Canon Unveils New Speedlite 320EX and Speedlite 270EX II

In addition to two new entry-level DSLRs, Canon is also releasing two new entry-level flash units, the 320EX and 270EX II. The 320EX includes a built-in LED light designed to provide illumination for video recording DSLRs, can be assigned to one of four channels, and can be wirelessly controlled with the newly announced T3i/600D. The 270EX II is a compact, lightweight flash that swivels in four positions ranging from 0 to 90 degrees, and can be wirelessly triggered but does not have channel capabilities.

Both units will be available in April, with the 320EX priced at $250 and the 270EX II priced at $170.

    I find them still expensive compared to Yongnuo flashes. You can get them for around 40 to 60 dollar (or more if you want a better one), but they work like a charm!

    I’m excited by all this improved built in wireless control. Why doesn’t my 5DmkII have any of it?

    I’m guessing the 580exII (or maybe 590ex ?) Is going to have some impressive improvements in wireless capabilities.

    build in wireless shooting got introduced with the 7D so I think we can expect it on the 5DmkIII…
