This is the camera you need to buy. Period. I've followed Ken Rockwell for years and bought my D3100 when I had just gotten into photography. I wasn't disappointed. I'll be snagging this one for BF and could care less about the accessories. Mostly trash but the lenses and body are definitely comparable to more expensive models picture wise.

Quote from the Intro section of that link...

Dollar for dollar, the Nikon D3500 is the best camera you can buy.

The Nikon D3500 is Nikon's newest, lightest and least expensive DSLR. It's only $450 brand new, complete with a fantastic 18-55mm AF-P VR lens. As you can see at the Sample Images, this lens is all you really need: it's super sharp and does just about everything well.
This new D3500 is the same as the D3400 from two years earlier, with most of the buttons now moved to the right, which is where they belong so we can control everything with one hand. It also weighs a little less and has a little more battery life, and otherwise has the same resolution, ISO, frame rates, mono microphone, video resolutions, rear LCD, AF system, light meter, battery and everything else the same as the two-year-older D3400 it replaces — all for the same low price!
I got my D3500 at B&H. I'd also get it at Adorama, at Amazon or at Crutchfield. It includes the excellent 18-55mm lens.

He also talks about making sure you buy from a reputable place and check the box for the US designation to make sure it isn't the European version in addition to checking the warranty cards for the lenses to make sure even "brand new" boxes have matching serial numbers for the lenses. Sometimes vendors swap the lenses and repackage as 'new'.

You have the accessories, lenses, and it's a great beginners camera. If you click on the link you can also see the great reviews it has, and it also comes with an online photography class. It would be a great present.

Would this be a good gift for a college student who want to start with photography? Trying to get something for my brother this holiday.

I would wait until BF and jump on a deal for a mirrorless camera instead. It'll be more future proof.

But aren't mirrorless camera lenses more expensive?

I bought almost this same package at $450 last year with a refurb camera. The camera and lenses are great but the accessories are pretty bottom of the barrel. I'd still recommend because you can replace stuff with much higher quality gear as it breaks but don't expect pretty much any of the accessories to last through heavy use.

This is a very good deal for what it is. This is Nikon's entry level camera. However, even the more expensive ones (of the same era), mirrorless or DSLR, have the exact same sensor and processor in them. This combo can take great images.

Yes, the accessories are mostly garbage, there to attract the uninitiated. But who cares when the camera and lenses are well worth the money.

The only thing lacking in this camera is that your iPhone will shoot better video in many respects. But that's true for most DSLRs. For a stills camera, it is quite capable.Just read its review on dpreview.com.

Yes, but I would imagine that you'll be able to find a nice package deal for around $100 more. For me a package deal for a mirrorless at $500 is still much more valuable than this package deal at $400.

I was enthused to see this bundle pop up, this is the camera my daughter wants for Xmas...BUT...
What is a camera bundle WITHOUT a memory card? It's got a memory card reader, and a memory card case, but NO memory card? Even a 16GB would be able to get you started on Xmas day. But none included. Sure, I have some around, but not everybody will. On the fence now.
Memory cards are cheap, and the ones they generally bundle with these are $10 memory cards

Nikon makes an adapter for their mirrorless camera (Z6 & Z7) that allow you to use most Nikon lenses. This adapter is sometimes free.

Actually I think purchase just the camera body+a basic lens is a bett idea. Then he got to choose his own gear as he starts to need them
