2.4 GHz Wireless Control
2.4 GHz wireless technology enables long-distance transmission, adding more flexibility to your shooting. Additionally, 5 groups with 32 channels each help to prevent interference and disturbance when several wireless systems are working close to each other.
Compact Design
The MF12 Macro Flash is optimized for close-up photography due to its compact design and unique ability to be mounted directly to a lens via the included adapter rings and mounting ring or placed around the subject with the included flash stand. Also, its size and wireless capabilities make it a good option for general photography as well.
Flexibility
Instead of illuminating forward only, each flash can rotate to a different angle and slide around the mounting ring for correct positioning. Whether fine tuning the light effect or creating another lighting style, the MF12 Macro Flash heads will help you experiment until you reach the best effect you need.
Rechargeable High-Performance Battery
The powerful built-in lithium battery supports approximately 500 full-power flashes with a 0.01 to 1.7 second recycling time. The battery is also easily rechargeable through an included USB Type-C cable.
Color Effects and Color Temperature Adjustment Set
Included with the 2-light kit are are two MF-11C Color Effects and two MF-11T Color Temperature Adjustment Sets. The Color Effects Set contains an assortment of colored gel filters to expand your creative capabilities. Meanwhile, the Color Temperature Adjustment Set contains an assortment of gel filters to adjust the color temperature of the flash head. This allows you to match the color temperature of the ambient light wherever you are shooting.
Mounting Rings
Included in the 2-Light Kit is an adapter ring kit with 8 different sizes, which match most lenses. The sizes are 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, and 77mm.

Godox MF12 Reviews

Really good

Works and performs as advertised. I would recommend it for macro photography. But over priced

Great system: light weight & powerful

At the recommendation of other macro photographers, I bought this kit. It's very well designed and built. It's so lightweight that I can continue to shoot handheld for long periods of time. The flash units recharge over USB-C and hold a charge for a very long time. They're so powerful that I use them on Manual mode and dial their power way back.

Great piece of kit

Solid construction and super versatile design. Weak point is the metal mounting ring to the plastic lighting mount, which sometimes slips causing the plastic ring to rotate. I found a sweet spot where it fits kore snugly, but maybe something they can fix for a future design.

Let me preface the review by stating I hate the Nikon R1C1 system because the flashes always had problems and it grossly overpriced. My Bolt VM-160 ringlight served me well but I was never happy with the quality of light but for the price, as I said, it served me well. This MF12 system is a macro dream. The flashes are rechargable which I didn't think would be good but can easily handle 300-500 shots which is a standard macro outing. I can't praise this system enough. It is the best I've used yet.

nice set up.

Flash heads to not fall!!

By Eric

What a ridiculous thing someone complained about. That person didn't have the mounting ring on tightly if the flash heads caused a rotation due to gravity. I've never had this happen. Flash heads are good for hundreds of shots at 1/8 power before needing a recharge. The kit is great in that it comes with a case and colored gels. Great kit! Highly recommend!

Love all my Godox stuff

Added this as a third head to the macro kit. Replaced my Nikon R1 kit so I can use this with either my Nikon or Sony equipment with the R2 transmitters. Works just as well as the 3x more expensive Nikon version.

Great for creative problem solving!

These little usb chargable flashes are in my huge location lighting kit. I use them for complex environmental portraits and shooting rooms or other indoor environments in specific cases. Specifically they come in most handy when i want to throw a tiny amount of light onto something in a scene but there is no other way to get a light stand or strobe in that spot. They can be hidden within the scene and can put little pockets of light hard to light spots. My favorite use is inside lamp shades with a 1/2 or full CTO gel. When i am using my own flashes to light an environment and i want a lamp to still appear as if it is "turned on" I can just tape one of these inside the lamp shade. The little stem also has a 1/4 20 socket on the bottom so you can screw them onto lightstands, or studs or clamps as well if you want. Haven't used them a single time for close up macro work but they are a great little tool to keep in your bag for creative problem solving.

The Godox MF12 Macro Flash 2-Light Kit does include the 62mm mounting ring to attach the heads to the FUJIFILM XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro Lens. You will need to add the Godox XProF TTL Wireless Flash Trigger for Fujifilm Cameras. Here is the link: https://bhpho.to/3ziDgki

Has anyone considered or purchased a 3rd flash for this kit? My theory is a 3rd flash will make the light bigger and therefore softer. Can anyone confirm or reject this theory?
