Are there options to power this camera with an external battery for greater battery life such as USB or dummy batteries?
Asked by: Patrick
You can use the Pentax K-AC132 AC Adapter Kit BH #PEKAC132 with Pentax 645Z Medium Format DSLR Camera to provide a constant power supply source for your 645Z camera. The kit includes the D-AC120 AC Adapter and a 6' power cord for plugging the adapter into a wall socket. It then plugs into your camera for power. We are not aware of a dummy battery that will work with the Pentax 645Z Medium Format DSLR Camera.

question

what is the crop factor? in other words, what is the 50mm lens equivalent in 35mm full frame (what is the normal lens)?
Asked by: Anonymous
For all Pentax 645AF2, 645AF and 645A lens you mount to this camera youll multiply the given focal length by 0.79 to calculate the 35mm-equivalent focal length. As such, a 50mm lens on the Pentax 645Z Medium Format DSLR Camera would be the equivalent of a 39.5mm lens on a 35mm film camera.

question

Can this camera work with the old Pentax 6X7 leaf shutter lenses? The 1/125 flash sync of this camera is a bit worrisome for me
Asked by: Anonymous
In order to mount Pentax 67 series leaf shutter lenses onto the 645Z, you will need an adapter such as the FotodioX Pro Lens Mount Adapter for Pentax 67 Lens to Pentax 645 Mount Camera B&H # FOPP645AP67. Please see the image below for reference.
