Pentax 645D at Camera Electronic!

In 1984 Pentax first release its original 645 medium format camera. In 1997 they upgraded it to the 645N which added auto focus capabilities and a full rage of auto focus lenses. Back then Camera Electronic was proudly the number one reseller of the Pentax 645 system in WA. Earlier this year in march Pentax unveiled the much anticipated 645D. After 5 years of development its finally here. We were lucky enough to have a demo unit come to the store so we could test it out...

 From what we saw it was amazing, 40MP - 44mm x 33mm CCD sensor, 3.0" LCD screen and is compatible with the existing 645 system lenses. In your hands it felt pretty comfortable and well balanced for its size in comparison to a standard DSLR. If you want to know more about this camera  feel free to call the store and one of us would be happy to help you.

Polaroid is back with new ways to have instant prints.

As many of us are aware Polaroid 600 film has been in short supply and we can only speculate as to when it will be available again. However if it's instant photos you want there are other options. Like the handy new format Polaroid 300. Polaroid 300 works the same way as the 600 film before it, but on a smaller scale. The prints come in at 4.6 x 6.2cm which allows for a much smaller and more convenient camera also. Even easier to carry around your neck on social occasions when you'll capture great moments and have instant prints to share and enjoy.

Another great idea Polaroid have come up with is the new Pogo system of cameras with Zinc (Zero Ink) printing technology. There are two options here also. The first in is a digital camera with built in printer. The "Polaroid Two" is a very clever little camera indeed. With the ability to shoot a digital photo, just the same way your used to, then print it out in about 40 seconds. The Zinc technology means you never have any ink cartridges to replace, just pop in the film pack and your ready to go. The prints come out at 2x3 inches in size and with a peel off back to expose a sticky sheet.

But wait there's more!! Our mates over at Polaroid also have this cool Pogo Zinc printer. This nifty item lets you have the enjoyment of instant prints from any mobile phone with bluetooth file transfer capabilities. That's right, this pocket sized inkless printer will print your mobile phone images without any wires at all! Any dgital camera with pict bridge can connect via a cable to print instant photos as well. Visit our showroom at 240 Stirling St Perth to see these great new products for yourself.
