Equipped with many improved basic performances such as faster flash recycling time, dust- & drip-resistance, the Speedlite EL-5 has the capability of firing approx. 350 times with the new LP-EL battery. It is also ideal for wireless multi-flash setups.
Speedlite EL-5 is compatible with the new Multi-Function Shoe design found in our newer camera models released from EOS R3 onwards. It can be easily mounted on newer cameras without the need for an adapter.
It supports high-speed data communication between the speedlite and camera. Compared to the existing 5-pin speedlites, the 15-pin gold-plated terminals do not oxidize easily, reduce contact resistance, and provide a more stable connection.
Speedlite EL-5 is fanless but has a continuous flash count of approx. 95 times or more at full output. This enables you to meet the most demanding situations where continuous shooting with flash is required even for extended durations.
*35mm illumination coverage angle. Number of consecutive full flashes up to level 2 flash intensity, when using a new, fully charged LP-E1 battery. Based on Canon’s testing standards. using manual flash.
With the ability to vary the output power of the flash between 1/1 and 1/1024, you will be able to control and reduce the intensity of the flash to match the atmosphere of the scene.
The wide range of output levels allows more flexibility for creativity in flash photography in different shooting situations.
With higher shutter speeds, large apertures can be used even during an outdoor shoot, making it possible to achieve beautiful background blur effects.
Equipped with wireless radio transmission, the Speedlite EL-5 is designed for a multi-flash shooting environment. As a sender unit, it can control up to 15 receiver units in up to 5 groups. When paired with the EOS R6 Mark II, the Quick flash group control feature allows adjusting of each flash group settings directly from the camera LCD.
Settings of each speedlite unit can be changed wirelessly via the app in a multi-flash setup as well, offering complete control and convenience at the same time.
Supported operations and settings: Flash intensity, Sync setting, Flash compensation, FEB, Multi-flash control
The Speedlite EL-5 uses a high-capacity battery LP-EL for reliable, extended sessions of flash photography. It has no cooling fan, so power is used exclusively to fire the approx. up to *350 flashes that the unit can emit, compared to Speedlite EL-1 (approx. 335 times).
*Brand new and fully charged LP-EL battery.
This wireless flash features an AF-assist beam with automatic light intensity adjustment lets you to control the on/off setting of the receiver unit’s modeling lamp from the sender unit. Light intensity is also suppressed so that people in the shot do not perceive it as being too bright.
