Sample Photos

In this section we present a number of photos taken with the 645D. All photos were shot in RAW and converted with Adobe Raw Converter. Unless otherwise noted the photos were then "smart sharpened" (110%, radius 0.7) in Photoshop CS5. Click on a photo to download the full sized JPEG file.

Dancing Kids

These images were taken at f/16 with the FA 80-160mm f/4.5 zoom lens in auto-focus mode. No exposure compensation. The image to the right has not been sharpened. Click on an image to download it in full size.
