Excerpt: After 35+ years of photography, this is my favorite camera. It delivers the details. It does everything I want except tilt, swing, and rise. I can live with that. It can be slow to write. Meh. I'm slow to shoot. It would be faster if I didn't have it cranked to deliver maximum raw images.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: The Pentax 645D is a phenomenal camera and an affordable gateway into medium format digital photography. The image quality is outstanding, and many of the lenses, including the 55mm "kit" lens, can hold their own against more expensive brands.
Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Large Viewfinder
Excerpt: This camera is every bit as good and even better than the one's in line before it. I do weddings and families, no more double shots to make sure every thing was ok with the smiles and eyes open. I've been using the Pentax 645 for almost 20 yrs. and it has yet to fail me.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: I bought this camera 18 months ago second hand but as new from a US retailer. Since I bought it I have run 6 different cameras alongside each other including a full frame Sony a850 and various high grade lenses. My 35mm DSLR cannot compete with the 645D and the Sony system is being sold.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Superb Legacy Lenses
Excerpt: and it's astonishing. 70% of my shots are portrait/fashion/environmental/lifestyle, and the rest is whatever grabs me (street/cityscapes/landscapes); my main box was a Canon 5D Mark II for the past 4 years.The 645d's images are discernably different--note, "different" and not necessarily "better",...
Pros: Attractive, Decent battery life, Easy to grip, Easy To Handle Despite He, Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Battery Life, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quality Build, Weather-sealed
Cons: Heavy, Large Nameplate, Poor Image Stabilization, Poor In Low Light
Excerpt: Bought 645D in January 2014 and immediately tested it in Zion (I shoot landscapes only). Still going through the files but I can say already that the image quality is superb and files are very flexible!
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Very good battery life, Very Good Viewfinder, Very quiet shutter
Excerpt: The 645N has more features than most digital cameras, yet is very easy to use. The images are 3D like, and can be easily enlarged on my 36 inch Canon printer. I think Pentax has a real winner for the advanced amateur and the pro. I use my 645N in outdoor photography and am very happy with it. PJ
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Summary: I had a Canon 5D Mark 2 before, and I love it. But two weeks ago, I bought a Pentax 645D and a 55mm F2.8, I hardly knew that what is a real good camera. I love it so much. The price is good fits.
