Mamiya 645-AFD II overview

  • 1Description

Responding to the demands of medium format film and digital shooters, Mamiya has incorporated the latest auto focusing technology into the Mamiya 645AFD II.

Digital imaging
The advance of computers and digital image-processing systems has made digital imaging capabilities a must for the modern photographer. Simply replace the film magazine with a compatible digital back to expand creativity to a totally new set of applications and needs.

The Mamiya 645AFD II accepts interchangeable 120/220 film magazines, Polaroid proofing backs and digital backs. Linking the body to digital backs is the innovative Mamiya Serial Communication (MSC) protocol, which provides true, digital-ready, integrated technology that bridges the gap between conventional and digital photography and eliminates camera-to-back cable connections which can be hazardous and inconvenient.

MSC also increases automatic feature capabilities such as ISO recognition, autoexposure and TTL flash operation, plus digital back ready, capture and store status which are displayed on the camera's main LCD panel and in the viewfinder. No matter whether it is film or digital, all of the images are captured by world-class Mamiya AF lenses, now totaling ten and growing.

Note: This kit consists of a Mamiya 645 AFDII Camera Body, 80mm f/2.8 Lens, Lens Hood, 120/220 Film Back, Front/Back Caps, Mamiya Strap, 6 "AA" Batteries

Additional Features of the 645AFDII

  • Custom Functions: 36 custom settings
  • Time Saving Features

    Auto-detect of First Frame of Film
    The 645AFD II is the only auto-focus medium format camera to have auto-detect of the first frame; There is no need to line up the START arrows; the Film Magazine automatically seeks the first frame of film; The result is quicker and easier loading of film and less chance of film fog
    Half-and Third-Stop Shutter Speeds
    The only medium format camera that has precise selection of shutter speed values to 1/2- or 1/3-stop providing the means to record the proper exposure
    Fully Digital Controls
    The vertical-travel metal focal plane shutter provides a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 second; This permits the photographer to employ techniques, from soft-focus portraits using wide apertures to razor-sharp images of even the fastest-moving subjects; The high-speed shutter also allows flash synchronization at a fast 1/125 sec., which enables effective application of daylight synchronization and other flash techniques

    Useful Features

    Electronic Dial Lock
    Prevents accidental changes of aperture and shutter speeds set in the X, Manual, Aperture Priority and Shutter Speed Priority exposure modes; Lets you concentrate on the photo session, not the camera
    Auto bracketing for one-touch exposure adjustment
    Auto bracketing is effective under complex lighting conditions when determining proper exposure settings is difficult, or for shooting with narrow-latitude slide films; The camera will take two or three pictures: normal + over, normal + under or normal + under + over expore; You may also change the order of bracketing via the Custom Function menu, to under + normal + over, over + normal + under;
    Exposure data imprinting records vital information
    Apply the data imprinting to generate a record of exposure data factors outside the image area; DATA mode imprints exposure mode, aperture value, shutter speed, exposure compensation level, metering mode, TTL flash compensation indicator, bracketing position and index (frame) number. DAY mode records year, month, day, and time, along with an index number; The 4-digit index numbers run 0000 to 9999 and each digit can be set individually, allowing for custom indexing; Data is stored in camera memory, and is not cleared when a film magazine is replaced; This allows easier record keeping and management when shooting large numbers of images
    Custom Function settings
    There are three Custom Users (A, B & C) and 36 custom settings accessible by selecting CF on the exposure mode dial; For a complete listing of all custom settings, use the "Custom Settings" link at right; Having three separately-adjustable users allows for multiple setups for different people or preferences, making adjustments swift and effortless; Make the 645AFD II yours through finite preference controls
    Digital multiple exposure activation
    Press Multi Exposure Mode and set the desired number of exposures in a range of 2 to 6 with the digital control dial; Digital cancellation of film winding assures precise registration of multiple images on a single frame; By pressing the Multiple Exposure button before the exposure set is complete allows for more exposures to be dialed in
    To activate the Self Timer, use the selection ring around the shutter release; You can change the self-timer setting by pressing SET from 2 to 60 seconds; Settings can be made in 1-second steps from 2 to 10 seconds and in 10-second steps for settings longer than 10 seconds; Time-lapse photography is possible by using a locked-down cable release in the "C" (continuous advance) motor drive mode; Intervals are set between 2 and 60 sec. using the self-timer
