Features



YS Converter/C can be built into the housing


YS Converter/C can now be built into the MDX-6D housing. With the (optional) internal YS Converter/C, the ergonomics of the housing system will be greatly enhanced. TTL exposure-compensation and switching between TTL and Manual modes are controlled from the housing. Remaining battery power can also be checked from the housing.



Compatible with both the VF180 1.2x and VF45 1.2x viewfinders

By attaching the VF180 (#46112) or the VF45 prism viewfinders (#46111) (magnification ratio of 1.2x) to the housing, the magnification increases by 1.2x and entire field of view can be seen at the same time. Recommended for users committed to strict composition and focusing.



Port can be replaced without opening the housing

Port lock can be now activated from outside the housing. The housing is also equipped with a lens-lock release button which allows the lens to be replaced without opening the housing. The port lock can also be activated from inside like previous SEA&SEA housings.
