I just got mine. AND.. A brand new Nikon CoolPix 5000 ! (camera given to me by my wife as an early Christmas present) I still haven't read the manuals yet and it's way more complex than my Nikon CoolPix 950, so please forgive the color balance issues: [img]web-comm.com/ar15/ar15knives.jpg[/img]

[img]www.nikon-image.com/eng/PDF/images/e5000_photo.jpg[/img] I LOVE the 5000 !!!! I started off with a Nikon CoolPix 950 and used it religiously for about 2 years. I was very satisfied with the picture quality and the overall ease of use. The 5000 ROCKS! The pics are definitely better than the 950 and the features are unbelievable. I have always owned Nikon cameras and their digital cams are just as great as their conventional film cameras. (I have an F, F1, N8008 -- soon to all be retired to my friends -- I am going totally digital !!) It's not really too expensive: ($1095 for the camera / $79 for second lithium ion battery and charger kit / $615 for 3 of the 256mb compact flash memory cards) I have just started playing, but here are some of the cool features: - much more ergonomic design than prior Nikon models - comes with stand-alone rapid battery charger and 1 lithium ion battery (2 hours to charge - operates camera for 100 minutes on a charge) - uses 2cr5 conventional battery as well. (in case you are away from AC power -- just carry a few of these disposable batteries) - takes INCREDIBLE pics. 5 megapixel (each "fine" setting photo is 1.5-2.0mb) - built-in microphone and speaker (for "movies") - can take a 1 minute quicktime movie ! (pretty cool) - lcd display panel articulates to almost any position. (even can face forward so the subject can see the image as they are being photographed) - individual user settings --> You can totally configure all settings-- and there are MANY settings! -- and save them in their "profile" (holds 2 user profiles in non-volatile memory) - hotshoe attachment for any of the Nikon Speedlights. - built-in flash w/ red-eye reduction. (works differently than the other coolpix cams -- it pulses the strobe at a low level before firing) The only problem with it is that it is very hard to find ! (and the fact that you actually have to read the manual to figure out all of the manual settings! -- but it does work quite well as a "point and shoot" when set on auto)

LEO blue = SRT OD green = MIL [url]http://www.crkt.com/m16lemil.html[/url]
Link Posted: 12/21/2001 11:11:22 PM EDT
The Blue and the OD are actually two different model numbers, the M16-14LE and M16-14M. So the OD ones will say MIL, and the blue ones will say SRT.. Even though I haven't figured out what that stands for yet.

Yep! Mine was a little on the stiff side too. Did you try a drop of CLP? per CRKT's instructions? Helped mine out tremendously!

Hmm, the only paper in the box was a catalog, and the 1* explanation. No instructions. [>:/]

Yeah, it's in the little catalog, in the Do's and Don't section, strangely enough on the backside of the M16 Family page.
