Canon Speedlite EL-1

Fast, precise and completely dependable, the Canon Speedlite EL-1 delivers the kind of performance that professional photographers demand when the pressure is on. Advanced technologies let you get more creative than ever when using flash. For those unrepeatable moments, when you can’t ask your subject to simply ‘do it one more time’, there is the EL-1. Absolute reliability and blistering performance, plus advanced wireless communication and a high-performance rechargeable battery, make this the ultimate Speedlite.

Prepared for Every Moment

Be ready for anything. Super-fast 0.1-0.9 sec recycle times mean bursts of up to 170 full-power flashes, plus high-speed bursts at lower power levels are also possible.

Power When You Need It Most

A high-performance LP-EL battery powers the EL-1’s blisteringly fast shooting speeds and shot-to-shot reliability. Expect up to 2345 flashes from a single charge. An accurate battery level indicator lets you know when it’s time to recharge or replace your power source.

Shoot with Confidence

When the pressure’s on, you can count on the EL-1 to deliver. It’s guide number of 60m is backed up by the same degree of dust and water resistance as Canon’s L-Series lenses. An active cooling system prevents overheating, so you can shoot for longer.

Flexibility and Control

Light your subject from anywhere in the scene, controlling the EL-1 wirelessly with a radio or optical trigger. Use multiple Speedlites together (as individual units or groups) for highly creative lighting.

Be More Creative with Your Lighting

A built-in bi-color LED modelling light lets you see where and how the EL-1’s flash output will look, and preview where shadows will fall. The EL-1 features a new Xenon flash tube, so manual flash output can be varied between full and 1/8192 power.

On And Off Camera Use

With the EL-1 on camera, it has a 120 degree tilt movement so that you can direct the flash behind you to bounce light off a wall or another surface for a softer lighting effect. It can also be used off camera for a variety of setups, using up to 15 separate Speedlite's.
