Sony HVL-F20M Overview
With a notably slim, compact design and ADI / P-TTL support, the HVL-F20M External Flash from Sony is ideal for those looking to add a little fill light to their images or for use as a wireless TTL controller for off-camera flash units without adding too much weight to their gear bag. It offers a modest guide number of 66' at ISO 100 and 50mm along with two coverage settings for 27mm or 50mm with full-frame sensors. Also, the unit can tilt the flashtube upward 75° for achieving softer, more diffuse bounce lighting.For remote triggering of additional off-camera flash units, the HVL-F20M is able to work as a TTL controller. Also, it has slow, first and second curtain sync settings and will recycle in 0.1 to 5 seconds. Additionally, it runs on 2 AAA batteries and comes with a terminal protector cap and a carrying case.This unit is compatible with Sony's Multi Interface Shoe and is not natively compatible with the older Sony/Minolta Auto-Lock Accessory Shoe. Though, with the use of ADP-AMA Shoe Adapter, Sony cameras with the Auto-Lock Accessory Shoe can be adapted to use Multi Interface Shoe external flashes with full compatibility.
Compact, easy-to-use flash for advanced lighting
The guide number of 20 (GN20) makes it powerful enough to illuminate subjects up to 5 meters away (TELE position, ISO 100, F4).
As the name implies, "bounce flash" means that 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.
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 outdoor situations as well as indoor 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.
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.
Advanced Distance Integration (ADI)
ADI provides automatic metering that is virtually unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds, maintaining correct exposure even with overly reflective or overly dark subjects. It pre-flashes the unit to incorporate the reflected light measurement, together with precise distance information from a compatible camera's lens, to achieve the optimum flash level (E-mount not supported).
Auto White Balance Adjustment
Colour temperature varies according to the environment you're shooting in, and the colour temperature of a flash should match that of the ambient light to look natural. With this intelligent function, colour temperature information is transferred from the flash unit to the camera for correct White Balance setting, thereby enabling more natural looking flash photography.
