First time buying an DSLR
Jun 23, 2007

Hey everyone,

This is my first time buying a DSLR. I have experience as a photographer but have never really gotten into the digital scene until now. I'm pretty set with the Nikon D40 w/ 18-35mm lens kit and SB-400 flash but I was hoping people could give me suggestions on three things:

(1) Will this filter fit/work for the standard kit lens? This is a Hoya 52mm DMC PRO1 Digital Multi-Coated UV (Ultra Violet) Filter. I've heard it doesn't degrade image quality and is quite a nice UV filter:


(2) Will this bag be sufficient for carrying my lens, body, flash, and any other small misc. accessories:


(3) I'm looking for a cheap tripod for travelling. I'm not looking to spend more than $40. I've read that you should just go out and get a nice tripod. However, since I'm new to the scene, I have no idea what to look for. Since I'm not going to be using the travel tripod much, I'd prefer a cheap one!

Thanks for the help!
