Pentax 645D Gets Limited Edition “Candy Apple” Red Lacquered Version

Posted by on Wednesday July 13, 2011 | Uncategorized

The 40-megapixel Pentax 645D has got to be one of the stranger product launches in the last few years.

After years of of pre-release hype, this relatively low-cost ($9,995) medium-format camera finally went on sale in the U.S. this year and then promptly went out of stock everywhere. We can’t even get our hands on a test version of the Pentax 645D to write a review.

The camera continues to generate a lot of buzz, however, especially in Japan. It was recently named “Camera of the Year” in Japan and to commemorate the honor, Pentax has released a limited edition version of the 645D coated in red lacquer.
