How many lumens at 1 meter? 3 meters? Can I fit a mag sphere over the top of the flash?
Asked by: James
At the present time we do not have the Canon Speedlite EL-10 in stock as this is a New Release from Canon. We are expecting delivery in late June of this year. We are unable to say for certain at this time if the MagMod Magsphere is compatible but it looks very likely that it is compatible. Photometrics for this light are available. This is measured by Guide number not Lumens. Stated Guide number is 131.2' / 40 m at ISO 100 (200 mm Position).

Does it come with bounce adapter and color filter? If not, is it compatible with those of 430EX-RTIII?
Asked by: Heidi
The Canon Speedlite EL-10 has the RT system built in like the 430EX-RTIII. It does not come with color gels but has a built in reflector that slides out.
