    That’s actually a really sweet beginner setup. The D3100 is 12MP, and the D3200 is 24MP.

    Not sure on the price point though. I was able to pick up a brand new D3500 from B&H, with those same lenses for $750. But there isn’t a huge difference between the 2. If I would have saw that before I might have just went and grabbed it.

    it’s a decent little beginner camera, few lenses and extra batteries. If you are having the slightest inclination of getting into the hobby I’d say go for It. Nikon, canon , Sony, all three are great brands. If you get the bug and fall in love with the hobby you’ll eventually wanna upgrade. But remember. A 100000000$ camera wont take the best picture ever. Composition ,rule of thirds, all the
    Proper techniques do. Go for it dude

    I’ve always been a nerd for pictures as far back as I can remember. I just didn’t get too into it due to the price, but I guess now is as good of a time as any!! Pretty stoked. My brother in law is a professional photographer/videographer so I have people to bounce questions off of. That dude is flying around the world all the time.

    Somewhere out there a few of my photos were published. In 2014 I did a low grade commercial for a company in Sacramento. It was total
    Shit, low budget, pulled it off with a canon d60 and magic lantern firmware. It was a shit show. I’ll did some photo work for a member here for over a year while he built his new business it was fun. Now I just rummage about doing Astro stuff since it’s super rad. I got into drones about 5 months ago too. That’s another cool fun hobby I love. I scored a free mavic 2 two weeks ago. It had crashed and i 3d printed most of the parts for repair. Gotta go test fly it now

    Now I just gotta look into processing. I already have a maxed out MacBook Pro, but of course no photo software. Maybe get subscription Lightroom, or maybe Luminar. I don't have Photoshop money.

    Prob will be your best bet. Creative cloud or whatever they call it. I have the full suite as well. Lightroom classic , I also use that AI based luminaire as well. https://youtu.be/bsk_ZfoLPJM

    Lightroom is where it's at. I have the full huge ass photoshop that I rarely use for photos, mostly because it's just too much. LR is simple yet powerful. And I'm sure you know, but make sure you shoot in raw otherwise they're all dogshit. You guys are making me itch to start shooting again.

    All this talk of photos.
    I got a photo published in the UNR Artemisia yearbook in the 76-77 year. I am not famous, but I had my 30 seconds ... :)

    I'll shamelessly plug my crap. This has been published in a few places, it's one of my favorites.

    I ditched all my prosumer camera stuff many years ago in favor of an EOS-M. I just hated lugging around that big ass camera bag and the little guy got photos nearly as high quality. But, Imho, if you’re going to spend money on pro equipment, go for the glass first.

    Alright guys, found a listing online of these uca's and need help identifying:
    [​IMG]

    seller has them listed for what would be a good price assuming they arent some cheapo ebay knockoffs, but his description is very limited. doesn't mention brand or mileage. just says 05-15 Tacoma up to 3" lift, which would fit a 3rd gen as well since UCA's are identical.

    And a quick google found these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1620913230...4pP_ueHYNOzZqpThQdy3aCdAP-e9REZIaAp3GEALw_wcB

    which look very similar and if they are those ebay cheapos, don't think it'd be worth it.

    Their cheap Fleabay knock-offs. Just save some money and get new SPC's.
