Nikon D3000 with 18-55mm lens

$375.00 to $556.00



The D3000 is compatible with a broad range of world-famous Nikkor lenses and includes the versatile 3x, 18-55mm Zoom-Nikkor with Silent-Wave Motor autofocusing and Nikon VR image stabilization to combat picture blur caused by camera shake for sharper handheld pictures. Special moments are captured faithfully at up to 3 frames-per-second and displayed on a bright, 3-inch LCD monitor. The D3000's split-second shutter response eliminates the annoyance of shutter lag. To further simplify picture-taking in special situations such as portraits, sports, landscapes, and more, the D3000 features icon-identified Scene Modes that deliver beautiful results automatically in otherwise complex situations.Minimize

Canon EOS 50D Body Only

Sony Alpha 230 Digital SLR with 18-55 and 55-200


If you want to take your pictures from snapshots to memorable images, then let a Sony α DSLR put better pictures at your fingertips. A DSLR's responsiveness, versatility and image quality helps capture those moments that other cameras often miss.


Panasonic DMC-GH1 with 14-140mm lens


The LUMIX GH1 features the Live View Finder system which enables something that simply is not possible with conventional DSLR cameras – the ability to preview the effects of camera settings (e.g., exposure, aperture, shutter speed) before taking the photo. This helps take the guesswork out of the camera setting process and helps users ensure that every photo they capture comes out exactly as they envisioned.Minimize
