Hi there, I hope you all are having a good day or night. To get right to the point I have been trying to read lots of articles, reviews and forum posts considering my first camera purchase. Actually it's something I have been considering for years. I've been relying on my smartphone/note to take pictures of plants and animals.... I enjoy it allot but would like to upgrade from that. I have somewhat settled on the Nikon D5600 as being the best fit at what I am willing to pay (as it is I will be making payments) but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. Just curious if I'm headed in the right direction or if I'm missing smarter options that might be more obvious as experience is gained. Thanks in advance for sharing your opinion.
