Pentax 645 Digital

Pentax-645-DigitalPentax will unveil their new Pentax 645 Digital medium format camera at Photo Imaging Exp in Japan this week.

Pentax News Release: PENTAX Imaging Company has announced that PENTAX Corporation will unveil the first PENTAX 645 Digital medium-format camera at the Photo Imaging Expo (PIE) from March 1720, 2005 in Tokyo. This latest PENTAX digital advancement will be showcased under glass at PIE 2005.

The PENTAX 645 Digital camera will offer professional quality digital image reproduction. The camera will also feature:

In addition to a legendary array of film and digital SLR camera products, PENTAX boasts a proud heritage of delivering professional quality photographic equipment. PENTAX introduced the world's first multi-mode medium-format film camera in 1984the PENTAX 645. In 1997, the manufacturer unveiled the PENTAX 645N, which was the world's first medium-format camera with a high-precision autofocus system at that time. The PENTAX 645 Digital medium-format camera will offer a new digital dimension for medium-format photographers.

Digital Camera Info has a first look review of the Pentax Digital 645 after access to it at the PMA show this past week. They write - 'The top of the camera reveals more about the camera function than the other views. A simulated LCD display shows an exposure of 1/4000 at f/2.8. The news there is the apparent maximum shutter speed, which is high for a medium format camera. A section of the display shows the word �RAW� and below that is a rectangle that reads �645.� We could infer that 645D could hold 645 RAW images in memory � which would be a heck of a lot of 18 megapixel images � or we could guess that the 645D is a multi-format camera, and that �645� is a full frame shot, while a different crop is available. (The Nikon D2X is a prominent example of a multi-format camera.)'
