We have snow and ice here in Michigan, so I thought I'd try out my new D50 on a low light "icy" subject. There is still some noise, but much less than my Panasonic FZ20. Taken at iso 800, so that could be why some noise exists. I opted for the Tamron 24-135 rather than the D50 kit lens. So far I'm happy with the setup.

Same setup taken a couple hours later. The lensadds an interesting affect to pinpoints of light. It does add a few green artifacts, but overall I'm pleased with the combination. BTW, the only filter is a UV.

Very cool (no pun intended) photo. Makes me wish I didn't live in sunny CA.

Thanks for the comments. I still like the FZ20, but the amount of detail the D50 can capture when zooming in on pictures is much better. The DSLR has significantly less noise in low light situations too.

I hope you are using the NEF file format.* It's a little more work but worht the effort.* And sometimes, there isn't a need to run it through an image processor.* The D-50 is a very nice camera.

I think these shots look great I just got my D50 and was a bit bummed at winter setting in but this gives me new hope in finding cool shots in the cold months ahead. I went for tameron lens to (28-300) and am quite happy with it also. Nice shots!

I used my Raw format on my D50 yesterday for the first time. Seemed to work fine. I was able to open the images in the adobe bridge (CS2) and see them and after updateing to the newest beta raw plugin (free) from Adobe, Working on the image was painless.
