Sunpak PF20XD overview

  • 1Description

The Sunpak PF20XD Digital Slave Flash is an ultra-compact slave-trigger flash that comes with different slave-modes so that it's compatible with almost any digital compact camera. It is compact enough to easily fit into your jacket pocket. The unit is designed for use with cameras that don't feature a hot shoe and includes a bracket that allows the unit to be attached to the side of the camera.

This flash is designed to cover the normal focal length of 35mm or 24mm with the wide-angle diffusion panel. It works as a slave flash with 3 automatic f-stops, or can be controlled by manually cutting back on the power output (1/4, 1/8, 1/16 & 1/32).

Compact and lightweight slave flash, ideal for "point-n-shoot" style digital cameras
Instant correction keys allow for easy and fast correction to settings

    Sunpak PF20XD reviews

    PF20XD Digital Slave Flash is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small flash, nice results! Great little Sunpak flash which has 3 settings for incorporation for all cameras; Dslrs, point and shoots with preflash output and can be used as a fill-in optical slave. Comes with a handy bracket and a couple of AAA batteries and is ready for use out of the box. Excellent purchase for the point and shoot owners as the built in flash in the cameras are often underpowered and weak. Using the PF20XD with point ans shoots it will supplement the flash output and further reduce the noise level in indoor pictures. Also used the flash for fill-in for my Dslr on overcast days Small, inexpensive and light it's great addition to any photgrapher's camera bag or vest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Fun, Fun! If you have manual control of your onboard flash and the abiltiy to control the on board flash power (e.g. E-pl1, most dSLRs, etc.) there is a lot you can do with this slave. Set your onbord flash to 1/16 power and the Sunpac to no pre-flash auto slave mode. Now you can use this off camera with full automatic exposure control for the off camera flash with three choises of aperture! Or if you want to shoot through an umbrella, put it on manual as well and you have five manual power settings. Great for illuminating backgrounds in a more elaborate studio setting too. A really great versatiel product at a really great price. Not a lot of power if you are shooting through some sort of a diffuser but just bump up your ISO a little bit. Tedolph

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Flash Bought this flash for my Ricoh GRD2 but have also used on on my Canon SD800 and Nikon D80 and D50. Small and simple to use, this is a great little flash when I don't want to lug around my much larger and heavier Nikon SB800. The head doesn't swivel but the built in diffuser is a nice touch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PF20XD Sunpak Slave Flash is great The PF 20XD Sunpak slave flash was recommended to me by a professional photographer. It meets my personal needs perfectly. I use it with my Ricoh camera. It is powerful enough and easy to use for an amateur like me. I am very satisfied with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the money - excellent! This is not the most powerful flash (which is understood before you buy it), this unit is extremely small, light and portable. Very easy to affix to any surface with a rubber band. Configuration was a breeze and within moments had it set up to work perfectly with my D80 and Nikon's CLS system. The only negative is that is uses AAA batteries, not AA as stated in the manual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Trigger for Optical Slaves (Canon) I own a Canon Rebel Xti and I've wanted to be completely wireless with my optical slave flashes. However, the pre-flash from the onboard flash can't be disabled so I had to have at least one of my flashes wired to the camera. The PF20XD fits my needs perfectly. It is a simple flash that triggers my optical slaves. It is good timing too because my onboard flash hasn't been working lately, although the hotshoe still works. I like how it has simple controls to dial the flash down. For the price it is great. It'd be nice if it was a tad smaller, but really, I can't complain.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dark Horse To appreciate this, you've got to understand what this is. It's not designed to be your main flash. It's sold as a fill=in helper flash for point and shoots. Don't know how well it works for that. I bought and use it as a (slightly) larger version of a slave flash for my DSLR, and an emergency flash. If you need a simple out camera accent/fill/rim/Strobist light, this is a better deal than the Morris slaves; more power, and adjustable output power. It's not super powerful, but if you just need to add some modeling or separation, or fill in a shadow,it does the job. And the slave can be configure to ignore the preflash of most cameras TTL flashes which makes means you can go really light weight and use it to punch up your pictures taken with on camera flash. Points deducted for not having a 1/2 power option, bounce, or some sort of stand. Also, note the specifications say it takes 2 AA batteries; this is wrong, they're AAAs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I bought this to help achieve better indoor photos at family gatherings. I just leave it on a high shelf, forget about it, and let it work. It works well with my Canon G11, since I can just dial down the exposure compensation a couple of stops and get great pictures. The power settings and built in diffuser also give you a nice range of options.
