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...:thumbsup:
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.
