Automatic flash metering
Compatible with all EOS digital SLR cameras, the Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX offers fully automatic E-TTL II flash metering for accurate flash exposures in all situations. Each flash head has a Guide Number of 12 giving a combined power of Guide Number 24. This provides enough flash power even when working at high magnifications.
Control the two flash heads together or independently for creative results. Adjust the ratio control between the flash heads within a six-stop range to create complex lighting effects.
A circular lens mount* allows the twin lites to be rotated around the lens for lighting either from the sides or above and below. Remove the two flash heads from the mounting ring and place them separately for greater control over light direction or more complex lighting.
Wireless Master flash
Use the wireless master function to trigger remote EX-Series Speedlites. Controlling a third lighting group of one or more slave Speedlites enables you to light other areas of the scene, like the background, more effectively.
Working at high magnifications can make focusing difficult. A focusing light on each flash head provides subject illumination to aid manual focusing.
Two different modelling flash settings enable you to fire a strobe pre-flash with the depth-of-field preview button. The default setting fires the two tubes at the appropriate power setting to allow accurate judgment of where shadows will fall.
Powered by 4xAA batteries or external power packs like the CP-E4, the Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX is lightweight and portable. AA batteries provide fast recycling so you can continue to shoot without having to wait between shots.
With nine Custom Functions, the Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX can be tailored to suit your personal requirements.
