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. Discover the benefits and capabilities of the EL-1 in this film.

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 3 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 60m4 is backed up by the same degree of dust and water resistance as our 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-colour LED modelling light lets you see where and how the EL-1’s flash output will look, and preview where shadows will fall. Manual flash output can be varied between full and 1/8192 power
