Nice pics! Certainly better than what you'd get from the phone itself.

I took advantage of the post-Christmas sales to get myself a little "birthday present" -- a new DSLR camera. It just arrived today. It's a Canon Rebel T5 EOS 1200D. It came with a 18-55mm wide-angle lens, a 75-300mm zoom lens, several filters, and a camera bag.

I'll still use my pocket digital camera for most things, but I can do a lot of cool things with this new camera that the pocket camera can't do. Like long exposures for shooting photos of stars, meteors, or lightning. The zoom lens will be useful for shooting wildlife photos, and will also give me more options for photographing my railroad. I used to do those kinds of shots with a Pentax 35mm film camera, but film and processing are getting scarce and then I have to scan the pics, so I really wanted to switch to digital.

Of course, it can shoot HD video as well as stills.

That is a great camera Ray, I used to miss my 35 MM equipment. I have an extensive collection. Now I have an extensive collection of digital'. I don't miss the 35 MM format any longer as theses new cameras do more and are producing even better results in some cases. However, I still think Koda Chrome 64 took the best photos in history of film and cameras...

Yeah, I stuck with film for a long time, finally got my first digital pocket camera in 2009. Being able to shoot as many photos as I want, getting instant results (and if necessary, reshooting), and having high rez images ready to post online without going through the scanning process, really sold me on digital. I held onto my 35mm SLR for special cases, but found myself avoiding using it.
