5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, but better than other Fuji alternative flashes, July 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have the EF-20 Fuiji flash for my x100 and XP1. It works OK most of the time, but is large and bulky. I ordered the EF-X20 not just because of size, but also because I thought it might offer better EV adjustment. I was pleasantly surprised that indeed TTL metered fill-flash appears to work much better with the EF-X20 compared to the EF-20. Of course the settings may be different for each lighting situation, but I have found that -2/3 EV exposure works well for most outdoor backlight subjects that need some fill-light. The internal diffuser is also a plus for use with the new 14mm lens. The flash takes AAA batteries, which seems like a pain as most other devices take AA, but they are required to keep the device small. I purchased a set of 4 AAA rechargeable batteries which work fine in my AA/AAA charger and I carry the extra 2 in my bag so I am never without a fresh battery. That said, I have never had to change the batteries in the field even with moderate flash use. Whether or not it is fair for Fuji to charge what they do for this flash is not for me to judge, but I would say that I think this unit is a significant improvement over the cheaper EF-20 and it is recommended if you can fit it into your budget.
