However, I WAS on the verge of returning my purchase as I couldn't get it to work. Lots of head scratching, not feeding the cat, ignoring the 'you're quiet tonight, anything wrong?' conversation openers and cussing didn't help so I consulted the xPro 1 manual (I SHOULD have done this first, of course!). To cut a very very long story short, the flash will not fire if you have set the set the camera to silent mode (pg. 54 footnote). As I enjoy the relative silence of the camera, this goes against my better instincts. But, I still believe that I've chosen the best of the Fuji flash units. The EF 42 is too big and aesthetically daft sitting on top of the xPro and the smaller and more expensive metal EF X20 does nothing that the EF20 can do better( It is VERY beautiful though!).
In terms of price, the EF20 is smack dab in the middle and is a great little piece of kit.
I've just spent a month coming to this decision: I hope this little review helps.
Power output is fine, it just takes a Looooonnnng long time to recycle meaning for me it's close to unusable. Options are rudimentary at best limiting this unit to some basic on camera work. It can be used off camera but it's very hard to judge the output.
It's better than the EF-X20 in that it takes AA batteries (instead of the Ef-X20's AAAs) and can be pointed upwards to bounce, though this is limited to one movement making bounce flash unavailable in portrait orientation.
It has a habit of turning itself off, even if you haven't managed to already accidentally do that whilst trying to adjust the 'settings', and when it comes back on it doesn't remember what your last settings were.
It's OK as an absolute last resort, but the "I might, I might not" attitude of this flash makes it an unreliable and therefore unusable bit of kit taking up valuable space in my camera bag. There are better options for Fuji Cameras now so it's impossible to justify owning the EF-20
The size is perhaps it's only redeeming feature, but at the expense of true usability.
As far as using the Fuji EF-20 is concerned there were no problems at all. The quality improvement over the built in flash is quite significant. I am using it on a Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR Digital Camera (16MP EXR-CMOS Sensor, 30x Manual Optical Zoom) 3 inch Tiltable LCD Screen so I didn't anticipate anything going awry. I have tried it on my S9500 and, apart from having to use it in manual mode, it works just fine. The built in wide-angle diffuser is a neat touch and works well at 24mm. The up/down adjustment on the back of the unit hasn't been used as yet as the HS30EXR/flash combination works so well. On the S9500 it will be of more use I imagine although on my , admittedly brief, test firing it proved to be unnecessary.
The fold up feature is very good and does make for a compact little addition to an increasingly crowded gadget bag. The bounce flash movement is a little stiff beyond 45 degrees.
As far as niggles are concerned the instruction book leaves a bit to be desired, especially in regard to opening the battery compartment. This is opened by pressing on the ridged section then flipping the cover open with the other hand. In the manual it says 'slide the battery cover release button downward to open the battery compartment'. Well it doesn't slide, it depresses. It's not a huge niggle I know but when you are dealing with delicate and easily broken parts it does make a difference. One star away for that.
All in all this is a neat and powerful little flash and well worth the money.
This truly is an accessory you need to portraits when taking indoor or party shots.
Fuji price is £130, so bonus this is over £30'cheaper.
Can also migrate this over the higher end fuji cameras if I upgrade later.
Only problem I have is I wished I'd bought this when I got the camera!!!
I also like how easy it is to change the strength of the flash at the push of a button.
I chose against getting a bigger flashgun (EF42/Nissin i40) as they're bulky, and overkill for a small camera system. I chose this over the EFX20 as the EFX20 is non-directional and costs more.
After a couple of months use, I'm pleased I made the right choice. It's small enough so I can take it anywhere, and being directional (even if just up and down) it's given me better results than the EFX20 would have done.
I'd recommend trying this before going for bigger or more expensive options.
