02_ZDback_E_p021-030 07/3/9, 20:38 2829
It is possible to replace the IR cut filter and low-pass filter on this unit in accord-
ance with the conditions of the subject being photographed. Refer to the in-
struction manual supplied with the IR Cut Filter and Low-Pass Filter for the
replacement procedure.
IR Cut Filter YB401
• The IR cut filter YB401 only allows visible light to pass
through it, cutting out infrared and other non-visible
light.
• Using the IR cut filter YB401 produces higher levels
of image resolution.
• The IR cut filter YB401 does not reduce false colors,
moiré and other phenomena that are unique to digital images.
Low-Pass Filter YC401
• The low-pass filter YC401 reduces false colors, moiré and other phenomena
that are produced depending on the subject and which are unique to digital
images, and is therefore suitable for normal photography.
• Low-pass filters have the same capabilities as IR cut filters.
Removing the IR Cut Filter YB401 for Mamiya ZD Back
1. Press the surface of the filter in the
direction of the arrow while take care
not to scratch it.
2. Keep pressing down on it and lift out
the filter.
The IR Cut Filter YB401 for Mamiya ZD
Back can now be detached.

02_ZDback_E_p021-030 07/3/9, 20:38 2930
3. Store the IR Cut Filter YB401 for
Mamiya ZD Back in the filter storage
case of the Mamiya ZD Back cap
KE403.
Attaching the IR Cut Filter YB401 for Mamiya ZD Back
1. Invert the filter so that the side en-
graved “IR CUT FILTER” is facing
back.
2. Align the notch on the filter attach-
ment with the protruding part of the
filter and press it into place.
The IR Cut Filter YB401 for Mamiya ZD
Back is now attached.

RAW Data
RAW data is image data that has not undergone any processing in this unit
and has the extension .MEF . To view RAW image data on a computer, it must
first be converted to processing, editing and general use format (TIFF , JPEG)
by Mamiya Digital PhotoStudio software. This process is called “developing.”
MEMO
•RAW+JPEG images can be erased simultaneously, or you can use the menu settings to erase
them separately. (Playback Menu [10] Select File Type to Erase P .129)

Color space refers to the area where colors are reproduced. The color repro-
duction area varies depending on the type of digital camera, monitor, printer or
other input/output device. T o match the colors from input to output, it is neces-
sary to adjust the colors reproduced by each device by correcting/managing
the different color reproduction areas.
Adobe RGB color space has a broader color reproduction area than sRGB and
is mainly used for business purposes, such as commercial printing. When im-
ages taken in Adobe RGB mode are output on an sRGB device, they will ap-
pear slightly paler than output images taken in sRGB mode.
Color Space
You can set the color space of JPEG images. The default setting is [sRGB].
RAW images can be specified when developing images using Mamiya Digital
PhotoStudio.
Setting Description
sRGB Sets the color space to sRGB. Suitable for general image use.
Sets the color space to Adobe RGB. With a broader color reproduction area
AdobeRGB
than sRGB, it is suitable for uses such as commercial printing. However, the
same gamut can only be reproduced on an image output device with the
Adobe RGB color reproduction area.
NOTE:
• When sRGB or AdobeRGB color space is selected in the this unit Setup menu, the ICC profile
is not embedded in JPEG images captured with this unit. When editing JPEG images captured
with this unit using applications other than Mamiya Digital PhotoStudio, be sure to use the same
work space as the color space that was selected when the pictures were taken.
1. Select [1 Color Space (JPEG)] on the Setup
menu and press the OK button.
2. Press [ ] [ ] on the toggle key to select the
color space.

The adaptability of the human eye enables us to see white as white regardless
of the light source, such as daylight, cloudy skies, incandescent lighting or
fluorescent lighting. To capture white as white in the same way as the human
eye in images taken with a digital camera, the camera must be adjusted to suit
the light conditions under which the subject is captured.

Color Temperature
Light has various hues and may be reddish or bluish, for example. Reproduc-
ing such hues requires an objective gauge (scale). The color temperature de-
scribes the hue by the absolute temperature (K: kelvin).
The higher the color temperature, the bluer the hue and the lower the color
temperature, the redder the hue.

Minor Adjustment of White Balance
You can make minor adjustments to the white balance settings for auto, day-
light, cloudy, shade, electric light, fluorescent light and flash in the range of ±3

Trial Shot
Check that the color temperature you have set is the correct white balance for
the shooting conditions by taking a test shot using the white balance set by the
color temperature setting.
Mired
The color temperature of the light source is expressed in kelvins (K), but it
does not correspond to the color difference of the light source.
A difference of 500K in the high color temperature area is very different from a
difference of 500K in the low color temperature area. The mired is a measure
for expressing this breadth of variation. The mired value is the reciprocal of the
color temperature multiplied one million times.

The ISO sensitivity (image sensitivity) is a numeric indication of the degree to
which the image sensor reacts to light. The higher the number, the greater the
sensitivity to light and suitability to taking pictures in low light where a fast
shutter speed is required. Greater sensitivity , however, is accompanied by some
loss of quality, apparent as noise, color noise or grainy images.
The standard Mamiya ZD Back film speed is ISO 50. The recommended ISO
sensitivity is ISO 50 to ISO 100 to capture images with low noise. The film
speed can be adjusted in 1/3 steps from ISO 50 to ISO 400, but selecting a film
speed above ISO 200 may result in visible noise or grainy images. Use only
when you require a fast shutter speed in low light conditions.
1. Press the ISO button.
The ISO icon and film speed appear on
the digital LCD panel.
2. Press the toggle keys to select the film speed.
The display will return to the normal screen when any button other than the
[ISO], [OK] or [Cancel] buttons are pressed.
3. Press the ISO button to set.
You can also press any button other than the toggle key to set.
Important
• Selecting a high ISO sensitivity will result in greater noise, such as color noise or graininess.
•Taking pictures with a high film speed under long exposure conditions will produce more noise,
such as color noise.
• More noise may appear in images when a high film speed is used in a high temperature envi-
ronment.
• Use of the noise reduction function is recommended when using a film speed higher than ISO200.
