Resetting to the Default Settings
_JllJlfIJlIJ'• •
When the Macro Ring Lite is attached to an EOS camera equipped with a
<CLEAR> button, pressing the <CLEAR> button resets the Macro Ring Lite's
settings (except the Custom Functions) to its default settings
Press the camera's <CLEAR>
button.
• The default settings are as follows:
~ E-TTL autoflash *
Left and right flash tubes firing at the
same output
Normal flash
* With the EOS-1 Nand EOS-1, TTL autoflash
will be set.
20
When the MR-14EX is mounted on a
Type-A camera such as the EOS-1 V,
taking flash pictures with E-TTL
autoflash is just as easy as normal
autoexposure (AE) pictures.
As with evaluative metering, the E-TTL
autoflash system uses a multi-zone
_ metering sensor which enables highly
precise flash exposure control. A
preflash is fired for evaluative flash
metering and the reading is stored in
memory. The result is a flash picture
with excellent balance between the flash
exposure and ambient light.
For Type-A Cameras
Basic Flash
Photography
o
In macro photography, setting the correct exposure greatly depends on the
subject. It would be best to bracket the exposure even for the same subject.

Using Flash with the Camera's Shooting Modes .......
For E-TTL autoflash shots, just set the camera's shooting mode to P
(Program AE), Av (aperture-priority AE), or M (Manual exposure). For
serious closeup flash photography, Av or M is recommended.
* When you press the shutter button completely, a preflash is fired
immediately before the picture is taken. The preflash is used to obtain the
subject's reflected-light reading for calculating the optimum output of the
main flash.
Set the camera's shooting mode to P, and the camera will set the flash
aperture and shutter speed automatically. You can thereby concentrate on
the subject.
Set the camera's shooting mode
to P.

By firing only one of the flash tubes or by setting a flash ratio for flash tubes
A and B, you can create shadows and sculptural lighting effects. You can
set the flash ratio from 1:8 to 1:1 to 8:1 (13 levels) in 1/2-stop increments.
* The ETTL flash mode must be set.
* Since the flash exposure is controlled automatically, you need not bother with any
flash metering calculations.
* If you set the flash mode to M, see page 39.

""1II!JI1IIIIIfJIIII.
By using a Speedlite 550EX as a slave unit, you can set up a wireless flash
system with the MR-14EX.
As with the Speedlite 550EX, the MR-14EX can be set as the master unit
which transmits wireless signals to the slave unit.
Press the MR-14EX's <MODE>

• Face the slave unit's transmission
sensor toward the master unit.
• Indoors, the transmission signals can
bounce off the walls so the slave unit's
positioning can be a little more flexible.
• Do not place any objects between the
master unit and slave unit which may
obstruct the wireless transmission.
Check that the master unit's pilot
lamp is lit and that slave C is
flash-ready.

Setting Up a Wireless Flash System
Press the master unit's pilot lamp
(test firing button) to fire a test
flash.
~
The master unit and slave unit should
fire (at 1/64 output).
• If the slave unit does not fire,
reposition it closer to the master unit
and more toward the front and center
of the master unit. Then fire a test
flash again.

Cil
To determine the correct flash exposure, use a hand-held flash meter or take
test shots.
_ _ With all Type-A cameras, C.Fn-5 can set the same flash output for flash
tubes A and B and slave C. (~p.64)
• While Iil:.1iI!] is not displayed on the master unit, you can just set the flash
output with the master unit.
47
Using the Wireless Flash System
When C.Fn-5-1 is set, you can use additional Speedlites and set their slave
IDs t9 A, B, or C.(~p.64)
By having multiple Speedlites set to the same slave 10, you can create a
slave group to produce a brighter flash. For example, a slave unit whose
slave 10 is A will fire together with flash tube A. Each slave group is treated
as one Speedlite, with the same flash settings applied to all the Speedlites
in the group.
There is no limit as to the number of slave units that can belong to one group.
With the EOS-1 0, 1V, 3, 030, ELAN 7/7E, or 30/33, E-TTL autoflash control
can be applied individually to each of the three A, B, and C slave groups.
With other Type-A EOS cameras, the same E-TTL autoflash control is
applied to all three groups. In the manual flash mode, all Type-A EOS
cameras can apply E-TTL autoflash control individually to each of the three
slave groups.

(AE) pictures. In the Full Auto mode, you
can just press the shutter button to take
flash pictures. Or you can set the shutter
speed or aperture while the flash
exposure is automatic. In this way, you
can take various flash pictures.
With the EOS-1 N, the flash exposure is

With all Type-B cameras, you can also set up a wireless manual flash
system.
* To set up a wireless flash system, follow the same procedure for Type-A cameras
on page 42 to 44.
* W"ireless autoflash is not possible.
Setting the flash output for flash tubes A and 8 and slave C
With IimiM A : B : C displayed on the master unit, set the flash output for flash
tubes A and B. Then set the flash output for slave C. For the setting
procedure, see "Firing Both Flash Tubes at a Different Output" on page 61.
_ _ With all Type-B cameras, C.Fn-5 can set the same flash output for flash
tubes A and B and slave C. (~p.64)
• While IimiM is not displayed on the. master unit, you can just set the flash
output with the master unit.
When C.Fn-5-1 is set, you can use
additional Speedlites and set their slave
IDs to A, B, or C. (~p.65)
By having multiple Speedlites set to the
same slave ID, you can create a slave
group to produce a brighter flash. For
example, a slave unit whose slave ID is
A will fire together with flash tube A.
Each slave group is treated as one
Speedlite, with the same flash settings
applied to all the Speedlites in the group.
There is no limit as to the number of
slave units that can belong to one group.

C.Fn-4: Setting this to "1" will have the flash heads fire the modeling flash fire at the same
output with all EOS cameras. If both flash heads have been set to fire with
autoflash, both flash heads will fire the modeling flash at the same output. In the
manual flash mode, the modeling flash will be fired at the flash ratio set manually.
C.Fn-5: When this is set to "1", slave units whose 10 is A or B will fire as part of the same
slave group as flash tube A or B respectively.
C.Fn-7: When an external power pack is used, the flash unit uses both the internal and
external power sources to recharge the flash. However, the internal power source
may become exhausted sooner than the external power pack, preventing the flash
from firing. By setting this Custom Function to "1," the flash unit will use only the
external power pack to recharge the flash so that the internal power source will last
longer. (The focusing lamp is always powered by the internal power source.)

The MT-24EX's effective flash distance range greatly depends on the
position and angle of the flash heads. For best results, point the flash
heads directly at the subject and use FE lock (~ p.30) and modeling flash
(~ p.29, 55).
When the correct flash exposure is obtained, the flash exposure
confirmation lamp lights (~ p.16).
The MT-24EX has nine Custom Functions from C.Fn-1 to C.Fn-9.C.Fn-1 to
C.Fn-7 are the same as the MR-14EX's (~ p.65), and C.Fn-8 and C.Fn-9
