Hi guys sorry for posting this newbie post,
Recently i started to read about DSLRs due to several magic it can do on photos compared to a normal camera.
Well i was going about doing my budget planning in getting a camera, so do bear with me on this.
Plans - Nikon D7000 with Kit Lens(AF-S DX 18-105 VR)/ Cannon 60D with Lens Kit, Nikon now comes free with a 18mm-50mm lens. Think probably offer has expired.
I managed to view 1 of the videos to beginner DSLR and things should be getting to kick off:
List of Items
- Camera Body + Lens
- Dry Cabinet - Usually about 5yrs warranty, not sure about market value(What does it take to hold like say 5 lens, and 2 camera body? Something which not required frequent monitoring)
- 1 X Polarized Filter, 1 X UV Filter for each lens(Prices are probably quite scary? Is there any best buy recommendation, or what do you use to balance the $ Vs quality)
- Cleaning Kit(I am not sure if the one which was provided during buying of camera is good enough, price estimate would be good.)
- Camera Upstrap(Is the one provided by Nikon good enough or it is highly recommended to get 1? Seems that upstrap easily 50+, i heard most using Op Tech or something like this)
- Camera Bag(So far i am looking at Lowepro Stealth reporter not sure which model yet. Should be can hold 1 body with lens, and another 2 lens with charger + camera flash and water bottle);
- Tripod(Although it mentioned Gitto some carbon fibre type, but i was told in the video it was the only item which never gets changed)
- LCD Screen Protector(I think it's probably a must have...)
- Camera Flash(Not recommended from Video, but it seems that many are buying it. It probably beats the one which is in built)
Start off with the basic Kit 18-105mm
Long Term will be 50mm f1.8,
then 18-200mm, (Should be one of the general lens which will be frequently used)
then 70-300mm(It's what the video says for the above 3 lens, is it considered complete? Or for beginner just 1 & 2?)
I still dun know if i will turn this hobby, but i would say that initial planning for investment sure is hefty. For basic accessories, it works out to be about close to 400 estimation. Is this the usual prices you guys get to kick start?
I guess that club snap is the best place to gather such information. Many thanks for your kind patience to guide a person wanting to try out.
