Meike MK-MT24 wireless macro flash system review

Meike MK-MT24 wireless macro flash system review



Meike MK-MT24 wireless macro flash system (Adorama | Amazon) review by Steve Gong (website | Facebook | Instagram - see also his Meike 50mm f/1.7 lens for Nikon Z-mount review):

The Meike MT-MT24 is one of the most interesting lighting products I’ve ever used. The concept of this product is similar to some macro flash systems that have been on the market for years - especially the Nikon R1C1 - but while I knew of their existence, I’ve never once considered them due to their exorbitantly high price (the R1C1 is over $700). This Meike MT-MT24 system, while at first glance seems pricey, coming in at $300, I’ve come to realize that it’s actually quite a good price for something specialized that works so well. It opens up a lot of possibilities in macro photography, and also simplifies the process tremendously.

New Tokina ATX-i 11-16mm f/2.8 CF lens for Nikon F-mount to be announced this week


Tokina is rumored to announce a new ATX-i 11-16mm f/2.8 CF ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for APS-C cameras (DX) this week (replacement for the current 11-16mm f/2.8 model). Shipping is expected to start on November 8. The lens will be available for both Nikon and Canon mounts. The suggested retail price is 56,000 yen + tax (around $500). The design of the lens is similar to the Tokina Opera series full-frame lenses.

New Rumiere Noct-Master APO 75mm f/0.95 mirrorless full-frame manual focus lens for Nikon Z-mount (Noct?)

New Rumiere Noct-Master APO 75mm f/0.95 mirrorless full-frame manual focus lens for Nikon Z-mount (Noct?)


Last year Nisi showed their new 75mm f/0.95 mirrorless full-frame manual focus lens for Sony E, Canon R, Nikon Z and L-mounts.


Based on the pictures, it seems that the company has decided to market the lens under the name Rumiere Noct-Master APO 75mm f/0.95. This could be a problem since Nikon already registered the “NOCT” trademark last year and they just announced a new Noct lens.

A reader contacted NiSi’s marketing address shown on their corporate website and got this strange answer:

Nikon MB-N10 battery pack additional coverage

Nikon MB-N10 battery pack additional coverage

Nikon MB-N10 battery pack additional information from Nikon USA:

The MB-N10 is a Multi Battery Power Pack for the Z 7 and Z 6 full frame mirrorless cameras (cameras sold separately). It is designed to add additional shooting time versus just using the battery in the camera alone. The MB-N10 may increase the length of shooting time up to 1.8x* (*CIPA standard) more than using just the camera’s battery. The MB-N10 is designed with the same weather sealing and modern design of the Z cameras and affords photographers a well-balanced feel when a long telephoto lens is on the camera.

The MB-N10 can accept two EN-EL15b or EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries, each housed in its own battery compartment. For convenience, the batteries are hot-swappable, which means that you can replace one while the other continues powering the camera. This is beneficial for video, interval and time-lapse shooting. With two batteries, power is first drawn from the battery in chamber A until it is depleted, and then the unit draws power from the battery in chamber B.

Nikon interview with AP: “Mirrorless isn’t going to be for everybody”, “we’re focusing closely on mid to high-end product development”

Nikon interview with AP: “Mirrorless isn’t going to be for everybody”, “we’re focusing closely on mid to high-end product development”


AP published their interview with Nikon. Her is a quick recap:

If we include IBIS in the Z50 we’d have to sacrifice size and form factor.Our strategy is to run both systems (DSLR & Mirrorless) alongside each other.Nikon is focusing closely on mid to high-end Z product development.Mirrorless isn’t going to be for everybody. Not everyone likes EVF’s, a lot of people really still like using optical viewfinders. Some people very much like the feel, weight and button sizes on a DSLR. Our strategy is all about giving the best of both worlds, so if users want great DSLRs they can go down that route, or if they want great mirrorless cameras they can go down that route as well. We expect to be investing in DSLR and mirrorless for the future.
