Creative Expansion Card System
Every Creative Expansion Card is designed to interface with the
Dynax 9xi just like a sophisticated software program works in
a computer. Simply slip a card into the card door slot to create
a wide range of effects with surprising ease. This makes your
Dynax 9xi more functional. More versatile. Which results in photographs
that best suit your subjects and the way you wish to photograph
them. In addition, the Quick button provides an even greater measure
of controllability and responsiveness when combined with the action
of some cards.
Fantasy Card 2
The Fantasy Card 2 lets you create soft-focus or dream-like effects
in your picture, without changing lenses or adding filters, by
automatically changing the focus during exposure or between multi-exposures
on a single frame. This card's two modes let you keep your main
subject in sharp focus while surrounding it with a slight "zooming"
effect or with a soft halo of light.
Sports Action Card 2
The Sports Action Card 2 is ideal when shooting fast-moving subjects
or unpredictable events. When this card is activated, the Dynax's
Expert Program Selection is automatically biased to favor fast
shutter speeds. In addition, when a Zoom xi Lens is attached to
the 9xi, five different APZ (Advanced Program Zoom) programs can
be manually selected. All will continuously adjust the focal length
so your picture remains well composed at all times.
Exposure Bracketing Card 2
This versatile card provides both ambient and flash exposure bracketing
in a series of 3, 5, or 7 frames in any exposure mode. In ambient
bracketing mode, the change between frames can be set to 0.3-,
0.5- or i-stops and the film will advance at up to 4.5 frames-per
second. When the camera is set to M mode, you have the choice
of bracketing either by changing the shutter speed or aperture.
In all other modes, the bracketing will be done by changing the
camera-controlled exposure setting(P mode) or settings (A or S
The change between frames in a flash bracketing series can be
set to 0.5 or 1.0 stops. When the flash is in M mode, the camera
will bracket by changing the lens aperture. In addition, the card
can be used when a non-dedicated flash or studio strobe is connected
to the camera's PC terminal.
Data Memory Card 2
The Data Memory Card 2 stores the following data for up to four
rolls of 40 exposures; exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture,
lens focal length, maximum aperture of the lens, exposure compensation
and film speed. You can recall data to the data panel when you
want to check the settings used for previous exposures. And, after
four rolls have been exposed, a warning light appears to remind
you that information from the first roll will be erased automatically
if another is exposed. All data on the card may also be erased
Automatic Program Shift Card 2
The Automatic Program Shift Card 2 automatically exposes a three-frame
series of shots at different shutter speed/aperture combinations
without changing the overall exposure. The card can be used in
any exposure mode and the amount of change is manually selectable
at 1, 2, or 3 stops. This quickly and automatically provides the
different effects obtained by shutter speed and/or aperture settings.
When you insert the Panning Card into the Dynax 9xi, the camera
automatically selects the slowest possible shutter speed, so the
background appears to flow around a sharply focused main subject.
In addition, the metering index is displayed in the camera's viewfinder
to help you create a desired photographic effect, as well as monitor
your panning technique.
This card lets you pre-program the Dynax 9xi to shoot a series
of time-lapse images. The length of the intervals can be set from
one second up to 24 hours, providing uninterrupted, automatic
operation for scientific, industrial or nature applications.
Customized Function Card xi
The Customized Function Card xi lets you reprogram a wide range
of camera functions to fit your personal style of photography,
- Standard setting when the Program Reset button is pressed
- Exposure modes: P/A/S/M
- Exposure Adjustment: - 4.0 to + 4.0
- Metering mode: 14-segment Honeycomb Pattern Metering/Center Weighted Average Metering
- AF Area: Multiple sensors/local sensor
- Frame number: increasing or decreasing numbers
- Film rewind: Automatic or manual start
- Film leader: Rewound into cartridge or left out
- Auto DX Memory: On or Off
- Automatic Flash when required in P mode: On or Off
- Lens function button or AF control button: (on Zoom xi Lens AF 70-210mm Zoom, AF 100-300mm Zoom, AF 200mm Apo, AF 300mm Apo, AF 600mm Apo, AF Reflex 500mm); Focus hold, center area AF, continuous AF
- Automatic grip sensor activation: On or Off
Once you've changed the functions you want, just remove the card and the camera will operate according to your changes.
Background Priority Card
With the Background Priority Card, you can select the approximate
depth of field you desire by turning the front dial to move the
pointer on the metering index. The card's program then maintains
the chosen background sharpness by automatically controlling the
lens aperture should the focal length or subject distance change.
Multiple Exposure Card
This card allows you to make up to nine separate exposures on
a single frame, using any of three selectable modes: full metered
exposure, gradually increasing exposure, or gradually decreasing
Multi-Spot Memory Card
The Multi-Spot Memory Card stores up to eight spot exposure readings.
With it, you can easily analyze and solve complex lighting situations
with ease. The exposure the camera sets will be the average of
Highlight/Shadow Control Card
The Highlight/Shadow Control Card lets you make highlight- or
shadow-biased exposures automatically. Highlight exposures are
increased 2.3 stops from normal value and shadow exposures are
decreased 2.7 stops to reproduce high- and low-key scenes more
The Portrait Card uses a special exposure program to maintain
the best aperture and shutter speed for hand-held portraits. The
card automatically maintains the largest aperture possible to
limit depth of field and make your subject stand out from the
background, balancing it against a shutter speed which will prevent
blur from camera shake or subject movement. The Portrait Card
is very effective when you use a large caliber telephoto lens.
The Close-up Card controls the aperture setting to provide optimum
depth of field for close-up and macro pictures. It causes the
exposure system to automatically adjust the aperture according
to the magnification of your subject. This card is very effective
when macro lenses are used.
This card is at its best for capturing the spontaneous actions
and candid expressions of children at play. Five different APZ
programs are manually selectable to provide varying degrees of
subject/environment balance. When a Zoom xi lens is attached to
the Dynax 9xi, the APZ program is activated.
This card is especially useful for photographing a friend or family
member in front of a landmark or other interesting location. The
Travel Card automatically adjusts the depth of field to provide
maximum sharpness for the scene you're shooting. Because the Dynax
9xi can detect lateral motion, the card is also programmed to
minimize subject blur when you take a picture on the move or from
a moving vehicle. Normal or Wide lenses are effective especially
when a Zoom xi lens is attached to the Dynax 9xi.
