Excellent camera, until now I don't find any problems with the Nikon D50, I highly recommend this digital camera. Price, performance, ergonomics and most important, very good photos. Sometimes light overexposed, but nothing that you can't handle with your computer.

Just bought the Nikon D50 digital SLR camera and love it. It is very easy to use and takes excellent photos. I had an Olympus C8080 which always seemed to get blurred photos, this Nikon D50 doesn't do that. I would highly recommend this digital camera to buy.

I've owned the Nikon D50 for about 6 months and I'm extremely happy with it. I owned a Kodak point and shoot for about 4 years prior to my purchase and loved the ease of use. I was satisfied with the camera, but when the battery life of the Kodak started to fade I started looking for a better camera. I asked a photographer what was a good camera and she recommended the Nikon D50. I was shocked at the price tag at first, but when I started using the camera I was amazed at the results. Crisp clear images I thought were not possible with a digital camera. I'm already thinking about buying the Nikon D80 because I'm so happy with this DSLR camera.

After 30+ years with 35mm film SLRs, the D-50 is my second digital camera. My first, an Olympus C-720 is technically a DSLR, but the time lag and lack of standard features render it more like an InstaMatic. The Nikon D-50 brings the response time up to near real-time standards. The ease of adjusting ISO, WB and make the Nikon D-50 a respectable tool for capturing images. The controls are ergonomically logical. They allow easy adjustment for quickly optimizing exposure in a camera that fits the hand very naturally. The only drawback, true of all DSLRs currently on the market, is the challenge of grabbing images from moving subjects in autofocus mode ... but with practice, multi-frame exposure and good depth of field, a burst of images will do it!

I pondered for many weeks over which camera to upgrade to, having become dissatisfied with using a compact, which was slow in every respect, although producing quite reasonable photos. I think I purchased virtually every magazine on similar cameras and tried them out in different shops. When I picked up the Nikon D50 it felt perfect, it was responsive and appeared to be everything that I was looking for. Having made the purchase I am just getting to grips with it, exploring all the controls etc. I can't say I am dissappointed in any respect, it does what it says on the label to quote a phrase. I am extremely pleased with my purchase; me and the photographs I am now producing have moved light years ahead. A fantastic piece of equipment.

I just purchased the Nikon D50 digital SLR and love it, my first picture was taken out in my backyard using the macro feature. This picture is already the talk of the family. I am still trying to get thru all of the extensive features of this camera. I also have the HP Photosmart 375 photo printer and I think this is an awesome combination due to the fact that the camera is PictBridge compatible, I love printing right from the camera and not the Printer.

Exceptional! Bought the Nikon D50 on a Friday, familiarized myself and took some test snaps on Saturday, used it on Sunday to take almost 200 pics at a local dog show. Comments from those who have seen the photos vary from "breathtaking" to "where can I buy one?". Sturdy, well thought out, relatively uncomplicated for even novice photographers. Would like to see an illuminated function display and incremental ISO settings, but other than that, the Nikon D50 digital camera is the real deal.

The Nikon D50 is very nice, good, easy to use and its very interesting to learn more about reflex camera SLR for those who like to know something about this. And we shouldn't forget that brings excellent image results!

I have had my Nikon D50 digital SLR for about a week. I shot my friend's wedding with it and the pictures were amazing. This is my first digital camera and I am more than pleased with it! Great value for the money for sure! I am still working on some of the features and gadgets but in time I am sure I will master them. Awesome camera and I highly recommend it!

A good D-SLR camera. It is able to use all my old Nikon lenses and the pictures are unbelievable. Too bad there in no black and white picture mode on the Nikon D50.

The Nikon D50 is an outstanding SLR camera for the money. Feels great in my (large) hands, is well put together with ergonomic controls. An LCD cover panel would be nice. Low light / high ISO performance is quite stunning.

It's a great camera, I had a choice between the Nikon D50 and a Canon digital camera, but as soon as I picked up this baby it just felt right (if you have one you know what I mean). The pictures are great and for a novice like myself an excellent start into digital photography. The Nikkor lenses are also excellent. I have a Canon Pixma IP6600D printer and combined with this camera I get excellent results. The only problem now is I want more pixels, do I now buy the D200 or the D2X? Boys and their toys! I am so glad I chose Nikon!

I'm still a DSLR novice, having used a CP5700 for years on auto, but I am getting good shots with my new D50 on manual, and it's size is just about perfect. I love the speed, options and battery life. I'm a very happy D50 owner.

The Nikon D50 is a fantastic digital camera, super sharp images, and a very sturdy camera, unlike some cameras I've used in the past, this is the first Nikon that I've used as I use to have all Canon cameras and now I'm not going back, the photographs it produces are so professional, what an awesome bit of kit.

My camera was repaired by Nikon under warranty. (FYI, Keep calling Nikon to get updated repair info since they seem to forget about their web site) Otherwise excellent service! An Outstanding Camera. Good low-light performance where a flash would be ill-advised using Aperature priority mode. Definately requires a fast memory card for taking more than one picture at a time. I find that the camera does a good job deciding for itself the settings in AUTO mode, giving the user just enough play in Priority modes to make things interesting; though more white balance control would be nice. I recommend getting the ML-L3 remote control with this camera. Overall an outstanding camera for the money considering it initially failed during use.
