has introduced two new digital scan back
cameras in its SuperModel line: the Super6K-2 and Super8K-2, both
featuring Kodak's new trilinear CCD sensors. The new models allow
high-res images to be captured with half the lighting, a potential
savings of thousands of dollars. Greater CCD sensitivity also
facilitates use of the scan backs for architectural interiors and
exteriors, and furniture and automobiles in large-ad sets.

invites you to choose a conventional wired connection by attaching its QF25 TTL adapter between the Mamiya 645AFD and any Qflash model or to go wireless using a FreeWire Digital Transceiver (FW10) and FW65 TTL adapter connected to the Mamiya. Connect any number of remote FreeWire/Qflash units for single or multi-flash coordinated wireless TTL. For either setup, choose a flash TTL mode on the Mamiya 645AFD, dial in any flash compensation, and the camera will direct the flash to turn on/off for your desired setting.
