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.

● The unique design makes the MDX-D800 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.

● Two Fiber-optic cable sockets
By connecting the Fiber-optic cable (L-type) to the socket, the light of the digital camera's built-in flash is detected and connected to an external strobe.
