For anyone wanting to explore fun, creative opportunities with flash photography, the Speedlite EL-100 is a great option to add a compact and versatile flash to your photographic set-up. From brightening darkened rooms to filling in and preventing an under-exposed or noisy image, the Speedlite EL-100 offers the performance and features to capture beautiful photos in a variety of scenarios. With the ability to pivot and swivel, you can bounce light off ceilings or walls, depending on the situation. If that situation requires a wide coverage area, the Speedlite EL-100 has a spread similar to the field of view of a 24mm lens. Add the light you need and find new shooting possibilities with the highly portable Speedlite EL-100.
Compact, Versatile and Easy-to-Use Speedlite
Compact and versatile, the Speedlite EL-100 can slide easily into a camera bag and add light to a dark or dim environment. Weighing just approx. 6.7 oz./190g without batteries, it won't weigh down your camera. Thanks to the Speedlite EL-100's ability to rotate and pivot, it's easy to use to get a direct or indirect burst of light where you want it, without compromising your camera's position.
Horizontal and Upward Bounce Rotation Capability
To help ensure you're able to get the light you want, wherever you need it, the Speedlite EL-100 can pivot vertically and rotate horizontally. To get some indirect light by bouncing the flash off the ceiling, you can twist the flash head upwards to a maximum of 90° (i.e. straight up). To get bounce from a nearby wall, rotate the head up to 150° to the left or 180° to the right, letting you get a bounce even if the wall is behind you. Of course, you can also angle the Speedlite EL-100 straight ahead to bathe your subject in direct light.
Maximum Guide Number of Approx. 85 ft./26m at ISO 100
Boasting power for numerous shooting situations in a compact and lightweight package, the Speedlite EL-100 has a guide number of approx. 85 ft./26m at ISO 100. Even when shooting with telephoto lenses, or if the subject moves away from the camera, the Speedlite EL-100 can provide an ample burst of light for bright and evenly illuminated compositions.
24mm Wide-angle Coverage
The Speedlite EL-100 can cover a similar field of view as a 24mm wide-angle lens, helping to provide well-lit interiors and minimize the exposure drop-off at the edges of an image. For a tighter spread with a brighter result, this is adjustable to a narrower 50mm. This lets you finetune the strength of the flash and the coverage to suit your subject and situation.
Optical Wireless Flash Function (Sender and Receiver)
For comprehensive lighting setups on the go, the Speedlite EL-100 offers a number of options for wireless flash operation. When used with a compatible flash, or flash driver mounted on the camera, the Speedlite EL-100 can serve as either a sender or a receiver unit in an optical setup, at distances of up to 36.1 ft./11m when indoors and 26.2 ft./8m when outdoors. Additionally, remote shutter release can be achieved when the Speedlite EL-100 is used as a receiver unit with a compatible EOS digital SLR camera.
