The Canon Speedlite EL-1 Flash is an on-camera E-TTL / E-TTL II-compatible flash characterized by its flexibility to suit a variety of lighting needs. Featuring a xenon flash tube, greater exposure stability is possible along with a powerful guide number of 60m at ISO 100 and versatile exposure control from full 1/1 power down to 1/8192 power. Also distinct, the EL-1 utilizes the LP-EL rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack to promote shorter recycle times of around 0.9 sec, approximately 335 flashes per charge, and it contributes to improved thermal management and the flash's active cooling system.

Capable of handling professional applications, the EL-1 fully supports RT-series flash products for radio-based wireless control and triggering, including wireless second-curtain sync, and the flash has a rugged physical design equivalent to the dust and water-resistance of the EOS-1D-series camera bodies. Its improved user interface incorporates an updated joystick design, display, and control layout and it features a tunable LED modelling lamp to help previsualize the lighting. Additionally, the flash head can fully swivel 180° left and right, bounce upward 120°, and it includes a built-in wide panel.

14 f-stops of flexible power for a wide range of light expressions

The Speedlite EL-1 has 14 f-stops of flexible power enabling a variety of expressions. The 1/8192 microflash provides subtle fill flash, allowing you to achieve amazing macro photography or handheld shooting even in the dark where traditional flashes may be too bright. Alternatively, the Speedlite EL-1's multiple flash achieves powerful light expression when you need it most.

Improved E-TTL | Create subtle nuances of light

Improved E-TTL (Electronic Through The Lens) support automatically sets the flash output to the optimum balance according to the surrounding environment and focal length of your camera. The Speedlite EL-1 also has Flash Exposure (FE) memory that allows you to continue shooting with the flash output stored in E-TTL, even if you switch to manual mode and shoot after E-TTL shooting. Further fine adjustments are also possible in manual mode.

High-speed flash charging | Don't miss a scene

The Speedlite EL-1's high-speed flash charging of 0.1 to 0.9 sec. and 160 times or more continuous flashes, reliably tracks the moment you want to shoot. For example you can shoot scenes with movement, such as a shower of flower petals, without missing a beat.

Two built-in LED modelling lamps

The Speedlite EL-1 is equipped with two built-in LED modelling lamps so you can check lighting prior to shooting or even use the lamps for basic video lighting. The lamps automatically turn off during shutter release.

High-capacity rechargeable lithium-ion battery

The Speedlite EL-1 uses a new high-capacity lithium-ion battery power supply. You can achieve high-speed charging of 1/1 power: approx. 0.9 sec. and an increased number of flashes 1/1 power: approx. 335. In addition, the battery power level can be clearly displayed on the LCD screen so you can time when the battery needs to be changed or recharged.

Take control with intuitive operation

Almost all operations including wireless settings can be operated easily by pushing the joystick of the Speedlite EL-1.
