My flash solution for X10
Apr 27, 2012

I've been looking for a flash solution for the X10 for quite some time now and it is a fact that I did not like the EF-20. It does seem like a great little flash and at the right size for the camera, but I needed some more control, and slave capability.

So I went for the Sunpak PF20XD. No TTL, but 3 different "legacy" Auto settings plus 5 manual positions, plus slave and slave with pre-flashes. And small. Smaller than EF-20. And cheaper. I mean really cheaper.

Thankfully, I did not regret it. It is an excellent little performer.

I am very pleased with it. However, I am also considering the EF-X20 which has manual settings, it is TTL and slave, but pricey. Does anyone have it? Should I get 3 more PF20XD's instead and print more photos with the remaining money?

Keep shooting.
