Nikon D50

Announced Apr 20, 2005 •

As far as the nikon line-up goes, the nikon D50 takes the cheese for being the most rugged, inexpensive, starter DSLR in the nikon line.

The ISO is limited to 200, 400, 800, 1600. Shooting with 200 and 400 ISO, The pictures turned out good but the higher two settings cause large amounts of digital ...

excellent make, sturdy, heavy like a dumble. Image depth and colour rendition was excellent under strobe and out doors, could have had a larger display screen and more focusing points with cross points. overall prosumer level body.

I have been shooting for about 12 months and I love this camera. I have gone back and forth in regards to upgrading to a newer body, however, i can't seem to let go. Even though it has 6.0 mp's, i do pp in Photoshop anyway and stay within my bounds for printing images. Problems: None. It has powerup every single time, its reliable and the battery life is very good.

After 3,5 years of continuous use and some 20k shutter releases, no serious problems have been encountered. I shoot exclusively RAW and do my PP in Lightroom - LR profiles do good job of imitating the JPEG settings of the camera. Works very well with nikkors and 3rd party lenses - I own a couple of Sigmas and one Tamron. Positives: - great out of camera JPEGs - low noise (for 2005 camera), great colors - excellent ergonomics - long lasting battery - instant responsiveness, shutter lag barely ...

I have had my D50 for about 4 years. I use it both for fun and occasionally for weddings, portraits, various events, etc. The image quality is excellent, up to 11X13, however I rarely push matters so far. I occasionally use the kit lens if I need the wider settings. However I mostly use my old Tokina professional series 28-70 2.8 lens and the images are wonderful. The battery life is phenomenal and the camera has performed flawlessly. Trying to shoot manually, though, is a pain. (I am an ...
