Lighting up the macro world
A high performance Macrolite flash delivering creative lighting solutions for photographers shooting close-up images, both on location and in the studio.
A ring-flash design allows uniform lighting of small subjects – ideal for wildlife photographers shooting flowers and insects, and those working in specialist scientific applications. E-TTL II metering makes accurate flash exposures simple.
Dual flash tubes can be varied independently, over a six-stop ratio, permitting different lighting styles. Use both tubes evenly for a shadowless effect, or make one tube brighter than the other for relief lighting that emphasises textures. The Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II’s flash head can be rotated around the lens, allowing the dominant light source to come from any angle.
High power output, with a guide number of 14 (ISO 100, m), allows the use of small apertures for maximum depth of field when shooting up close. Colour-temperature information is transmitted back to the camera during shooting, helping to optimise auto white balance.
The Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II can be used as an optical wireless master in a multi-flash lighting set-up, triggering Speedlite flashes set to slave mode. This is useful when using a second flash to illuminate a background, for example.
