● Compatible with both the VF180 1.2x / VF45 1.2x viewfinders
By attaching the VF180 or the VF45 prism viewfinders (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.

● The unique design makes the MDX-5D Mark lll one of the most ergonomically designed housing on the market today
With both hands on the grips, further improved ergonomic design provides access to such controls as the main command dial and the sub-command dial the both of which are necessary for manual photography not to mention controls for video function.

● Every detail of the housing is precision-machined from a solid aluminum-alloy block to achieve a high-quality texture and design, the colored anodization strengthens the housing's corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance.  All edges have been polished carefully for safety.
