Meike MK580 Flash for Canon
It’s an EOS-dedicated, high-output flash unit automatically compatible with E-TTL II, E-TTL and TTL autoflash. It can serve as an on-camera flash as well a master unit or a salve unit in a wireless multiple-speedilite system.
The basic operation is as easy as with normal AE shooting.
When the MK580 is attached to an EOS camera, almost all automatic exposure control for flash photography is handled by the camera. It is almost the same as using the camera’s built-in flash if it has one. You can think of MK580 as a built-in high-output flash, but attached externally.
It becomes automatically compatible with the camera's flash metering mode (E-TTL II, E-TTL and TTL).
In accordance with the camera's flash control system, the speedlite controls the flash automatically in the respective flash metering mode.
1.E-TTL II autoflash (evaluative flash metering with perflash reading/lens distance information)
2.E-TTL autoflash (evaluative flash metering with preflash reading)
3.TTL autoflash (off-the-film metering for real-time flash metering)
Fully Automatic Flash Shooting
