Professional lighting with performance to match

Capture unmissable moments with a powerful GN60-rated flash with fast recycle times and long continuous busts, while a power level indicator gives reassurance on the LP-EL Li-ion battery charge.

Multi-Function Foot for advanced operation

Control the EL-5 direct from your camera thanks to Canon’s Multi-Function Foot, a new interface offering reliable connection with improved communication and features.

Feature packed for creative photography

Use FE Memory for quicker setups and Manual mode for fine control down to 1/1024th power. Custom Flash Modes allow settings to be stored and linked to a compatible camera’s own Custom settings.

Multi-flash lighting for studio-quality shooting

Control up to 15 Speedlites wirelessly with the built-in radio transmitter at up to 30m away and model the lighting thanks to a Dual White LED with brightness adjustment.

Intuitive interface and advanced handling

Control settings using the Speedlite’s joystick or from the camera’s LCD via the Speedlite’s (Flash) Direct Menu button, or remotely via the Camera Connect App. The EL-5 can tilt upwards to 120° or sideways for bounce lighting.

Remote, reliable operation every time

Shoot with flash in all weather conditions thanks to weather-resistant seals and an improved internal airflow design that helps to keep the flash head cool.


The Speedlite EL-5 features the Multi-Function Shoe and requires a compatible camera for full-feature support. This includes:
