Hi guys,
I have been thinking to buy my first DSLR camera and to start some serious work with stock business, but for now I have limited buget. What do you think about Nikon D3300 with AF 18-105 lense for start? What can you tell me about camera, since I have never tried to take a picture with it? How does it work inside the house (light just from lightbulb), or in lower light (cloudy weather) outside? And what kind of pictures are best with it and are the worst?
Or if you are not familiar with it, what would be your best choice in that price range?

Thanks in advance.

The price isn't but you really have to learn how to use light better- tons of good videos out there - many for free.

Yes, that's fine and a good starting camera + body to learn. I started off back in the day with a Nikon D70 and upgraded to D3100, then D7000 and now I have a D800. More important than the body, imo, are the lenses.

Eventually, you'd be looking at getting some prime lenses (35mm, 50mm) and perhaps something with a wider aperture like 24-70 f2.8 or 70-200 f2.8 (it's expensive though). Depends on what you want to do and specialise in...it's important to find a niche quickly and focus on that to make it in this game.

Pretty much anything. At 18mm you can capture wide angle landscapes. At 105mm you can capture close ups for sports and that's a better range for portraits...even a bit macro. The problem is that it's not a wide aperture so you may struggle in dark situations and having to bump the ISO...the body is already limited so it should produce a lot of noise.

Good luck

I think it is a good camera. I have Nikon D3100. A lot depends of lenses and what do you want. You can read this article about cameras and lenses to start.

I still am using the 3200 ... luckily for me though I broke both of my kit lenses and upgraded to a 50mm and a 70-300. Next purchase will be something short and wide for panoramas and the VR things ... Well, that's a lie. Next purchase will be some * lights.

Inside, you're going to be fairly limited I think. Grain jumps rapidly between 1600 and 3200 ISO (It even goes up to 6400 but, eek) you'll find the photos quite noisy in dark areas. If you've got decent bulbs in though or even a good lamp you can generally pull it off. Especially if shooting Raw. 18-100 is probably a decent starting lens.

My real question, is why the 3300? I think you could save a few bucks and get another lens or something if you go with the 3100 or 3200. :/

Actually I was thinking about D3100 or D3200 but I haven't runed where I could by them new. Is there any big diference betwen them and D3300 in photo quality?
