Good price, but this flash is only justified if one owns a Sony Alpha 900 or 850. Otherwise the HVL-F42AM is a much better option

why?



The F20AM is only slightly more powerfull than the integrated flash found on all other Sony Alpha DSLRs (Guide Number 20 vs. around 12-14). The only benefit, besides the slight additional power (half an f:stop) is that it can be used as a bounce flash... but power is too low to do this well.

The Alphas 850 and 900 don't have an integrated flash, and -with these cameras only- this flash can also control wirelessly other Sony flashes (by not another F20AM)

The next model up in Sony's range (F42AM) is much more powerful (max GN of 42), has more features such as zoom head, manual control, swivel (in addition to tilt/bounce), and the ability to be controlled wirelessly by any Sony camera with an integrated flash or an Alpha 850/900 with a flash with controller capability (ie. F20AM or F58AM, but not F42AM)

i got a mate to pick one up from Sheffield for me. I'm quite pleased with the bounce setting on the flash. Not bad for the £60
