Pentax's huge medium-format 645D digital camera has had a public outing in Toronto this past weekend, demonstrating its updated Kodak 44 x 33 mm sensor - that has climbed from 30- to 40-mexapixels since we first saw the concept back in early 2009 - and general all-round awesomeness.  Shooting a single frame per second, the Pentax 645D is apparently intended for scenery and other still-life photography, rather than anything faster moving.  Scolirk grabbed some hands-on time and a demo video you can see after the cut.
