Finally, I got my own DSLR camera,it’s a new Nikon D3000 and I got it for the lowest price. An entry level camera just like D40 and D60, these are the models that I really wanted to buy. Unfortunately there were no stock available and they told me that those are already phased out. So I ended up with the D3000. Are you wondering where I bought it? You’re right! I got it from Hidalgo St., Quiapo, Manila, the photographer’s haven for cheap cameras and photo gears. Here’s what I got from the kit:

The contents of the box:

  • D3000 body
  • 18-55mm lens
  • EN-L9a battery
  • Battery charger
  • Camera neck strap
  • USB cable
  • CD-ROM with NX2 trial version

These are the FREE items I got as they said:

  • 4Gb SD card
  • Camera bag with a Nikon name on it.

Other items that I think are really needed for protecting the camera from dust and scratches:

  • LCD protector
  • UV filter

There’s a big difference with the prices, Nikon D3000 at Hidalgo costs 26k pesos while you can find it in the malls at 32k pesos. But there are a lot of tradeoffs when you buy at Hidalgo. It’s a long list and maybe I have to make another post for that.  Now I can start shooting for my blogs which is one of the reasons I bought a camera.
