Meike MK-MT24 Macro twin lite flash for Sony
Meike MK-MT24 for Sony is a high-value flash setup that can be used for macro and other flash photography. The Meike MK-MT24S Macro Twin Flash kit is a wireless macro flash kit, designed for macro photography, and is currently available for Nikon (MK-MT24N), Canon (MK-MT24C) and Sony (MK-MT24S). The Meike MK-MT24 is an all-in-one solution for macro flash photography, with everything you need in the box. The use of two small flashgun’s, the R200, with adjustable direction is more versatile compared to a standard ring flash, as it’ll allow you to bounce the flash heads and adjust the direction of the light.
The MK-MT24 is like a more advanced version of the Meike MK-14EXT ring flash. Priced at $299 this setup lets you control the direction of flash more precisely, and you can use the flash heads as a bounce flash for example. Although it is not quite cheap, We’d say the Meike MK-MT24S makes it affordable enough for the macro photography enthusiast, or even a beginner looking to get good results with ease. Meike actually has many improvements over the Nikon R1C1 which is $400 more expensive – it uses standard batteries, has better LED lighting, and most importantly is triggered over 2.4ghz wireless as opposed to infrared.
Meike MK-MT24 is compatible with all Sony DSLR and Mirrorless cameras with MI hot-shoe, featuring TTL metering for automatically setting accurate exposures. It has LED lamps for AF assist in low light. If you’re looking to get into macro photography with an easy to use setup, this is probably the best and most affordable option out there. If you’re looking for a twin ring flash, then the Meike MK-MT24 is certainly a proposition that offers high value for money, being roughly $300-400 less than main brand solutions. MK-MT24 can be used as a macro ring flash, for macro photography and portraits, or you can use it remotely for more creative photography. The kit provides everything you need to get started with macro flash, and other flash photography.
