I'm new to photography and got a Kodak EasyShare P880 while in Iraq. I've always wanted to do some photography but never had a chance to till now. Some of the features on the camera I'm still trying to figure out. Does anyone know how to get the best possible pictures? I've been advised by a girl I'm working with, to get an SLR. I don't know the difference between an SLR and a Digital? There is a slot for a zoom flash but I'm not sure what a zoom flash is for. It already has a built in flash that pops up when you need it. I'm wondering if I should get a zoom lense.
