Couple of weird problems with my 645D
Posted By uintaangler

I recently fired up my 645D after several months of leaving it sitting on the shelf
I've got a couple of weird things going on that I can't figure out how to fix
I am hoping somebody can tell me how to correct them both
  • the camera is shooting in monochrome and I can't find where in the MENU to change it back to normal color

  • the focus confirmation ( green light - beep ) isn't working on manual focus


Thanks,
Bob

Just picked up a used 645D and am having a hard time finding one of those high quality tempered glass, easy to install, screen protectors to protect that lovely display.
Can anybody send me a link for one I can purchase online?
Thanks.

SMC Pentax-A 645 45mm F2.8 for 645Z, 645D

Asking Price
199.00 USD

Item Location
Salt Lake City, UT (United States)

Item Description
Manual focus wide angle lens with a field of view corresponding roughly to 30mm in the 35mm format
If you own any Pentax Medium Format Camera, this is a very handy lens to own.
Works great on both the 645D or 645Z and is waaaaay more affordable than any of the newer lenses released by Pentax ( Ricoh ) for these two amazing cameras.
Very nice copy.
I recently got a super deal on the SMC 645 45-85mm Zoom, so this one lost it's place in the bag
Please use PM to contact me.
I have done a few deals here and have excellent online selling credentials that I will be happy to share with you.

Anybody out there know the 645D menus well enough to be able to hazard a guess as to why I cannot seem to get down to ISO 100 no matter what I try?
Obviously C,3 Expanded Sensitivity is where I have to go and I have that set to "ON"
But when I depress the ISO button and scroll the rear dial - the lowest setting that shows up in the top display is 200
I am open to any and all suggestions, this is a brand new camera from Adorama and I'm hoping this isn't some sort of malfunction
Thanks.

How do you set the ISO to 100 and is it a good idea to do so?
I have heard that cameras don't perform well below their native ISO, in other words, more is lost than gained
Thanks

I had to go into the menu and pick extended sensitivity just to get the ISO setting below 400

I just took delivery on a new 645D, can I go straight to this firmware update or do I have to install each one sequentially?

SMC pentax 645 300mm - MF vs AF?
Posted By uintaangler

I already own a very nice copy of the SMC Pentax-A* 645 300mm F4 Manual Focus Lens - do you think the SMC pentax-FA* 645 300mm Auto Focus lens would focus fast enough on the 645Z to shoot moving animals or birds in flight?
Seems to me if it can't do that, I might as well save some money and stick with the MF version I already won
Thanks,
Bob

I had no issues with the first firmware update but I keep trying to do this second update and can't get it done
Put a cleaned SD card in my reader, the download is going to the hard drive on my Mac, copying the file to the card in the reader, put it in my 645Z as instructed, turn on the Z while holding the Menu key and the download does not begin
Can anybody suggest what I might try?
Thanks,
Bob

Last evening I attempted to use a brand new Ricoh 0-RC1 Remote Shutter Release with my 645Z and couldn't get it to work
I used one all the time with my 645D with no problems at all
Is this a compatibility issue or pilot error?
Thanks,
Bob

645Z - RAW: Pentax PEF or DNG?
Posted By uintaangler
Replies: 12
Views: 3,831
In the REC Mode Menu you have the option of choosing either Pentax PEF or DNG
I picked DNG just because I know Lightroom won't have any issues with DNG files
Is there a compelling reason to choose PEF over DNG?
Thanks,
Bob

Gareth,
I just read through all 5 pages of the review on Luminous Landscape and didn't see any reference to manual focusing
Please let me know if you can find your way back to the marching ants when you get your new camera.
Thanks.
