FEATURES

Bounce flash


As the name implies, “bounce flash” means light is bounced off a surface such as the ceiling rather than being directed straight at the subject. This reduces the intensity of shadows and produces a softer light for more natural looking images. Since the flash position can be easily adjusted via a slide switch, this bounce flash technique can be used anytime, anywhere.

Direct flash


Simply use it facing forward as a direct flash that provides greater reach than the camera’s built-in flash. Whenever you need it, just attach it and count on its ability to bring out the details in evening outdoors situations as well as indoors in dimly lit rooms. 

Automatic power on / off


The flash unit automatically powers on when it is raised into a shooting position, and turns off when the flash body is lowered flat. This means the flash is ready when you’re ready to shoot, and also helps to avoid unnecessary power drain while not in use.

Wireless control


Attach to a compatible camera and use this flash unit to wirelessly control other compatible flash units.

Compact and slim


The HVL-F20M is only 24 mm thick, giving it an extremely slim profile that makes it easy to use and to carry. Its compact body takes up minimal space in your camera case or bag where room is limited, and once you put it on your camera it’s very easy to handle.

Multi Interface Shoe


This product is designed for use with Multi Interface Shoe flash.
