"The smallest and lightest Nikon DSLR available. If you're willing to use film you could go much smaller (although not lighter, those older cameras are built like tanks) and get a Nikon FE instead. But digital is so much more convenient..."
"There's nothing wrong with the plastic fantastic that comes with the D3100. But the 35/1.8 is smaller, faster, sharper and offers more contrast and saturation.
What's the catch? The fixed focal length. But on a DX camera it gives the same angle of view which kinda sortoff mimics what we see with our own eyes--a natural view. This is by far my most used lens!"
"This tiny flash is usually laughed at and considered a toy. It is not. It can bounce, and it's powerful enough to light up an entire living room (by pointing it at the ceiling). It's also incredibly small so there's always a corner in your camera bag it can squeeze away in. A remarkable little flash that I actually use a lot."
"Yes, you can spit on your lens and then rub it with the tip of a shirt. But chances are you'll be scratching your expensive glass in the process with the grit that was already on the lens. A blower like this will remove dust and grit without even touching it."
"Love, love, love this bag. And this list fits perfectly in it with nearly no room to spare (and that's a good thing. Before you know it you're carrying around 10 pounds of extra things you don't really need)"
