Attention: Photographers [Mar. 1st, 2010|02:10 pm]

I'm going to be doing a bit of economic stimulus with my tax refund this year, and am looking at purchasing a DSLR rig. I've talked to several friends (some of whom will be reading this) and have a pretty good idea what I want. At the moment, I'm looking at the following:

Nikon D90 kit w/ 18-105mm lens

Nikon SB-600 Speedlight flash

Also planning to get a second rechargeable battery, 32 Gb memory card (and USB card reader for my computer), a nice camera bag, a basic tripod, and a remote shutter trigger.

Total (before shipping) is about $1300.

Thoughts? Tips? Corrections? Recommendations? Alternatives?

Please let me know.

Awesome, thanks for the "endorsement". I'm going to probably spend a few weeks reading the manuals, and anything else I can get online.

I'll probably get a Flickr account or some such for pictures.
