At A Glance

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

Manufacturer’s Description

The D50 is the ideal introduction to Digital SLR photography, with a wide range of Automatic features to make great photographs easily. Whatever you shoot there is a Digital Vari Program that sets up the camera for the best exposure. Just select the mode dial and the D50 takes care of the rest. It's small, it's light, it fits snugly in your hands and delivers clear, sharp results with extra possibilities of control and creativity.
