Pentax 645z Review from Dylan & Sara Photography

The Pentax 645x camera was an amazing instrument that Dylan & Sara used to capture some night time portraits of yours truly. Check out the entire post here
Here's a sneak peek from the article:

High ISO

The camera performs amazingly well shooting at night or in low light with high ISO. There was very little noise in the files, and when it was present it remained somewhat pleasing. We’d feel comfortable shooting up to 12,800 iso for color images, no question. 25,600 is doable if there is some light source or if you plan on going black and white.
The downside is that you really need the high iso. The combination of 2.8 apertures, a giant mirror slapping around, and 51MP resolution makes shooting at slower shutter speeds difficult. We needed to be closer to 1/250th to feel confident we’d have a sharp hand held image.
It is amazing how much shadow detail is retained with the Pentax. Even at higher ISOs the files help up remarkably in post, we were able to boost a 12,800 ISO shot over a stop in post with no problem.
