Mamiya RZ33 released - 33 megapixel camera

The price of a 33MP camera? £12K

The Mamiya RZ33 can be yours in all its 33-megapixel glory for £12,000.

Just when we thought the future of cameras was 20 years away with the Canon Wonder Camera, Mamiya comes out with its 33 megapixel beast, the Mamiya RZ33.

But only the truly serious photographer (or perhaps rich ones) should think about investing in the £11,870 ($17,990) camera.

With a 33 megapixel CCD sensor, an ISO range of 50-800, shutter speeds from 8 to 1/400 sec and an integrated vertical-horizontal rotation (which means users don't have to turn the camera when taking portraits), the RZ33 offers photographers the chance to get high-quality photographs.

Currently available in the US, it starts shipping this month. We'll keep you posted on whether we'll see this megapixel monster in the UK soon...
