I just bought a Nikon Coolpix 5000.... is this a decent camera? What kind of things will I be able to do with it? What extras (lenses, etc.) do you think I might benefit having if I chose to use it outside of work and play a little?? Does anyone have any input????? I know there are alot of accessories...batteries,lenses, etc..... I'd like to learn something perhaps.

I haven't used one myself, Maggie, but a full review for it can be found here
. As far as lenses, it has a non-removable lens on it so swapping lenses won't be an option. However there are "filters" that mimic telephoto and wide angle that are probably available for it. At least that's my hunch on it.
On the plus-side, it's cool that it will work with an adapter as a retinal/anterior segment camera system. $232 vs. $10G-25G is definitely worth the investment. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
I've heard it's pretty darned good for conventional photography, too, so it looks like you have a winner there! Keep us posted on how it works out!
