Detailed Specs for the Pentax 645z Leaked 24 Hours Ahead of Official Announcement

The rumor sites are hard at work when it comes to Pentax’s soon-to-be-released medium format shooter, the 645z, and it looks like it paid off. In addition to the leaked photos and details from yesterday, we now have a comprehensive spec list that contains some very interesting tidbits indeed.

Both Digicame-info and Photo Rumors have published these specs and they seems to have been ORIGINALLY leaked by Ricoh Germany, although they’ve since been taken down.

Before we dive into the leaked specs, first, a clarification: the camera won’t be able to shoot 4K video in the traditional sense as previously rumored, it’s going to feature the a ‘4K interval mode’ (same as the K3?). That’s very different from actually shooting 4K video; if you’re still interested in that, hold out for the new Leica S.

Alright, now that we have the disappointing stuff out of the way, we get to the fun stuff, the actual specs. We’re including a short list of the most pertinent ones below:

  • 51.4-megapixel 32.8 x 43.8mm Sony CMOS sensor
  • ISO 100 – 204,800
  • PRIME III image processor
  • 4K interval shooting: 2-2000 frame with one or more second intervals
  • SAFOX11 AF system: 27 point (25 cross type), LW -3 to +18
  • 3.2-inch 1.037M-dot tiltable LCD
  • TTL metering with 86k RGB sensor
  • Live View capable
