Pentax 645D

Imaging Resource
10 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Given that the Pentax 645D is out of the realm of cameras we normally test, we went back and forth on whether to do a full image analysis, but we've decided to go forward. We wanted to flesh out what we posted late last year with a little more experiential writeup and final thoughts before sending...
  • Pros: Exquisite detail in JPEGs, even more from RAW files, Superb per-pixel sharpness (but see Con regarding aliasing artifacts), Surprisingly good ergonomics, Very good high ISO performance, though limited to only ISO 1,600, Good dynamic range from RAW files, Accurate default saturation, Useful D-Rang...

Pentax 645D Review

Review guidelines
15 September 2013
  • Summary: We could define the Pentax 645D (almost) perfect here and close this section. In fact, the quality in the image that can produce leaves open mouth for precision and sharpness. The colors are realistic, but they can also be adjusted as a favorite to have exactly the picture you are looking for.
  • Pros: Image quality, ergonomics, 40 megapixel sensor.
  • Cons: Price, Few optics available, Does not have the Live View

Pentax 645D Review

What Digital Camera
2 December 2010
  • Summary: Hasselblad’s latest H4D-31 offers the same sensor size and, with its modular design, is aimed more at studio work. The 645D’s weather-sealed body will be a big pull for those working in the field.
  • Pros: Stunning image quality, easy to use, nice large viewfinder
  • Cons: Processing speed, viewfinder coverage, too pricey for most

Pentax 645D review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The 645D will no doubt attract a niche audience, as the almost £10,000 price tag is firmly out of reach of most amateur users. Interestingly, though, many of the features seem to be catering for a more consumer-level user, with its DSLR-styled additions and a host of auto modes.

ePHOTOzine
23 February 2011
  • Summary: Each of these two cameras are excellent at what they do best.

Pentax 645D

Prophotos.ru
14 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Камера, да и вся система, получилась как минимум необычная. От большинства современных среднеформатных систем Pentax 645D отличается прежде всего несъемным задником. Модульность сведена к минимум. Все как в классических зеркалках — камера отдельно, объектив отдельно.
  • Pros: высокое разрешение матрицы;, точная цветопередача;, сравнительно низкий уровень шума даже на высоких ISO;, удобное управление;, влагозащищенный корпус;, поддержка работы с двумя картами памяти;, совместимость со старой оптикой;, емкий аккумулятор.
  • Cons: немодульная конструкция;, нет возможности управления с помощью компьютера;, точки фокусировки сосредоточены в самом центре видоискателя;, работа с медленными картами формата SD.
