Hi Bunny,
You need the FL-BK01 bracket and also the FL-CB02 cable to keep all functions (TTL). The cable provide the link from the E-20ís hot shoe to the bracket

Hyun,
Yes, but many people (including me) prefer having the flash on a bracket for various reasons:
- help red eye problem,
- much better balance of the camera/flash ensemble (that's my reason )
- ... also, look cooler with a bracket potato smasher style flash :mrgreen:
- more stable on a tripod or monopod
