First shoot with Brand New 645Z: weird download?

Yes, the images all came into Lightroom upside down

---------- Post added 10-20-20 at 09:24 AM ----------



Lightroom Creative Cloud - so, yes it is the latest iteration

I think camera is in DNG mode, I'll have to check - does that make a difference?

Latest firmware - yes

This doesn't happen in Lightroom when downloading from my Nikon cameras

---------- Post added 10-20-20 at 09:26 AM ----------



By out of sequence I mean they did not download in the same order as they were shot, so if you were working a scene and tried a few different aperture / shutter speed combos the images of that scene were not adjacent when looking at them in Lightroom

I use a card reader

This is not my first 645Z, but it's been about 5-7 years since I owned one
Had a fun morning shooting a pretty waterfall across the Bridge of the Gods on the WA side of the mighty Columbia
When I got home and downloaded the images into Lightroom
  • The images downloaded completely out of sequence time-wise

  • Every single image needed to be flipped vertically

  • Every single image needed to be flipped horizontally


What's going on and can I go into MENU and keep this from happening next time?

Thanks

The used 645Z I just picked up shows firmware version 1.23
Is that the latest firmware?

Buying a 645Z from the Ricoh.eu website?

Does anybody have a handle on whether Refurbished or Open Box is the better way to go?
Open Box costs $1,200 more - is it worth it?
I had heard that with a Nikon refurbished body it's kind of a crap shoot re: how much use the camera has had. I heard you could get a camera with less than 20 clicks on the shutter or a camera with thousands of clicks?

Equivalent focal length - 67 lens on 645

Hi,
Just want to make sure I have this right.
Using the .80 formula, that would mean the 28-45mm lens is essentially a 22mm - 36mm lens in 35mm terms, and the 120 is a 96mm
Correct?
Thanks

I just started the search for a Pentax 645Z camera and inadvertently ended up on the Ricoh EU website where a Brand new 645Z body is being offered for 3999 euros, a better price than I have found anywhere here in the US
Is there any downside to purchasing a camera from the EU website (provided I can even get them to ship to the US)?

Will this work/fit on my 645D

https://m.ebay.com/itm/Pentax-Magnifier-645-Magnification-2x-magnifying-eyepiece-genuine-from-Japan/142472000788

Does it seem like a good hack for improving focus with MF lenses on the 645D?
Is the fact that it only magnifies the center of the image too limiting to make it worthwhile?
Thanks

Pentax 645D: why can't I get the Focus Point selector to move from the center????
Posted By uintaangler

I move back and forth between my Nikon D810 and Pentax 645D and every time I pick up the Pentax I am reminded of why I use the Nikon 90% of the time - FOCUS!!!!!
All my Pentax lenses are manual Focus lenses, all good lenses: 35; 55; 120 and I am always fighting to figure out how to absolutely know for sure if I am focused on what I think I am focused on :mad:
Today's problem: I cannot get the focus point to move off dead center to another one of the 11 available focus points.
I just hit the RESET button on the body - I have the focus knob set to SEL - and still cannot get the red dot to move from dead center.
Has anybody else experienced this particular malfeasance?
Thanks,
Bob

Couple of weird problems with my 645D

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

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

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

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
