Learn to light up your photographic results with a Canon Speedlite Flash.

  • Ultra-compact, ultra-lightweight, high-performance flash unit.

  • Vertical bounce capability up to 90 degrees provides a wide range of picture-taking options.

  • Flash coverage can be switched between Normal (28mm full-frame equivalent, max. Guide No. 72 ft./22m at ISO 100) and Tele (50mm full-frame equivalent, max. Guide No. 89 ft./27m at ISO 100).
