Expand your creativity with the revolutionary Sony
HVL-F20AM compact external flash, which extends illumination range beyond the
camera's built-in flash.
Bounce flash enables shadow-less indirect lighting
while TTL (through the lens) flash exposure is automatically controlled by your
? DSLR for easy and intuitive operation—all in an ultra-compact design which
folds flat when not in use.
Though compact and lightweight, the HVL-F20AM has a maximum range twice that of the built-in flash units on ?230, ?330 and ?380 cameras. This is represented as the guide number (GN) of 20 with a 50mm focal distance at ISO 100.
Bounce flash enables shadowless indirect lighting
When set to ‘indoor’ shooting mode, the flash points up to bounce light off the ceiling for shadowless illumination of your subject. When set to the ‘outdoor’ shooting mode, the flash directs light directly at your subject.
Built-in diffuser for wide and telephoto shooting
With the built-in diffuser the flash illumination covers an angle of view of 27mm at the default Standard Position setting. If users want to to shoot at a greater distance, they can rotate the dial on the side of the flash unit to the ‘Tele’ Position. Although this reduces flash coverage to an angle of view of 50mm, it extends the range to illuminate more distant subjects.
Light (90g / 3.2oz), slim (24mm / 1”) ultra-compact design
With a weight of only 90g (approx.) and a thickness of only 24mm (1 inch), the HVL-F20AM is so compact it can simply be folded down and left mounted on the camera when it is not in use, or detached and carried in a shirt pocket. When removed from the camera, the flash unit's hot shoe can be folded to the side, making the body even more compact.
