After constantly seeing a number of people reaching out for advice on the best flash for Fuji xt20 cameras each month, we decided to take the time to sit down and type up this article. We are hoping to help as many of our readers as possible as the Fuji xt20 is a fairly popular camera and has a large number of photographers using it as their go-to camera of choice.
We are fully aware of our readers having widely varying budgets so we have decided to actually feature two different flash units. The first is without a doubt our number one recommendation and it is also the cheaper option. The second flash unit that we will be covering has a higher price tag as well as a number of additional features but in all honesty, we are only covering it due to it being a popular choice for the xt20 and we would recommend our first product for the vast majority of our readers any day of the week.

Unlike some of the flash units Godox has produced over the years, the TT350F is actually very easy to use allowing you to quickly and easily get your flash rig in order and prep it ready for your photography session within minutes. You can then easily navigate through the various options within seconds to tweak any important camera flash settings on the fly mid-shoot as you need.

Additionally, the 24-105mm auto or manual zooming functionality has been overhauled to be seamless too.

Additionally, you can also use your TT350F as a slave unit if you pick up the Godox X1T-F controlling unit.
