Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-26EX-RT Flash in Detail

Capture macro and close-up images full of detail thanks to a powerful, precise and highly flexible twin flash system that recycles quickly and silently for the creative lighting of small subjects where maximum control over light power and direction is essential.

The twin light design allows each flash to be individually positioned on the lens ring and the angle altered to suit the subject. Each flash is fully removable with tripod sockets on each for mounting to external supports such as tripods or lighting stands if required. A powerful combined guide number of 26/78 (ISO 100 in metres/feet) means the unit is highly usable in a wide variety of situations. High luminance white LEDs are built into both flash units, with adjustable brightness, to allow easier focusing and modelling before the flash is fired.

The focusing lamps can be turned on by a double depression of the camera shutter button and remain on for 20 or 60secs depending on preference. Use the flash as the master unit and operate other Speedlites remotely using either optical or radio wireless control. All controls and custom functions are controllable from either the camera's LCD or the flash, with the latter featuring a dot matrix display for the same degree of usability as other latest Canon Speedlites.

Take control of macro lighting and control shadow harshness with the special flash diffuser and assign custom preferences to control various aspects of the flash performance such as focusing lamp brightness, LCD panel display illumination or flash intensity. Intuitive operation using the same controls as other Speedlite flash units gives this flash a high usability factor. A sturdy metal mounting foot, with a one-touch lockable lever, secures the unit to the camera safely and efficiently while a slanted design stops forehead intrusion when working at close range.

Our Verdict

The closer you get to subjects, the more your stifle light making it both difficult for your camera to focus and for you to get the most detail in your picture.

This Macro Twin Light from Canon is specifically designed to alleviate this loss of light and to draw the most detail, and highest image quality, from your subject by providing the right amount of light. 

Advanced controls via the operation unit, or even physical removal of a single flash unit from the ring allows you to alter the amount of light provided by the MT-26EX-RT (not a catchy name) so that your subject is neither blindingly bright, nor too dark.

Macro ring lights are particularly effective when used in outdoor close up photography, or when photographing products.
