¹ On-camera support requires a camera with Canon’s Multi-Function shoe and supported firmware - not all functions may be fully supported with all cameras. Not compatible with EOS R5 C and camcorders with the Multi-Function shoe.

² Minimum flash output is 1/128 for high-speed sync.

³ With compatible cameras.

⁴ Without any obstructions between sender and receiver, and without external radio interference. Arrangement of units and other external factors may affect the range/performance.

⁵ The battery charger for the LP-EL battery pack is not included in the box and would need to be purchased separately.

⁶ Using a fully charged LP-EL battery under Canon testing conditions. Continuous flash count at full output until flash firing restriction Level 1.

* Compatible with the latest Canon mirrorless cameras with a Multi-Function shoe for mounting directly on camera - a camera firmware update may be required. Please note, despite having a Multi-Function shoe, the EOS R5 C is not compatible. The Speedlite EL-5 cannot be mounted to a camera with a standard 5-pin hot-shoe, but can be controlled from Speedlite EX-series compatible EOS cameras wirelessly instead by using a compatible wireless Speedlite transmitter (e.g. the ST-E3-RT (Ver.2)) or a compatible RT Speedlite with Radio Transmitter capability (e.g. EL-1, 600EX RT-II, 430EX RT-III).
