All in all the Nikon D50 is an excellent digital SLR camera. Ideal for those who have outgrown their compact camera or for those who want to take their first steps into digital photography. The Nikon D50 may be a so-called entry level model; nevertheless it offers the user almost everything. Nikon offers a model of the lowest priced segment; this will make us meet more Nikons in the street. The Nikon D70 already did very well, and the D50 will do equally well or even better!
So is everything in order? No, not completely. The viewfinder is rather small and there is no possibility for placing an extra handgrip underneath the camera. Also if you work with RAW you’d like to have a larger buffer and maybe also a higher frame speed. It would also have been nice if for example the light metering would have been directly accessible without having to dig into the menu. However, these are no serious arguments. And to be honest I didn’t expect to meet any serious ones either.
