Hi All,
Very recently entered the DSLR zone with EOS 400D (have standard lenses 18-55 and 55-200). Need your advice on buying:

1. Cleaning Kit - most important - which brand should I go for and the cost.
2. Polarizer - what diameter
3. External Flash - what type is good for avg shooting

Appreciate very much if you can guide me through.

Thanks!

think just get a normal cleaning kit with a blower will do just fine
most importantly is to get the dry cabinet to store your 400D

is your drybox the electronic one? or just a air-tight box.

also, the cleaning kit, just buy a microfibre cloth and a giottos rocket blower.

for the polarizer, one of your lens is a 58mm diameter whilst the other is 52mm. the 52mm CPL will be cheaper, but may cause problems on your ef-s 18-55mm.

I don't recommend getting a CPL because your lenses' front barrels all rotate IIRC, making usage of a CPL difficult.
