Canon Flash Speedlite EL-100

The simple way to add light to your photography, with a bounce/swivel flash head for versatile and creative lighting for natural results indoors.

Making great-looking flash photography easier than ever

Create a natural look and feel by bouncing flash off walls and ceilings, or by remote-triggering the Speedlite EL-100 off-camera. An easy Auto mode takes care of the technicalities, so you can get started with flash for better pictures of events, friends and family.

Flash photography made easy

Easily add light to indoor and outdoor shots with the Speedlite EL-100 – providing more power than a built-in flash and a simple mode dial to make it easy to set up and use. The horizontal and vertical bounce capability gives brighter, yet flattering results indoors and lets you light creatively.

Getting Creative

When you’re ready to get adventurous with your lighting, the Speedlite EL-100 has some great features to try out. Like stroboscopic flash for freezing a subject in rapid bursts and 2nd curtain sync mode for accentuating the sensation of speed – both superb for capturing moving subjects.

Compact and Powerful

Powered by AA batteries and weighing just 190g the Speedlite EL-100 is compact and lightweight enough to take to family occasions and events and get great results. Offering a guide number of 26 and a manual zoom head it can be adjusted for optimal lighting spread.

Go wireless for Creative Lighting

For more 3-dimensional lighting effects use Speedlite EL-100 as an optical wireless sender to trigger remote flashes from different locations or use it off camera as an optical receiver controlled from compatible EOS camera bodies.
