Pentax 645D 40MP Camera Believes Size Matters

Image source: DPReviewThis camera laughs at you and everyone you love.

Despite the argument that megapixels don’t matter as much as ISO, this 40 megapixel behemoth from Pentax seeks to remind you that it doesn’t matter how much you suck as a photographer; it only matters that your photos are bigger than everyone else’s.

Joking aside, the medium-format, interchangeable-lens 645D lists quite a few impressive features:  an aluminum chassis, an 11-point autofocus system, 77-segment luminance metering, and on-camera visual effect/parameter customization.

For those with a particular penchant for exposure control, the camera also supports a multi-mode exposure system allowing for high-dynamic range and precise sensitivity manipulation.

The 645D also boasts a long-lasting battery (800 shots at full charge), HDMI output, dual SDHC slots, and a 3-inch TFT LCD.

See the full specification list at the DPReview.

All of this could be yours this May for a measly ¥850,000 (~$9500 USD), if you decide to import from Japan.  No word on a North American release.
