The New Canon 320EX The past few days I have been able to sit down and play with the new Canon 320EX flash. With this flash it seems that Canon went back to the drawing board to create just a basic flash with a few extra perks. With its manually adjustable flash head for 24mm or 50mm lens coverage (equivalent to 15mm or 32mm lenses on APS-C cameras) it covers a ton of range for the first time DSLR buyers who don’t want to drop $500 for their first flash. One of my favorite things about this flash would have to be the remote control transmission which is a new feature where you can fire the camera with the Speedlite 320EX. When held off-camera, press the flash’s remote release button, and fire the compatible EOS camera*. Another totally new innovation: a large LED illuminator for video lighting of nearby subjects, or for use as a viewing/focusing assist during still shooting which would come in handy for any low-light situation.
* Compatible EOS bodies for Remote Control Transmission: EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D, EOS Rebel T3i, T2i, T1i, XSi, XTi, XT, and original EOS Digital Rebel
