An excellent tool for macro work.

  • Excerpt: A great way to light up those tricky macro subjects. Previously, I'd used a Canon 580EX II off camera (with spiral cord) to assist in macro flash work. But hand holding the OC flash made it difficult to work with. This unit frees up my hand and allows me to concentrate on the subject.

Great Tool To Have

Tony, B&H Photo
21 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Great way to light macro subjects. Lots of options to position the heads as well as individual power settings to each head. It is a bit ungainly getting it set up with the cables and brackets and heads. But once mounted, it's good to go. It does feel just a bit dated construction wise, but hey, light is light. I highly recommend the sto-fen diffusers. The light is just to harsh without them. I'm pleased.

Great Flash but improvements are needed

  • Excerpt: We use this flash to freeze microscopic fibers that move on microscopic objects. The flash allows for sharpness that is beyond compare; however, it doesn't transfer light to the object in the best way possible. This HAS to be tweaked. Significant research and development is needed to properly diffuse the light.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable
  • Cons: Poorly Diffused

New World of Macro

History Guy, B&H Photo
18 July 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a terrific piece of equipment with a lot of built in flexibility. There is one significant catch--if you don't own a Canon macro lens, there are extra conversion parts needed to attach the flash to the lens you do use--and right now, the Canon 58c adapter is not available. Without it, using this is generally a pain. When it finally arrives, I'll probably absolutely love what it helps me do.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Powerful Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Beware The Extra Parts

Meets my Expectations

  • Excerpt: I use this product mainly for macro photography, nature, flowers bugs and spiders. When in burst mode I get 4-6 shots, that helps me when I want to focus stack. I like having so many axix of adjustment for the flashes and I am only beginning to explore the flexibility this offers.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output, Versatile

Expensive but works well

  • Excerpt: Being able to adjust the position and flash ratio of each macro flash head allows for flexibility and produces great results. You can even remove the heads and place them off-camera. I used this flash to photograph butterflies with a 90mm macro lens and the results were excellent. You can even use this flash as a master to control another flash as a slave. I wish this product were not as expensive and was wireless like Nikon's equivalent. The wires can get in the way.

The Right Tool For The Job

Jon, B&H Photo
19 March 2012
  • Excerpt: This is what you need for macro photography, especially if you're going to reach out with a longer (150 or 180mm) macro lens. If you are only using a short(er) macro, the Ring Lite will do. This does everything it says it will do, but keep in mind, when you attach this rig, it is not easy or comfortable to be hiking around with it for hours. It is well-made, comes with very useful bag.

Very good results - better if wireless

  • Excerpt: The flash works excellently and has a consistent interface with other Canon flashes. Works with ETTL which makes it easier. I would have preferred if it were wireless (i.e.
  • Pros: Attach Securely, Uses ETTL, Versatile

Canon MT-24EX versus MR-14EX

David Styles, B&H Photo
7 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I owned Canon's Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX and later replaced it with the Canon MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite. I have taken thousands of close-up pics with both, so this review will assist those considering both these options. These flash units are essential if you are a serious about macro photography.
  • Pros: Indispensible for macro, Reliable output, Superior to MR-14EX, Versatile
  • Cons: 100mm L needs adaptor, Due for an update

A Must to Hand Hold

Jeff, B&H Photo
1 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I wish canons twin flashes were wireless like the Nikon model. The light is somewhat harsh but with the Sto-fil difussers you have many options to make the light softer. Best of all is you can get the shot no matter what the light conditions.
  • Pros: Attach Securely, Powerful
