Default flash card and extra battery 5700

just bought 5700 from mwave 990.00 and want to know if non-nikon and flash cards that work on prior coolpix models will work on 5700, such as those purchased at best buy. also that non-nikon cards do not list "speed" of card which nikon cards do. Is this a big factor? I bought one from best buy that would hold about 100 pictures but would like to know if I should return it and go with nikon brand. Same Q for batteries. Also nikon states that if the is a problem and non-nikon products used will void warranty.
thanks

Any brand of compact flash card will work with the Nikon 5700, even though some brand will post the speed of the card, you probably can't notice the differences. Nikon's always put that caution notice in their manual so that they can sell the accessories, but other third party manufacurersalso bought their licenses from Nikon to manufacture camera accessories for Nikon as well. You're in good hand...cheers
