Medium-format digital cameras are out of reach for most, but Pentax has been providing ones on the “affordable” side (under $10,000), for a few years now. Their new guy, the 645Z, packs a brand new, friggin large, 51 megapixel CMOS sensor.
For any aspiring photographer looking for a camera to begin their journey, the Ricoh GR should be one of the first stops. The GR packs mid-size DSLR imaging in a pocketable and lightweight form factor that isn’t anything but a pleasure to carry around and shoot with.
Ricoh’s new GR Digital IV is stocked with the same 28mm f/1.9 lens (fast) that made its predecessor awesome and a new 0.2-second autofocus. (Faster.)
