Do you have any 50mm lenses for any film SLRs? If so, you'd be able to adapt them to a DSLR without having to buy a proper macro lens. And as said before, you don't need an amazing DSLR to get good results. Locally I can find Canon T2i and T3i bodies for ~$150. You'll need macro extension tubes ($15), an SD card of some sort (even 4gb will be fine), a tripod, a way to backlight film (I use an old first-gen iPad) and a way to flatten film (I usev Tutuapp 9Apps Showbox the negative holders from my enlarger).
