Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX Flash
The Digital Picture
21 June 2007
Excerpt: As the name implies, the Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX Flash is primarily suited to macro flash photography. The close subject distances inherent in macro photography require narrow aperture openings to obtain adequate DOF (Depth of Field). These narrow openings require lots of light - or very slow shutter speeds. Slow shutter speeds dictate the use of a very stable tripod - and a motionless subject.
Summary: We certainly got some great shots using a 55mm marco. Longer shots are more difficult to achieve with the lights causing hotspots if care isn’t taken, so these lights aren’t necessarily ideal for beginners.
Pros: Control and power, wide range of features
Cons: Limited rotation around the lens, flash mount too easily detached from the lens, price
