    It looks like it could be the spanking new Pentax digital 645. Somebody's got some $$$! Perhaps they are private art university students. I'd make some calls to some schools if I had found it, starting with the aforementioned private art institutions.

    P.S. Duh! Of course it is a Pentax. I just saw the strap!

    Not a Pentax 67 model.

    May be a Pentax, but it's not a 67 or 6X7, and doesn't resemble my 645. My guess is it's one of the newer digital Pentaxes but not a 645D.

    Of course, this doesn't tell us who shot the film; he/she may not have anything to do with the guys in the photo. (I haven't watched the video yet.)

    Edit: Now I've watched the video; nice photos but the whole thing reminds me of an extended iPhone ad.

    Yes, on second look, it is something like a K20D. What initially caught my eye was what looked like heavy scalloping on either side of the prism, which is only on the 645 digital. But it was hard to tell from a photo that small. The lettering on the left and the black "box" on the right hand grip look like those on the K20D, not the new digital 645. In that case, they aren't necessarily rich art school kids.
