Nikon D50 review updated to full production status|
(Friday, August 12, 2005 - 10:39 EDT)
Given the amount of email we've been getting lately, this has to be one of the most eagerly anticipated production updates to a review we've ever done.
Wait no more, our Nikon D50 review has now been updated to include test results and sample images from a full production model. My initial (very positive) impressions of the D50 were largely borne out by the production model, and I was surprised by how low its image noise is, particularly at high ISO. It's a "value priced" d-SLR, but its performance is very much first rate.
As usual, there's too much detail to even mention in passing here, see the full Nikon D50 review for full information. (If you've already read the First Look preview of the camera, you may want to just dive into the Nikon D50 test results.)
Bottom line though, the Nikon D50 is just an excellent match for the aforementioned "family photographer," or for anyone wanting exceptional value in an entry-level digital SLR. This is a camera that will get you started in the world of d-SLRs at an affordable price, but one that will also give you plenty of room to grow over the years, as your skills mature.
Very highly recommended, a dead shoe-in as a Dave's Pick. Check out our full Nikon D50 review for all the details!
