Speciality photographic equipment like the Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-26EX-RT Speedlite provides macro photographers with the versatility of creating perfectly lit, high-quality photographs.
A powerful and adaptable macro twin flash for superbly lit close-up photographs
Capture macro and close-up images full of detail thanks to a powerful, precise and highly flexible Canon Twin Light Macro Flash that recycles quickly and silently for the creative lighting of small subjects where maximum control over light power and direction is essential.
Twin flash with fast recycling
Both flashes can be individually positioned on the ring and altered to suit the subject. Each is removable with sockets for mounting to external supports such as tripods or lighting stands.
High-brightness white LEDs
With adjustable brightness to allow easier focusing and modelling before the flash is fired, the focusing lamps can be turned on by a double depression of the camera shutter button.
Optical and Radio Wireless control
Use the flash as the sender unit and operate other Speedlites remotely using either optical or radio wireless control.
Creative lighting and custom functions
Control shadow harshness with the special flash diffuser and assign custom preferences to control various aspects of the flash performance such as focusing lamp brightness or flash intensity.
Intuitive control and optimised usability
Using the same controls as other recent Speedlite units gives this flash a high usability factor. A sturdy metal mounting foot, with a one-touch lockable lever, secures the unit to the camera safely.

Offering the flexibility of radio flash capabilities with a design for close-up shooting, the Canon MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite uses a pair of flashes to evenly illuminate subjects when working with a macro lens. When both flash heads are simultaneously fired, a guide number of 26m at ISO 100 is possible, and extensive manual adjustment allows you to dial in settings down to 1/512 power. Both flash heads are detachable and, using the 2.4 GHz wireless triggering system, the heads can be easily positioned around the subject for more controlled and dynamic lighting configurations, including the ability to easily integrate other flashes into the setup.
When attached to the lens, the heads can be rotated up to 60° horizontally and 45° vertically and each includes a removable diffuser for further adjustment over light quality. Additionally, an illuminated dot-matrix LCD screen lets you make adjustments to the flash in both bright- and low-light situations, its updated white LED focus assist lamps aids in achieving accurate focus on close-up subjects, and the recycling time with 4 AA batteries* is from 0.1-5.5 seconds.
