Phase One 645 SLR Camera

The Phase One 645 Camera System is now shipping. For a little under ten thousand euros – €9,990 to be exact, or about $15,700 US – you can have your own complete system consisting of the 645 body, a P 21+ back, 80 mm F2.8 lens and Capture One software.

There are 5 configurations to choose from based on selected camera back: P 45+ (maximum resolution, fine details at 39 mega pixels), P 30+ (up to ISO 1600 sensitivity, fast capture, 31 mega pixels); P 25+ (near full-frame at affordable price, noise-free exposures up to 1 hour, 22 mega pixels), the above-mentioned P 21+ (fast, unlimited burst capacity, small RAW file size, 18 mega pixels ) and the P 20+ (1:1 aspect ratio, cost effective, entry-level solution, 16 mega pixels).

The 645 SLR camera is in 6×4.5cm format with an electronically controlled focal-plane shutter and through-the-lens (TTL) multiple mode auto-exposure (AE) and autofocus (AF).

Phase One said the 645 system is an open platform, designed to support pro photographers’ choice of lenses and digital backs or film operation to achieve superior image quality. The camera system comes with a warranty covering 3 years or 300,000 shutter actuations, and is backed by full support and service of a global team of Phase One dealers.
