| p.1 #1 · Flash suggestion for macro travel? |
I would very much appreciate the opinions of some experienced macro shooters. I have little macro experience, but will be in Madagascar for three weeks soon, and would like to refine my flash set-up to take advantage of the opportunities I missed on my last trip there. I'll be traveling with 5 lenses....covering 14mm to 560mm, including a 100mm IS macro. I'll also have a RT600EX flash and the transmitter for use on a 1DX and 5DIII.
My question is: would you experienced folks recommend taking a dedicated macro flash...like the MT-24EX, or just make do with the 600EX and some diffuser/bracket options. I'm willing to bear the weight of another flash, but only if it offers a distinct advantage, otherwise I might as well stick with the 600EX. Cost is not an really a consideration, but weight, portability and fast set-up time does come into play..... hand held shots will be the norm.
Thanks for your time and words of advise.
