The Canon Speedlite EL-5 is a flash that features many of the same modern features as its predecessor, the Speedlite EL-1 with some key updates. One of these is the modeling lamp, which provides a visual representation of light emission. The other is the high-capacity lithium-ion battery pack.

The Speedlite EL-5 uses a lithium-ion battery pack to produce a guide number of 60 meters/169.9ft @ 200mm. It can recycle its energy in 1.2 seconds, and it can fire up to 350 full-power flashes with just one charge. 

The Speedlite EL-5 features a joystick and a select dial that is designed to make it easier to use. These features allow users to easily adjust the settings on their cameras while shooting. In addition, the new Multi-functional connector at the foot of the flash allows it to communicate with other shoe-equipped cameras.
