flash with the 5700

Fist, sorry for posting on different camera forums. I just like getting different answers to the same question from different people. :)

We all know that the speedlight in the Nikon Coolpix 5700 is good but not really adequate for most flash work. That is why I am going to invest in the Sunpak az5000af flash unit. I know you're screaming and asking why I don't want to spend $350 on a new Nikon SB800DX. Well...that flash is just way to advanced for the camera. The flash has red-eye but I can't used that feature with the 5700, so why would I want that. and many more things.

Here's my question, if I want to do a vertical shot with the SP (sunpack) flash, it will look alright but not very professional. What do you recommend, as in cables & frame, to use with the 57010? I know there is a stobo-frame but do you have any alternatives?

Thanks so much,
