JimC and zygh thanks so much for making me feel welcome. Well darn the site had about 7426 feedbacks with 98% satisfied... Will wait to see when the camera gets here..and if its *grey colored* i should know huh? *just kidding* heheh

Now after reading more here..I just hope the darn battery doesn't explode in my face while shooting...due to being cheap..grrrr. I hate the learning mode!!! Wish i was a genius type! Again thanks for the welcomes! Time will tell if ... its grey or black!!

You might want to look into a book called "Nikon D50 Digital Field Guide" by David D. Busch, I found that book to be easier to understand and more detailed than the owners manual. Congratulations on your new purchase hope you find it as enjoyable as I have. Good luck Greg

I was just going to respond to you in private so not to congest the board..but is there such a way to just post a message to individuals or ... is that just if preferences are allowed? dohhh! I get paranoid writing on boards... dont want folks thinking im a board hog or Total Dummy ... *lol* and definately am not an all about me person... but i dont wanna ignore anyone that comments to me as well... what to do..what to do.. thanks for the input!!!

Here's a nice site for new dSLR users. It was really helpful to me:

Add me to the list of "just got a D50"
I must be the only one who has never read the Manual that comes with the camera before, I like Trial and Error Learning. but I think with this camera I might need to

I had never screwed on a lens before (EVER) So I'm new to DSLR's

bought it Locally from London Drugs (they Price Matched KErrisdale Camera's so 849.99 New (Canadian)) Not a super deal at all, But I like getting things locally Just in case there is a problem and to support the businesses (London Drugs is a Western Canadian company anyway, Would have bought it At my Local Camera store, but they were too busy trying to upsell me to a D70 and basically looking down on me for "only" buying the D50. The Guy even said "Well I guess its a good camera if your only going to use the the little auto green square function")

So screw them!

Where are trhe membership cards? Got my D50 last month and happily snapping away since I got it. I did a lot of research (almost drove my coworker crazy asking him his opninons daily) and tested the D70 before I made the final decision. After comparing pictures taken of the same scenes with my Fuji S7000 and the D70 I decided to try theD50.From the first download, I knew that the D50 was for me.
