Hi, I'm new here. I'm a photography student at Memphis College of Art. Though I've only been doing photography for about 5 months, I'm head over heels in love with it. Anyways, I'm looking to buy a new camera. I have just a (really) cheap phoenix p-5000 camera and it is not sufficient anymore. I also think that I am ready for a flash (I've never used flash before) and a macro lens (most of my photographs are close-up still life types), but I have no clue how to begin shopping around for any of these things. I've tried doing a little shopping on my own, but so far I've failed miserably (as you can already see by my previous camera). So, as far as a camera I was thinking this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/112196-GREY/Nikon_1689_FM10_Camera_Kit_with.html What type of flash coordinates with this and is good for a beginner like me, because I read up on dedicated flash vs. nondedicated and I'm confused than before? Also how do you know if a lens/flash will fit with your camera? And what type of macro lens do you suggest for me? Lastly I'm on a budget (being a college student and all) so what are some cheap places I could buy all this stuff, internet or otherwise? Thank you a lot! All help is appreciated!
