MUCH LIGHTER THAN PREVIOUS MODELS
The dimensions are almost the same as those of the MDX-D810. However, the MDX-D500 is approx. 400g lighter. The improvement is due to a more precise machining method.
Important controls such as Info, ISO and FN have been positioned on the right and left sides of the housing making it easily accessible while holding the grips. Playback and enlargement of the focal point may be achieved with one lever action.
ONE-TOUCH LOCK FUNCTION FOR THE AF LOCK LEVER
In AF mode, the AF lock lever may be easily activated, allowing for focus lock by pressing just one lever.
HIGH-QUALITY LUMINESCENT BUTTON DECALS
High-quality luminescent button decals. Controls will glow in low light conditions.
MAIN COMMAND DIAL
The main command dial is located on the right-hand side of the housing. The sub-command dial is also located close to the shutter release lever, allowing for easy access of both controls.
DIOPTER ADJUSTMENT DIAL
The camera's diopter adjustment dial can be operated from the housing. This feature is effective when two or more people (with different eyesight) use the housing.
EQUIPPED WITH MOVABLE FOCUS/ZOOM GEAR
When the focus/zoom dial is pulled out, the gear inside the housing will move outward allowing for lenses with large diameters to be easily mounted.
