Sony Cmos 50 MP

The sensor could be made by Sony 50 MP, 1.3 crop factor and 44X33mm chip. Same as Phase One IQ250.

The native Q macro lens is going to add a whole new dimension to the Q (not considering adapted macro lenses)

1/250 sync speed (with external flash)
1/1000 sync speed with the built in flash.

Only queries are :
Focal length
widest f-stop
IQ (which I presume its good)
Is it 1:1

The lens I have for the Q goes down to F/8 I think... F/44 or so on FF or F/28 or so on APS-C.

It'll be interesting to see what the macro goes to, might be F/64 or similar. Could be useful.

It sure-as-heck better be at LEAST 1:1! I'd hope it'd be closer than that!

I love how they expunged any markings from the 645 wide-angle lens.

Also, I know there are good slide scanners out there, but this film holder is brilliant. Have you ever tried to get good scans of your film, especially velvia? Assuming you have good software, it takes a lot of very careful tweaking, waiting forever for it to scan, and then seeing if the settings were done properly. If you have bad software, this process is beyond painful (EpsonScan, I'm looking at you ).

The bellows suggests there is no built in lens, which therefore means you must use your own. The distances involved means you'd probably need a macro lens, although you'd probably be able to get away with the 18-55 (though the quality may be questionable). Also, this may mean it's brand-agnostic- no K mount required. I'm all for getting users of other brands familiar with Pentax products, reminds me of when there were Pentax spotmeters and loupes.

All in all, this is the most unexpected and welcomed announcement from Ricoh yet, IMHO.

Edit: think about the opportunities for testing macro lenses now with this thing. Print a test chart on 6x7 film and throw it in this.

It seems 645D 2014 body has holes on both sides of the body. Stereo mic?
Drain holes.



To let the water out that leaks in around the tilt screen mechanism

New version of the Repronar???
I love my repronar. I'd like a Repronar-like base for my K bodies, that's for dang sure. Plug it into the PC port and use live view to focus. That'd be amazing.

As someone who has fenangled together many a dodgy film copier to bring my new found film addiction into the pc, I love this new product announcement. Please come to market! It's about the only thing that would make me want to turn my k30 into a k3!

About "pulling an apple": pulling a Leica is a better description, I think!

As long as they don't "pull a Hasselblad," I'm fine. Just imagine if Ricoh started pumping out $10,000 Q7s relabeled with ridiculous monikers featuring mahogany grips, diamond-encrusted logos, and gold tripod mounts...

Well they did the golden LX :-) But that was just kitschy, while the Hasselblad HV is so ugly it will scare children when you try to take pictures!

I'm pretty sure I've never said this about a Pentax product announcement, but...

Every single one of those products sounds very exciting to me. Every single one. The medium format items don't affect me, but they are exciting. I'd love to own a film duplicator (seriously), and a Q telephoto macro sounds like a dream come true. This is easily the most exciting Pentax announcement ever, for me, if it is true.

I have very similar thoughts. Considering my complete lack of funds, I can't really explain why, but I found the prospect of a new 645D very exciting. As for that film duplicator, I think I see one in my future.

A film duplicator of that dimensions will not be cheap. Look at medium format macro bellows.

I'm sceptical about the size of the wide angle zoom. It seems to be in the 1kg class! The film 645 system was quite compact and could replace a high-end 35mm system without significant- or any weight penalties. Eg the 33-55 weigths only 500g, less than professional grade zooms for a 35mm system.

They should make a FF 645 system (that is FF 645). In that way you wont need large and complex lenses in order to go reasonably wide. It might be cheaper too as these new lenses cost $5000+ ...
