Pentax PAMS 645
This camera was used for Architectural Photogrammetry
I have spent the last 10 years looking for one of these ,very little info on them . I finally found this one in Germany with fitted Pentax aluminium case .
C 1987 Cost US $ 600
I saw a pic of 2 of these cameras used by the Japanese Police force
they were about 1 meter apart and riding on top of the Police van .
Used to calibrate measurements on accident sites.
The PAMS 645 is a microprocessor controlled metric camera with a picture size of 49.4x39.6mm2.
Only used with 45mm f/2.8 lens with a fixed focus of 8 m for long range photogrammetry and uses exclusively 220 roll films.
For the lack of Reseau ,the PAMS 645 is equipped with a vacuum back which keeps the film flat during exposure.

There was also a Pentax PAMS 645G C 1993 ,but I have yet to see even a photo of this.
