I am at a loss for finding any online guides on using the MT-24EX with its settings aside from the users manual :confused:

Does anyone know of a site that has tutorials or write ups aside from reviews?

Thanks Mike... I had read that thread a while back... its actually that I am looking for more specific information geared towards macro/ratios/powers... not a lot of people see to use this flash because of the price...

Well actually its already at my house... =) I am just waiting on a diffuser kit which should be there today or tomorrow... its just hard to practice on something when I dont have any practical subjects around... I dont want to go cold into the Magic Wings shoot...

Here is another link to a lot of links on Macro... I've found that a LOT of macro tutorials talk at length about the MT24, it being the mercedes of macro flashes.
