PentaxPentax 645 Digital: It was around March 2005 when we were informed about the new Pentax Digital medium format camera. At that time there was nothing more to report on than the fact that Pentax Corporation announced the first Pentax 645 Digital medium format camera at the Photo Imaging Expo (PIE), held in Tokyo (March 2005). The expectation was that in 2006 Pentax was ready to introduce a final product or at least a pre-production model almost close to a final unit, but so far nothing like this showed up at any event like IFA (Germany) or PhotoPlus (USA). We got a little bit more information about this new Pentax medium format camera, and it seems that around PMA 2006 we may see a more final version of the Pentax 645 Digital.

According to the information from Pentax the new medium format camera is currently under development for a market launch in 2006. Though a specific marketing time is not official we assume the PMA 2006 (Orlando, US) will be the first world event where the Pentax 645 Digital makes its appearance in a more detailed and final version. At this moment there are three conceptual mock-ups showcased to collect data from visitors and professional users of high-end camera products.

Pentax medium format - mock-up cameras
Pentax decided to make three mock-ups offering different design themes in order to receive a wide variety of comments and opinions from their clients and (future) customers. It is interesting to see that one mock-up has no information panel on top of the camera, the other two have similar panels on top. Although the information Pentax will get is not the most important weight figure, Pentax will consider these comments and opinions very seriously in deciding the final design.
