Canon MT-26EX-RT overview

  • 1Description

Offering the flexibility of radio flash capabilities with a design for close-up shooting, the MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite from Canon uses a a pair of flashes to evenly illuminate subjects when working with a macro lens. When both flash heads are simultaneously fired, a guide number of 85.3' at ISO 100 is possible, and extensive manual adjustment allows you to dial in settings down to 1/512 power. Both flash heads are detachable and, using the 2.4 GHz wireless triggering system, the heads can be easily positioned around the subject for more controlled and dynamic lighting configurations, including the ability to easily integrate other flashes into the setup.

When attached to the lens, the heads can be rotated up to 60° horizontally and 45° vertically and each includes a removable diffuser for further adjustment over light quality. Additionally, an illuminated dot-matrix LCD screen lets you make adjustments to the flash in both bright- and low-light situations, its updated white LED focus assist lamps aids in achieving accurate focus on close-up subjects, and the recycling time with 4 AA batteries is from 0.1-5.5 seconds.

    Canon MT-26EX-RT reviews

    MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthy update for macro enthusiast Packaging: same Canon box, comes with pouch with small tab of velcro closure instead of the run around zipper of the MT 24. Access is quick with the velcro tab, but the pouch is less secure when closed. Pouch will go on the closet anyway, so does not matter. Mounting ring: no changes, except for the labeling as 26EX RT, instead of 24EX. Accordingly, with MP-E 65 at 5:1 they still cannot illuminate the object, and heads need to be placed by other means. Main unit: about 20% smaller, which is welcome, making rigs less top heavy. Completely re-designed interface, but main functions are still the same. ETTL vs. manual, ratio control, power control. New also HSS, and RT function. Easy to find my way around without reading manual. Buttons are raised, so easier to press than on 24. This is important in macro, because exerting force on a cantilever (flash unit is high above tripod socket) will cause rig to move and framing/focusing changes. Flash heads: re-designed, a tad smaller. The new Canon diffuser have small hooks that secure them onto the heads, so they are unlikely to accidentally slip off. The old Stofen diffusers still fit as well. The Canon diffusors are possibly 1-2 mm less tall, so give a bit more freedom in positioning the heads. The Canon diffusers seem to be a bit more opaque, which is good for diffusion, but you lose some light. Focusing light is brighter and a bit more blue, no surprise LED vs incandescent. The focusing light button is easier to press than on the old unit, as the button protrudes from the black plastic box, and is not sunken in. Custom function still lets you program double tap on shutter release to turn focusing lights on/off. In practice, the 1/512 power setting is a great addition, particularly for the z-stackers at f/2.8 on the MPE 65. I went right down to the lowest setting for the first couple of stacks. I can aim the heads right at the specimen, and do not have to use ND gel filters to reduce light output. I hope this will also help with reducing wear on the unit. I completely fried a MT24 after some 20K flashes. Will still keep the 24 around for outdoor, where I generally stop down, but for studio z-stacking the 26 rules. New is overheating sensor and protection. Shot 200 frames at 2s intervals with one head at 1/256 and one head at 1/64 and overheating warning did not come on. Good news for us stackers! Bottom line: if macro is your thing, the MT 26EX RT is a worthy upgrade. If not, the 24 will do just fine a while longer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last! Better than any ring light, this system offers infinitely more control for whatever creative effect you can dream. Invaluable for macro applications, it is perfect (and powerful enough) to capture arresting images, like the ones you've seen in magazines and at professional competitions. Absolutely no regrets. B & H has, for the past 20 years, been my go-to source for my diverse photo needs.
