Detailed Features

Take a more detailed look into the Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II

Creative close-up flash photography


A ring-flash design allows uniform lighting of small subjects ? ideal for wildlife photographers shooting flowers and insects, and those working in specialist scientific applications. E-TTL II metering makes accurate flash exposures simple.

Creative shadow control


Dual flash tubes can be varied independently, over a six-stop ratio, permitting different lighting styles. Use both tubes evenly for a shadowless effect, or make one tube brighter than the other for relief lighting that emphasises textures. The Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II?s flash head can be rotated around the lens, allowing the dominant light source to come from any angle.

High performance


High power output, with a guide number of 14 (ISO 100, m), allows the use of small apertures for maximum depth of field when shooting up close. Colour-temperature information is transmitted back to the camera during shooting, helping to optimise auto white balance.

Integrates with other flashes


The Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II can be used as an optical wireless master in a multi-flash lighting set-up, triggering Speedlite flashes set to slave mode. This is useful when using a second flash to illuminate a background, for example.

Innovative, instinctive design


Control the Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II using controls on your EOS camera, or via an easy-to-read dot matrix display. A bright LED modelling lamp makes focusing and composition easier in low light, while custom settings allow functions to be personalised to suit your own way of working.

Reliable performance you can count on


Fast, silent recycling ensures that you?ll be ready to shoot at just the right time. The Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II is ready to fire again in just 5.5 sec following a full-power discharge. A self-cleaning hot-shoe with two-line electronic transmission ensures a proper connection with your camera.
