Great on my Rolleiflex

Rolleiwerker, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Works great on my old Rolleiflex film camera. I don't need TTL, just little fill-flash for day-time portraits and light for indoor shots. Used at a wedding and worked great.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Best Little Flash

mo, Adorama
22 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This little workhorse is cheap and provides all the light one might need for most small camera photography. Off shoe it's even better.<br /><br />I bought it because it's completely manual or auto. Too bright? Just dial it down until the light is just a kiss. Flip up the defuser for even less light.<br /><br />Buy two because they're inexpensive and the hotshoe invariably breaks off on the 4th bump. Also use a bit of tape to keep it from switching on in your bag.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Not Durable

Good for Price

  • Excerpt: Bought this as a second wireless/backup flash. It reliably triggers from the camera flash (x100s) or another off camera light. I like the small size. Wish it had more power settings and it were easier to tell which setting is selected.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Great Little Flash

Flyfisher, B&H Photo
20 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Use this with several small digital cameras. Makes a big difference with my flash pictures. Very easy to use. Power control for flash output easy to use and allows you to get the right output for your picture. Compact. Have tried using it as a slave and works well (have never used a slave before). No problems on four different cameras.

A small flash

Super, B&H Photo
23 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this flash as a slave mostly and used it as main flash sometime since it is small to carry. There are couple issues I have seen some far. Auto function is a bit off depends on the environment, I used a light meter to check the ourput, it can be off more than a stop. The M/S1/S2 switch is hidden! you can't use your finger to slide it unless you have long finger nail or use some tools. The test button is hard to press sometime.

Doesnt work with Fujifilm XPro1 : (

25 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this as a flash to use on my FujiFilm XPro1, unfortunately, it doesnt work connected directly to the cameras hotshoe. All my other flashes do, but this one doesnt for some reason. It will however connect to the pc sync and work. but thats just annoying. Other then that this flash is great on other cameras and is very versatile.

  • Excerpt: 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!

Small, but flexible

Neosniffron, B&H Photo
6 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The PF20XD is a perfect match for my Olympus EPL1. According to Sunpak via email, this flash has only 6V trigger voltage so it should be fine with almost all modern digital cameras. It is small, light, and extremely flexible. The flash has 3 auto settings, plus manual power adjustments, and works well as a slave flash for point and shoots too. The build quality is better than I thought. Note, this flash takes AAA batteries.

Perfect pocket portrait pal

Tim N, B&H Photo
8 August 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a versatile light. I use it off-camera, either hand-held and radio triggered (via hotshoe-to-PC adapter to MicroSync receiver) or as an optical slave to another radio-triggered off-camera flash. The built-in diffuser and the manually controlled power settings make it useful for on-site portraits. I always zero in on my flash exposures manually by viewing test exposures on the camera LCD screen, and balance with ambient light if it's available and interesting.
