Right now I don't even own a camera, but I really want to get one for 2 reasons. 1. To take pictures of my friends and family while we're out having fun, so I need something fairly portable. 2. I have a real interest in nature photography and I would like to try to start taking some shots and learning about everything that's involved. I've been doing research into photography for a few months now for work and I've gotta say I'm still super confused. I think the best way for me to understand is to just go out and start playing around with different things. So I need a camera, and I've had my eye on the Canon SD600, but while I was looking up prices on amazon I came across this package for the Canon A630: Canon PowerShot A630 8.0MP Digital Camera with All Manufacture's Supplied Accessories, Opteka .45x High Definition² Professional Wide Angle Lens, Opteka 2.2x High Definition² Professional Telephoto Lens, Opteka High Definition² 3 Piece Filter Kit - UV, Polarizing and Fluorescent Filter, and Lens / Filter Adapter, Kingston 2GB Secure Digital (SD) Card, Merkury Ultra High Speed Card Reader / Writer, and ImageRecall CD - Digital Image Recovery Software, Opteka 90min AC/DC Charger with Four AA 2700mAh Rechargeable Batteries, LCD Screen Protectors, and Opteka Tabletop Tripod, Opteka 5 Piece Pro Camera & Lens Cleaning Kit, 53" Deluxe Video/Camera Tripod, and Canon PSC-65 Deluxe Soft Case The link to the page is: [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Canon-PowerShot-Megapixel-Digital-Accessory/dp/tech-data/B000IZSP3G/ref=de_a_smtd/103-4777625-5179033[/ame] I'm really just wondering about the extra lenses (or lens adapters?) and filters, what they'd typically be used for and if they'd help me while I was learning about all this stuff. Or if I'd just be better off going for the cheaper, smaller SD600 and playing around with the different features and then later (when I have more money) getting a good DSLR.
