needed to begin working in the high resolution digital medium format, with expanded versatility to shoot in difficult lighting conditions.

  • Credo 50 Digital Back (Mamiya 645 Mount)

    Combining a revised sensor design with tested functionality, the Credo 50 Digital Back from Mamiya Leaf houses a 44 x 33mm CMOS sensor for exceptionally detailed, color-accurate, low-noise images. Its CMOS design enables notable low-light sensitivity, from ISO 100-6400, as well as a quickened 1.2 fps continuous shooting rate. Additionally, this sensor design also avails an expansive 14-stop dynamic range with 14-bit color depth for well-detailed imagery with a broad range of colors and tones. Its 3.2" touchscreen LCD provides accurate verification of color, shadow detail, and focus, and the bright 1.15m-dot screen with 170° viewing angle allows for improved viewing in challenging light. Its intuitive graphical user interface means more efficient browsing and smart navigation, and the touch screen controls extend beyond the LCD to keep the viewing area clean of fingerprints and smudges. Offered here with a Mamiya 645 interface, this digital back is a versatile and high-resolution digital back for working with medium format camera bodies, as well as with view cameras or other systems using optional adapter plates.

    A dual-core microprocessor and the latest CF technology provides fast capture and viewing rates, and USB 3.0 and FireWire 800 technology offers rapid transfer speeds. An internal battery charger keeps you ready to work un-tethered and the brilliant LCD with live view allows for clear focus and composition on the go. The Credo back also collaborates with Capture One workflow software to seamlessly edit, enhance, and present images, and with Capture Pilot, you can immediately preview images with an iPhone or iPad and remotely control your camera. Weather-sealed construction offers peace of mind when shooting in less than optimal conditions.

    50 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
    Featuring a 50MP 44 x 33mm CMOS sensor, this Credo back avails high sensitivity to ISO 6400, along with 14-stop dynamic range and 14-bit color depth, with minimum noise levels. The CMOS sensor structure pairs with a dual-core microprocessor to also enable a quick continuous shooting rate of 1.2 fps, a top shutter speed of 1/10,000 sec., and long exposure capabilities up to 60 minutes.
    3.2" Touchscreen LCD
    For image review and menu navigation, a large 3.2" 1.15m-dot touchscreen LCD is available, which is also aided by the CMOS sensor design for live view monitoring with fast refresh rates and low noise for intuitive viewing in a variety of lighting conditions. The touchscreen's color gamut is able to reproduce up to 16 million colors, for accurate image confirmation on location, and its viewing angle is 170° for clear viewing from different positions. Additionally, the touchscreen design extends beyond the LCD itself, which permits image adjustments without blocking your view or smudging your screen.

    The LCD also affords a range of features designed to benefit both location and studio photographers, including an on-screen stop watch for long exposures, a bi-directional spirit level, star ratings during image review to help save time during post-production, and precise image magnification for critical focus checking when working tethered or un-tethered.
    Interface Design
    Well-suited to both location and studio photographers, the Credo 50 avails a variety of interface and file saving options for working in both tethered and un-tethered configurations. Both FireWire 800 and USB 3.0 connections are available for tethered applications, and one card slot is available to accept UDMA interface CompactFlash memory cards.

    The Credo backs are compatible with a wide array of medium and large format cameras and adapters and, specifically, this back is fitted with a Mamiya 645 interface mount.
    Other Features
    • Benefitting its use in trying conditions, the back is weather-sealed to resist dust and moisture.
    • The back accepts the included 3400mAh lithium-ion battery and has an internal battery charger, allowing you to transition seamlessly between tethered and un-tethered shooting configurations.
    • Language support: English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Russian.
  • 645DF+ Medium Format DSLR Camera (Body Only)

    The Mamiya 645DF+ Medium Format DSLR Camera Body is an open platform, digital medium format camera that that can use a digital back with an image area much larger than standard 35mm, leading to increased image quality. The camera is compatible with multiple brands of digital backs, including Leaf, Hasselblad, and Phase One, due to its open platform design. It also works with Mamiya focal plane lenses, Schneider-Kreuznach leaf shutter lenses, Mamiya 645 AFD lenses, and Hasselblad V lenses.

    While using leaf shutter lenses it is possible to reach a flash sync speed of 1/1600 second, and with the focal plane shutter it will sync at 1/125 second. Additionally, the camera features 1st and 2nd curtain synchronization along with an X-sync terminal and support for TTL flash metering.

    The 645DF+ features improved autofocusing system with phase-difference detection and 3 focus points. An infrared AF-assist beam will ensure accuracy even in poor lighting conditions. It also features a custom adjustment feature that allows you to fine-tune the alignment of the body to the back to match your focusing needs.

    Customization is emphasized in this model. It features an interchangeable focusing screen and allows for 3 custom dial modes for preferred capture settings. It also features 36 custom settings and programmable dials and buttons.

Mamiya Leaf 645DF+ Reviews

Credo 50 Digital Back Kit with 645DF+ Medium Format DSLR and 80mm f/2.8 LS AF Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great work horse I use the credo 50 kit to shoot portraits and people. The files are gorgeous and I love the button-less interface on the digi back and the Schneider lenses are superb. Focus is slower than Canon 5d mk3 of course, but lightning fast in comparison to the Leaf Afi system I came from. I also like the fact that the lenses feel solid and respond well to manual focusing which I still use sometimes. I chose the cmos sensor over the ccd sensors of the 40,60 and 80 as it gives me great scope to use the camera on location. In my opinion the ccd sensors struggle above 100 iso, and the files on the Credo 50 are perfectly fine at 800 - maybe even 1600 iso depending on how picky you are. Editing shots on the card and customizing white balance is also a joy on this back. I still prefer the feel of medium format bodies of the Hasselblad V and Rollei/Leaf AFi HY6 type - but having said that, I have with a bit of patience come around to the fact that the Mamiya body does deliver. It was also important to me that this kit is relatively 'future proof' in the sense that the back and lenses will go onto the new Phase One bodies, and that there is a multitude of lenses for the kit. As I travel abroad on jobs too - it is good to know that spare bodies and lenses are available at most rental houses across the planet for this kit.
