The Canon Speedlite EL-100 is an on-camera flash that is simple and compact, perfect to carry with you in your kit. The sleek strobe is designed to be more powerful than your camera's standard, built-in flash, all while providing you with more flexibility and control. This flash has several features including a guide number of 85.3' at ISO 100 and 50mm, a 90° tilting range, a 330° rotating range, and a spread similar to that of a 24mm. With these features, you can use this on-camera flash in a variety of both indoor and outdoor settings. 

The mode dial on the rear allows for easy group selection or it can also be set to AUTO to allow your camera to determine when flash is necessary. Also, for off-camera use, an optical receiver allows for triggering from up to 36' away. For creative applications, a stroboscopic mode can be used for unique effects during long exposures or second-curtain sync helps to emphasize moving subjects.
