Mamiya AFd III + DM22

Hi!

I've upgraded my back from a DM22 to a P30+ for my 645DF body.
I got a AFd III body along with the P30+ back and I thought I would sell the AFd III + DM22 forward but I cant get the body to fire with that back, it works good with the P30+.

AF works and the back says ready and all but when doing a full shutter press it focuses and then nothing more.

Is there a setting that needs to be altered? Been reading the manual front to back but cant figure it out (weird since it works with the P30+). The DM22 works like a sharm on the 645DF body.

Is it a firmware issue with the body? I've got the latest firmware on the DM22 from 2011.

Odd since DM22 was kitted with the AFd back in the day it seems.

Thanks

/David

Hi

Most typical issue is that the DM22 does not know it is on a AFDIII.
If it doesn't, then it does not know how to communicate.
This is something you setup in the Setup menu.

Phase One backs are different, they "just works" ;-)
