Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
My CoolPix 5700 is a few years old. Never had much need for the flash, sometimes I'd get the flashing SB red circle, but usually just changed to another user profile and forgot about it.
After being given the responsibility of taking a friends wedding shots, an indoor flash would be useful I thought. After buying a SB-50DX speedlight, I found that taking pics with the flash wouldn't work no matter what was tried.
The flash unit could be fired itself with the test button so I knew that worked, but it would not work with the camera at all.
In this thread Nikon's response was"It is unfortunate to hear of so many incidents involving this similar fault, however, as I stated previously, this is not a know fault and at this time Nikon is not performing repairs free of charge." Well it's unfortunate that I will be probably taking my business elsewhere, maybe to Canon. I have just over a week to sort something out for the wedding.
