I bought myself a D50 Thursday afternoon - what a terrific camera this is. I'm very impressed by it, very happy. The 18-55 kit lens is better than I thought it would be; I'll continue using it for a while. Eventually I'll get a long zoom and a good prime lens.

I took my new D50 out yesterday afternoon for the first time; these images are of one of my favourite public artworks in Montreal, a sculpture called "The Illuminated Crowd".

Comments & critiques welcomed!

Great shots! I love the composition on these shots. I've had my D50 for a few months and I really love it.

Looks like you are off to a great start, (saw your post in the panny forum). You and your Nikon are a good match. Donna

My D50 joy continues - I just love this camera. I'm so glad I got it. Tried RAW processing for the first time ever today, using the Nikon Capture NX demo (which I found to be quite decent). I don't think I'll ever shoot .jpegs again!

Ditto! I absolutely love my D50. Totally blows my last Nikon away (N65). My first digi-cam too. I held off because I was saving to buy a nice 1,000 dollar digital slr camera. Imagine my surprise when I got my hands on this jewel for only 550 bucks!

Great pix btw. You can still clearly see the texture of the statues in every pic whether in the foreground of the shot or the back. Nice shooting... nice camera.

I got my D50 just the other day, my first SLR, before I had a Canon Ixus 40. I love it.



Took this yesterday:

That's a great shot, Plankton!

A little suggestion though is that because of the subject, you can probably sharpen in more with USM and give definitions to its hair. Here's a quick try with USM 225-2-0 setting. I hope you don't mind.




Have fun with your camera!
