Well, it's official now. I am now up to my eyeballs in debt.
I took out a loan for a grand and bought the Nikon D90 (body only) from BH Photo. BH Photo is a camera super shop in NYC which has a stellar reputation.
I also got an SD card and the little external button thingy.
I was torn between getting the camera with the 18-105mm or 18-200mm lens kit. I want the second lens. It would have added $700 to the purchase price! Going a grand in debt is enough for me. After agonizing deliberation, I decided to use an old used lens until I save up enough pennies for a new lens.
As mentioned ealier, my business plan is to leech off the creative efforts of others. I simply need enough camera so that it would look like I knew what I was doing, I could then go to the Utah Photo Walking event to pass out business cards and people might link to my Salt Lake Photography directory. I don't need a kickin' lens for that.
