The Canon Speedlite EL-5 Flash is a slightly more portable (and fanless) version of Canon's flagship EL-1 flash. It maintains the convenient Lithium-Ion battery, exposure range, and modeling lamp of the EL-1. The main key difference with this flash is that it is equipped with the newer multi-function hot shoe, which can only be paired with cameras that have multi-function shoes, such the Canon EOS R6 Mark II, EOS R8, and EOS R3. Here are some of the other top features:

  • Without having to reserve power for a fan, the EL-5 is longer lasting than the flagship EL-1 with 350-2,450 pops per charge. Plus, even without the fan it can still carry a continuous flash count of around 95 pops at full output.
  • Fast recycling times compared to EX flash models, with 0.1-1.2 seconds between firings.
  • Ultra wide exposure range of 1/1 to 1/1024 and a coverage range of 24-200mm to accommodate extremely popular lens focal lengths, such as the 24-105mm and the 70-200mm.
  • Equipped with radio transmission capabilities as a sender/receiver. Does not has a PC sync port.
  • Weather resistant build that matches the sealing performance of the Canon EOS R5.

Powerful and packed with modern features, this is a great flash for those using Canon EOS R mirrorless systems with multi-function hot shoes.
