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.

Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI Specifications Leaked

Speedlite 470EX-AI

Specifications of the upcoming Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI leaked at Digicame-Info (and are machine translated).

  • Auto intelligent (AI) bounce mode of “Full Auto” and “Semi Auto”.With an electric head rotation device, the 470 EX – AI automatically determines the optimal bounce position eliminating unnecessary shadows.
  • The guide number is 47 (105 mm). It is driven by 4 AA batteries.
  • It covers the field angle of 24 – 105 mm. Wide panel (14 mm adapter) allows light to spread wide. Clip-on bounce adapter that makes light more soft.
  • Equipped with a dot matrix display that can display more detailed information.
  • The setting can be quickly changed with the shortcut button and the controller wheel.
  • EOS 8D Mark II, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 6D Mark II, EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 80D, EOS 77D, EOS 800D, EOS 760D, EOS 750D, EOS 200D, EOS M50.
  • Size 74.6 x 130.4 x 105.1 mm. Weight 385 g (excluding batteries).

So, what is about the “AI bounce” feature of the Speedlite 470EX-AI. If I got the machine translation right, the flash automatically sets the appropriate bounce angle.

And, btw, have you seen the EOS 8D Mark II in the list above? Most likely a translation error. Or is an EOS 80D Mark II coming? Unlikely :) The EOS 5D Mark II is listed two times, so I guess machine translation mistake.
