I am all excited that I found Moose's page and I am getting all packed up with my D3100. I purchased 2 cheat sheets already but I need a tripod. I want to know what you friends recommend for me. I am new to this and want to get all the gear needed little by little. I appreciate your help and can't wait to start using my camera. I bought it in 2011 and I'm barely getting ready to really put it to use. Shame on me for not using it before, but thanks to Moose, he really inspired me to get it out.
