Pentax convert in Japan

Hi all.

Sold my Canon system I was using in my studio here in Japan and have converted to a Pentax 645D. Never looked back. Loving this camera.

My photography is at for anyone interested. If you're in Japan, let's hang out. It's always fun meeting other photographers.

Some day I will have to rent a 645 to see if it "fits" with my shooting style. Back in the day when I had a studio we shot a lot with Pentax 67! In the meantime enjoy your new gear. Would love to see some sample photos.

Question: what kind of studio lighting are you using?

Welcome to the forum. I'm just waiting for a second hand 645d I might be able to afford to come on the market. I thought when the 645z came out there would be a bunch at good prices, but it never happened. I guess people just like them too much.

Welcome, that's an expensive change for a studio to make, hope it continues to work well for you.
