Accesory wish list

I'm trying to put together a photographic 'wish list' and would be really grateful for a bit of help choosing brands/models, best places to buy etc. and also some useful ideas.

Tight budget is a serious consideration, as well as my own technical illiteracy.

Everything needs to go with an E-30. I rarely use RAW. I have kit lenses + 70-300mm and 25mm (rarely used); tripod and monopod + Gitzo offset ball head; reflector (rarely used).

Here's the list so far:-
  • First a flash gun. I've read that the FL36R might not be the best option, because it doesn't have enough batteries, but are there similarly priced alternatives that are quicker?
  • A means of converting the flash gun to a ring flash.
  • A remote IR trigger, that will work for both camera and flash (or do they do that anyway?).
  • A light box - affordable (cheap) that's easy to pack away into a small space; to be used for assessed assignments for a course I'm doing.
  • Lightroom - is there a best place to buy a student version?
Any tips, and any other ideas, will be gratefully received.
