Speedlite EL-1 is capable of micro flash of power as low as 1/8192 to express colour nuances along with high-speed flash recycle time as fast as 0.1sec and up to 160 times continuous flash burst. Apart from being dust and drip resistance, Speedlite EL-1 can fire up to 335 times at full power of 1/1 with the new LP-EL battery.
The Speedlite EL-1 is engineered to provide stable flash burst at a low flash output. The new structure design with its improved firing circuitry provides precise flash output making it possible to achieve 1/8192 micro flash.
Each reduction of power on Speedlite, reduces the output of the flash by half; effectively providing 1 f-stop of dynamic range. The Speedlite EL-1 offers up to 14 f-stops of dynamic range, from full power of 1/1 down to 1/8192.
With precise control of up to 14 f-stops of light, you're now able to express your creative visions that was previously not possible. Micro flashes allows accurate lighting that not only complements your images but also ensures a more accurate colour reproduction.
That hint of light makes the biggest impact, be it for portraits or still-lifes.
With the Speedlite EL-1, you're able to wireless control up to 15 other flash units via radio transmission. If the main transmiter and receivers are all Speedlite EL-1, you could even wireless control the flashes to fire micro flashes of 1/8192.
Using compatible Speedlites, you're even able to use the second curtain sync feature.
Controling off-camera flashes extends the possibilities of lighting up your subject that could better suit your artistic objectives.
These off-camera flashes could provide accurate light in areas not possible with a clip-on flash and also can be combined to fire together to provide a stronger flash output like having your own mini sun.
Flash recycle time refers to the time for the flash to recharge sufficient energy to fire again to capture the precise moment.
Speedlite EL-1's new charging circuit and the use of the lithium-ion battery allows faster charge time; achieving full recharge at only 0.9 seconds* for a 1/1 output and 0.1 seconds for a 1/8192 output.
*using CP-E4N allows full recharge at 0.4 seconds
