Mayima and Phase One combine for 645 AF DV (computer-translated)

Digitalcamera.jp has the latest update from Mamiya and Phase One on the medium format world (computer-translated). Also computer-translated the March 10 joint press release. This is good timing for them given Pentax's recent 645 comment.

We can't make too much from the computer-translated text, but this looks like a modular system, and can take digital backs from other manufacturers as well. Shutter speed ranges from 1/4000 to 60 minutes. It will be shown at PIE (Photo Imaging Expo) 2008 next week. NOTE: This is based on computer-translated text!!!

This will be updated when we find out more, or when the press releases come out in english. As of right now there are no details posted at PhaseOne.com or Mamiya.com.

If this sounds confusing, please feel free to ignore it, until more is known :-)
