Mamiya Leaf is getting an early jump on the Photokina deluge with the announcement of its new Leaf Credo 50, a medium format camera back employing Sony’s 50-megapixel 44 x 33mm CMOS image sensor. 

The Leaf Credo 50 features an ISO range of 100 to 6400, 14 stops of dynamic range, exposures from 1/10,000 up to one hour in length and a 3.2-inch, 1.15-megapixel touch screen display.

Live view is supported through the digital back’s display or through a computer using Capture One software (tethering options are available via USB 3.0 or FireWire 800). The Credo 50 can capture images at up to 1.2 frames per second and features RAW files up to 50MB in size with a 14-bit color depth.

The Leaf Credo will ship this month for $26,995 (back only) or $30,995 as a system with the 645DF+.
