If you are looking to get into the D-SLR world but find it too expensive, then you may not know the value that awaits you. We are taking a look at the Nikon D50 6.1 megapixel camera, and given the pricerange, it packs a serious punch.

You can read the full review here and discuss it here!

Default loving the Nikon D50

Hi there Rob, a nce review you have here on the internet. You should dig in into the menu of the Nikon D50. It is not complicated but gives you ways to optimize the result.

I bought one used on a bid site and i am still very happy with it i paid only 199 euro on a saking price of 250,00 so the rebate was almost 20%!

indeed this fantastic piece of micro electronics is a very great camera . The best is the ISO performnce even at 1600 iso very little noise and when you wash the image through a noise filter it is perfect .

the handeling of the camera is great , it is a fast one indeed and it is reliable (mine has over 10.000 imges taken wen i bought it and still it is as new)

i don;t believe that black is the issue as you can see here


this is my company car of mine employer ..

nice reivew eventhough

Hm, that's an old review. (BTW, link back to it doesn't work, the # of MP's is off by 1)

As far as black photography goes, the results are going to depend on if it is indoor or outdoor lighting almost every time. Or at least that's what I've read and has proven true with my rather poor camera. Outdoor lighting is able to give the full range and it really shows with black objects in photos.

Although I have to say that car looks more gray than black to me? It's still a nice image though.

Hi D50freak:

Yeah, this review is a bit old, so I can't even recall my thoughts on that camera. It's been superseded by other models since, as well, so things are ever-improving. Generally, lesser-expensive D-SLRs aren't usually going to have the richest colors available, and the D50 (and even my D80) are no exception. It comes with the territory of cheaper sensors.

In that image though, I'd have to agree with Kougar... the car doesn't look pure black at all, but I'm doubting it is in person either. To me, it looks more like a graphite gray. Also, the blur to the side of the photo suggests that the shutter speed was slowed-down for this shot, and it probably shouldn't have been. There's no need for that on a bright day unless you were going for a certain effect, but again, I'm doubting you were.
