    Hi all!
    I've been using the CP5700 for nearly a year now and am impressed by the
    overall quality I get in daylight. Like most "prosumer" models with a
    built-in flash the 5700 suffers badly when used in situations where
    available light (or lack of it!) is a consideration. I used to use SB-26's
    with my F4's and found them excellent. I have recently bought a
    used-but-pristine SB-28DX to use with the 5700 and find that the camera's
    manual is very sketchy when it comes to external flash. I would be grateful
    if anyone with knowledge of using the same camera with similar flash could
    give me the benefit of their experience.
    Please contact me at:
    Many thanks

    I am not sure what the problem you are trying to solve.

    Pages 137-139 explains how to set the camera up.

    If you need the manual for your speedlight, go to:

    and follow the instructions.

    Suggest you not use your "real E-Mail" address in messages in posting.
    Spamers harvest these and sell them.

    Post again if necessary.

    I use old SunPak flashes on my CP5000.

    The camera has a light sensor on the front, under the shutter release. Is
    the CP57000 the same? On the 5k, it simply measures light hitting the
    sensor, so it's no different than using the sensor on the flash, except
    that you don't need to set the aperature.

    It works well enough in most situations, and it's one case where the LCD
    really helps.
