Product Description

The Canon 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.

First - even if you are an amature photographer like me, you can seriously upgrade your photos by getting an external flash. A big external flash sometimes seems like a very "proferssional" accessory and people may think only professional photographers need and use it, but once you see how your photos look comparing to ANY built-in flash, you will realize that this is one of the smartests upgrades you can make.
this is a very good flash, but with current pricing you can get the next model up, the 430EX-II, for about $30 more. The 430 will give you two main benefits: more light and better AF assitance (Infrared instead of flash bursts). However, the 320 has a nice LED light feature that the 430 doesn't have, which can be useful for shooting movies.
I had the 320 for a short while and I liked it.
Things I liked:
* nice size and weight
* quick charge
* decent amount of light
* can tilt and swivel to bounce light off walls etc.
* simple to operate (few very clear buttons)
* nice LED feature
* easy to use locking mechanism
* good price

things I didn't like (and why I ended up upgrading to 430):
* could use more light, especially when bouncing off the ceiling
* the next model, 430ex ii, is only $30 more and has more light
* I ended up not using the LED light at all...

Overall I would recommend this if you are looking for your first external flash and want to save some money by not going for the more expensive models. There's also a cheaper entry level model, the 270, which is supposed to be pretty good and is very attractively priced.

Yes, the 320EX has a cool LED video/model light, and yes the tilt/swivel head and slave capability are nice. But I'm selling mine on eBay for one reason: the focus assist. Instead of using a subtle red light like most flashes, this one puts out a veritable light show of sputtering bright flashes before focus is achieved, which is very annoying when photographing people indoors.

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. On the back panel set the On-Off switch to the Slave position, set your desired Group and Channel, and away you go. Bear in mind that the 320EX can only function as a slave, not as a master.

The 320EX slots in between the 430EXII and 270EX II. It's certainly a refreshing change from the complexity of the 580EX II. The back panel screams 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 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. Just remember that the main flash will not fire when the LED light is on.

All in all this is another great Speedlite from Canon. By the way, readers here might like to know that Stofen has already come out with an Omni-Bounce (OM-EU) for the Speedlite 320EX. Stofen Omnibounce for Canon 320EX Flash Amazing!

I've had the 320ex for about a year now. At first I thought I was hardly ever gonna use it but then I got a bit curious about the slave function. Not having any radio triggers and being a novice I gave that dream up, until I bought a 7D. Things started to get interesting then! First of all its super simple to go off camera. Hit a switch, pop the 7D flash and away you go really (assuming you set up the 7D for wireless). And that's what I love about it. Anytime I go traveling or go to a party I take the 320ex with me. Being small, light and cheap makes it ideal for that. However, if you plan on doing anything other than fill flash you might wanna get a 430 or 580 ex. Its not that powerful. Think about this, if you have to fire it at or close to full power all the time the batteries aren't gonna last long, right?

Ok the good points
- small and light
- slave function, with dedicated switch
- tilt and swivel
- easy as pie to use

Bad
- not powerful enough for modifiers like umbrellas (it works but not ideal)
- only zooms manually from 24-50mm (major downer but you could snoot it or grid it)
- The LED is a novelty, haven't found much use for it and isn't powerful enough for video in my humble opinion.

As a learning tool it has been invaluable to me, I thought of selling it but you can always use an extra speedlite and like I said its great for small parties where you don't want to intimidate people with a massive flash!

UPDATE - This flash will not work with manual triggers only ETTL ones like the pixel kings that allow you to change the power in camera. Otherwise it will just dump at full power. This should have been obvious to me but it's not until you try something that you realize! So, for off camera work with multiple flashes it isn't ideal. Not what it was designed for anyway but thought I should mention it.
