For when you only get one chance

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 sec1 recycle times mean bursts of up to 170 full-power flashes2, 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 indicator4 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 60m3 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 power5.
