Unless you are rich, your budget is limited and the possibilities are endless. People on this forum are always ready to help you spend your money, but there will be plenty of time to do that. After the camera, lens, filter, batteries and cards, check out eBay before buying anything else new.

You're right, I don't want to jump into anything too quickly.  eBay is pretty good for equipment, though?  I just recently got into using eBay.

Excellent!  Thank you, wombat.  Huge help.

So this is what I'm thinking of ordering, am I missing anything?

Rebel t4i w/ 18-135mm f3.5-3.6 STM
50mm f1.8 II
B+W 77mm polarizer
2x UHS-1 16GB SDHC
2x batteries (whenever I find out what the t4i takes)
Lowepro toploader holster
Pearstone DUSM-1 shock mount
Pearstone VT-2100 fluid head tripod
Ikan camera stabilizer

Things holding off on for now:
Battery grip
JOBY Gorillapod

Anything vital I'm forgetting, besides an thorough education in photography?

Thank you, everyone.  I'll look into getting the 50mm f1.8, especially as cheap as it is.  I was planning on getting the 18-135mm STM zoom lens for video, too.  Thoughts on that?

A hood, great idea.  Forgot about that.

So is polarizer the same thing as a UV filter?

Too long; didn't read: what are some important/useful pieces of gear to purchase for a person who is getting their first DSLR?  Do lens filters affect video quality in any signicant way?  What is a nice hard or soft case for a DSLR body + lens?

Hi everyone, first time poster and long-time lurker of the forums here.

To keep this as short as possible...I'm going to be getting a t4i as soon as it is available.  What I'm wondering is, are there any important investments I should make for my first DSLR?  I mean besides multiple batteries and multiple SD cards.

I'm planning on getting a tripod/shoulder mount, too, as well as a battery grip and lens filter (I know nothing about lens filters)

I'm a poor college student (hence getting a Rebel and not a 5D3 or a C300  :P) going to school for video production.  I don't know a whole lot about photography, just the basics.  And I know about b&h, but I'd like to hear from some experts.

Thank you kindly for all advice...please enlighten me!  :)
