Im saving fora T1i so I can further my love of photography.

I will be a beginner so I will use it to learn and get better.

But Im new to DSLRs so I need some help.

I need to know what accessories to get with it.

So far I just know to get:

T1i - $900
Memory Card - $40


What else should I get?

You are getting a body, lens, and memory card. Start from there and see what your needs are as they come up. If you are missing something it will become fairly obvious as you go.

Here's the accessories I started gathering after my 40D purchase, up do my 5D MkII (all of them will come in handy sooner or later for you, and most I'd consider a necessity):

Oh, and this can be a very expensive.. but rewarding! hobby...

-Several Memory Cards
-Extra battery
-Good bag(s) depending on your needs
-Solid Tripod/Head
-Flash
-UV Filters
-CPL
-Dust/rocket blower thingy
-Nikon Lens Pen (I LOVE this)

That's the basic stuff I always carry around with me when I"m shooting, besides maybe tripod.

What would you like to photograph? The answer will dictate what accessories to buy.

If you want to photograph children, you might want a different lens and a flash. If you want to photograph birds, a telephoto or long zoom lens. Flowers, a macro lens.

Tell us what you like to shoot, or better yet, show is what you have shot in the past.

how serious do you plan on getting into this hobby? if you think that this could consume you, then you might as well save up for the best accessories (rather than buying cheap ones and having to sell them when you upgrade)!


go full frame!

I mostly would like to do nature stuff, but I could see myself photographing everything.

Since when did Costco start selling Canon T1i camera bodies?

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
