I just splurged on an older Nikon, the D3000. I got the camera, 2 lenses, a backpack, a camera bag, 2 batteries, a bunch of cords, and a few books all for $250. I didn't want to drop too much cash on a brand new camera in case I'm not as good at photography as I think I am. I'm excited to go start taking pictures. I've been messing with some settings and it's taking me some time to figure everything out. The one thing I really want to do is take pictures of the night sky. Once I do, I'll fill this thread up with my stuff.
