Pentax 645z Press Release:

Ricoh Imaging Corporation: The (President Akabane Noboru), employs a large CMOS image sensor with new, as well as ultra-high-resolution images of approximately 51.4 million effective pixels, and a comfortable operation corresponding to professional use will be released interchangeable lens medium-format digital SLR camera equipped with a high reliability the “PENTAX 645Z”.

This product, we have developed based on was launched in 2010 the “PENTAX 645D”. I realize an image with excellent three-dimensional depiction in the ultra-high-definition and renew the image processing engine and image sensor to pursue the improvement of reliability and higher image quality in addition to dust and water structure with a reputation, of approximately 51.4 million effective pixels have. In addition, the Live View function continuous shooting performance of about 3 frames / second highest, high-resolution tilting LCD monitor, the AF system of the latest, exposure control with high accuracy, shutter unit or the like with improved durability, substantially of the key features By providing an improvement in operating response and enhanced Na, also has mobility that is required in the field of professional. In addition, it also includes such linkage function of the smart phone with wireless communication and full HD movie recording, and finish the model to expand greatly, the freedom and the possibility of new video expression.

1. High-definition Image of approximately 51.4 million effective pixels

To the imaging device, I am proud of adopted area size of about 1.7 times the size 35 Mirifuru-size, the new CMOS image sensor of 43.8mm × 32.8mm. Image processing engine “PRIME III” to match, was enhanced image processing capabilities of the high image quality and noise processing, by combining a low-pass filter-less design, approximately 51.4 million effective pixels having excellent stereo imaging performance and high resolution I am an ultra-high-definition image of.
In addition, by reducing drastically the noise of high ISO speed, ultra-high-sensitivity photography of the highest ISO sensitivity 204800 is also possible, and has enabled beyond the common sense of the medium-format conventional format, a new shooting representation You.

2. Fast response to meet the demands of professional

(RAW shooting, JPEG: up to 30 frames is L · ★ ★ ★ when) to 10 frames at about 3 frames / second highest and enables continuous shooting.

7. The exposure control with high accuracy due to “Pentax real-time scene analysis system”

Improvements exposure algorithm employed for RGB metering sensor about 8.6 million pixels, it is possible to significantly improve the exposure accuracy, and by linking to the white balance and auto-focus information from the photometric sensor and to improve the performance of each ” I have adopted the Pentax real-time scene analysis system “. I have to allow for exposure control in line with the intended shooting more, that to properly determine the subject or scene by photometric sensor. In addition, the separation accuracy of the background and the main subject, dimming accuracy of flash photography is also improving.

8. Optical viewfinder Large, easy-to-view

Was employed (trapezoidal) prism glass Torapizoido different in shape pentaprism general, it has an optical viewfinder a wide field of view of about 98% while reducing the size of the body size of the camera.
