    Hay first welcome to Clubsnap.

    For a start, you need a entry level cam with kit lens Eg 18-55mm and a add on flash. Best with a tele lens like Eg 55-200 with anti shake will be good. For this setup (New), it will easily cost you S$2000.

    If ypu really budget tight, go for 2nd hand at buy and sell at clubsnap...
    Hope this help...Happy buying...

    Get a DSLR body with a affordable fast zoom if your budget permits (Tamron 17-50/2.8) and a external flashgun and you should be quite set for your venture into wedding photography.

    Price list is here... pls look thru.

    And the prices are about the same as what you can get locally....

    Remember to get a external flash if you want to do events and weddings.
