Cautions for firing continuous flashes
To avoid degrading and damaging the flash unit due to overheating,
do not fire more than 20 continuous flashes. After 20 continuous
flashes, allow a rest time of at least 10 min.
If you fire 20 continuous flashes, and then fire the flash again
repeatedly in short intervals, the safety function may activate and
restrict flash firing. While flash firing is restricted, the firing interval is
automatically set to a time between approx. 8 and 15 sec. If this
happens, allow a rest time of at least 10 min.
For details, see “Flash Firing Restriction due to Temperature
Increase” on page 69.

<a> is displayed on the LCD panel.
If the flash exposure confirmation lamp does not light or if the subject is
dark (underexposed) when you check the image on the camera’s LCD
monitor, move closer to the subject and shoot again. You can also set a
higher ISO speed when using a digital camera.
“Fully automatic mode” refers to <A>, <1>, and <C> shooting
modes.
20
Using E-TTL II and E-TTL Autoflash by Shooting Mode
Simply set the camera’s shooting mode to <f> (aperture-priority AE)
or <a> (manual exposure) and you can perform advanced macro flash
shooting using E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash.
You can perform flash shooting while obtaining a standard exposure of
both the main subject and background while considering the depth of
field.
Select this mode when you want to set the aperture manually. The
camera will then automatically set the shutter speed, matching the
aperture to obtain a standard exposure. If the scene is dark, a slow
sync speed will be used to obtain a standard exposure for both the
f main subject and background. Standard exposure of the main subject
is obtained with the flash, while a standard exposure of the background
is obtained with a long exposure using a slow shutter speed.
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.

P
O
Select this mode if you want to set both the shutter speed and aperture
manually.
a Standard exposure of the main subject is obtained with the flash. The
exposure of the background is obtained with the shutter speed and
aperture combination you set.
C
When the shutter speed is manually set with the shooting mode set to <s>
(Shutter-priority AE), the aperture will be set automatically. However, this is not
recommended because the aperture cannot be set manually.
If you use the <Z> or <Y> shooting mode, the result will be the same as
using the <d> (Program AE) mode.

Using E-TTL II and E-TTL Autoflash by Shooting Mode
Modeling FlashN
When the camera’s depth-of-field preview button is pressed, the flash
fires continuously for 1 sec. This feature is called “modeling flash.” This
is effective for checking shadow effects on the subject and the lighting
balance. Modeling flash can be fired during wireless multiple flash
shooting (p.44) as well.
To avoid degrading and damaging the flash unit due to overheating, do
not fire the modeling flash more than 20 times continuously. After firing it
20 times continuously, allow a rest time for at least 10 min.
If the modeling flash is fired more than 20 times continuously, the safety
function may activate and restrict flash firing. If this happens, allow a rest
time for at least 10 min.
During Live View shooting, firing modeling flash (by operating the camera)
is not possible.
Modeling flash (by operating the camera) is disabled when using the flash
unit with EOS M2, EOS M, EOS Elan II/Elan II E/50/50E, EOS REBEL K2/
3000V, EOS REBEL XS N/REBEL G II/3000N/66, EOS REBEL 2000/300,
EOS REBEL G/500N, EOS IX, or EOS IX Lite/IX 7. Set C.Fn-02 to 1 or 2
(p.61), and fire modeling flash using the test flash button.

P
O
Modeling flash can be fired using the test flash button (C.Fn-02/p.61).
Color Temperature Information Transmission
This function optimizes the white balance during flash shooting by
transmitting the color temperature information to the EOS DIGITAL
camera when the flash fires. When you set the camera’s white balance
to <A> or <Q>, the function is enabled automatically.
See the specifications in your camera’s instruction manual to find out if
it is compatible with this function.

compensation amount to “±0”.
Generally, set an increased exposure compensation for bright subjects,
and set a decreased exposure compensation for dark subjects.
If the camera’s exposure compensation is set to 1/2-stop increments, flash
exposure compensation will be up to ±3 stops in 1/2-stop increments.
When the flash exposure compensation is set on both the flash and the
camera, priority is given to the flash setting.

For the accessories required for wireless multiple flash
shooting, see the system map on page 68.
When the camera’s shooting mode is set to a fully automatic
mode or an Image Zone mode, the operations in this chapter are
not available. Set the camera’s shooting mode to d/s/f/a/
F (Creative Zone mode).
The MR-14EX II attached to the camera is called “master”, and
the Speedlite (external flash unit) controlled wirelessly is called
“slave”.
43
: Wireless Multiple Flash Shooting
Using an EX-series Speedlite equipped with optical transmission
wireless slave function, you can easily perform wirelessly-controlled
photography lit with multiple flashes.
The system is designed so that the settings of the MR-14EX II (master)
attached to the camera are automatically applied to the slave flash unit.
Therefore, you do not need to operate the slave unit while shooting. You
can then perform wireless multiple flash shooting, using E-TTL II/E-TTL
autoflash by simply setting the master unit to <a>.

You can perform multiple flash shooting, using flash tubes A and B
of the master unit and a slave unit set to firing group C (slave C).
Slave C is automatically controlled to obtain a standard exposure by

Flash Firing Restriction due to Temperature Increase
When continuous flash or modeling flash is repeatedly fired in short
intervals, the temperature of the MR-14EX II may increase. Repeated
firings of the flash activates the flash firing restriction automatically to
avoid degrading and damaging the flash unit due to overheating. While
flash firing is restricted, the warning is displayed to indicate the increase
in temperature, and the firing interval is automatically set to approx.
from 8 up to 15 sec.

Troubleshooting Guide
If a problem occurs with the flash, first refer to this Troubleshooting
Guide. If this Troubleshooting Guide does not resolve the problem,
contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
Normal Shooting
The power does not turn on.
Make sure that the batteries are installed in the correct orientation (p.14).
Make sure that the battery compartment cover is closed (p.14).
Replace the batteries with new ones.
Insert batteries into the flash unit, even when using an external power
source (p.68).
Y
P
O
The MR-14EX II does not fire.
Insert the mounting foot into the camera’s hot shoe all the way, slide the
lock lever to the right, and secure the control unit to the camera (p.15).
If the <G> indication remains displayed for 30 sec. or longer,
replace the batteries (p.14).
If the electrical contacts of the control unit or camera are dirty, wipe the
contacts (p.9) using a dry cloth.
C
The power turns off by itself.
The MR-14EX II’s auto power off has activated. Press the shutter button
halfway, or press the test flash button (p.18).
Pictures are underexposed or overexposed.
If there is a highly reflective object in the picture, use FE lock (p.29).
If the main subject looks very dark or very bright, set flash exposure
compensation (p.27).
With high-speed sync, the faster the shutter speed, the lower the guide
number will be. Move closer to the subject (p.30).
Do not fire slave C directly pointing toward the main subject (p.44).
71
Troubleshooting Guide
The picture is very blurred.
When the shooting mode is set to the aperture-priority AE (f) mode
and the scene is dark, slow sync is enabled automatically (the shutter
speed becomes slower). Use a tripod, or set the shooting mode to the
program AE (d) or fully automatic mode (p.21). Note that you can also
set the sync speed in [Flash sync. speed in Av mode] (p.40).
Flash ratio, flash exposure compensation, or FEB cannot be set.
Set the shooting mode to d/s/f/a/F (Creative Zone mode) (p.13).
