Canon Speedlite EL-1 Flash

The Canon Speedlite EL-1 is a powerful Lithium-Ion powered flash, and Canon's first L-Series speedlight. Powering the flash is the LP-EL rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack; providing a powerful guide number of 60m at ISO100, and Canon's fastest (at time of writing) recycling time of 0.9 seconds at full power.

Another standout feature of the EL-1 is the ability to adjust flash output between full (1/1) and 1/8192. Other than decreasing exposure, stopping down on flash output also decreases flash duration, enabling the flash to shoot 'bullet-time' and other high speed flash photography subjects.

The EL-1 is not just powerful but also very durable; an active cooling system prevents the flash from overheating, and a weather-resistant construction provides extra protection in less than ideal conditions.

Other features of the Speedlite EL-1 includes: a zoom of 24-200mm, 2.4 GHz wireless radio or optical transmission, Infra-red AF assist beam, up to 2345 flashes from a single charge, and a built-in LED modelling light with colour temperature and brightness controls.

Fast 0.1-0.9 sec recycling time

Sports and action photographers will love the fast 0.1-0.9 sec recycling time of the Canon EL-1 flash; allowing confident high speed, high bust shooting.


Up to 2345 flashes from a single charge

A power-dense Canon LP-EL battery powers the flash to provide not only fast shooting speeds and reliability, but also 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 battery.


Built to endure: Dust and water resistance & active cooling

The EL-1 is backed up by the same degree of dust and water resistance as Canon's L-Series lenses, and an active cooling system prevents overheating, enabling users to shoot for longer and in confidently in bad conditions.


Shoot wirelessly with the radio or optical trigger

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.


Built-in bi-colour LED modelling ligh

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.
