We weren’t able to send anyone all the way to CP+ this year, and some of the products and details emerging from the trade show have us a little sad about that.
We already shared the news that Fuji will soon be debuting a 50mm tele conversion lens for the X100/s, and now we’ve got some specs and price information for the upcoming Pentax 645D CMOS Medium Format camera.
The info comes to us from the folks over at DC.Watch, who heard it from Ricoh at CP+. And even though a couple of the specifications are given in ranges rather than a definitive number, this should give you an idea of what to expect when the camera gets its official announcement, which should happen sometime this Spring.
According to DC.Watch, the new camera will boast:
- A 40 – 50-megapixel sensor
- A SAFOX XI AF module
- 3fps continuous shooting
- Max ISO of either 102,400 or 204,800
- A shutter life of 100,000 actuations
- Live view capability with movie function
- USB 3.0 support for tethered shooting
Additionally, they were also told that the final camera would cost about $10,000 and would arrive officially in mid-April of this year.
