Use it daily

By

Use for dental photography on every patient. Have two and they work very well.

Excellent for short working distances

By

from Philadelphia PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use it for photographing coins, stamps for which it is ideal. For outdoor flash of flowers likewise excellent. Due to its low GN, the light fall off is rather severe with working distance. I use it with my 100mm f 2.8 macro lens, for which it was intended. My camera is a Canon rebel XSi. Photographic butterflies etc. is OK if you can get very close (i.e. 0.5 X scale for the 100 mm f 2.8 lens)

Essential macro accessory

By

from Southern Colorado

I have used my MR-14EX extensively with the 100mm f/2.8L Macro and have been very impressed with the high degree of lighting control I can achieved with this flash unit. Both ETTL and manual settings are smooth and predictable. The left and right flash tube control is a nice feature that enables sculptural modeling of light on the subject. There are only two cons to report, as others have pointed out: the battery hatch is constructed poorly and difficult to open. Also, the control buttons are very small and sunk too deep into the face of the unit making them difficult to depress.

Excellent flash, worth the price

By

from San Francisco, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I'm using this flash for general macro photography with my f2.8L 100mm. I first tried a cheap LED macro flash and was so disapointed that after a year of using it I invested in the MR-14X, it's build quality and performance make it well worth the price. One huge advantage to having this flash is less prep time with a tripod, those moving subjects are now caught with the macro!

Perfect for my work!

By

from Fullerton, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

At the same time that I purchased this accessory, I purchased the Canon EOS 7d since I needed a digital camera, cropped-frame, with HD video capability for scientific research documentation purposes (I am a university professor). I preferred to stay with Canon since I already had an assortment of EF lenses and I have always been completely satisfied with Canon products. Most of the additional lenses and accessories I chose that were required for my work at this time (macro photography for specimens, location landscape documentation, laboratory training multimedia presentations) will all be usable in the future as I plan to invest in a full-frame Canon EOS within a few years. All of these accessories have met or exceeded my expectations! My only criticism of this unit is that you need different adapter rings for different lenses – it would be nice if Canon could develop a more-universal mounting system so that the MR-14EX could be used more quickly with different size lenses. Kudos also to Adorama, who has what must be the most extensive and impressive inventory I have yet to find online making one-stop shopping realistic (California does not have such a photography 'superstore'…). Packing was secure, shipping was fast, and personal contact service for advice was friendly and professional all the way. A wonderful experience – Thanks!

Very nice ring flash

By

from Maryland, USA  -  Casual Photographer

Easy to use flash ring fits 58mm lens filter but need to buy adapter ring for all other sizes as this does not come with extra adapters. The flash is a true ring light and is somewhat diffused due to the white plastic. Can cause lens flair because it's so close to the surface of your lens. I need to use the hood with my Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens in order to open my camera aperature up for a good shot. Well made, very easy to use. If I were to buy over again, I would get the more expensive MR-24 instead. But, I still like this unit once I got the hang of it.

Filter lens

By

from Boston  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a great ring flash. If you have the L series macro lens then you must also get the 67c adapter. I was online searching for a long time and saw few comments that you can not use a filter to protect the lens if you decide to use the ring flash. However in the end i was able to buy B + W 67mm UV (Ultra Violet) Haze Multi Coated (2C) Glass Filter #010 which has a front accessory thread, so that the adapter can be fitted on to the filter. Giving the configuration of lens--filter--adapter--ring flash. Hope this helps.

Collin M  Canon's macro flashes come with a 67mm thread adapter which is the size of the thread on the 100mm 2.8L is, which IS a macro lens. You can also buy adapters for different lens threads of 52 58 and 72mm
