Reading Time: < 1 minute

Mamiya Leaf today announced the release of the Leaf Credo 50, a 50-megapixel medium format digital system. With a wider range of ISO settings – from 100 to 6400 – the latest addition to the Credo line uses a Sony-made CMOS sensor, which also improves on previous versions by reportedly bettering live view performance.


The new system boasts a 1.2fps capture rate, and faster read and write speeds, says the company. It has a 3.2-inch 1.15-megapixel resolution touch screen that supports live view.

The Credo 50 also comes with Capture One software for raw image processing and editing.

The new system announcement comes a little over two years since since Mamiya Leaf launched its Leaf Credo range of digital camera backs, including 40-, 60-, and 80-megapixel. In keeping with tradition, the Credo 50 will be on display at this year’s Photokina, which kicks off next week.

A wide-spectrum option for Near IR and UV imaging is also available.

The Credo 50 digital back is priced at $26,995, with the Mamiya Leaf Credo 50 system priced at $30,995. UK pricing has yet to be confirmed. Digital back and camera system upgrades are available for existing Mamiya Leaf customers.
