JPG (8-bit depth) and RAW (14-bit depth) files offer superb image quality. The 645D is compatible with all Pentax 645AF2 bayonet mount lenses.  It has an 11-point autofocus system and 77-segment metering system, an all-glass trapezoid pentaprism viewfinder, and a 3" LCD display.

A full range of white balance, exposure and playback options are available, as well as sensitivity from 100-1600 ISO, and in-camera HDR image capture that automatically takes 3 images and blends them into a single photo to more accurately represent the range of light intensity levels found in real scenes. A Lens Correction function automatically compensates for lateral chromatic aberration, as well as barrel and pincushion distortion common to wide angle lens photography, with select Pentax 645 lenses.

The 645D can capture 1.1 frames per second at full resolution, and offers mirror lock-up, multi-exposure, bracketing and interval functions also.  The rugged magnesium alloy body is weather-sealed and cold-proof to resist rain, snow, dust, etc. It has dual memory card slots (SD/SDHC) for convenience, and operates on a single rechargeable Li-Ion battery.  Look closely--you'll see the difference.

Mirror Dampening Hardware

Mirror dampening hardware applies a braking action to the mirror swing, minimizing the effect of camera shake and noise levels to the image capture process.

Mirror Lockup Function

Mirror Lockup function prevents blur caused by the movement of the mirror during the exposure, ensuring the sharpest possible image capture for professional-caliber applications.

HDMI Output

HDMI output for high resolution image display on HDTVs.

question

Is there an extension tube available for this camera?
Asked by: Anonymous
Im not aware of new option for Pentax 645 extension tubes on the market. There are some used options out there, though. You could try the B&H Used Department <a href= http://([email protected]). target= _blank >([email protected]).</a> Otherwise, you could also look into universal bellows. Novoflex makes the BALPRO 1 Universal Bellows (B&H# NOBP1). You would then need the Novoflex Balpro 1 Adapter for Pentax 645 Cameras (B&H # NOBP1AP645) and Novoflex Balpro 1 Adapter for Pentax 645 Lenses (B&H # NOBP1AP645L).
