A SAFOX11 phase-detection autofocus module utilizes a 27-point array, including 25 cross-type points, for precise focusing in lighting conditions as low as -3 EV. Flexible white balance control and accurate exposure metering is possible using the Real Time Scene Analysis System, which is based on an 86,000-pixel RGB sensor, to deliver consistent results based on color, brightness, and subject-recognition abilities.

The durable magnesium-alloy body, with die-cast, aluminum-alloy chassis, incorporates 76 seals to render the 645Z both weatherproof and cold-proof. Dual SD memory card slots are compatible with both SDXC UHS-I memory cards, as well as the dedicated FluCard for wireless image transfer and remote camera control. When shooting tethered, a new USB 3.0 interface helps to expedite file transfer between the camera and connected computer. Accompanying the 645Z's release, a broad system of 16 different Pentax 645 lenses is now available, ranging from wide-angle to telephoto, including both zoom and prime lens designs.
