PF20XD Sunpak Slave Flash is great
“The PF 20XD Sunpak slave flash was recommended to me by a professional photographer. It meets my personal needs perfectly. I use it with my Ricoh camera. It is powerful enough and easy to use for an amateur like me. I am very satisfied with it.” – By evie

Excellent Flash
“Bought this flash for my Ricoh GRD2 but have also used on on my Canon SD800 and Nikon D80 and D50. Small and simple to use, this is a great little flash when I don’t want to lug around my much larger and heavier Nikon SB800. The head doesn’t swivel but the built in diffuser is a nice touch.” – By Mr. Inky

Very Satisfied
“I bought this to help achieve better indoor photos at family gatherings. I just leave it on a high shelf, forget about it, and let it work. It works well with my Canon G11, since I can just dial down the exposure compensation a couple of stops and get great pictures. The power settings and built in diffuser also give you a nice range of options.” – By Jittoku

For the money – excellent
“This is not the most powerful flash (which is understood before you buy it), this unit is extremely small, light and portable. Very easy to affix to any surface with a rubber band. Configuration was a breeze and within moments had it set up to work perfectly with my D80 and Nikon’s CLS system. The only negative is that is uses AAA batteries, not AA as stated in the manual.” – By Sean

fantastic little flash for the money
“For $46 I paid it’s a steal. It’s small, light, reasonably powerful (you don’t need a mighty flash when you can put it very close to your subject). Its optical slave mode works very reliably, I use a mixture of flashes including CLS flashes in manual mode and these marvels…” – By Eugene Bogorad

Sunpak PF20XD Features & Specifications

The Sunpak PF20XD Auto/Manual Digital Slave Flash is an ultra-compact slave-trigger flash that comes with different slave-modes so that it’s compatible with almost any digital compact camera. It is compact enough to easily fit into your jacket pocket. The unit is designed for use with cameras that don’t feature a hot shoe and includes a bracket that allows the unit to be attached to the side of the camera.

This flash is designed to cover the normal focal length of 24mm (in 35mm format). It works as a slave flash with 3 automatic f-stops, or can be controlled by manually cutting back on the power output (1/4, 1/8, 1/16 & 1/32).

• Compact and lightweight slave flash, ideal for “point-n-shoot” style digital cameras

• Instant correction keys allow for easy and fast correction to settings
