Fuji S5000 Assessories

I recieved a FUJI S5000 this past christmas and I think it's great. However it only has a built in flash. Is there any external flash systems that I can hook up to my camera for that extra flash boost, and if so is it worth it. Also are filters worth buting, or just add the effect in PS7?

  The Fuji S5000 does not have a hot shoe for mounting an accessory flash. You can use other flashes that act as "slaves" (fire when the built-in flash fires), but you'll have to manually adjust flash exposure when using them (the camera's meter cannot control their output like it can the built-in).

See Vivitar DF200 Digital Flash is one example that can be used with S5000, though I have no experience with it and this should not be construed as a recommendation.
