    Fujifilm EF-20 reviews

    EF-20 Flash is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay Used this with the xpro 1. Nice look and compact. The shoe swivels forward and back for different angles to direct the light from bounce to direct flash. Quick EV adjust button is nice. Great fill light and skin tones are great. Slow recycle and turns off after a while. It literally turns off. You can't wake it up by pressing the shutter button half way. You have to press the power button and by that time the flash needs to warm up again. It takes a while. Also any EV adjustments you have made on the flash do not save. Not a flash suitable for that moment you want to grab that comes as fast as it goes that just so happens to need that extra pop off light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Essential Dedicated Flash The Fujifilm EF 20 has got to be the most compact an essential piece of dedicated gear for my Fujiflm HS20 EXR. I don't leave home without it. Great for when you need fill flash or an evening out on the town. Slips into a jacket pocket with out the bulk. Great for any situation. I can also recommend the Sto-Fen OM-RQ Omni Bounce Flash Diffuser B&H #STOMRQ which I also found to be of excellent value at only $16.95. With both of these, I'm now experiencing a more professional flash photo then when I was using the pop-up on board flash. I highly recommend both the Fujifilm EF-20 flash and the Sto-Fen OM-RQ Omni diffuser.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little flash I see only two negatives to this flash: 1) there is no focus assist lamp, and 2) when pointed straight on for fill, the lens hood for my 18-55 lens on my X-E1 still casts a shadow. Other than that, this thing is tiny, has a useful bounce capability, takes only two AA batteries, and it just works. Oh there is one more minor niggle -there is no power switch that stays on/off. There is an electronic power button, which allows it to turn off when the camera does. Unfortunately, it doesn't turn ON when the camera does... which means if you leave your camera on, and wake it up with a half-press of the shutter, you will need to remember to turn the flash on separately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, good value This is a useful upgrade to an on-camera flash, or the small unit that comes with the Fujifilm X-T1. Its output isn't that powerful, but you already know that from the guide number. For augmenting dim natural light or providing a little fill-flash I have found it to be great, and coverage is even with no hot spots. The head tilts for bounce flash in five stops between forward and vertical. There is no swivel. Power output is adjustable +/- one stop in half stop increments. One cute touch is the foot swivels into the unit when not in use, making it more compact in your bag. Recycling time is mediocre.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Flash Lightweight but well built. TTL works great with my X100. Bounce flash well balanced and looks great! Easy to use if you understand how flash units work. In TTL mode, it handles f/8 with a bounce off a living room ceiling quite well. Adjustable EV works fine. It balances perfectly on the X100. Camera controls (shutter dial) is easily reached simply by flipping the flash upward. Complaints I have seen in this review section are largely unfounded whining. The EF20 is what it is... a small, inexpensive but more than adequate alternative to the onboard flash on the X100. Bravo Fuji!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and very useful on the X-Pro1 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It might be small but it does the job 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from compact. and easy to use 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.
