Lovely files, practical and tough build

  • Excerpt: I'm using this for landscape and portraiture work, but it could be used for some light reportage work as well. The files are great. I own a D800 too, an a lot of people like to compare the two. It's a silly comparison - the files from the 645D, and the look you get with medium format lenses makes this a totally different camera. The only similar thing is the number of MP. The quality of the pixels though - 645D hands down.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD

Mixed emotions.

  • Summary: (If you don't like specifics, just know that this is a 3.5 star review and jump to the conclusion!) After having spent a few days with this camera, I though it was time to come and share some of my thoughts on it. I am a wedding photographer, and decided to give this thing a rent (Lensrentals is a wonderful company btw) to see if at some point would be inclined to invest in the Medium Format digital system.

Good but limited

A Reader "snailgate", Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: OK, full disclosure. I have not purchased this camera. main reason: limited availability of lens's in the USA. I want a super sharp 100mm lens, a good autofocus zoom to 300mm,and something to 500 or 1000mm. Not interested in a 50 or an 80. As for the camera, why no image stabilization? For strictly tripod use, it looks great, technically.

645D Hits the mark

George, B&H Photo
12 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The 645D is an excellent medium format SLR that does an incredible job of showing great detail. The unibody is excellent in handling the camera without having to worry about installing backs. The controls are easy to find and operate. The only thing missing is live view and this is why I am giving it a four star rating.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Good Depth Range, Water-tight Seals

  • Excerpt: love this camera,used it at an outdoor event and got great shots.this camera will match your best skills.it has more bells and whistles than most will ever use.<br />they should have included live view,a iso of at least 50,25 would have been the&quot;cat's meow.<br />should have done more research on what lenses to match it with. my suggestion[ 35-70mm, 75mm prime,and 100-300mm.and made them availiable with the cameras introduction.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Needs better software, No image stabilization, no live view

  • Excerpt: Back in the late 80s I seriously started to pursue landscape photography. I had been impressed with large fine art gallery prints that caught my eye and I wanted to be able to create those same types of images for myself. After six months with 35mm I knew it was a dead end for me. I jumped to a Pentax 67 and never looked back.

  • Excerpt: Камера отлично лежит в руке, съемка с рук проблем не вызывает. Кнопка срабатывания спуска очень шустрая, иногда не успеваю перекадрировать снимок, а уже щелк и есть! Взял для серьезных пейзажных, ландшафтных и архитектурных работ. Портрет для рекламы и худфото. Поражает детализация и запас информации. Как говорил один учитель фотографии, главное при съемке снять весь тональный диапазон, а потом делай, что хочешь.
  • Pros: среднеформатная матрица на 40 Мп, 16-битный тиф на 120 Мб; вообще, "среднеформатная картинка", резкость и детализация, оперативность и удобство использования при полевых съемках, всепогодность и низкое энергопотребление и пр., и пр., и пр. Крепление под штатив в двух плоскостях -очень сбалансирована при креплении на штатив, особенно на шаровой головке. Кнопка подъема зеркала выведена сразу на корпус и функция работает пока эту кнопку не повернешь в обычный режим, даже...
  • Cons: Очень медленная запись на карту памяти!!! 2 флешки, но только SD, почему бы SD+CF? Все время горит экран с параметрами -как минус усиленное энергопотребление. Кнопка для снятия объектива находится справа внизу под байонетом. Очень неудобно нажимать на неё, лучше слева, т.к. можно просто выронить объектив из рук. Очень неудобный штатный наглазник и дополнительный, который по-шире. Вообще, это смешные недоразвитые колечки какие-то. У меня все время ресницы в стекло видо...

  • Excerpt: Камера будет востребована профессионалами, рекламщиками. 1,1 кадр в сек совсем не принципиально, студийные головки все равно раньше не зарядятся, это другой класс камер не связанный с репортажем. На кой она любителям, которые с 35мм баловством занимаются. Основной интерес это средний формат по доступной цене, количество пикселов не такое уж и великое, судя по ожидаемым новинкам от Canon Mark IV Ds 32Мп. и новое чудо от Sigma SD1 45Мп на кропе.
  • Pros: Цена
  • Cons: Количество срабатывания затвора неясен. Если на 50000 срабатываний как от пленочных это плохо. Маленький дисплей для среднего формата.
