Pentax has released its updated RAW codec for Windows, adding support to the Pentax 645D medium format camera. The updated codec works with 32-bit Windows 7 and Vista operating systems, it does not support 64-bit computers.
The new version of the codec now supports the Pentax 645D which began to be available in Japan in May 2010. The 645D medium format camera features a 40-megapixel Kodak sensor, SAFOX IX+ autofocus system with 11 sensor points, weather-proof body, dual SD/SDHC card slots and a glass prism viewfinder.
Pentax said the 645D has been developed to provide super-high-resolution images produced by large image sensors â€” something previously available only on professional models â€” to serious landscape and outdoor photographers.
