Ricoh Pentax 645Z. Resolution and depth of expression brought by the size of the imaging area. This is the reason that medium-format cameras have been chosen for high-end photography that gives the top priority to image quality.
Detailed features of Ricoh Pentax 645Z
The PENTAX 645Z is equipped with a large, 43.8 x 32.8 mm CMOS image sensor. With an imaging area approximately 1.7-times larger than a 35mm full-frame format, a higher degree of the sharpness and ambiance of the scene can be captured. Also, because the depth of field is shallow, the blurring effects can be controlled freely. The Ricoh Pentax 645Z is all the more effective and expressive to focus on a single point that you want to express for exciting photos.
Expanding the realm of exposure settings. The ultra high-sensitivity max. ISO 204,800 is made possible by delicate and thorough image noise processing through an image processor and image sensor of a high SN ratio. Even at high ISO settings, excellent image quality is possible with reduced noise and outline blurring. Even in the same shooting conditions, the greater freedom for the wider setting of aperture value and shutter speed allows you to express blur and emotion just the way you like.
Design concept that brings out the full potential of the lens resolution. Although false colours and moire are suppressed, low pass filters unfortunately reduce the overall sharpness of image. As part of the design concept this filter was removed from the image sensor unit to give first priority to resolution on the PENTAX 645Z. This construction succeeds in bringing out the full potential of the lens and image sensor’s resolution. The unsurpassed resolution representation will resolve individual leaves on trees in a landscape shot.
Instantly process approximately 51.4 million effective pixels. The PENTAX latest image processor, PRIME III is used in the Ricoh Pentax 645Z. This processor boasts a maximum processing speed that is approx. five times greater than the PRIME II. So instantaneous processing of the large amounts of data produced by an approx. 51.4 million effective pixels is possible. This processor also contributes to significantly improved performance, such as a faster Instant Review.
Exceed the standards of high quality imaging. The Ricoh Pentax 645Z has approximately 51.4 million effective pixels. This number of pixels is an absolute advantage when photographing subjects that require high resolution, such as scenery. The difference in sharpness and density of detail comes across clearly even in A3 size prints. Also, as a rich amount of information is included in each shot, tone jumping is less likely to occur, when working with RAW images, letting you boldly change parameters and freely customize the finish without worrying about ruining the image.
