Pentax Corp has revealed its development of a single lens reflex (SLR) medium format digital camera featuring an 18-Mpixel CCD solid-state image sensor.

The company is currently exhibiting a mockup image at the Photo Imaging Expo (PIE) 2005, held in Tokyo from March 17 to March 20, 2005.

The company is planning to start marketing the camera within 2005, and the price is also expected to be around ?1 million.
