Essential macro accessory

Camera Geek, Canon
10 August 2013
  • Conclusion: I have used my MR-14EX extensively with the 100mm f/2.8L Macro and have been very impressed with the high degree of lighting control I can achieved with this flash unit. Both ETTL and manual settings are smooth and predictable. The left and right flash tube control is a nice feature that enables sculptural modeling of light on the subject. There are only two cons to report, as others have pointed out: the battery hatch is constructed poorly and difficult to open.
  • Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Fast recycling time
  • Cons: battery hatch is constructed poorly, buttons are sunk in and hard to press

Pricey but Worth It

gooru, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: I held off on buying this for a long time saying, "That is one ridiculously overpriced piece of junk." However, at some point, all macro photographers realize that they need more light. To get a sharper photo, you have to stop down the lens. Unfortunately, when you stop down the lens, you need much more light. Enter Canon's ring lite. When in auto mode, the ring lite is brain dead simple to operate. Just attach it, point, and shoot.
  • Pros: Simple, Fully Customizable
  • Cons: Expensive

Genau das was ich brauchte

Huesnue11, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich bin kein ambitionierter Fotograf, habe einen Ringblitz für die Beleuchtung von Makro(-Zahn)-aufnahmen gebraucht. Mit dem Makroobjektiv von Canon und den einschlägigen Einstellungen werden meine Wünsche ausreichend erfüllt.

Begeisterung

Klaus H., Amazon

  • Summary: Mit dem Canon EF-S 1:2,8 / 60 mm Makro-Objektiv ein tolles Duo. Für den geplanten Verwendungszweck muss allerdings zunächst erst einmal das Frühjahr kommen, dann kann ich endlich vernünftige Makroaufahmen von Blumen mit "Besuchern" machen. Auch wenn das Blitzgerät ziemlich teuer ist, bin ich froh dass ich mich als Hobbyfotograf dafür entschieden habe. Ich kann nur jedem raten über diese teuere Anschaffung nachzudenken.

Excellent !

  • Summary: Ce flash fait souvent parler de lui quant à son rendu "plat"...Je pense que ceux qui affirment ça ne savent tout simplement pas s'en servir !! Avec un réglage indépendant des deux côtés, on peut obtenir des effets de lumière très artistiques, que ce soit sur des insectes, des plantes, des objets... Concernant le prix, peut être que d'autres font identique, moins cher (SIGMA par exemple). Or, la qualité, ça a un prix...et Canon mérite son prix.
