Product Expert single-lens reflex cameras

The Nikon D3500 Starter Kit for novice photographers consists of a compact SLR camera, standard lens, SanDisk 32GB memory card, and LowePro Adventura camera bag. Thanks to the 18-55mm lens, you can take portrait, landscape, architecture, and street pictures, among others. Motion blur is reduced by the image stabilization in the lens. The design has a deep grip, making the camera comfortable to hold. It's easy to control the camera, since there's some distance between the buttons. The help setting will help you quickly get to know the camera. With the included memory card, you have enough room for 9,155 photos or 320 minutes of video. The bag is made of water-repellent nylon, which will keep the camera dry, even if it rains. The bag also has room for various accessories.
