I just bought a 8700 and need help on what speedlight would be the best fit for this camera.I'm doing nothing special with it ,just dont care for the internal flash on this camera.I cant seem to get much range. Any suggestions would be a great help.

How about an Nikon flash?

Using the ISO hotshoe the Coolpix 8700 can be fitted with an external speedlight such as the Nikon SB-50DX or SB-80DX, SB-28DX, SB-28, 27, 26, 25, 24, 23, or 22s can also be used. The built-in Speedlight can be cancelled when using an external flash or used in tandem. (When using an external flash the internal flash must be "popped up" because the flash sensor is on the flash arm.)

The camera and SB-50DX or SB-80DX can also work together without a sync cable. These flashes have an integrated slave-sensor that works with the Coolpix 8700 (and other Nikon cameras). The range of the TTL wireless flash operation is approx. 7m (23 ft.) and there is no limit to the number of flashes that can be used
