Canon MR-14EX Reviews

Works with Canon RF100 2.8 L Macro

By David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-20

Purchased in hopes it would work with the Canon R5 and RF 100 lens. I can confirm it does. Just be sure to get the 67mm adapter.

More than a ring light!

Being rather compact, the MR-14EX II can get into tight places where more bulky strobe lights can't go. And it is as easy to use as a Speedlite 600EX II-RT.

Great addition

I had been using an off camera flash and this does such a much better job. I have been very happy with it.

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.

Great technology. Many settings to learn to use

Right out of the box (settings on automatic) I got wonderful exposures doing macro. I would have preferred a longer coiled wire for more reach when using an extension bellows.

Awesome updated ringlight

By Bernard
Rated 4 out of 5

Like the older Canon ringlight, this flash has become my mainstay, for both high macro work with Canon's 65mm 1-5x lens (usually as the only flash) and with their 180mm & 100mm macro lenses (usually as a fill light with another flash as the main). This model has updated controls and a wider manual range - thus faster flash speed - which is better than the older one for flying insects. The only other option I'd like to see with it is a radio link to other flashes, rather than just the optical link - sometimes in macro work the other flashes are behind the ringlight and don't see the ringlight go off.

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

It can't because the mr14 is not as powerful it is for macro photos for small items like a diamonds on a ring.
