"Canon Speedlite 320EX Flash" review

Batteries and Power

The 320EX takes AA batteries, as do most speedlites. The different recycling times refer to 50% charge time and 100% charge time.
What is the Guide Number.

We've talked about how the 320EX has a guide number of 105 feet (32 meters). Guide Number / Aperture at ISO 100 = Distance
105 feet / f8 = 13.1 feet

Flash Head

The 320EX is able to bounce light at angles of 0, 60, 75, or 90 degrees. LED Light
A new feature on the 320EX is the yellow light situated on the front of the flashgun. Wireless Capabilities.

Like the 430EX II, the 320EX can be used on one of four transmission channels. Slave mode is activated by merely flicking a switch.

If Canon produce a wider range of firmware updates, this could prove an essential piece of equipment.
