645D IR


The 645D IR is released today:-

(in Japanese, Excite English Translation Here.)

After all, it is essentially a 645D with the IR-cut filter removed. The production volume is targeted to be in 100 units per year, btw. It is further stated that when an IR-cut filter is added back by mounting onto the front thread of the lens, the 645D can be used again as a normal camera.

Yet another thing that I wonder is why this press and news is posted at the Ricoh website instead of the Pentax one? Did they intend to market the 645D IR as a security camera that took only still pictures? What is the point actually? :-o
