EOS-1D X Mark III
- Jan 29, 2011
By the way, the MR-14EX II came out shortly after the 600 RT and it also didn't include RT, which I also found a very sad omission, because the ringlite would make an excellent RT master (it is only an optical master). At least the current twinlite MT-26-EX-RT has RT built into it, so that makes it possible to use 600-RT as RT-slaves in macro photography, which is great.
I really find it very weird not to put the RT function into every flash. Even a 90EX speedlite would be an excellent RT-master (it is only an optical master).
I suppose the reasoning was that at the distances the MR-14EXII is designed to work optical is well up to the task, same really with the 90EX which I got for free when I got an original M kit from B&H.
