Contact us for more compatibility information.

Customizing the housing offers additional functions. You can replace the 5-pin wired YS converter connector on the top of the housing with a 2-pin wired strobe connector for an additional cost. This modification provides two 2-pin wired strobe connectors so you can connect two SEA&SEA YS-Series strobes.
*This modification does not support automatic TTL flash adjustment.
*It requires the 5-pin Sync Cord/N.
YS-Series Strobes:
YS-01, YS-02, YS-250m, YS-110a

Compatible with the VF45 1.2x
By attachment of a 45° viewfinder (view magnification of 1.2x) with Amici prisms to the eyepiece on the housing, the magnification increases to 1.2x, allowing the entire field of view to be seen clearly. Recommended for users committed to strict compositioning and focusing.

Manual adjustment is possible without releasing the grips
Designed for easy operation so you can comfortably reach the main command dial and sub-command dial with your fingers, while keeping your hands on the grips. Delicate operations are possible even while you are looking through the viewfinder. The larger diameter of frequently-used dials allows you to change the shutter speed or aperture value with a light touch while supporting the framing. This frees you, the photographer, to concentrate only on the perfect chance for a great picture.

TTL converter connector employed as standard
The included type-N 5-pin wired connector accepts the optional YS Converter/N. The converter works with the YS-Series strobes to provide automatic TTL flash adjustment.
*The converter requires the 5-pin Sync Cord/N for connecting to a strobe.
*The MDX-PRO D3 housing comes from the factory with these type-N connectors: one 2-pin wired connector and one 5-pin wired connector.
*To use two SEA&SEA YS-Series strobes with the factory-equipped type-N connectors, you must use the 5-pin Dual Sync Cord/N.
