D50 4.6 5 30 30
Best All Around DSLR in Nikon Arsenal This little workhorse provides rich color and excellent details. Its simplicity makes it easy to use unlike many of the newer "beginner" models which have too many bells and whistles. Oh, that Nikon would go back do the D50s with the 24mp sensor and lose the guide modes and video. May 25, 2014
Great Camera to go from film to digtial I came from a Manual focus / exposure no battery needed to use Nikon FM2 to the D50. It was one of the only autofocus / auto exposure cameras I used, let alone owned. But I like the auto focus system on this camera To get started I set the camera to center waited metering and p program. The best part it could use the older AF lens. It made switch to digital easier and cheaper than the newer entry level cameras, May 11, 2014
D50 Work horse I received this camera a number of years ago as a gift.( I did ask for it) I had used film cameras for years beginning with a Zeiss Ikon , several Canon models and finally with the Nikon N65. This was my first DSLR and I used it for everything and I still have it. It is a fairly light weight DSLR which helps when lugging it through rough terrain or working with it for many hours. It wasn't the slickest or most expensive Nikon when I got it but it held it's own. I have since added a number of lenses and accessories to make the experience even more gratifying. The only shortfall I had was it's inability to use newer larger SD cards. But that was not a major issue as I could just swap out the filled card for a new one. This camera works and works well. I have never had any mechanical or electronic issues with it. Although I have now added a new higher tech Nikon to my collection I intend to continue using the D50 for a indefinite amount of time. One great thing is that all of my lenses and many of my accessories for the D50 will work with the new D7000 and vice versa. I have read lately comments by people who feel that Nikon's quality has fallen over the last few years. I have not seen this first hand and my past experiences with Nikon is that it is a premier line of DSLR cameras and stands second to none. December 10, 2012
Love this camera!! I purchased this camera many years ago, I love it! I have taken so many photographs of family, friends, vacations, sporting events, snow storms and even the aftermath of a hurricane!! When I first started to take photos I would leave the camera setting on AUTO now that I am more experienced I can play with the settings and still capture great shots from the Alaskan Glaciers to my sons running track. November 7, 2012
Still a great camera, considering it's age This was my first digital camera, bought it when it first came out many years ago. I still use it as my main DSLR today, although I do have a D7000 on order. I love this camera, even though it's only 6mp. I've used it for weddings, car shows, rodeos, concerts, etc, and it has never failed me. My only complaint, is the noise with ISO settings higher than 400. But considering the age of this camera, it still performs very well, and with good light, it produces great photos. I still plan on using it after I get my new camera...actually planning on converting it to an IR camera. I'll continue using this camera, until the shutter gives out.. Great camera. July 6, 2012

Answer: 
Your camera's settings can also be a factor. For example, if you are using the auto mode, you cannot change White Balance, ISO, and Optimize Image. If you are on manual mode, you can change them.

Answer: 
depends on the lens you're using (if it has no AF, no af options are allowed; if it has no cpu, light metering and distance info is out), also, some options become unavailable when you don't connect the right cables and/or your battery level is low.

Answer: 
Welcome to the club. I'm constantly losing my lens cap. I'm surprised that I have not been given a new nick name as a result.

There might be a size stamped on the barrel of your lens. If not, take your lens to a camera store or an electronic store and see if you can find somebody there who knows the merchandise. My 28-80mm lens uses a 58mm filter and my 18-55mm lens uses a 52mm filter. Your lens is probably one of those.

Answer: 
I'm interpreting Jessica's question differently than Anthony.

Go to your menu and scroll down to the pencil tool. "05 Image Review" should be on. Otherwise, you probably will not see the picture that you just took.

That can be a good thing if you're photography fussy people who want to see every picture and demand that you delete them because they don't look good enough.

Pictures don't show up in the viewfinder, because it isn't a monitor - it's simply as if you're looking through a lens like a magnifying glass.

I disagree with Joe. I've been using 2GB cards for five years. Since January 2009 I've taken over 50,000 photos on 2GB cards. Of course I'm taking a chance, but I have very high confidence in Nikon quality of equipment.

Answer: 
There are lots of issues surrounding this question. Let me simply list the facts, and I think it will allow you to see the big picture:

Background:

CLS is a flash system developed for digital SLR cameras that may or may not include wireless capabilities, depending on the equipment. CLS is not compatible with any film TTL camera systems. The primary mode that CLS supports is the iTTL mode that was developed specifically for digital cameras. The older TTL mode was used on Speedlights that were sold for film cameras.

Facts:

* The D50 is a CLS compatible camera, but it does not have a built-in Commander, so it cannot control CLS speedlights wirelessly. It can only operate CLS flashes in its hot shoe or with a flash cable (details below). The D50 does not have a PC Sync output.

* An SC-28 or SC-29 is a flash cable that will allow you to connect a CLS speedlight to the hot shoe of a DSLR. This cable allows you to get the flash off-camera about three feet. You cannot daisy-chain multiple CLS speedlights using this cable.

* The SB400 is a CLS Speedlight that does not include any wireless capability. It can only work when mounted in a hot shoe on-camera or off-camera using a CLS flash cable.

* The SB600 is a CLS Speedlight that can work either in the hot shoe on-camera or wirelessly. However, since the D50 does not have a built-in Commander, the SB600 can only work in the hot shoe of the D50 or off-camera using a CLS flash cable.

* The SB20 is an old speedlight that was developed to work with the Nikon N2020 film camera. It is NOT compatible with the CLS system, so it cannot work in iTTL mode on the D50. It can, however, work in Manual or Auto mode. In Manual mode you have to set the power of the flash manually. In Auto mode, the flash reads the reflected energy in the scene and shuts off the flash when it reaches the correct amount.

* There is a film TTL flash cable that will allow you to daisy-chain multiple SB20's off camera when attached to a film camera. This cable will not work with DSLR cameras like the D50.

So, the bottom line answer to your question is no. You cannot use any of these for multiple flash, either wireless or cabled.

Answer: 
The SB-20 can be use in Auto Non-TLL, Manual, and Rear-curtain Sync. D50 doesn't have the commander mode option (you can use the SU-800 wireless commander). Also, you will need to set the SB-400 in a SU-4 in order to convert it in a slave flash. The SB-600 you can set it up as a master flash in the camera to trigger the other (not as a commander) or as remote flash if you’re using the SU-800.

My shots in sunny environments are all horribly overexposed. I followed a suggestion to use "P" mode and ISO at 200 and spot metering, but it did not help at all. The auto mode had been always used previously. This started to happen 2 years ago, and happens every time now. I'm very disappointed in this camera; I believed Nikon to be the best quality, but this model is proving otherwise. What are my options at fixing this problem?

If you are having to force it open then there is a very good chance that something has gone wrong mechanically. I would suggest sending it in to a service center to get it checked out before any serious damage is done.

1. When I put a 4 GB card in, the area on the display where it normally says how many images are on the card says CHR or CHA, not sure which. What does that mean.
2. Can the D50 take 4 GB cards?

Answer: 
That will depend on the type of lens you’re using. If you want to take close-up shots you will need a macro lens. Please click on the link below for macro lenses.

I've been the proud owner of the d50 for 5 years. I've also been doing a lot more weddings as of recent and I seem to be missing key shots b/c my camera's reaction time has slowed. I can take a picture and then have to wait for it to render or save the image before I can take another one. I've never experienced that problem before. I like my camera, but not at the expense of missing irreplaceable moments. Do I need to upgrade the camera body?

Answer: 
On the bulb setting the shutter is open as long as the shutter release is held down. The D50 is not compatable with Nikon remotes that have a Bulb timing function.

Answer: 
The right selection for a lens will depend a lot on the type of photography that you are interesting. Some photographers look for faster lenses (large aperture ex. f/2.8), wide angle, Telephoto, Macro or zoom lenses.
Please visit our website and use the lens finder tool in order for you to make your selection base on your needs.
