I like the SF-20 but it depends on how much power you want and if you want
to be able to do simple bounce flash. The SF-20 can do bounce flash but you
have to use a TTL cord and hold it off the camera. I do not use flash very
often and appreciate the small size of the SF-20; makes me more likely to be
actually carrying it when I need it.
