comment After 2 years of amateur photo, buy a new body or a great lens?
@CarlosCampderrós - I'm messing with photography purely for fun and I got my DSLR just one year ago, I currently have a manual flash with radio triggers I borrowed from my brother and a DIY softbox I've built myself, I don't have a light stand so I use a crappy tripod or get a friend or relative to hold the flash - and without a doubt this lighting equipment makes a huge difference in the photos I can take and it's the most fun I've had with a camera accessory (way more fun than playing with a new lens)

comment Why are only certain shutter speeds or apertures available?
@SamB - my Canon 550D (an entry level model) goes from 1/2000 to 1/2500 to 1/3200 to 1/4000 - so the missing 1/3000 is specific to your brand or model of camera
