well for now I have decided to stick to my kodak dc290 camera, I love the pics it takes and I dont print much larger than 4X6. My question is should I get an external flash for this as some of my photos have dark backrounds indoors. Are there any other accessories I should purchase?

I don't know anyone with a dc290, only know it from reviews I read a few years back(which seemed pretty good then). I'm sure an external flash would benefit your indoor shots, as many of us dx users have seen great improvement.

You can go here and find the lens adapter for the DC290. By using the lens adapter you can add Telephoto lens wide angle lens or filters. I recomend a UV filter first.

Kiddk1,

I think your best option may be to get a small flash, which will become a remote slave using something like this product....

Quantaray - Flash Slave with Hotshoe

along with ......

Quantaray - QA-25 Universal Auto Flash

http://www.ritzcamera.com/webapp/wcs...03%3Bc13025079

Hope this helps.
