Features

Increased stability and reliability for the ultimate creativity

MR-14EX II features a highly durable metal mounting foot same as Speedlite 600EX-RT, for secured flash installation. With an improved quick locking mechanism, hot shoe and contact reliability is further enhanced - a dust-wipe mechanism can remove dust and dirt stuck to the hot shoe contact, while a variable contact pressure design can improve transmission reliability by varying the pressure at the contacts, enabling the camera and flash contacts to remain firmly in touch while preventing scratches on the hot shoe, making it easier to attach and remove. The flash will also implement 2-line transmission for important signals. With the backup contacts, transmission accuracy is greatly improved. Also, Lens Cap E-67 II is included for attaching at the front of flash to prevent dust and dirt build-up, and protects against scratches and bumps when the expensive lens isn't in use at work.
