That's good kit and will get the sort of photos you want. I have an ancient Nikon D200 that's still going strong. I just have one photo tip for you, and it's a cliché - the best camera is always the one you have with you. Have fun with your camera.

The D3000 is a few years old now but still quite capable - I'd say if you were looking to buy new there's a lot in the Pentax range at the lower end of the scale. I, myself, have a Pentax K-S2 which is 'weatherproof', though has been submerged in mud/water and washed with no issue (during a review, I've not dared to try this). The K-S2 is, itself, a couple of years old now so I'm sure there are bargains around but I bought mine new with an 18-50mm lens for about £400-450 last year.

Check out mpb.com and lcegroup.co.uk as well if you're keen to get second-hand items. The Nikon 3000-range and 5000-range are very good starter cameras. If you wanted something for the keener photographer then the D7000 range are very, very good.
