Pentax 645D gets UK launch - Pentax’s first medium-format digital SLR camera is coming to the United Kingdom.
Pentax Imaging Systems is pleased to announce that the Pentax 645D interchangeable lens, medium-format digital SLR camera will be launched in the UK in December 2010.
The Pentax 645D has been developed to provide super-high-resolution images, produced by large image sensors, to serious landscape and outdoor photographers.
It combines exceptional image quality with excellent manoeuvrability and outstanding reliability to simplify professional-level outdoor photography.
With the incorporation of a large, high-performance image sensor (measuring 44mm by 33mm) and Pentax-original image-processing technology, the 645D produces extra-sharp, super-high-resolution images with approximately 40 effective megapixels.
The Pentax 645D is also compatible with all existing Pentax 645 lenses for an easy move to digital for existing Pentax 645 owners.
The Pentax 645D will be available from early December 2010 with an RRP of £8999.99 (body only) or £9999.99 for the kit (inc. 55mm SDM 645 lens).
