    I dont know why he gave up the hobby. He just came to me one day and said. 'do you want to take photography i want to give away my camera stuffs. ' i dont know how much all those cost but i think it should be costly. I actually gave him 700$ to him. I just dont feel right to just take it for free. i realised photography is fun actually. getting hang of it.. Got 3 lenses and one body with a huge external flash n few accesories.

    Thanks for welcoming me to the club and great encouragement..

    Sounds like X-mas, birthday and bonus day together ... ok, in detail.
    Nikkor is Nikon's brand name for lenses. That's the original one!
    Teleconverter .. well "tele" stands for something that is far away / remote. It's a converter increasing the focal length of your zoom lens. The colour plastics for the SB900 are colour gels, necessary to give the flash light a different tone. Something to do with White Balance.
    Tripod is Manfrotto - well-liked brand here among the people. The air pump is a blower, necessary to blow off dust.
    You really have a good set of equipment here for a laughable cheap price. Go and read carefully, don't use what you don't know. You have a great chance to enter the realms of light and shadow, learn well and do justice to the gear.

    And thanks for all the explanation to the items.. Never knew those equipment are so expensive. I googled it.. U guys are serious hobbyist..
    One laughing story last night was.. I tried to snap anything... On and off and on and off i tried but cant snap anything at all.. Can power on n off... I tried changing lens also... Still nothing... Got funny error on the lcd panel. I read manual and check website... Finally... Omggggggg... Guess what??
