It is packed with an array of features including TTL, Manual, and Stroboscopic modes, second curtain sync, optical slave modes. It has a guide number of 32 which is very high for the speedlite of such a small size. Build quality of the flash is much better than you would expect from the flash speedlite of this price tag.
Meike MK-320 is fully compatible with Sony TTL metering. It features a guide number of 32m (ISO 100, 105mm). Bounce lighting is also possible with tilt from -7 to 90° and rotation left 60° and right 90°. The MK-320 TTL exposures are very good and quite consistent, bounced or direct. Flash Expsoure Compensation (FEC) adjustments are working as they should

The first thing that strikes you about the MeiKe Speedlite MK-320 and indeed its primary selling point is its small size. Unlike most flashguns the MK-320 runs on two AA batteries rather than four, allowing the manufacturer to cut down the dimensions considerably. With batteries, the unit weighs just 200 grams. MeiKe MK320 is one of the only flashes that feels balanced on any mirrorless camera.
Meike MK-320 is a small flash of good build quality. It features one game-changer feature that can not be seen anywhere else: USB charging. The MeiKe MK-320 has a micro USB port and you can use it with any 5V, 1A power supply to charge your pair of AA batteries while they are inside the flash. Imagine the saving in weight and space this affords you if packing for a trip somewhere: no AA charger and no spare batteries; just a micro-USB cable that you were probably bringing anyway to charge your smartphone.
The MK-320 is the first flash in this line to have tilt and swivel, which is unusual for a flash so small. The addition of vertical and horizontal rotation means you can use this flash bounced off walls and ceilings, greatly improving the potential quality of images you can create with it mounted on-camera.
The light spread from the MK-320 is smooth and even, without an overly-bright hotspot in the center or any unusual patterns produced from the fresnel. The MeiKe MK320 has a fixed beam angle, equivalent to a 24mm focal length on full frame
