You bounce the flash by angling the flash head towards a reflective surface like a ceiling or wall to diffuse the light and eliminate or reduce harsh light/shadows. The Sunpak 433D performs the same as the 383 on an FZ20. Here's a link for a new one from a great seller.

Hi I have a cheat with the FZ20 without an external flash.

Probably bad for the camera, but you open the flash and get a white business card and place it flush onto the plastic below the front of the flash and secure with an elastic/rubber band (thin types does the trick).

Now depending on how much light there is in the room adjust the flash. I up the flash in darker rooms and lower it in brighter rooms.

Just a thought...
