Fuji EF-X20 Poor Flash Contact with X10 Hotshoe
Jul 2, 2012

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone else is having the following problem with the EF-X20 on the X10 body. Received mine the other day, and often in TTL mode when attached to the X10 hotshoe, the flash misfires when taking a shot and outputs at full power.

It seems to be that this is caused by a loose contact with the hotshoe, if I lightly apply some pressure to the top of the flash it never misfires. Looking at the shoe on the EF-X20, there is a small pointy silver spring type clip on either side, but my version doesn't seem to have a lot of "spring" to it, so I was wondering if this is causing it to wobble in the shoe.

Can anyone else confirm if they have a similar problem, or whether their "springy clip" is more robust?

Thanks.

Fujifilm X10
