Nikon D50 announced

 

As expected, Nikon today introduced their D50 six megapixel CCD digital SLR, positioned as essentially a cheaper and easier to use alternative to the D70. Digital Photography Review has posted their preview of the D50 based on a pre-production version...

Image quality

 

Nikon D50

Strong performance; excellent image quality; low visual noise; simple modes for neophytes; robust burst mode.

Simplified controls sometimes clumsy to use; small viewfinder; no depth-of-field preview; only one set of custom parameters; raw-file editing/control software costs extra.

Performance and features that rival those of more expensive digital SLR cameras make the 6-megapixel Nikon D50 one of the best entry-level options.

Nikon D50 Review

 

Digital SLR's are quickly becoming the fastest moving segment of the digital camera market, this means more new digital SLR's, more competition and lower prices. The Nikon D50 is introduced as a more affordable and easier to use version of the D70...

Good resolution and detail, just slight less 'crisp' than the D70/D70s Use of default color Mode III delivers punchy vibrant colors Low noise even at high sensitivities, better than competitors Excellent image parameter control; sharpening, tone, color...

Not as crisp (per pixel sharpness) as D70/D70s Still some moire / maze artifact pattern visible (noticeably less than D70/D70s however) Kit lens performance is pretty average, corner soft, light fall-off No Kelvin white balance selection No backlight...

Unlike Canon when they produced the EOS 300D (Digital Rebel) Nikon chose not to cripple their affordable digital SLR. Instead the D50 while lacking some of the D70's features doesn't compromise performance or photographic flexibility, most important...

Nikon D50

Low price ; Easy to use

Lacks some controls of Nikon's D70s

A fine entry-level digital SLR--particularly if you own some Nikon lenses. It lacks some of the controls found on the D70s.
