Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX – a double-headed macro unit for creative close-ups

The Canon Speedlite Macro Twinlite MT-24EX is a macro flash unit that gives macro photographers maximum control over light power and direction for creative shooting.

Who is it for?

This Twin Lite is designed for macro specialists who want to creatively light their small subjects with maximum control over light power and direction. It mates perfectly with any of the Canon macro lenses but is most especially useful when paired with an MP-E65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro lens. Specifically aimed at photographers shooting macro subjects, from insects and flowers to still life and abstracts, it gives more control and more options when lighting your subjects.

Key features

  • E-TTL II flash metering
  • Guide Number of 24
  • Wireless Master unit
  • Ratio control of flash heads
  • Focusing light on each head

The Guide Number of 12 for each flash head (giving a combined power of 24) provides the MT-24EX with enough power to light most macro subjects easily. For more power it can be used as a master flash to control one or more slave flashguns, like the Speedlite 580EX II or Speedlite 430EX II, allowing for more creative and complex flash set-ups.

The lens mount allows the flash heads to be rotated around the front of the lens so that light can be directed from top and bottom, or left and right, or the heads can be removed from their mount and placed on a flash bracket or remote mini tripod. The focusing lights located on each flash head make it easier to focus accurately on subjects when working close in. This, and the preview strobe flash activated by pressing the depth-of-field preview button on the camera make using the flash much easier and more efficient.

The six-stop flash ratio available between the independent flash tubes allows you to create interesting lighting effects quickly and simply. If this is combined with the master flash capabilities to control another flashgun as a third channel, very complex lighting situations can be created.

  • Ratio control between flash heads

A six-stop ratio between the flash heads makes the unit very creative to use. By rotating the flash head around the front mount of the lens, light can be directed accurately from the top and bottom or left and right.
