K10D for real estate photos

I bought my K10D new when it first came out and as an amateur photographer it is still way more camera than I deserve. I still shoot in manual because the manual settings just make my head spin. I would like to purchase the needed equipment to be able to use my camera to create nice pics for my real estate business (I am an agent). I currently hire professionals for most shoots, and on the less expensive homes I would like to be able to keep the budget down and take my own shots.

Can you recommend:

  • a wide angle lens suitable for real estate photography; commonly referred to as ultra-wide (as inexpensive as possible please)
  • a flash appropriate for interior shots of homes
  • a decent tripod
Thanks for your input.

Welcome to PF.

I suspect the 15 or 21 would be wide enough and create limited distortion. Anything wider might. Do you have the 18-55? Some test shots around your home might give you a feel for focal lentgh.

Can't help with the flash as I don't use them much.

For the tripod, some decent and portable. Maybe the Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod Legs Kit w/ 498RC2 Midi Ball Head B&H
