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.
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.
Excerpt: I bought this flash as a slave mostly and used it as main flash sometime since it is small to carry.<br /><br />There are couple issues I have seen some far.<br />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.<br />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.<br />The test button is hard to press sometime.
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!
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. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />Note, this flash takes AAA batteries.
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.
Excerpt: 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.<br />Comes with a handy bracket and a couple of AAA batteries and is ready for use out of the box. <br /> Excellent purchase for the point and shoot owners as the built in flash in the cameras are often underpowered and weak.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Inexpensive, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought this specifically to use with my Fuji X100. I wanted a small flash that was more powerful and flexible then the built-in flash and this really fits the bill. For [$] you cannot beat this little unit. Don't get me wrong, it is not industrial strength, i.e. handle with care but it is really small and lots of options. I have several Sunpak flashes and they build some good products as long as you careful and don't bang them around.
Pros: Easy To Use, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Lots of flexibility, Reliable
Excerpt: This flash works fine for me, but watch out for the on-off switch sliding into the "on" position in your camera bag and draining the batteries. This happened a couple of times with my first one, which I recently misplaced, and just happened once again on the brand-new unit that I bought as a replacement. It doesn't take much for the switch to move!
