Battery and Charger (DSLRs do not use standard batteries). I notice the above ad shows a battery for $150 and an AC adapter for $190.

USB cable to PC or memory card reader.

Camera software for your PC if you want to use the RAW functionality.

Memory card. Not really important in this case, as they are readily available and cheap(ish). When cameras are supplied with a memory card, it is usually too small to be much use and you have to buy additional ones anyway.

Genuine manufacturer's warranty which is either international or definitely valid in your own country.

Regards,
Craig.

I had another look at their ad.

Memory cards look expensive ($250) and a 3 year warranty for $500 ??????

i'm not going to buy the accesories from them.

Memory cards. I really like the 1gb microdrive. Allows you to shoot lots and lots of photos.

If you don't have it yet, good photo editing software. I really like Photoshop Elements. Does what you need at a decent price. (less than $100.00 USD.) (There are plenty of other choices...)

In the UK, D60 comes with a battery, mains charger, neck strap, USB cable, Photoshop Elements, Canon software, etc, etc. I heard that this was a popular scam in the States - sell the camera cheap and then charge silly prices for the essential extras - "justified" on the basis that many people already have the extras from their previous D30 (yeah, right!!!).

All of the companies selling for less than 1800usd all have HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE reviews. I have GIMP which works fairly well. How much do you think is a fair price on the 1gb. And what mode to you guys normally shoot in. JPEG, TIFF, RAW etc

thanks
Logan

A nice add on to the D60 is the extra battery hand grip. Fits two batteries and makes the camera a little nicer to hold onto, especially when you use it sideways. According to the material you should get over 1000 shots from the batteries when teamed up like this. I found it well worth the investment.

1 gig microdrives are going for about $220 on eBay. If you want compact flash, try something from Ridata. DPreview gave them a great rating, and everyone who has used them and posted in the forums seems to agree.

The D100 has a maximum write speed of about 12x, so paying for anything faster than that would be a waste of time.

I would go for 4x 256MB CF cards over a 1GB microdrive. Microdrives are mechanical and if one goes wrong, you lose all your storage capacity and images in one go.
