Magnesium alloy was used in the body to dissipate heat away from internal components


They would have done better with copper.

In that case you might end up with a soft bodied camera.

Better still with silver, but there are practical limits, mostly cost/weight related.

A very heavy, soft-bodied camera. Don't drop it!
