Japan-only release for the 40 megapixel Pentax 645D DSLR stunner

Cameras, Tech Digest news

Pentax 645D.JPGLooking forward to getting your hands on Pentax’s long awaited 40 megapixel 645D DSLR? Well you’re in luck…providing you can get yourself on a plane to Japan, that is.

Yep, Pentax’s impressively spec’d DSLR will only be on sale in the Land of The Rising Sun.

It’s a real shame, as the top-range kit has some great features, such as the PENTAX Original Real Image Engine, dual SD/SDHC card slots, a silky SAFOX IX+ autofocus system with 11 sensor points, a 14 bit A/D converter, a dust-and-weatherproof design and a dust removal mechanism should it get a bit mucky nonetheless.

The camera should be hitting stores in May, but it’ll come with a whopping 850,000 Yen price-tag. That’s roughly £6,300, without shipping the 1.4 Kg kit, so best start saving now.
