Along with the new-at-the-time-of-this-writing
Canon EOS-1D Mark III and
Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash,
Canon has introduced the Canon Off-Camera Shoe Cord OC-E3.
As you would expect with any updated product, the Canon Off-Camera Shoe Cord OC-E3 is improved on its predecessor, the
Canon Off Shoe Cord 2.
How much of an improvement is always the next question as it also carries the typical higher price.
My opinion is that it is a very nice improvement – read on for the reasons why.
Sometimes you do not want your flash to produce near-daylight white balanced light.
And when the flash’s light color is not right, the ExpoImaging Rogue Flash Gels Universal Lighting Filter Kit is the right solution.
Adding gel filters to your flash can significantly improve the quality of your images.
The Rogue Gels Kit, compatible with all standard medium and large-sized shoe mount flashes, is beautifully simplistic and highly effective.
Macro photography is great fun and amazing macro photos are not difficult to capture, but adequately lighting a very close subject and preventing camera and/or subject motion blur are two of macro photography’s biggest challenges.
By addressing both of these issues, the Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II Flash lands right at the top of the most valuable macro photography accessories list.
The MR-14EX II is a well-built and well-designed ring lite flash that is very easy to use and an extremely valuable asset in macro photography.
