Product Details

Canon Speedlite 320EX Flash Lineup, Model 5246B002

In a first for Canon Speedlites, the versatile new Speedlite 320EX features an LED light on the front of the flash body that can be used to illuminate nearby subjects in dim light. The light is ideal for video recording but can also be used as a modeling light or as an AF assist beam during Live View shooting. When used with EOS DSLRs that have integrated Speedlite transmitters, the Speedlite 320EX can be used as a wireless slave unit positioned off-camera. A flash release function further facilitates wireless flash shooting by enabling the shutter to be released remotely from the Speedlite 320EX with a two-second delay, which gives the photographer time to re-aim the flash if necessary. The Speedlite 320EX combines rich bounce functionality with high performance, ensuring smooth, professional-looking results. Flash coverage and guide number can be changed manually by extending or retracting the flash head. The Normal position provides wide coverage equivalent to a 24mm lens (full-frame) with a guide number of 79 (ft.) / 24 (m) at ISO 100. The Tele position boosts the guide number to 105 (ft.) / 32 (m) at ISO 100 while providing coverage for lenses 50mm and longer (full-frame). Lightweight, pocket-sized, grip-friendly, and with an intuitive, easy-to-operate design, the Speedlite 320EX is powered by 4 AA batteries (not included) and recharges silently in approximately 2 seconds.

Features:

  • Built-in LED light can be used to illuminate nearby subjects in dim light - especially useful when shooting video, as a modeling light or as an AF assist beam (with Live View), providing up to four hours of continuous lighting with fully-charged AA batteries
  • Versatile vertical and horizontal bounce capability provides an extended range of possible lighting effects
  • Flash release function triggers the camera wirelessly from the flash on a 2-second delay, allowing the flash to be repositioned to illuminate the subject
  • Wireless Slave function supports three groups and four channels, allowing the flash to be positioned off-camera
  • Flash coverage can be switched by extending or retracting flash head, with Normal (24mm full-frame equivalent, max. Guide No. 79 ft./24m at ISO 100) and Tele (50mm full-frame equivalent, max. Guide No. 105 ft./32m at ISO 100) settings

          Comments about Canon Speedlite 320EX Flash:

          I bought the Speedlite 320EX about two weeks ago since I was interested in trying some wireless flash photography. This affordable unit makes a great companion to my Speedlite 580EX II, which is my primary flash. The E-TTL II wireless works without a glitch, really. The 320EX is certainly a refreshing change from the complexity of the 580EX II. The back panel is just so retro, and I love it! Everything is done using slider switches and push buttons, no complicated LCDs in sight. I do wish Canon had put in a test flash button and an auto zooming flash head (perhaps on the 320 Mark II?) but these niggles aside, the 320EX works, and it works VERY well. For times when I don't need the sheer power of the 580EX II, the 320EX fills up its place nicely. I'm so glad I bought this guy instead of the 270EX II, the extra money spent was well worth it. I haven't tried out the LED light for movies yet, but it's bright and I'll experiment with it soon as I can. All in all another great Speedlite from Canon!

            I love this Speedlite the design looks and feels durable. The quality in light that produces its very high quality. I would highly recommend this product to any photographer looking to produce professional looking photos not to mention canons cleaver idea of an integrated LED Light just perfect. The only problem would actually be not finding a diffuser for it but considering that its canons latest newest flash i'm cutting break.

              Comments about Canon Speedlite 320EX Flash:

              Okay so i have had this flash for a little over 2 weeks and so for everything is great. This is my first flash ever but right off the bat I can say that this blows the pop up flash out of the water. The recycle time seems to be above average. The exposure seems to be dead on and I have been very satisfied with the battery life.I have had a few times where the flash does not fire when it is set to slave mode but im still getting used to the flash so it could have been user error. The only other down side I can think of is I cant find a diffuser for it anywhere aside from the tacky looking universal ones. Hopefully Canon finds a way to fit a diffuser on this thing.
