    I use this primarily for close ups of animals, often through glass. I do not need a lot of power so the 20 guide number is fine for me. I also use it with an off camera cord so the lack of a swivel head is also ok for me.
    This is one of only 2 flash units that will currently work with the Fuji hs20 (the ef42 is the other one)
    I love the compact size of this unit. The shoe folds into the flash to take up even less room in the camera bag. Always turn the flash on after making all connections and turning on the camera or the ttl will not work.
    When you turn off the camera the flash shuts off automatically and you will need to turn it back on next time you use it.
    The price is rather high and the unit can only be used for the Fuji cameras it is made for. It works with a universal off camera cord but surprisingly also worked with a canon cord.
    I do not like the fact that l have to use a special propriatary flash just for the hs20 camera. There are only two units that will work with this camera, if you want a simple, reliable, compact overpriced flash go with this one.
    If you need a more versatile powerfull flash you will need to go with the ef42 instead.

    I've had issues (several - not just one or two) where the flags unit apparently becomes loosely connected to my Fujifilm X-E2, hence, there is no TTL happening. The shots where this occurs is totally whited out. Other than that issue, it IS a good unit However, due to the problem I mention, this unit will be going back :( Additionally, I've had instances where the recycle time has taken up to 10 full seconds - and yes, the batteries were new or close to it.

      Comments about Fujifilm EF-20 Flash:

      Make no mistake, there are larger and more capable flashes out there. Even the EF-X20 (which I think looks cooler). But, what's really great about the EF-20 is its ability to swivel up for bounce flash. Powerful enough for fill and bounce in a room with 10' ceilings.

      Really the best thing about this flash in my opinion is how packable it is. Paired with a X100T, and you've got a almost pocketable system for street photography.

      You probably won't be shooting with this flash for a client or wedding but, I think its perfect for everyday photography.

        Very small and light yet, powerful flash. You can adjust the intensity of the flash and it has a build in diffuser. Flash recycle time is fast.

        By Dodger

        from Portland, OR

        Comments about Fujifilm EF-20 Flash:

        I love this flash. It's powerful enough for my purposes, the head tilts and I can put it in my pocket. Direct flash can be ugly and this little thing bounces. It mounts in a jiffy and I'm ready to go. Money well spent as far as I'm concerned.

        Good stuff!

        By Franz

        from London, ON Canada

        Comments about Fujifilm EF-20 Flash:

        Works with TTL on the Finepix S1!
        I couldn't find any info on using this on the S1 50x zoom camera that came out in 2014. All searches come up with S1 Pro, or X-S1 info.
        The Fujifilm documentation for the camera doesn't explain much, just says TTL compatible basically.
        I did learn from the manual that you DO NOT need to turn on the external flash setting when using Fujifilm flashes. If you do it behaves like a slave flash. And use good batteries. TTL doesn't work on cheap batteries apparently.

        Good Small Bounce Flash

        By Pete in SD

        from California

        Comments about Fujifilm EF-20 Flash:

        Good small flash. I use mine on my XE-1. Provides balanced light and gets the job done. I use mine to primarily for bounce flash lighting and occasionally fill flash. 90 degree vertical rotation but no horizontal.

              Purchased this Fuji flash for use with my Fuji X100s and I am quite happy I did. It provides the extra power and reach that you sometimes need. works great as a bounce and fill unit. Recycles quickly and works great with a cannon or Vello of camera flash cord. Very pleased with this small flash unit.

              This flash reminds me of the Nikon SB400. Small but quite useful as a fill-flash and some indoors application. Recycling is relatively slow, especially after a full-power flash.

                Comments about Fujifilm EF-20 Flash:

                This is quality TTL flash that is super easy to use. When using this flash on my X-Pro1, I make sure that I have the ISO set to a fixed value (usually ISO200 or ISO400) and the shutter set to 1/125sec.

                It then works like a charm in manual or shutter priority mode (with Aperture set on automatic).

                The exposure compensation settings on the flash are easy to toggle.

                It has a super easy diffuser that seems to work well in direct mode.

                The portraits I have taken indoors with this flash, in bounce mode, have come out super nice.

                Nice job, Fuji!

                      I'm a purist in photography, use flash only in emergency when ISO 3200 and a fast prime lens isn't enough or need some fills to compensate harsh shadows. This little toy not just fits in my pocket but fits the bill about all of the cases I need it for. I wish it's boxy shaped instead of the "aerodynamic" shape for a better cosmetic match with the x cameras, also the stofen diffuser wouldn't fall off as easy as it does now. The light amount is more than enough for a fill even bounced what I do almost all the time, and recharging time is acceptable unless you want to shoot fast, at small apartures or low ISO. As a main light source you need a bigger brother supported by a battery pack that I don't want to carry around anymore. A good affordable, reliable and convenient solution if you use it properly and won't take much room in your bag. Light temperatura will change at different power settings that's not a big issue for me, I shoot mostly B&W or adjust in Photoshop anyway all the color ones.

                      I am still learning to use my Fuji X100S. I have been reading about the benefits of fill flash for outdoor portraits and have not liked some of the inside shots I have taken at higher ISOs, wide open lens, and faster shutter speeds. At this price, a reliable, well made OEM flash with bounce capabilities was a no brainer. Thanks B&H.

                      Comments about Fujifilm EF-20 Flash:

                      Although it isn't as powerful, nor does it cycle as fast as the Nikon SB-400, the EF-20 is much more powerful than the tiny (though brilliant) flash on my X100S, plus is has the ability to bounce. It works perfectly and is small and light enough to be carried in your front pocket.

                        I use this flash with my Fuji XE2. I like:
                        * the simplicity of its features (just flash compensation to +/- 1)
                        * the ability to fold the hotshoe connection into the flash - it makes it more streamlined and portable.
                        * The small size works well with the small camera.

                        Because this flash was not specifically designed for this camera the side of the flash overlaps the A/Shutter speed dial so it can be difficult to set your exposure.

                          Use it with Fujifilm X100s. Simple and with the essencial buttons to regulate light. Ideal use with the lens hood attached once there is no shadow in the inferior part of picture when internal flash is used. Head tilts up to 90º.

                            I got the EF-20 to go with my Fujifilm XE-1 camera. The camera and flash work well together and, using the bounce feature and the EV adjust buttons, produce pleasing images. The flash does not rotate horizontally so ceiling bounce shots in portrait mode are not available. As the XE-1 is so good in low light, I generally just use the flash for fill and it works very well in that capacity.

                            This flash puts out exactly what I need. Not blazing power, just right for most general shooting. If I was a pro, I would not even be using the camera that this is for. It is perfect for me though.
