Pentax 645D Red Lacquer Limited Edition Now Shipping to US Consumers 0

Thanks to the onslaught of technological advancements across the board there is absolutely no shortage of high powered DSLRs to choose from. However, if you’re looking to differentiate yourself from the pack, then perhaps you’ll want to take a look at Pentax.

Pentax has just announced that their limited edition 645D red lacquer digital camera is now available for purchase in the United States. While the camera obviously won’t come cheap (seeing as how it’s a limited edition) you will be getting quite a bit of bang for your buck. Included in the box is the Pentax 645D camera body itself, along with a O-ST123 leather strap, a body mount cap, and a  DS-80 center-spot-matte focusing screen. But, what’s in the box itself isn’t the only thing that Pentax has paid special attention to, as even the box itself is specially designed and made of paulownia wood.

As if that wasn’t enough for you, the Pentax 645D was chosen as the Camera of the Year by the Camera GP Japan 2011 committee. Of course, dropping such a substantial amount of cash on anything definitely takes some consideration, but perhaps an unboxing video will help you make your choice. Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
