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 which was released just under fifteen months ago. Anyone who has seen or handled the D70 will immediately see a strong resemblance in the D50, it's only when you start to examine the camera in a little more detail that you notice the differences (we've detailed them below). Clearly the D50 is designed to compete with other affordable digital SLR's such as the Canon EOS 350D (Digital Rebel XT), Pentax *ist DS and Olympus E-300.

The D50 can't trigger Nikon SB-600 and SB-800 strobes or the new SB-R200 speedlights wirelessly for multiple flash setups. But if you calculate exposure yourself (or if you own a flashmeter), you can use any brand of external flash with a built-in slave sensor, or attach a slave trigger to your external strobe. The NIkon D50's flip-up flash automatically triggers all of the slaves. To minimize the built-in's effect on the scene, go to the Custom Setting menu and choose CSM 16: Flash Mode, then set the manual output level as low as 1/16 Power.

The Nikon D50 beats the D70s with the AF-A option, and even the AF modes the two have in common work differently. When you partially depress the shutter release, the Nikon D50 automatically adjusts focus according to your AF mode (see above), but it won't take a picture until the focus is sharp, a mode called "focus priority." This differs from the D70s, which uses "release priority" in AF-C mode; it will let you take a picture even if it's slightly out of focus. That may be preferable with sports and other fast-moving action, because a slightly fuzzy picture at the critical moment is still better than nothing.

The D50 is especially good for kids, sports and action compared to more expensive fixed-lens cameras. I prefer it over everything else from other makers because it's so easy to use, works fast, focuses fast, responds immediately to your inputs and the image quality is fantastic. The D50 is a far cry better than any fixed-lens camera, even the much more expensive Sony DSC-R1. Unless you really understand abstract concepts like White Balance fine tuning you'll never find anything missing from the D50. Don't let the low price fool you: it's a great camera and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between prints from a D50 compared to a $5,000 D2X. I've seen 4 x 5 foot enlargements from the D50 that look superb. The only limit to the D50's picture quality is the photographer, not the D50.

The D50 is fantastic at high ISOs, giving completely smooth and clean images at ISO 800.

Despite the Nikon D50's above-average performance at high ISOs, any digital camera will pick up random noise at ISO 800 or above. Noise is even worse with exposures longer than 1 sec, but you can minimize it with the D50's Long Exposure Noise Reduction feature. Activate it from the Shooting Menu by choosing Long Exp NR and switching it ON.
