formally announced the launch of the new medium format 40MP 645D camera.
It appears to be an impressive camera. It touts a Kodak made CCD sensor that's claimed to be "high performance" with an effective resolution of 40 megapixels.
It shoots to two SD/SDHC cards and has a new 11 point AF system that is claimed to give good coverage of the view finder area.
It does only sport a 98% coverage view finder though, which shouldn't be too much of an issue for most users.
It also sports a new HDR function that takes 3 different exposures and automatically merges them into a single high dynamic range image.
So far we don't have a firm price. I'm hoping it comes in below $10k as that would really change the market landscape and potentially push Canon and Nikon to offer competitive products. We can only hope!
