Nikon D50

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 19 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Engadget has some pictures of it, via PhotographyBlog via DPhoto. I’m blogging about the D50 because I want it (wink wink mom and dad). However, it is also an afordable camera. In short, the D50 is designed to fit between the “point and shoot” digitals and the entry level SLR digitals. I suppose you might call the D50 the entry entry level camera.

However, Costco is now listing their Canon EOS Digital Rebel 6.3MP camera at $769.99. Seeing as the EOS is an entry level digital SLR, and pretty good digital point and shoot runs around $300, the D50 should hopefully fall in somewhere around the $500 mark. Hopefully. The D50 is rumored to have a 6MP CCD, 2-inch LCD monitor, and, interestingly enough, store images on SD cards, rather than CompactFlash. My Toshiba has a built-in SD reader and my current Nikon P-and-S uses SD, so that is sort of a big selling point. However, color reproduction is really the final say…for the most part. I also hope that the D50 supports Adobe’s Digital Negative format.

Everything should be made clear when Nikon offically announces the D70 on the 20th of April…only a few days left!
