Mamiya introduces Sekor AF 55mm and M Back adapters

Mamiya introduces the Sekor AF 55mm F2.8 LS D lens. The Sekor LS lens series is designed for use with the 645DF and it incorporates a lens shutter. A wide-angle lens with an angle of view of 65 degrees, which is the equivalent to a 34mm lens in the 35mm format, produces most natural image for a wide-angle lens. Mamiya also announces that the three separate digital back adapters to connect the M series digital back (M18, M22 or M31) to the RB67, RZ67Pro/ProII and 4x5 cameras have become available for sale...

The Sekor LS lens series is designed for use with the 645DF and it incorporates a lens shutter. A wide-angle lens with an angle of view of 65 degrees, which is the equivalent to a 34mm lens in the 35mm format, produces most natural image for a wide-angle lens. A floating mechanism improves aberration at the periphery and maintains sharpness consistently from the minimum focusing distance to infinity. Flash synchronization speeds up to 1/1600 seconds (equipment dependant), which allows greater flexibility for day-light synchronization, are achievable.

RB / RZ / 4x5 cameras adapters for the M digital backs
 
Three separate digital back adapters to connect the M series digital back (M18, M22 or M31) to the RB67, RZ67Pro/ProII and 4x5 cameras have become available for sale.
 
M Back Adapter HX704 for RB M Back Adapter HX705 for RZ67Pro/ProII

The HX704 and HX705 adapters effectively transform the RB67 and RZ67Pro/ProII film camera systems which you already own into high-end digital camera systems with the M series digital backs. The adapters can be easily attached without restricting the cameras' revolving mechanism, allowing for seamless digital photography in vertical or horizontal positioning. A 33x44mm and 37x49mm focusing screen masks are included when purchasing either adapter, and the adapters are best used with a wake-up cable and multi-connector mini-jack adapter cable sold separately.

M Back adapter HX402 for 4x5 cameras

The M Back adapter HX402 for 4x5 cameras allows for the M series digital backs to be used on most 4x5 cameras. Similar in design to the ZD Back adapter for 4x5 cameras, the adapter consists of a ground-glass and digital back attachment which allows smooth and simple sliding during photography. The waist level finder FW402 for RZ can be placed over the ground-glass to prevent unwanted light entering it and to magnify the view.
