A very impressive D50 gallery

http://www.pbase.com/northstar37/root

Anyone's seen this? I'm very impressed with what this guy can do with a humble camera- D50.

Lenses matter more

If i couldnever upgrade my parts, i'd take a d50 with super lenses, over a d2xs with bad lenses. D50 is far from humble

Re: Lenses matter more

Some people don't realize it's the photographer, not the camera. I've seen images I've swore were taken with a pro camera, but were actually taken with an old Powershot.

Not the camera, not the lenses, it must be ...

I see various cameras: a KonicaMinolta Z2, a KonicaMinolta Z3, a JenOptik JD (whatever that may be), a Nikon D50. I don't think it's the camera. I don't think it's the lenses. Why, it must be the photographer!

They are nice photos, many of them. Moody, gray Scotland -- no Kodachrome days. So it's not the weather, either. It must be the photographer.

Absolutely...

Photographer is still the most important part. Camera and lens can't compose or decide on capture moment for us.

Re: Not the camera, not the lenses, it must be ...

I emailed him; I was curious what lenses and software he uses with the D50. He's been using the kit lens, 18-55 and just recently purchased the 50mm 1.8. And he said he's not very technically inclined and only uses Photoshop, but not much. He uses his spot meter and pays attention to the time of day and light. Talent, for sure.

He did say he would buy the 18-200vr if he could afford it, but only managed to buy the D50 with money he made from selling photos taken with the Dimage which broke.

This person's gallery should be the standard answer to all those that spout off about the crippled D50, the junk kit lens and on and on. heck , i just answerd a poster that said d50 owners were afraid to try a better camera. Current equipment, includng that from canon and others, is wonderfull an loaded with great Picture potential . all it takes is a good eye and some talent. Wish I had both!

Sigh...

I'm embarrassed... I'm using D70 with many better lenses. But few of my pictures come even close to what he has. This clearly shows what's really important- the eyes and brain of the photographer.

OTOH, it's also inspiring to see what can be achieved with a "not-so-serious" combo of D50 and 18-55. Well... I should dwell less on this forum and go out practicing my skills more (when I could).

They both matter

The camera and the photographer BOTH matter.
