The Leaf Credo 50 builds on the previous creations such as the Phase One IQ250, Hasselblad H5D-50c and Pentax 645Z offering users a wide iOS range together with faster continuous shooting.
Other features of the Mamiya Leaf Leaf Credo 50 include the already mentioned 50-megapixel medium-format 44 x 33 mm CMOS sensor, together with improved Live View and an ISO range of 100 to 6,400 with exposures capable of ranging from 1/10,000th of a second to an hour. Mamiya Leaf explains :
“The Leaf Credo 50 is available also in Wide-Spectrum version, where the standard IR-cut filter has been replaced with an optically corrected glass. This new back delivers amazingly clean detail in a wider wavelength range due to high NIR sensitivity, high iso capability and excellent long exposures performance. Read more about the WS backs.
The Leaf Credo 50 offers the best price-performance ratio of any high resolution, high iso single-shot capture device, enabling you to take your photography further by capturing the highest quality, single-shot images possible. The sensor provides the ability to record the finest detail, eliminating the need to use cumbersome multi-shot solutions.”
