    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    I popped into MILK Studios in NY yesterday and was able to check one out for a few minutes. It's a big improvement over the Aptus backs. Super responsive, easy to navigate, with customizable menus and the screen looks great! You can see the Phase influence on the physical design, but also see that Leaf made it their own. The scrolling on the outside of the image area is a REALLY nice feature. I'm looking forward to putting one through the paces once demos are readily available.

    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    Although the new high resolution screen, live view and all other stuffs sounds interesting, still it does not offer what I need the most! I don't care about live view at all! All I needed to have in a new DB like Credo was long exposure capability of more than 3 minutes!!! It seems still P45+ with its tiny screen is the way to go!

    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    As we get closer to shipping and as we get to show it to more and more people, I had an opportunity today to play with the Credo 80 on an RZ with a 110mm lens. Some silly table-top setup but I liked how this combo works with the brilliant screen, Live View and of course the WLF!

    Sorry to enter late in the thread here, but do these Leaf backs have focus mask?
    Thanks,

    Bob,
    They are lacking focus mask, but they do have live preview.

    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    Not having tried the Credo myself which I would love to do . I do have a question on live view and having a IQ back are they equal too, better or worse in live view. honestly myself I use the zoom to 100 percent more than anything and are the comparable as well. Sorry I asked 2 questions here.

    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    To be honest I've yet to have a good experience with live view on my IQ. (maybe it's due to MY iq?). Anyway, the screen shot there looks like the ideal situation of controlled indoor lighting where it does seem to just about work. I would hope that the Credo is an evolution from the IQ because I know that best I've achieved has been comparable to a 1950's TV with poor bunny ear antenna reception. YMMV.

    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    Have a look at BMW Design's latest creation, the Zagato Coupe

    Most images were taken with a Credo 80 on a 645DF, some were done on an Aptus-II 10

    What a cool website. The images are also stunning, but it is rare to have them presented THAT well.

    Compliments to the webmaster and the photographer for this !

    WOW! I'll sell a couple cameras to buy that car!!! Although it would probably take a truck load of Credo 80's to be able to afford it...

    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    Hi Yair

    I am shooting Credo 80 with Alpa 12TC. Wonder if shutter latency of back will work only when set on "zero latency"? This is not a deal breaker except heavy power consumption and unnecessary heat. Will the One Shot cable of Kapture Gruope enable shooting with the back at "normal" latency? Comments by anyone who has the experience will be very much appreciated.

    Hi Philip,

    Basically YES, if you use the KG cable you can leave the shutter latency set to Normal. If you shoot extensively and use Live View frequently or do consecutive long exposures then I would say that the KG option is the better one, if not the most elegant:-)

    Philip,

    After having had two KG One Shot cables fail I ended up moving to the Alpa cable release. The quality difference is significant but then so is the cost alas. You still have to be careful about smoothly releasing the shutter but at least the unit won't self destruct in the field.

    Zero latency isn't too much of a deal so long as you remember to either set auto power off appropriately or manually get used to power off/on after each shooting sequence. Also, the cost of something like a KG One Shot or Alpa release buys a LOT of spare batteries ...

    Re: Mamiya Leaf introduces the new Leaf CREDO

    Hi Graham

    Thanks for the sharing.Yes replacement batteries are cheap (USD20 each here in Hong Kong--2200maH, v.s. those supplied with Credo at >USD100 each--2900maH). I am also considering external power supply such as Energizer (FW connection issue?) or Tekkeon as suggested by some. Any idea or experience how well those work?

    Hi Graham,

    It's me again. You mentioned Alpa cable release as a quality solution as well; could you share further the parts number because I didn't manage to find it at the Alpa site in the accessories sector.

    Thanks and best regards

    Thanks Peter, great help. Don't know how I managed to miss that one when I went through the web pages last night! Only excuse was that it was too late in the night / morning then.

    Appreciate contributions from members here; great place to surf.
