Question about Canon MR-14EX TTL Ring Light Flash

2 Answers

Canon 1000D & Canon MR-14EX Ringflash

Would it be worth the expense in investing in the MR-14 for my newly aquired Canon 1000D or would you recommend another flash Unit for this camera - i am new to photography and eager to learn.
Main areas of photography are, communions, confirmations, parties, portraits etc.
I don't know whether to include e-mail address or what?
Anyway here it is. safetysigns@o2.ie

Thanks,
Bill

Holy smokes some of these post are old I mean really old. I'd hope you have solved your problem way before this. My answer to your question here is the flash you have listed is a "Macro" flash and for portraits will produce very unflattering light. Not to mention it will not have the reach of say a "normal' external flash unit and the amount of red eye will be staggering from this flash used for people pictures.

My suggestion is a 430EX for that camera.

Buying an SLR digital camera


Hard to tell, but I'd give a slight advantage to the Canon 1000D over the Nikon D60 (closest competitor) for 2 main reasons. The Canon has liveview which the D60 lacks and the Canon is largely backwards compatible with older Canon and third party lenses - so you can get good quality older lenses which will work perfectly with the 1000D. With Nikon on the other hand you need to either buy lenses with internal autofocus motors or you'll be stuck with only manual focus.

Besides that there's not really much difference, since both cameras produce great images and are very similar in features handling and price etc. To sum it all up - I suggest you go with the Canon.

Hope that helps with your decision.

My Canon Rebel xs 1000D won't operate even when turned on. There is power somewhere because there is a lighted display in the viewfinder and it flashes busy.
