  • Built in Modelling Light
  • High output with maximum guide number 22 with twin heads or 24 with single head
  • E-TTL autoflash control including high-speed FP flash, FE Lock, FEB and flash ratio control1
  • Operates as the master unit in a wireless E-TTL autoflash system
  • The MT-24EX mounting ring can be attached directly to the front of the macro lens and has a forward tilting control unit. As the control unit will not hit the flash, even when the mounting ring is rotated, the design makes the MT-24EX ideal for use with any of 5 Canon EF macro lenses.
  • The flash heads are fitted to the rotating mounting ring and can be individually rotated both horizontally and vertically for maximum flexibility and control.As well as this it is possible to detach the flash heads from the mounting ring further expanding the range of possible lighting setups.
  • The MT-24EX is a highly adaptable lighting system for all kinds of close-up and creative photography.
  • High power output offering a maximum guide number of 22 when shooting with both flash heads or guide number of 24 when shooting with a single flash head (ISO 100, metres)
  • Mounting ring can be rotated 50 degrees upwards or 30 degrees downwards - the control unit is designed to not interfere with the mounting ring with smaller Canon macro lenses
  • Individual flash heads can be tilted vertically by 45 degrees upwards or downwards as well as horizontally by 60 degrees inwards or 30 degrees outwards for total flexibility
  • Flash heads can also be removed from the mounting ring for advanced lighting set-ups
  • Evaluative through-the-lens autoflash control balances natural light with flash to deliver natural looking photographs
  • E -TTL features include high-speed FP sync mode, Flash Exposure (FE) Lock, flash exposure compensation and flash exposure bracketing for complete photographic control
  • Flash ratio control1 possible that allows flash output to be controlled between each flash head - control is possible in 13 steps of ½ stop increments from 8:1 ratio through to 1:8 ratio
  • Wireless flash control allowing multiple Speedlites to be controlled by the MT-24EX - up to 3 groups can be controlled when used with EOS-1D, EOS D30, EOS-1v, EOS 3 and EOS 30/33
  • Ideal for use on any of 5 Canon EF macro lenses including the MP-E65mm f/2.8 1-5X
  • Built in modelling light enabled by the depth of field preview button or shutter button
  • Nine Custom Functions (CF) that enables the MR-24EX to be customised to the user
  • Compatible with external power packs for faster recycle time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Canon's macro system is without peer, both in available options, quality, and ease-of-use. As an amateur, I was able to pull this sophisticated flash out of the box, mount it, and adjust the ringlight flash to my new 50D within minutes ... and fire-off crystal-clear macro shots at the end of my 100 mm USM macro lens. This is an incredible piece of equipment and yet easy to use if you just read the instructions and follow them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need it If you know macro, you know you need serious light. All the people on the Internet that have a problem with the 65 mp-e (boohoo no AF) and this flash (ermahgerd its so harsh) don't know macro. It's a totally different beast. You need this if you're serious about macro. If you wanna take pictures that make the viewer wish they could shrink to the size of a grain of rice to ride on a bee like Falcor from the Neverending Story, get it and a serious macro setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Important to my Macro work I have had this flash unit for 5-6 years and have never had a problem. I chase bugs and therefore handhold. Would be impossible without this flash. I have Kirk and RRS flash brackets for my 580 and 600 but they are bulky and hard to maneuver in tight spots. And the bracket set-up is heavy. I can carry the MT24 on a 180mm and 7D MkII for hours. I have fallen in a river and submerged it and my 7D MkII and 180mm. All survived unscathed. Certainly not recommended but proves it durability. Camera and flash fell 4 feet to the floor and still functions perfectly. Takes great images. As to the adapters, expensive but necessary annoyance. If I have a complaint it is that once in a while I see a shot that is 10-12+ feet away and the flash won't reach that far... but it is not supposed to. After I tried to drown and then drop the flash I decided I couldn't live without it and purchased a back-up unit. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it's weight in gold Very good product, Would be nice if it would not need a step-down adapter for the 180mm lens. Would also be nice if that adapter would be included either with the lens or the flash unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from versatile flash Great flash to use for macro work, but I wish that adaptor rings could be made available to use with other lensed especially now that the new macro lens that was just announced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Dont let the Price or Weight Fool you, this lens holds its own!" "I purchased this Portrait lens from your Church St location in Toronto, Ont as a birthday gift to myself. Upon opening the box, the lens sure doesnt feel like much (with its compact size and plastic housing, it is extremely lightweight compared to a stock 18-55 lens) But I am extremely impressed by the speed of the lens and the image quality. The lens does autofocus with my D90 thanks to the focusing motor located inside the camera. Super crisp images and the portraits turn out amazing! This lens is probably the best bag for the buck over other more expensive portrait lenses!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for macro, but with long-term issues I've used the MT24 on the 5D2 and the 5DsR for the past few years. It works well on the MP-E 65, the 180 Macro and the Zeiss 100 macroplanar. Adjustment options with angling light, ratio control, rotation, are all working fine. For the MPE65, at >3:1, the flash rather illuminates the background because the flash-heads cannot be angled sufficiently steep/brought sufficiently close to the lens barrel. Then it is better to mount them on independent supports (Wimberley lamps). The flash also performs well with z-stacking; I routinely shoot 60-120 frames stacks at about 2 second intervals using a Cogynysis Stackshot motorized rail. The light is rather harsh, so a Stofen diffuser attachment is necessary, possibly even add further softening diffusors. Canon has no diffusors available. With MPE 65 at high magnifications, the coiled cables connecting the flatheads to the controller are a bit short. 50% longer would not hurt at all. In such cases, I connect the flash with a TTL cable, and move the controller unit forward. One let-down is that with around 10-20K flashes, it needed repairs twice because one of the flash head stopped firing. The long-term reliability is not what I would expect from such a rather pricey flash. I would think on the order of 200K flashes would be a reasonable time when a flash needs some TLC.
