Canon Announces New Toys: Part 2 Speedlites

To accompany the new Rebels, Canon announced the all-new Speedlite 320EX and the updated Speedlite 270EX II. Neither are particularly impressive speedlite units as the 580EX II and 430EX II will continue to see most sales, but the “more-powerful-flash-in-budget-and-small-size” segment gains a small update.

The Speedlite 320EX might excite some video shooters with the addition of a LED light, but the unit is too underpowered for serious use both for still or video photography. Check out LitePanels for a great video lighting solution for DSLRs.
