Written on: 04/10/2008 by d50devil (1 review written)

The Nikon D50 is a great little dslr capable of much more than you expect at the first look. This camera has enough functions although you have to set more options in the menu.

It doesn't matter for me it does it trick, it is reliaable it is a Nikon and this brand has the power of the image at every body's hand… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/12/2007

The D50 a really good buy for a Nikon SLR! For the money, an excellent camera, easy to use, great auto features and works well manually, heavy enough to reduce much camera shake and excellent battery life. Film compartment is a bit flimsy, and camera body lacks the confidence of its sturdy metal bodied brothers and sisters… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2007 by ZachAndrews (10 reviews written)

This is a fantastic SLR for this price. I would recommend it more highly than the equivalent Canon which costs slightly more, and feels tiny in the hand. The lens that comes with it is fine at first, and there is plenty of room to expand, which you will probably want to do after a couple of months.

When spread across my whole 19" PC screen there is very little difference in quality between 6mega pixels and 2 mega pixels.
For each successive extra mega pixel captured the additional memory… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/08/2006 by andy8758 (4 reviews written)

If you are thinking of changing to DSLR then this is the camera to get. First off, the body costs less than £400 and if you buy the 18-70 lens instead of the cheap and shaky basic 17-55 lens, then you will be rewarded with outstanding photographs that will turn your photography from a hobby to semi-professional. It really is an outstanding DSLR. Everyone who sees the photos I have produced from it is astonished with the quality of the colours, the clarity of the images, and the ease of use.

Written on: 26/05/2006 by dapurveur (2 reviews written)

I gave up my faithful Minolta X-GM SLR camera some years ago in favour of going digital, at which point I ceased to enjoy my photography. As an amateur I could not justify the huge price tag that usually accompanied the digital SLR or D-SLR and had to settle for a compact.

Thanks to Nikon and the D50, I am once again enjoying photography. This is an excellent entry-level D-SLR camera that produces high quality, 6 mega-pixel images without breaking the bank. It can serve the uninitiated with… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2006 by deetyork (3 reviews written)

I bought a Nikon D50 digital SLR camera, partially because I'd seen the results from my brother's Nikon D100, and partially because I was disappointed by pictures I'd taken with My other cameras; a Nikon F401 Autofocus 35mm Film SLR, A Fuji Finepix 40i Digital compact, and a Sony P200 7.2MP digital compact.

The old Nikon 401 can produce good shots, but nowadays the instant review/delete facility of digital cameras makes getting decent photos so much easier than having to wait for results that… Read Full Review
