PENTAX 645D infrared range camera

TOKYO —

Ricoh Co has released the IR (infrared range) camera PENTAX 645D IR. This camera can capture infrared thanks to the placement of a visible light cut filter on the lens. An invisible drawing in a lower, hidden layer of an old painting can be captured through the surface layer. You can see draft drawings, or what a painter originally imagined and sketched, which would normally be impossible to see.

The camera is a great solution for cultural property management. It allows you to see the condition of the object at the beginning, and the process of changing over time. The camera is designed for research companies, museums, libraries and specialized law enforcement units such as CSI units. You can also take a regular, non-IR photographs with an optional visible light filter.

Open price.

    Interesting. I was gonna modify one of my cameras for infrared but I could get this instead.

    I love Pentax cameras. Currently I use a K-30 with Pentax DA 50-135mm lens. I wish I could ad this camera to my collection, as it would provide some amazing shots with some crazy effects.

    "Open Price" translates to something in the high 6 figures (of yen). Not an inexpensive camera.

    The non-IR version of this camera starts at 700,000 yen. I would expect this specialized version to be close to double that, certainly in excess of 1 million.
