NikonNikon D50 digital camera review : Nikon definitely scored a bull's-eye with the Nikon D70 digital SLR camera. The D70 seemed to throw its biggest rival, the Canon EOS 300D, into the shade. The Canon however carried a more attractive price tag. So Nikon struck back with the introduction of the Nikon D50 digital reflex (D-SLR) last April. A digital reflex, which is more compact than the Nikon D70s, but still featuring many interesting specifications. At first glance the differences between the Nikon D70s and the D50 are small. The Nikon D50 has a somewhat slower image speed (2.5 frames per second compared with three images at the Nikon D70s), a slower maximum shutter speed and less settings for ISO values.
Nikon D50 reviewNikon D50 - The market
Nikon smartly used the in-house knowledge and packed thoroughly tried parts in a nice compact housing. It makes the Nikon D50 to the most ideal camera for the target group Nikon aims at. The Nikon D50 clearly aims at the consumer who wants the advantages of a reflex camera, but who doesn't want to be bothered with all kinds of settings. And this is a very large group of consumers, the so-called 'crowd'. The Nikon D50 is ideal for those taking the first steps into digital photography or for those who just want to take nice snapshots.

Nikon D50 - Image quality
The Nikon D50 is not a very striking camera to be honest. But why redoing everything if you have things under control anyway? The thoroughly tried and approved technique can be looked upon as a great surplus value of the Nikon D50. The user knows what he can expect from the camera. And concerning the image quality the camera is certainly not disappointing. Rather the opposite: excellent colour rendition, fine bright and no overwhelming noise. Also the auto focus proved its good service and absolutely lives up to the expectations.

Nikon D50 - Secure Digital memory card
Just like the Nikon D70s, the D50 is also equipped with a beautiful large monitor of 2 inches. And both cameras contain the same image sensor; the well-known Sony CCD which is also used in the Nikon D100. The Nikon D50 is therefore a 6 Megapixel camera with a for Nikon standard focal length of 1.5. The D50 is the first Nikon reflex camera to use a Secure Digital memory card for storing the captured images.
