Hi everyone I'm new to this forum. I actually found this site because I was looking for non-brand specific recommendations. I have been using an A-series Canon for a long time, and while it is a great camera it is really showing it's limitations in protrait/model shooting. I need something that can accomodate an external flash. I don't want to break the bank since this is really an amateur hobby of mine. I've been thinking about the Panasonic DMC-LX3 but I'm worried that the lens is too short and that the flash will bring me right into DSLR price territory, can anyone inform me if this is true? Or if you have good experience with another camera please let me know! Thanks! [EDIT] If you recommend a DSLR that is cool too, I would rather spend the money on the DLSR that I can use for many years than almost the same amount on a fixed-lens with many limitations.
