Meike MK-14EXT | Macro ring flash for Canon
Meike MK-14EXT is a great alternative to much more expensive Canon’s version, the MR-14-EX Macro Ring Lite, offering nearly the same features at much lower price tag. Meike’s latest ring flash provides all the features and power you’d expect in a high priced ring flash at only a fraction of the cost. Full e-TTL functionality for Canon cameras makes this ring flash a must have. MK-14EXT is a perfect tool for macro shooting or as a portrait ring flash as well.
The build quality of the Meike MK-14EXT is nice, probably better than you expect from the flash with low price tag. The most important feature, brightness, will satisfy the needs of serious macro shooting. MK-14EXT definitely lets you max out your f-stop and ISO. You will be able to easily shoot at ISO 100 1/250 sec. and f/16 (or smaller aperture)
Meike MK-14EXT is compatible with all Canon cameras featuring E-TTL / E-TTL II metering for automatically setting accurate exposures and it has a guide number of 14m at ISO 100 for good light output. The twin-tube design also allows users to set each side to different power ratios, enabling higher contrast lighting when desired. And, it has LED lamps for AF assist in low light.
