Sony Introduces HVL-F20AM Affordable Flash

Sony HVL-F20AM Flashgun

Debuting with Sony’s new DSLRs, the HVL-F20AM compact external flash weighs just under 100g. Sony says the new affordable ($130) flash is an ideal add-on for anyone who wants an extra light source to supplement their camera’s pop-up flash.

It has a Guide Number of 20 (GN20) and can be used to bounce light off the ceiling to eliminate harsh shadows and achieve more even illumination when shooting indoors. When not in use, the HVL‑F20AM folds down to keep a low profile.

Sony says the HVL-F20AM doubles as an ideal wireless flash controller for the full-frame α900. While Sony’s flagship DSLR does not have its own integrated flash, the HVL-F20AM can be used as an inexpensive trigger for wireless remote flash heads.
