    The second link goes nowhere.
    Calumet currently lists 6 items under medium format film cameras for Mamiya and only one (new) under Hasselblad.
    They also still list Mamiya in the digi cateqory.

    This news of Calumet relates only to the digital offerings (which is of course, the 'mainstream') and does not speak to the film camera offerings which are an extremely small part of their business now.

    So Mamiya make the lenses and Phase One makes the electronics for image capture. That makes a lot of sense and reflects the way that photography will develop in the digital age. I doubt very much if Phase one , Hassy or Leaf backs will be in my price range any time in the forseeable future , and I think I'll stick with film anyway.

    I don't think there will be many stories about camera bodies that will refer to film capture from now on.
