This week Pentax has unveiled its medium-format 645Z DSLR, boasting 51.4-million pixels of resolution, a Prime III imaging engine and a top ISO of 204,800. Its also extensively weather-sealed and can shoot time-lapse video at 4K resolution. Full details here.

Elsewhere, a crowd funding campaign is in a race against time to muster up enough funds to produce a new 4x5 peel-apart b&w positive-negative film. 'New55' film, now on Kickstarter, is almost halfway to its target, but still has a long way yet to go.

Finally, do you know what extra accessory you need before you can record 4K video with the Sony Alpha 7s? Or what ISO 409,600 really looks like? Or even what the 's' stands for? Don't worry if you don't - we've compiled the essential list of everything you need to know about Sony's new 4K shooter right here - 9 things you need to know about the Sony Alpha 7s.

That's all for this week.
