Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Superior build quality, Fast recycling time, affordable, retro looks on the back panel
Cons: no auto zoom head, no test flash button
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!

Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Superior build quality, Fast recycling time, awesome led light
Cons: can't find a diffuser for it!
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.

Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Superior build quality, Fast recycling time, slave setting
Cons: no option for diffuser
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.
