Nikon D50 + 18-55mm Lens - Entry Level DSLR

 

Nikon has managed to come in under the £500 price point with its first entry-level DSLR. But does it live up to the company's considerable reputation?

The Nikon D50 claims a battery power of up to 2000 shots and although it lacks a memory card, comes with battery, charger, cables and software

Forget the low-ish pixel-count, this camera has the lot: handling, features and image quality. Add that to the high-powered battery, good for a claimed 2000 shots, and you have a real belter

Nikon D50 DSLR

 

Anyone considering getting into digital SLR photography today, but lacks the budget of a top professional, now has more options than ever to choose between. Canon's EOS 350D, Konica Minolta's 5D entry and Pentax's *ist DS are all ‘budget' D-SLRs...

Good price, good handling, build and design, large 2-inch colour LCD, USB 2.0 connectivity, great image quality.

Kit lens okay but not brilliant, single command dial.

The D50 represents an ideal D-SLR for those first time D-SLR buyers on a more modest budget. Image quality, handling, responsiveness and key features strike an excellent balance, and while the D50 lacks some of the more advanced bits of the D70s, it is...

The D50 is Nikon's answer to the rapidly growing mid-price SLR (single lens reflex) digicam market, offering 6.1Mp (megapixel) resolution and a 3X zoom lens for £649. As such, it's up against some tough competition from the likes of Canon's EOS-350D,...

Nikon's D50 may not be a great leap forward from the D70 but there was little need for improvement. This is a well-built camera that takes great-quality images, all for just £649. Canon's 8Mp 350D is tempting at only £50 more but both are wonderful...

Best D-SLR Entry Level: Nikon D50

 

Little sister of the popular Nikon D70, the 6.1 megapixel D50 gives amateurs the chance to shoot high-resolution images at a very low cost. The ergonomics are well thought out and no major feature or function is missing. In the field, the Nikon D50...

Nikon D50

 

The D50 is a competent camera and represents a fantastic deal for first time D-SLR purchasers on a tight budget.

Good price, good handling, build and design, large 2-inch colour LCD, USB 2.0 connectivity, great image quality

The 18-55mm kit lens is quite limiting, as is a single command dial

Nikon D50 SLR

 

The D50 is Nikon's entry level DSLR, entering the market at £469 body only or £549 body and 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IF-ED. Don't let this entry level tag fool you though, this camera is packed with features and is more than capable of producing excellent...

Ergonomic Grip; Lightweight body; Excellent battery life; Well thought out layout of controls; User friendly controls

Silver finish is easily marked
