I love the camera and enjoy it. I will have to get used to this SLR stuff again. I moved up from a panasonic fz15 and i guess it made me a little lazy. Going to take me a little time to get back into the swing of this. But I added a few pictures below for my first venture out with my new camera. Comments welcome as I want to learn as much as I can about this camera. The only annoyance I have with it is the auto flash pop up and having to turn it off all the time.

Sorry for the Flowers and Waterfalls. They are predictable subjects to learn with.

Stop using auto - switch to P mode.

I had the same little gripe with my new D50 on the first day or two - Keith1200rs is right though, just switch to "P" mode. Like you I'm coming from a Panny (FZ20) - still a great camera, I intend to keep using it. But the switch to my D50 has been pretty revelatory and highly enjoyable - I'm really glad I bought mine.

Thanks for posting the pics, don't worry about "flowers and waterfalls" - the images are well composed and make for nice viewing. They have a zenlike tranquility to them.

If I might suggest, try a little post-processing - I hope you don't mind, I've attached a PP'd version of one of your waterfall shots. With a bit of sharpening and adjustment of levels, it really pops!

Hi, I am new and glad I found this forum! Those are great photos and really love the edited one. When I first got my D50, I had big problems getting the images as sharp as my 880. Even had my instructor do comparative work with his D70, plus the rep at the store did some work with me. I just wasn't satisfied. Now, I just shoot everything in raw and really enjoy the post work options. This is a really cool forum!

I am surprised at the amount of people who have switched from Pany FZ20 to Nikon D50. I guess one of the reasons is the feel of D 50...It is just perfect...I have handled more than a dozen DSLRs (for testing purposes), but the grip and feel of D50 is just right, nothing less nothing more....

BTW...all 4 of your pics are absolutely great...just feel so peaceful even looking at them...

Just to ensure that I progress with my D50 I have put up a blog, have a look and let me know how you find it...

Most of them are clicked with 18-55mm kit lens...

Thanks

Thank you Keith. I should have caught that "S" after http:.

I appreciate your time.

That is one fine picture huh?

I've tried shooting in "manual" mode, but don't have much luck. Guess I need to practice more.
