'It's fit and finish are excellent, and though it's light, it feels very solid'
'The D50 is a pretty complex camera
'Budding shutterbugs looking for fast operation coupled with useful features such as a robust burst mode, accurate exposure metering, and iTTL electronic flash control (both internal and external) will find a lot to like about this budget digital SLR contender'
'Ideal for those who have outgrown their compact camera or for those who want to take their first steps into digital photography.'
'Just a cursory glance at this camera suggests there's a lot of technology that's been plundered from Nikon's current flagship compact, the Coolpix 5700.'
'Clunky, sluggish interface No AF illuminator, poor low light focusing Does not fully support Nikon Speedlites Small LCD No RAW mode yet (most of competition has it) Flimsy plastic door over CF slot No live histogram in record mode'
'Although this was slightly evident in the macro shot, Nikon still blows the competition away, capturing a tiny area of 24 x 18mm – extreme detail is clearly visible in the photo.'
'In contrast to the overall build quality of the camera, the door covering the Type II CompactFlash slot (which also handles IBM Microdrives) feels very flimsy.'
