You would want to read this in case you haven’t ever used a DSLR type of camera before, or else you want a refresher course on the basic aspects of how your new camera works.
Modern DSLR With Nikon D50
Most modern DSLRs which is including the Nikon D50 that use a conventional mirror and prism system to move light to the places it needs to be for image preview. Light comes in through the lens and hits a large mirror that reflects most of the light up into a prism, which in turn reflects that light (and reorients it so that it’s right side up) into your eye via the viewfinder eyepiece. When you press the shutter release, the mirror flips up out of the way, a shutter opens to reveal the sensor, and the light then goes directly to the digital sensor.
The D50 steals the best features from previous Nikon digital bodies, builds on the interface Nikon used in the D70 and D100, and adds a few wrinkles of its own.
From the D1 and D70 series, the Nikon D50 inherits an electronic/mechanical shutter trick that provides fast flash sync speeds. Essentially, shutter speeds up to 1/90 are done mechanically, while shutter speeds above that are done electronically.
If this all sounds like it might be a technological powerhouse in a small package, you are right, it is. And you will note that Nikon is pretty good about standardizing on technology across their lineup. While the Nikon D50 is not as capable as a D2x, it is a lot closer in ability and function than most people at first guess.
Features Of Nikon D50
The Nikon D50 uses the same mount for interchangeable lenses that Nikon has used since the first F-series camera, introduced in 1959. While Nikon has made many subtle improvements to the mount to support electronic exposure calculations, autofocus, and vibration reduction, the physical attributes have remained largely unchanged. This allows Nikon D50 owners to use virtually any manual focus or autofocus lens Nikon has made.
That said, the Nikon D50 most closely is kind of alike to the D70 series, both in design and features. In many ways, the Nikon D50 is simply a slightly downsized and simplified D70s. Like most Nikon bodies, the Nikon D50 has a very sturdy body that is partially sealed to protect against the elements. You should be able to use the Nikon D50 in light rain or mist without having to provide much extra protection.
The lithium-based batteries of the Nikon D50 don’t lose capacity over shot periods of non-use. If you store the battery for a long period of time, it will probably lose some charge, though. It takes very long periods of time to see significant power reduction on a battery not being used. Overall, the battery performance of the Nikon D50 series is actually quite good. By minimizing use of a few power-hungry features, you can easily get by on one or two batteries in a day full of shooting.
In case you wear glasses or contact lenses, you need to ensure that your optometrist know that you are a photographer, and that viewfinder image is formed at a distance of 1 meter with an eyepoint relief of 18mm. You optometrist may make slight adjustments to your prescription which assist you see the image in the viewfinder more clearly.
Exposure bracketing can be performed by this Nikon D50, providing you with an automatic series of three pictures taken at different exposures. These exposures can vary exposure, or by white balance, but not both simultaneously. This setting allows you to set the bracketing feature to function and to choose how the camera performs this braketing.
One more advantage of the Nikon D50 is its ability to capture with a DSLR quality images and also the inventive prospects offered by interchangeable lenses. With the launched of the Nikon D50, Nikon has as well introduced two new and affordable DX Nikkor lenses: the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm and AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm. These two lenses are perfectly paired with the Nikon D50 to provide a wide zoom range, at the same time maintaining a lightweight and extremely-compact size. This Nikon D50 is compatible with more than 50 of AF Nikkor lenses, providing the identical excellent shade copy, picture readability and quick autofocus efficiency relied upon by the different number of skilled photographers.
