Flash? So does this camera not come with any flash? I'm brand new to SLR cameras. I want a decent camera that I can learn on. This one has been suggested a few times from several different people/places. But what else do I HAVE to buy to get started? I know there are more preffered lenses out there that I can buy, but what about flash, do I need to buy one?
All the Rebels and mid-level Canons have pop-up flashes. You don't NEED to buy a flash... but you may want to at some point to avoid that washed-out living-dead look.
You don't NEED to buy anything except an SD memory card to get started. I would suggest at least a 4GB card class 4 or 6. I would also recommend having more than one card.
Suggested accessories include a memory card reader for your computer (this is much faster than trying to download photos through the camera), a spare battery (see SterlingTek.com for very good generic batteries) and a case. That's about it... for starters, at least.
