Designed for EOS cameras equipped with a multi-function shoe, the Canon EL-5 is an external Speedlite compatible with E-TTL II / E-TTL autoflash. In normal flash photography, it can be used as an on-camera flash attached to a multi-function shoe, and radio transmission wireless flash photography, it can be used as a sender or receiver. Dust and water resistance is equivalent to the EOS R5.

Precaution on continuous flash firing
Flash units fire repeatedly in continuous shooting with flash or when you shoot with features such as stroboscopic or modeling flash. Some people may experience seizures or similar symptoms from visual overstimulation caused by continuous flash firing (including light reflected off brightly colored walls or other surfaces). If you or others experience these symptoms, stop firing the flash units immediately.
