Summary: Several comments on the internet complain about the length of the cord that connects the bracket to the Coolpix 950 flash/viewfinder body. That problem must have been corrected as the cord on this unit is just fine. The 950 is a nine year-old camera that I took out of its dark hiding place for some simple family reunion pics, and I wanted to attach a Nikon Speedlight to get around the on-camera flash. This bracket, although it's only[$], is the key to the adaptation.
Summary: I already owned a Speedlight SB-28dx for use with my F100 on a Stroboframe bracket for off-camera flash. The SK-E900 enables me to use the same flash on my Coolpix 4500. It is a practical accessory for the Coolpix 900 series and 4500 digital cameras, as long as you don't mind investing in another flash or already have one. Your camera will automatically meter the light and adjust the output of both the built-in and external flash. Results are superb.
Summary: I use the bracket to connect my Coolpix 995 with my Nikon SB-27 speedlight and it works quite well. Unlike other reviewers, I like the built in flash with the Coolpix, but since I already use this flash with my Nikon SLR, I wanted to be able to use it with my digital too. It works well and the bracket includes the Multi-Flash Adapter Cord, which you might not expect for this price.
Summary: Light is one of the most important elements to capture a quality image, whether digital or film. Therefore, it is important to have an external flash. Using the external flash helps eliminate red-eye which is an issue with the Coolpix990. The bracket is set up so that you can place the flash and camera in many different positions - you are not restricted to the example Nikon shows in the illustration.
Great for flash - must have to avoid re-eye and harsh light.

Summary: This adpater enables you to put a REAL, full-sized Nikon flash on your Coolpix and get full-sized flash performance. The CoolPix has a flash trigger output dedicated for use with Nikon (or oteher brand) flashes and the bracket gives you a handle upon which you can mount both the camera and the flash. This product includes the Multi-Flash Adapter Cord for CoolPix to electronically connect the camera and flash.
Summary: If you are serious about digital photography and want excellent flash photos, this bracket is for you. That built in flash just doesn't do it. With this bracket, you can use a Nikon SB24.25,26, etc. flashes for much greater range and quality. This bracket fits great and is ver easy to hold. It makes a big difference in the quality of the photos.
