I have been asked, and agreed, to start a photography club in our middle school where I teach. The administration is very supportive and will do what it can to provide some funding for club. I need to come up with 6 dslr cameras for the students to use. I plan on getting Nikon, for many reasons but mostly because I know the system and they can use my accesories. Does anyone know of any organizations or other entities that help with this sort of thing. I know that we cannot come up with enough money to purchase them entirely on our own. Ideally 6 D40's with kit lenes would be great. I am really just fishing here so any ideas you have I am all ears. I would look into purchasing used items from cafers but I think that causes all sorts of problems on the accounting end for the school. Hoping for the best.
