New Canon Accessories
Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E10
For wireless Speedlite setups requiring one or more off-camera flashes, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E10 delivers a transmitter compatible with EOS cameras that include the multi-function shoe. Since this transmitter maintains a digital connection to the camera through the shoe, it does not require batteries, making the design approximately 30% smaller and approximately 50% lighter (than the ST-E3-RT II). Controlling and changing the 5 independent groups across 15 Speedlites is as easy as pressing the menu button located on the transmitter and adjusting the settings from the vari-angle touchscreen on the back of the camera, or with the flash setting screen when using the Canon Camera Connect app on your smartphone. With full flash control at your fingertips, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E10 is an indispensable tool for advanced, professional flash photography.
Canon Stereo Microphone DM-E1D
The Stereo Microphone DM-E1D is a compact microphone accessory for compatible EOS cameras that include the multi-function shoe. The Stereo Microphone DM-E1D easily mounts to the multifunction hotshoe creating a digital connection to the camera. This means that no internal battery or cable connecting the mic to the camera’s mic port are required, helping you utilize the mic longer and also no impediment in using the vari-angle screen to its full range. It features a number of directional controls to suit the environment and your shooting needs. Shotgun mode keeps audio focused on a subject directly in front of the camera, such as when interviewing someone for a documentary. Stereo (90°/120°) mode captures audio over a wide area for more ambient sound, ideal for nature scenes or entire orchestras. Adjusting the mic controls is as simple as pressing the menu button on the back of the microphone and using the touchscreen LCD on the back of the EOS camera to change settings. Whether you’re looking to capture an interview, record a concert or simply capture the sights and sounds of nature, the Stereo Microphone DM-E1D pairs wonderfully with a compatible EOS digital camera to help you achieve impressive audio.
Canon Multi-Function Shoe Adapter AD-E1
For a seamless transition from your current hot shoe accessories to the multi-function shoe, the Multi-Function Shoe Adapter AD-E1 is the answer. The Multi-Function Shoe Adapter AD-E1 provides a reliable connection for dust and drip proof Speedlite accessories that you may already own such as the Speedlite EL-1, Speedlite 600EX II-RT, Speedlite 600EX-RT, Speedlite 580EX II, ST-E3-RT or OC-E3 flash cord. The shoe adapter will also hold current accessories such as shotgun mics and on-camera LED panels
securely to the camera body with dual locking pins on the multi-function shoe side.
