645D II wireless

Do you think 645D II will use FLUCARD or will have itís own wifi build in?

Judging by the direction Ricoh is taking I would assume they would leave it to the FLU card as it appears they leave features as optional attachments in order to keep the cost of the bodies lower.

Mine's purely an assumption as well, but I expect it will be built-in if they had time in the design schedule. This is based on Ricoh's suggestion (in this month's interview) that they're looking into built-in WiFi for future bodies.

But do we even know whether the 2014 645D will have this feature?

I would say they would want to use the flu card as it's a new product however I don't know that 16GB is a feasible capacity for the 645D nor the inability to view raw files...if they do built in wifi great but again that would hurt flu card sales....

With two slots in the camera I wouldn't store RAW files on the FluCard. Its principal purpose is the Wi-Fi signal

If I understand correctly, inabillity to view RAW files is a shortcoming of the connected device, not the card

Given the comparatively (I presume) small expected production of the 645D 2014 I don't imagine O-FC1 sales would suffer greatly.

Your probably right but I was surprised at the number of original 645D's sold...

I hope 645'D to support Flucard as well.
