The most basic way to evenly illuminate a subject is to fire a camera-mounted flash unit directly at the subject. With close-ups, however, a regular flash unit would illuminate the subject from an acute angle and shadow the bottom of the image. Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX is an ideal solution for eliminating these annoying shadows. Mounted on the lens rim, its circular flash tubes evenly illuminate the entire frame from all directions, enabling high-quality, shadow-free close-ups of flowers, insects, jewelry, candies and more with ease.
Partial flash firing adds depth to close-ups.
Photographers can deliberately create shadows and emphasize dimensionality in close-ups by firing just one of Macro Ring Lite's two flash tubes. Modeling flash may also be fired beforehand to determine how the shadows will appear. Like all EX Series Speedlites, the MR-14EX supports high-speed sync flash and FE Lock. It can also serve as a master flash unit, allowing wireless control of multiple slaves.
