EF-X20 Review & Follow-Up


Woah, great work. I have zero experience with flash but I might need it for a wedding in december. What I would love is a flash that is as unobtrusive as possible, as simple as possible – something that supports the moment without scaring the crap out of people. It seems that you’ve found that setup. Being a newbie I’m very curious about that cable that you use and how it’s connected. I’m going to have to look into it. Environment wise I’m of course a big fan of rechargeble batteries but I think their single use brethren pack more of a punch.

Your work is awesome and really inspires me. Candid stuff full of life, love and imperfection.

Thanks for sharing the inspiration and the know-how!

Thanks very much for taking the time to read and for your kind words! It’s a nifty little flash and very handy for sure. I still try to use as little flash as possible but it’s very useful in some of the darker receptions for dancing pics.

The cable I use is the Pixel FC311 – it’s been a couple of years since I bought it but I believe it’s the Canon one which also fits with the Fuji hotshoe. I also use a Godox TT685 now in conjunction with the Godox X1TF as a really affordable option for off camera flash. Sometimes I’ll pop it on a stand in the corner of a dancefloor which is also pretty unobtrusive.
