Absolutely Fantastic Gear For Macro

By Jelieta
Rated 5 out of 5

I had been researching for a gear that can really help me in my journey to taking macro photos. I am a woman photographer who loves to plant flowers in my organic garden. I noticed that every year I welcome a lot of different types of insects in my garden. I already have a macro lens but when I use my extension tube I have a hard time of exposing my subject well and most importantly if I go for hand held. In the field were you are not the control of your subject you need to move fastly so you can capture fleeting moments. Then I continue researching for a gear and I stumble into this gear. Due to my need, I decided to purchase one from the company I trusted the B and H - I love them because they will really tell you honestly the pros and the cons of the product. I mean they have dignity. So I purchased this one. I can definitely recommend this to all photographers who would want to elevate their photographs into more amazing one. This is absolutely fantastic gear for macro photos.

very good!

A nice update to the original MR-14EX Macro Ring Lite

By Noel B

Ive been shooting an original MR-14EX Macro Ring Lite since 2002.  After 17 years and ~80K to 100,000 macro-flash pictures, one of the flash tubes is no longer working properly.  I received my new MR-14EX II about a month ago and its working nicely; just as Ive come to expect from Canon.  There are several improvements to the design.  The original focusing lights have been replaced with much brighter LED sources.  They are now quite useful.  The user interface has also been improved making it quicker and easier to change the light ratio between the two flashtubes or to setup multiple slave flash arrangements.  I only wish Canon had been able to utilize a smaller, more pliable cord between the flash head and the power unit.  The new coiled cable is basically the same as the original which has proved very hard on the focusing mechanism of my older Sigma 50mm macro lens.  Its not a problem with the Canon 100mm macros as they have internal focus.  I am looking forward to many more years of great eTTL shooting with the new macro flash.

Excellent addition to Canon's line-up of quality camera bodies and lenses. Highly recommended if low-lighting is an issue with stock flash or if you'd like to unlock the potential for high quality images

This is great gear. I used it with my Canon 5DS and Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens and I used with Kenko Extension tube the result are extremely phenomenal. I got the images I really dream of. I used the image stabilizer of the lens and because I was taking photos of these moving insects so I don't hassle myself to use tripod anymore. I definitely recommend this product to all photographers who want to capture beauty of small insects and things,

Worth the price!

After ten years my original MR-14 finally died. I mostly shoot sand samples with the ring light, and use two different lenses - a 50mm macro, and the 65mm 1x-5x macro. I always had a problem balancing the exposure between the two lenses, and had to do a lot of adjustments to get the color the same. Not true with this flash, the balance between the two lenses is perfect without adjustments.

Canon MR-14EX II Macro Ring Lite

I purchased 2 or 3 similar flashes for macro photography. They did not last at all, they broke down or stopped functioning all together, it was frustrating. So I bought the Canon MR-14EX, granted it is far more expensive the other wannabes, but you get what you pay for. The flash does what it's supposed to do, it's well made and reliable. The guys at B&H are awesome, they stock up on high quality gear and their customer service is impeccable, really high standard. This product is highly recommended.

question

I want to shoot portraits with this. Is it large enough to use the Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 lens? Or the Sigma 50 1.4 Art lens?
Asked by: Mark T.
There is a major compatibility issue with almost ANY lens here. Though it is a great flash, Canon designed it with a major shortcoming, the filter thread for attaching to the lens is only at 67mm. You're pretty much restricted to the macro lenses. I learned this the hard way, after I bought it. It won't even work with the Canon 24-70 lens or the Canon 24-105 lens. I find this really stupid from Canon. The Sigma EM-140 DG Macro Ringlight Flash for Canon will at least go to 77mm, and will work with the Sigma lens you referenced as it has a 77mm filter thread.

Is this light soft or do I need to add some type of modifier?
Asked by: Philip
The simple answer is NO. This light does not provide a soft light. However, I think with some ingenuity you could soften the light, say white cloth or tissue between the source and subject. Hope this helps

Is this compatible with the Canon R5 with the use of a filter adapter?
Asked by: Jennifer
Yes, you can adapt the Canon MR-14EX II Macro Ring Lite to other lenses via the use of a step-up/down ring with a Macrolite adapter. Please be aware that with some lenses this might cause a slight vignetting, but apart from that, usage should be relatively seamless.

Can I use Yangnuo macro ring flash EX 14 RT -canon and Yangnuo remote flash triggers on Nikon 3300d, 5200d and 5300d? If yes, please let me know how to do it?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Yongnuo YN-14EX-C Macro Ring Lite for Canon is technically for Canon. On a Nikon camera chances are it will fire but only in manual.Off camera you will need for the Nikon camera a manual wireless transmitter and a receiver for the YN-14EX-C. And again it will only work in manual.

Is an adapter required to use this Ringlight with the Canon EF 100mm L f/2.8 macro lens?

You would need the Canon 67 Macrolite Adapter (B&H# CAMLA67) to use the MR-14EX II Macro Ring Lite Flash with the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS macro lens.
