"Investments For Nikon D5000"



i just bought it not too long ago and i enjoy it alot! i bought a tripod but i plan to buy a really tall one soon

my question is about the light i want to shoot videos at night but i cant find a good light kit or a light that will mount to the tripod and camera

can anyone suggest me any websites where i can get a good LED light that will connect to the tripod and camera

or is it better to use the portable umbrella?

and also i was lookin at the
Nikon 55mm - 200mm f/4-5.6G
Nikon Dx 55-200mm lens

i just want to know which one would be a better buy. i enjoy the stock lens (18-55) but need something better

thank you for the help!

What do you want to be "better" about your lens? The 18-55mm is a great lens IMO. What do you want to do with it that you can't do with the 18-55? I have the 55-200mm 4-5.6mm. It has been a great lens for me. If all you need is more zoom than your stock lens gives you then it's a great lens. It's not amazing in low light but I have used mine to good effect at concerts and a baby dedication in a dark church. The backgrounds in the church and some of the concert pics required noise reduction in post processing.
