Canon Patent For High Power Speedlite Flash With Air Cooling

Canon Patent

After the Canon patent application for a lens with built in vacuum cleaner, here is another interesting patent application filed by Canon.

Canon patent application 2019-185021 (Japan) discusses a high power flash unit with a built-in air cooling system. Air is sucked into the flash unit, passes through or around the flash head (the part that gets hottest) and is then put out. Effective cooling system.

An object of the present invention is to provide a lighting device capable of protecting a member related to light emission from heat associated with light emission.  A light source, a first optical member that transmits light emitted from the light source, and a light source that transmits light emitted from the light source are disposed between the light source and the first optical member. The second optical member and the air sucked from the first space, which is the inner space including the light source, on the light source side of the second optical member, and the first optical member and the second optical member. An air blowing mechanism that sends the air to a second space that is a space between the optical members.

More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:

Canon Speedlite EL-100 images leaked (and release dates for EF-M 32mm, EF 400mm & EF 600mm)

Canon Speedlite EL-100

Nokishita posted two pictures of the upcoming Canon Speedlite EL-100.

Moreover, according to Nokishita, the Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens for the Canon EOS M system will be released on September 21, 2018, the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM and Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III lenses in late December 2018, and the Canon Speedlite EL-100 in late October 2018.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Canon EOS R announcement.

Canon set to announce a new flash, the Canon Speedlite EL-100

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Nokishita reports that Canon will announce a new flash, the Canon Speedlite EL-100.

Size of the Canon Speedlite EL-100 64.6 x 91.7 x 71 mm, and the weight is 190g. This is a very small and light SpeedLite. Maybe for Canon’s new EOS R system? Size and weight make the Speedlite EL-100 similar to the Speedlite 270EX II. The name is bit weird for a Canon Speedlite.

September 5th, 2018 is the day – save the date. Canon will announce a lot of new gear, most notably their first full frame mirrorless system, the Canon EOS R, which already has leaked with all the bells and whistles. More information about the upcoming Canon gear can be seen here and here and here.
