Pentax Introduces 40-megapixel 645D

Pentax unveils its 40-megapixel medium format digital camera called the 645 Digital.  It features a 44mm x 33mm sensor, a three-inch LCD, a pair of SD/ SDHC card slots, an 11-point AF sensor, a dust removal system, 77-segment multi-pattern metering system, shock-resistant chassis, and a battery life that can last for up to 800 flashes.  This digital camera can produce high-resolution images with just a fraction of the price of similar medium format cameras.

The Pentax 645D will be released in Japan beginning May 2010 at a retail price of 850,000 yen (US$9,442).
