Some brands offer great deals on kit lenses, but it might be worth it to upgrade. All camera models come with its own battery, but if you are always traveling, you might want to consider purchasing a spare. Many camera models also come with their own memory cards, but most of them are limited when it comes to size. You will probably want to purchase at least 1 gigabyte card. Your camera will cost you, so make sure that you also invest in a bag that will protect it adequately.
Brand is somewhat more crucial when you are purchasing a DSLR compared to a compact camera because once you begin acquiring lenses and accessories, it will be quite expensive to make the switch. However, that does not mean that one brand is better than the other. Each brand makes great cameras, with every single one constantly innovating to stay on top of their game. Choose a camera based on its features, not the brand. Next, before you buy, explore the different lenses and accessories that are available.
