My favorite new feature
No more taping over the built in flash. I can now use the CoolPix 5000 with studio lights or my SB-24's bounced into umbrellas, like I've been doing with my CoolPix 990 for the past two years. But there's one minor problem. There is a pre flash when any Nikon flash is connected to the CoolPix 5000, even through the SC-17 cord. But this time it's really a pre flash and doesn't affect the image. You can easily use scotch tape and cover the contact on the flash or the SC-17 cord that causes the pre flash.
