Good flash, needs to be updated

Evildogsofdoom, B&H Photo
23 October 2014
  • Excerpt: The Sony HVL-MT24AM is based on the old Minolta macro twin flash and still uses the old IISO hot shoe , which Sony no longer uses on any of it's own cameras. Sony also limits this flashes appeal by only supplying 49 and 55 mm adapter rings. There are macro lenses available in A-mount, which use different sizes. Sony might sell more if 72 and 77mm adapters were widely available.The flash itself works very well, with a real deal of flexibility. Like the mini soft boxes!

Inadequate

A-mount is dead, B&H Photo
16 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Needs to include adapter rings that are difficult to find (72mm, 77mm). Needs a change for the new hot-shoe introduced with A99. Reduce the size of the bulky controler. Remove the cabling, like Nikon R1.
  • Pros: Versatile
  • Cons: Bulky

Sony HVL-MT24AM Macro Twin Flash

Christopher, B&H Photo
20 November 2007
  • Excerpt: I have the identical Minolta version of this flash, and it is a very versatile unit. The flash heads can be independently mounted at different locations on the ring and at different distances from the lens using extendable arms. By keeping one flash further from the subject, you can achieve a ratio effect giving the impression of depth for your subject.

  • Conclusion: Att använda: 4 Hållbarhet: 4 Denna makroblixt med två sladdmonterade blixtlampor är identisk med Minoltas Twin Flash Controller (MFC-1000) beträffande handhavande och tillbehör. Det skiljer dock 1 och ½ sak: Sony saknar kontakt för anslutning av ringblixt och hålet för extern strömförsörjning är pluggat i höljet men kontakten finns på insidan. Det är ganska enkelt att montera isär kontrollenheten och borra upp hålet och därmed kunna ansluta en 6V= strömförsörjning.
