February 6, 2014 | Zoltan Arva-Toth | Digital SLR Cameras , Events , Accessories , Lenses | Comment |

Ricoh is planning to exhibit four new reference products at CP+ 2014. Among these is a completely new medium-format DSLR camera - tentatively named the Pentax 645D 2014 - boasting the "latest, super-high-resolution CMOS image sensor" and an articulated LCD screen; a new medium-format ultra-wide zoom lens; a Q-mount telemacro lens and an interesting film duplicator that "produces digital duplicates of silver-halide-film images in combination with a digital SLR camera and a dedicated flash unit." Judging by the product shot - see gallery after the jump - this essentially means a focusing rail combined with a macro bellows, film holder and diffusor screen
