The Sony HVL-MT24AM Macro Twin Flash Kit provides TTL metering for close-up flash photography. When working with a macro lens, the effective aperture varies greatly due to the extreme focusing range. The actual aperture of the lens may be several stops smaller than the indicated value, and TTL metering accommodates for this effect without the need for time consuming calculations. This is the ideal system for a macro shooter of moving subjects.

      Comments about Sony HVL-MT24AM Macro Twin Flash Kit:

      Needs to include adapter rings that are difficult to find (72mm, 77mm).

      Needs a change for the new hot-shoe introduced with A99.

      Reduce the size of the bulky controler.

      Remove the cabling, like Nikon R1.

            Very nice macro flash. Comes with diffusers which is great!

            Sony HVL-MT24AM Macro Twin Flash

            By Christopher

            from Ohio, USA

            Comments about Sony HVL-MT24AM Macro Twin Flash Kit:

            I have the identical Minolta version of this flash, and it is a very versatile unit. The flash heads can be independently mounted at different locations on the ring and at different distances from the lens using extendable arms. By keeping one flash further from the subject, you can achieve a ratio effect giving the impression of depth for your subject. You can also attach a diffuser panel to each flash head for a softer light.The flash controller will also work with the flash heads of original Minolta Macro Flash 1200AF, 1200AF-N and newer Macro Ring Flash 1200.

            Expertise: Advanced amateur, 23 years experience

            Problems Encountered: The rubber caps that cover the sockets on the controller where the flash cords plug into are not attached and care has to be taken not to lose them. With both flashes fully extended, the combination gets a bit unwieldy, but it's still usable in a crowd

            Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Minolta macro flash 1200AF-N

            Items I Recommend: Sony/Minolta AF 100mm f/2.8 Macro D lens
