You will need a memory card — and to just get started, that's basically it. Sometimes a memory card is included in a camera store bundle, but such bundles are usually a bad deal (see Does it make sense getting any of these "extra" lens packages?). As far as I know, a memory card is never included with an interchangeable lens camera or official ...

Because it would add expense and complexity, and most consumers don't request it.

The single best thing you can get after a body, lens and cards is a nice bag. The best camera in the world is no use to anyone on a shelf at home. Steer clear of any that come free with the camera, they're universally ugly and poorly made. Go to some shops and have a play with what's there. Bags are quite a personal item, but you're looking for something ...

What you'll need depends on what/how you plan to shoot, so waiting until you've had the camera for a while before thinking about buying more stuff for it is probably worth trying. But the things every digital shooter wants in addition to a body/lens or kit to get started is a relatively short list: a computer of some kind. Because, otherwise, how are you ...

By "internal automatic eyepiece cover" I assume you mean something to block the light instead of something to protect the eyepiece glass from scratches. There are no cameras with an "Automatic Eyepiece Cover" but some Pro level cameras have a manual eyepiece shutter to block off light during long exposures when your eye is not covering the viewfinder. ...

Unfortunately most (if not all) DSLRs have no onboard memory so your out of luck the shutter clicked but no photo was actually taken or saved anywhere

What you'll need will depend on what you want to shoot. For portraits, you're gonna need ways to control the light. Just about everything you'll need to get started on lighting can be found on Strobist. Landscapes can be improved with a good tripod. Get one that's good and stable because you don't want it falling down and breaking your camera. You'll also ...

You don't need anything beyond a lens, body, and a memory card/film. If you are looking to buy more things, look beyond equipment and invest in learning the craft. Books, in person training, and 1 on 1 sessions with more experienced photographers are well worth the price.

If you consider buying a tripod as many have suggested here, then you should also consider buying a wireless remote control for your camera. The tripod is used to eliminate camera movement to allow for long exposure shots or to allow images to be aligned more accurately for doing image processing involving multiple images (e.g. making HDR pictures or doing ...

Here are some suggestions (with sample price from Amazon; look to B&H Photo, as well). You certainly will need memory card(s), and probably a spare battery or two. You also should get a case or protective bag, if you do not have one. A tripod is useful for close-ups, night photography and studio work. There are many types, from inexpensive ones that ...

You can get some general figures in the 60–80% range by looking up transmission rates of materials like frosted glass. DSLRs often use laser-etched glass that may have higher transmission. But a camera is not like a set of binoculars. A DSLR lens focuses light onto the focusing screen (when the reflex mirror is down), and the viewfinder flips the image ...

This screen also known as a "ground glass screen" (though it's not always made of glass) has a very fine etched pattern on one side of it to facilitate the way it scatters light. Cleaning the side of it with this surface is not practical as it's likely to both deposit small particles into this etched surface and possibly damage the etched surface (think ...

For me, when you go on a safari is really not the time to a) learn a brand new type of camera, b) learn all about wildlife photography technique and field craft, and c) gain supertelephoto photography skillz. That's a lot of knowledge to gain that most of us get only from years of experience. Wildlife photography, like sports photography, is one of the ...
