Fast, precise and dependable, the Speedlite EL-1 delivers the performance pros need when the pressure is on, with a 0.9 sec recycle time to full power. Perfect for red-carpet events and weddings, as well as photojournalists looking for speed and reliability. The EL-1’s next-level performance is underpinned by an advanced Li-ion battery and internal active cooling for up to 170 full-power flashes in a continuous burst². A guide number³ of 60 m lights up distant subjects and large groups and a 24-200mm zoom head matches the light coverage to the lens you’re using. A 14mm wide-angle diffuser is also included. The EL-1 is water- and dust-resistant and a charge indicator lets you know when it’s time to change battery. The EL-1 can also be fired off-camera with optical or radio-frequency triggers.
