Excellent for short working distances
4 Star Review   By marcus surrealleous on Adorama - Sep 2, 2013   

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)

Excellent flash, worth the price
5 Star Review   By CMP on Adorama - Jun 11, 2013   

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. O

Very nice ring flash
4 Star Review   By Psychobunny on Adorama - Feb 13, 2012   

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

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. Howe

great product
4 Star Review   By jude on Adorama - Jan 10, 2010   

good for all around use. the ratio feature is very useful. fill light and the second curtain synch are great features. the ability to use the flash off the lens (handheld) and the modeling light makes the flash a very versitile tool.

I love this flash. Macro work is my specialty and this allows perfection to every shot. It's great as a filler light indoors and outdoors. I use it on my pet photography and nature shots. I don't attach the flash to the lens though, as I like to have more

Good Flash, does what it claims
4 Star Review   By Sandia Keith on Adorama - Aug 9, 2009   

Very good flash. I gave it a 4 for night time flash. Many small critters come out at night, and my results are not always consistent. However, the modeling lamp is great for macro work. Since the camera body and flash work together, is it the flash or cam

Pricey but Worth It
5 Star Review   By member gooru - Oct 26, 2006   

Strengths: Simple, Fully Customizable

Weakness: Expensive

I held off on buying this for a long time saying, "That is one ridiculously overpriced piece of junk." However, at some point, all macro photographers realize that they need more light. To get a sharper photo, you have to stop down the lens. Unfortunately, when you stop down the lens, you need much more light. Enter Canon's ring lite. When in auto mode, the ring lite is brain dead simple to operate. Just attach it, point, and shoot. For more advanced work, everything about how the flash might operate can be adjusted. Once you get over the sticker shock (which you should've done when you bought a dSLR in the first place), you'll wonder how you lived without this before. Also, I don't know why the title says G2. It's really for any Canon dSLR and macro lens.

MR-14EX Macro Ring Lite
4 Star Review   By member victorxian - Jan 18, 2006   

Strengths: great for macro

Weakness: pricy

The title is misleading. It's not only for G2 but works with any Canon DSLR. I use it with canon 100mm macro. Macro work is much easier with this little unit.
