First Pentax camera, first time on this forum.

I just bought the Pentax 645z and it has quickly replaced every other camera I own. My usual setup for stills and video was the Canon 5d mark III with a mark II as a backup. I am a commercial photographer and Videographer full time. I decided to step up to medium format and have been amazed. The camera has completely replaced my canons in both video and still work. Most of my current projects were shot on this camera.

Nice to meet you all. I will be around!

Hey, thank you. And yes, I was so reliant on my canon set, I never thought the video Expecially would live up to the canon. However, I prefer the look and feel of the pentax by far. I have a muted portfolio I use for video and then I shoot 60fps quite a bit at the 1080p and it looks fantastic.
