645Z Firmware v 1.30

I was just poking around the Ricoh JP site and noticed a new firmware version 1.30 for the 645Z. Dated 6/29/2017.
Here is a link.

Latest PENTAX 645Z Firmware Update : Software Downloads | RICOH IMAGING

It lets you adjust the monitor brightness and also lets you change the color to red for better night vision.

Firmware update

Hi

You need to clear any previous Firmware files from your download folder and your SD card and after opening the bin. file drag it to your SD icon.

I was really hoping for a bulb timer like the latest K1 firmware got so I don't have to use a remote any more.

This is really disappointing. I've given them a bunch of feature requests over the last year or so that would be really useful (ability to change the live view focus peaking colour or add marching ants so it doesn't clash with the clip indicator, trap focus, 'proper' mirror lock-up where the mirror stays up between shots for repeat firing in the studio, amongst others). I've heard of plenty of other good suggestions being made to them as well that align with features they have on other cameras or that their competition has, so I don't know how they decided all of a sudden that these are the features we need.

The red illumination would be ideal for astro-photography, which is nice except that there isn't a great astro lens available, which kind of makes it moot. I'd have thought they would have gone for more readily-useful features first,

Pentax 645D memory card question

I have just acquired an almost new 645D, still running original firmware. I have a problem with memory cards.With two brands of Class 10 64 GB cards, the camera gives the code: "Cannot use this card." I cannot find in either of the two 645D manuals anything about card specifications, i.e., no restriction on size/capacity of memory card. It is successfully using a TopRam class 10 32 GB card as well as a SanDisk Ultra Plus class 10 16 GB card. I am speculating that the 645D may have originally been software-limited to 32 GB and that later firmware raised the limit to 64 GB, but cannot find any confirmation of this theory.

Comments and suggestions are invited. Thank you.

If you look up the specs here at PF, it is stated that 645D takes "SD, SDHC, SDXC with firmware 1.01 and higher, two SD card slots". So updating from the 1.00 edition seem to be the first test you should do.

Having said that, you should consider posting your question in a new thread or at least in one having to do with the 645D. That way you have a higher probability of having it read by 645D users with relevant knowledge.
