Digital back for Pentax 645 ?

Just saw this at another forum. There's a chinese digital back for Pentax 645 bodies. Only 16Mb but still nice.

Does anyone know more info or is someone poking fun at us?

bazz.

yes, 'only', considering the (supposed) size of the sensor, ie, 6 x 4.5 cm

Most medium format sensors--even at $50,000 for the camera--aren't full frame size. Are ANY medium format sensors full frame? I'll bet the 16mp sensor is just a 24x36 full frame 35mm sensor mounted in a back that fits the Pentax 645. Or something therabouts...

digital back

I am very interested if there is a digital back for the 645 ...
Any one know if there has been one made ... 16 meg is not that big ... but I have friend who owns a company that builds imaging parts for NASA... if I could get my hand on a digital back ... maybe his company could produce a copy... he and i have talked about this .. he said why stop @ 50 meg go with big or stay home ...

If the cost is similar to digital backs for Hasselblad film cameras, might as well get a 645D with a digital back built in.

Well the leaf 80 megapixel comes close with a 53,7 x 40,3 mm sensor. But that is the same size as the 60 mp hasselblad

645 d

I do like the 645D the fact that it sealed really makes it a great camera for where I live and where I shoot ... the outdoors and desert of Nevada... The only thing is they just are not any to be had in the US right now ... I would want to get my hands on one an see how it fits in my hands before buying it...

That's exactly what it is. The page is also copyrighted 2004. And the recommended OS is Win98, Win2000 or WinXP and a Pentium 1.6GHz or higher. Sensitivity is listed as ISO 50. I also doubt the Pentax version ever made it into production as I have never seen any mention of it other than this page.
