645Z

Inherits the PENTAX 645 tradition and takes it to the next level.Inherits the PENTAX 645 tradition and takes it to the next level.

Flexible Angle
Equipped with a tiltable LCD monitor that can be moved -35° to 125°.

The PENTAX 645Z is equipped with an LCD monitor that features a tilt mechanism. It can be moved 35° in a downward direction and 125° upward direction. Coupled with a 3.2 inch, approximately 1.037 million dot, large, high-definition, wide viewing angle panel, this feature makes it possible to shoot at low angles and high angles while looking at the Live View display from a more comfortable position. It also features an air gapless construction that suppresses internal reflections. Reinforced glass with AR coating is used for superb visibility, protection from scratches, durability, and is crush resistant.

Making Contrast AF possible
Live View

This model is equipped with the Live View function which can be used for accurate focus checking on a magnified display (max. 16x). In addition to Contrast AF which obtains extremely accurate focusing, you can set Focus Peaking and Face Detect AF. Because effects such as Custom Image and white balance are reflected on the screen, you can expand your range of expression.

Achieving mobile, hand-held shooting
Integrated design

The PENTAX 645Z inherits the traditional DSLR style from the PENTAX 645 series in its integrated viewfinder, image sensor unit, and grip. Excellent operational reliability and focus accuracy are achieved so you never have to worry about poor connection with the digital back, or focus errors due to poor mounting. Additionally, by optimizing the weight balance and making the grip shape easy to hold, a medium-format digital camera that offers comfortable hand-held shooting is achieved.

Wide open field of view that is only available on a medium-format camera
Optical viewfinder

To make the camera body more compact, a trapezoidal prism was used. The mount is tilted forward at 9° from the body, further optimizing the optical route for a shorter overall height. A Kepplerian telescope type is used for the eyepiece optical system, achieving both a high magnification factor and wide angle of view. This viewfinder features a large field of view rivals that on 35mm full-size cameras. The field of view is approx. 98%, and the screen is replaceable. A natural bright matte is standard, making it easy to capture focus peaks.

Clears operation tests of 100,000 shots
High durability mechanism

The PENTAX 645Z is equipped with a high-speed, long-life drive unit that clears durability tests of over 100,000 shots, equivalent to double that of the PENTAX 645D. This not only allows you to shoot a continuous shot but also to shoot people and moving objects that are frequently being shot and to make digital archives, all of which meet the difficult needs of pro photographers.

Airtight body that keeps out rain and dust
Dustproof, weather-resistant construction

Anticipating poor conditions encountered in outdoor shooting, this camera features a dust and splash resistant construction. 76 different places including buttons, dials, and covers are carefully sealed to keep out raindrops, humidity, and dust. The same construction is also used on AW lenses. When combined with an AW lens, this camera can shoot even in severe conditions such as. waterfall and dust.

Able to shoot even in cold climates
Cold-resistant operation guaranteed to -10°C

This camera was tested in -10°C environments, confirming operation accuracy, stability, responsiveness, and changes in battery status. With this kind of protection, you can always be ready to take the camera into cold environments where the digital devices normally do not work properly.

Seeking lightness and strongness
Magnesium alloy exterior

The camera exterior and tiltable LCD monitor are made of lightweight and high-strength magnesium alloy. This material provides superb shock absorption, and heat dissipation, as well as excellent electromagnetic shielding, high durability, and reliability. It stands up to hard use and protects the internal precision mechanisms of the camera.

A highly precise and durable body
Aluminum die-cast chassis

To achieve a chassis that supports the flange, viewfinder and optical system of the AF light path, a high level of strength and accurate dimensions are necessary. Die-cast aluminum was used for its high strength, achieving a highly precise assembly and high rigidity. Additionally, the image sensor unit is attached to the chassis via a heat dissipation shield. Heat is released by making the rear section of the chassis a heat sink, reducing noise that occurs due to dark current.

Remove dust using ultrasonic vibrations
DR II and Dust Alert

The PENTAX 645Z is equipped with DR II (Dust Removal II), to avoid the problem of dust particles. The DRII can effectively remove all dust particles clinging to the surface of the CMOS image sensor unit by vibrating the UV/IR reduction filter with piezoelectric element at supersonic speed.
