The Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX and Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX are macro flash units compatible with E-TTL II/E-TTL/TTL autoflash systems.
Read this instruction manual while also referring to your camera’s instruction manual.
Before using the MR-14EX/MT-24EX, read this instruction manual and your camera’s instruction manual to familiarize yourself with macro flash operations.
When the MR-14EX or MT-24EX is attached to an EOS camera, almost all automatic exposure control for flash photography is handled by the camera.
Although the MR-14EX/MT-24EX is an external flash unit, it works automatically and seamlessly like the camera’s built-in flash.
It is automatically compatible with the camera’s flash metering mode (E-TTL ll, E-TTL, or TTL).
The camera controls the MR-14EX/MT-24EX automatically in the following flash metering modes: 1.
E-TTL II autoflash (evaluative flash metering with preflash reading/lens distance information) 2.
E-TTL autoflash (evaluative flash metering with preflash reading) 3.
TTL autoflash (off-the-film metering for real-time flash metering) Regarding the camera’s available flash metering modes, refer to the “External Speedlite” specification in the “Specifications” of your camera’s instruction manual.
The camera instruction manual’s chapter on flash photography will refer to cameras having 1 and 2 above as a Type-A camera (compatible with E-TTL II or E-TTL).
And cameras having 3 (compatible with only with TTL) are called Type-B cameras.
* This instruction manual assume that you are using the MR-14EX/MT- 24EX with a Type-A camera.
MR14_MT24_00.fm Page 3 Tuesday, December 20, 2005 4:35 PM COPY 4 This manual covers both the MR-14EX and MT-24EX.
The operation procedures in this instruction manual assume that both the camera and MR-14EX/MT-24EX’s power switches are ON.
Icons are used in the text to indicate the respective buttons, dials, and settings.
They match the same icons found on the camera and MR-14EX/MT-24EX.
The (1) / (3) icons indicate that the respective function remains in effect for 8 sec.
This instruction manual uses the following alert symbols: : The Caution symbol indicates a warning to prevent shooting problems.

When the camera’s shooting mode is set to (Program AE) or (Full Auto), E-TTL II/E-TTL fully automatic flash photography will be enabled, making it as easy as normal AE shooting in the or mode.
Focus the picture and check that the icon is lit in the viewfinder.
If a standard flash exposure was obtained, the flash exposure confirmation lamp will light for about 3 sec.
Fully Automatic Flash Shooting MR14_MT24_02.fm Page 18 Saturday, January 23, 2010 10:45 AM COPY 19 Just set the camera’s shooting mode to (aperture-priority AE) or (manual exposure) to enable macro flash shooting with E-TTL II/ E-TTL autoflash.
This mode is effective for controlling the depth of field or obtaining the standard exposure for both the subject and background.
You set the aperture as desired, and the shutter speed is set automatically (30 sec.
Based on the set aperture, E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash is used for the shot.
Since a slow shutter speed will be used for low-light scenes, using a tripod is recommended.
If the shutter speed display blinks, it means that the background exposure will be underexposed or overexposed.
Adjust the aperture until the shutter speed display stops blinking.
Select this mode when you want to set both the shutter speed and aperture manually.
Standard exposure of the main subject is obtained with the flash.
The exposure of the background is obtained with the shutter speed (buLb, 30 sec.
With (shutter-priority AE), you set the shutter speed (30 sec.
- 1/X* sec.) as desired, and the camera sets the aperture automatically.
However, this mode is not recommended since you cannot set the aperture.
In the or mode, the result will be the same as shooting in the mode.
Automatic Flash in Each Shooting Mode Aperture-priority AE Manual exposure MR14_MT24_02.fm Page 19 Tuesday, December 20, 2005 4:36 PM COPY 20 The MR-14EX’s flash range is shown below.
The MT-24EX’s flash range largely depends on the flash head’s position.
MR14_MT24_02.fm Page 20 Monday, January 18, 2010 6:41 PM COPY 21 You can adjust the flash ratio of flash tubes/heads A and B or fire only one of the flash tubes/heads.
This can create shadows on the subject to give a more sculptural look.
The flash ratio can be set in half-stop increments as follows: 1:8 - 1:1 - 8:1 (13 settings) 1 Select .
The extreme left or right setting will fire only one of the flash tubes/heads.
mn Setting the Flash Ratio A:B = 1:1 A:B = 4:1 Only flash tube/head A Only flash tube/head B Since the exposure will be controlled automatically, there is no need to calculate the exposure.
MR14_MT24_02.fm Page 21 Tuesday, December 20, 2005 4:36 PM COPY 22 If the camera has a depth-of-field preview button, pressing it will fire the flash continuously for 1 sec.
It enables you to see the shadow effects on the subject and the lighting balance.
The modeling flash also works with a wireless, multi-Speedlite system.
Modeling Flash The value of the bar in the flash ratio scale below is indicated in parentheses.
In terms of aperture stops, the flash ratio range is equivalent to 3:1 - 1:1 - 1:3.
If the picture is taken while is not displayed, flash tubes/heads A and B will fire at the same output.
