Hello, I’m new here. My name is Tom.
I have been doing photography off and on since I was 10 and I am 85 now. Back when digital photography was beginning my friend talked me into abandoning all my Nikon film DSLRs and my darkroom to switch to digital. This was a big upheaval for me then. My first and still digital DSLRs are Nikons D100 & 200. My lenses are a Tamron 28-200 mm and a Nikor AF-S ED 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6GIF. I used these cameras mostly for my work from which I am retired. I also have a Canon Power Shot SD850 IS which has been great for traveling Europe and other places since it fits in the palm of my hand and any pocket. I want to come out of my cave and move forward into the multiple mega pixel world. I am considering the Nikon D5600 with a 2 lens kit. It is on sale from Nikon (probably other places also). My question, if anyone has made it this far, is: does anyone own or have experience with this camera and deem this a proper upgrade for me from what I currently own. I want to begin again taking images of the word, as in my days of old, other than my grandchildren. Would appreciate any points or suggestions. Thank you for your indulgence.

Hello Tom;
Welcome to the forum. I have a D200 and love it. As far as getting a D5600, Go for it dude. Why not.
I also have a powershot and a cheap-ass nikon L310 for video's. The only draw back to the D200 is lack if video but I love it. The 5600 should be a nice companion to your D200, I do hope you keep it.
I recently was in Micro Center in Dallas and was looking at a DELL high resolution monitor, 3840x2160. It happened to be connected to a computer on the internet and so I went to my google drive and started looking at some shots I took in March of the Whooping cranes at the Texas wildlife reserve. DAMMMMM !!!!!!!!!!! was I surprised !
The detail was very very sharp. I was asking myself, 'did I take these with my camera?' I gotta get me one of these monitors. Anyway, welcome aboard.

Thanks to all of you for the information. I am now optimistic about the possibility of seeing the images. My son passed away in 2016. He was hit by a drunk driver. My son was on his motorcycle that night, as usual. These images hold an emotional component for our family. I'm going to find a local place to get them processed, a few at a time. 17 rolls sounds expensive. Thank you once again.


My deepest sympathies to your brother that must be a hard loss. See if you can find a photo lab they can process the rolls in a very professional manner and try to extract the best pictures obtainable hopefully those rolls of film Are in good shape And you should get some nice pictures hopefully keep us all posted please

This one was a challenge due to the string on the bow and a few other areas.


Nice capture.

I know that most of what's posted here are pictures with verses or things that are "feel good" but I read this and thought it was important to remember so here it is.

The news is filled with stories of the world expressing its hatred toward the faith and its express intention to take away the liberties and freedoms of anyone who will not bow the knee to Caesar (in our day, celebrate homosexuality, profane marriage, admit that women are men and men are women, abuse children, and, of course, murder children in the womb). This is our culture's way of demanding that pinch of incense upon the altar. This is our "mark of the beast," to be sure: obsequious obedience to Caesar's moral rebellion against God's law.

It is easy to become angry, and bitter. But we must remember: the world's hatred of God's law, resulting in their hatred toward we who represent that law (as we live in submission to the Lordship of Christ), is truly nothing more than the hatred of the rebel creature against the sovereign Creator. The wisdom writer said it long ago:

Whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from Yahweh;
But the one who fails to find me destroys himself;
All who hate me love death.
(Proverbs 8:35-36)

Were it not for the grace of God, we too would be vomiting forth our hatred of His ways to our own destruction. Always remember you have been graciously rescued before your righteous indignation carries you across the line into sin.

~Dr. James White.

Hello, I just joined the forum. I have had a lifelong fascination with photography and just recently in the last year made the transition from film over to digital. I have 3 cameras--all Canons--a T6, a 20d, and a 30d. I have a 18-55mm and 55-250mm kit lens, and a couple of Sigma zoom lens , a 18-125mm and a 24-200mm, and a Tamron 24-200mm, and a 100-400mm Vivitar. The T6 kit was purchased new and everything else has been purchased used. I am on a limited budget, hopefully soon I will be able to get a prime lens or two, but I am a newbie to digital and I am trying to learn and get things in my brain so I can get off of the "green button." Probably my biggest hindrance is my ability to remember how to adjust and set up my cameras manually at the moment. I am sorry for being longwinded in my post, but I am excited about my new to me equipment. At the moment I don't have a way to download my images as my computer doesn't have enough room for them, so I have to address this issue, and I have got to decide on a editing program, so I am working through these things as quickly as I can. I look forward to reading and learning as I embark on the digital journey. Thanks for the invite and allowing me to join. I live in central North Carolina.

If you are zooming in to edit, then all you need is a monitor that displays the resolution of the crop to which you zoom. If you have a 1920x1080 display and a photo of 3872x2592 then zoom into a secion of the photo that is 1000x800 you have plenty of resolution for that edit.


Thank you, I do have two monitors, an ISP and STD with this display. I will try this out,
Thank you again,
