Mamiya 645DF Camera
The Dalsa Sensor Advantage
With DSLR-like handling and speed, the Mamiya
645DF takes digital images which offer top quality
results with the professional feel that only a medium
format system can provide.
The initial cooperation between Leaf and Dalsa
stretches all the way back to 1997 with the
introduction of the Leaf Volare line of digital backs.
This strong collaboration between the two companies
has enabled a level of cooperation that has produced
the high caliber CDD sensors found in Leaf's marketleading digital backs.
• Rapid and accurate auto-focus
• Super-fast focal plane shutter speeds of up to
1/4000 sec
• Leaf shutter lenses achieve unprecedented synch
speeds of up to 1/1600 sec
• Seamless switching between vertical focal plane
and lens shutters
• Sophisticated operation via easy-to-use,
ergonomically placed dials and buttons
• Reliable, robust camera body construction
Where Science and Art Meet
The Leaf Aptus-II digital camera back is the
culmination of decades of experience in the digital
field from the company that brought the first
commercial digital camera back to market. State of
the art Dalsa CCD sensors, intuitive touch screen
controls on a 6 x 7cm (3.5in.) display seamlessly
function together to make the Leaf Aptus-II the
professional’s favorite medium-format digital back.
The Leaf Aptus-II series of camera backs offers you
speed, image quality and maximum flexibility to push
your work beyond your imagination.

Custom Built CCD Sensors - Unmatched
Flexibility Enables Total Control
Leaf Aptus-II digital backs use ultra-low-noise CCD
sensors with a high dynamic range to better capture
what the human eye sees.
Designed and developed according to Leaf’s
specifications, the Leaf Aptus-II CCD sensors capture
stunning images whose natural skin tones, subtle
details, richness, low noise and accurate color
reproduction are second to none.
The Leaf GUI (Graphic User Interface)
The latest Leaf GUI provides an intuitive and userfriendly upgrade to previous versions.
Designed with the needs of professional
photographers in mind, it improves workflow
processes and provides quicker access to important
features like favorite settings and picture review.
The Leaf GUI’s outdoor theme also makes exterior
shooting much easier by reducing glare and reflection.
Unsurpassed 12 f-stops of dynamic range, brilliant
16-bit color files of up to 480MB, an optional internal
rotation and Leaf SensorFlex technology, make it the
most flexible sensor in the world.
Leaf Aptus-II digital camera backs are compatible
with over 80 large- and medium-format cameras
(see for current listings).
The newest member of the Leaf Aptus-II family - the
Leaf Aptus-II 12 - features an 80MP CCD sensor.
Measuring in at 53.7 x 40.3mm, this full frame sensor
records even the finest details and eliminates the need
for cumbersome multi-shot solutions.
Internal Rotating Sensor
The Leaf Aptus-IIR – available in both 56MP and
80MP – is the most versatile digital back ever made,
allowing you to take your photography further by
capturing the highest quality, single-shot images
possible. On the Leaf Aptus-IIR you can change from
landscape to portrait orientation with a simple turn of
the Leaf Verto internal rotation dial.
