Oct 17.17 Just in Case: Magnesium Wraps Top-End Cameras, More
Lightweight. Mobile. Durable. Magnesium’s all three, putting its use in the forefront of lots of consumer products, where consumers want to go light and strong. Because of its unique properties, magnesium electronics bodies can be made thinner and lighter.
The Nikon D3’s exterior shell is made of a magnesium alloy, protecting the brand’s original 12.1-megapixel FX-format SLR from invasive dust, moisture and electromagnetic interference. Nikon says, “it keeps you shooting when lesser cameras would fail.”

Canon has introduced the PowerShot G1 X Mark III (with magnesium alloy body) to its G1 X lineup. The point-and-shoot (the lens is not interchangeable) supports full-HD video recording of up to 60fps with stereo audio recording, and is scheduled for availability in November at an estimated retail $1,299.

Samsung’s using POSCO’s specially designed duralumin sheets (a high-strength aluminum alloy that mixes copper, magnesium and other elements) for its Notebook 9 laptop, weighing in this year at just 799g. The premium high-strength sheets are not as vulnerable to denting as the magnesium-lithium sheets the company had relied on.
The magnesium sheets are made with a precision controlled, rapid solidification process, are tempered multiple times and heat treated to a final thickness of 0.5mm--a process that POSCO says increases the surface hardness by more than 20 percent and the yield strength by more than 50 percent, compared to its competitors, while still maintaining a high level of machinability.
