Quantity

The Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX gives serious close-up, nature, and macro enthusiasts a different option in macro lighting - a directional quality of light, as opposed to the rather "flat" character of the traditional ring lite.

Two separate flash heads can be swiveled around the lens, can be aimed separately, and even removed from their holder and mounted off-camera. Like the MR-14EX, the new Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX is fully E-TTL compatible with all EOS bodies, including digital SLRs, and even allows Wireless E-TTL flash control with one or more 550EX and/or 420EX "slave units". It also provides easy ratio control of each flash head's output, over a six-stop range.

Key Features

- When used with Speedlite 550EX units, wireless control of up to three slave groups is possible, with first or second curtain synchronization
- Mounting ring can be attached directly to the front of the macro lens
- Forward tilting control unit will not hit flash, even when mounting ring is rotated to full 50° extent
- Large, easily read LCD panel
- Includes dedicated hood eliminates flare when used with Canon MP-E65mm f/2.8 1-5X

Ratio Control
Manual mode permits power from full to 1/64th

E-TTL
Wireless autoflash is capable in conjunction with one or more 580EX or 550EX flashes

Direct attachment
EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro (non-IS version), and MP-E 65mm Macrophoto lenses require no adapters. The EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM is usable via Macrolite Adapter 72C, and EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM via use of Macrolite Adapter 67. Or can be used with other lenses with the use of a matching Macrolite adapter.
