Overview

The D50 is the ideal introduction to Digital SLR photography, with a wide range of Automatic features to make great photographs easily. Whatever you shoot there is a Digital Vari Program that sets up the camera for the best exposure. Just select the mode dial and the D50 takes care of the rest. It's small, it's light, it fits snugly in your hands and delivers clear, sharp results with extra possibilities of control and creativity

  • The 6.1 megapixel DX CCD image sensor produces exceptionally vivid and detailed high-resolution images – ideal for enlargements.
  • Continuous shooting at 2.5 frames per second combined with shutter speeds of up to 1/4000 sec and Flash Sync Speed of 1/500 sec.
  • The high-energy rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery EN-EL3 delivers the power to shoot up to 2,000 images on a single charge and is supplied with a new and smaller battery charger MH-18a.
  • A large, bright 2-inch LCD screen makes it easy to preview images and also displays an easy-to-understand, colour-coded menu. A handy 'Help' button brings up a straightforward explanation of the features.
  • 7 Digital Vari-Program Modes that automatically optimize the camera settings to produce great results in any condition. Selections include Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Close-up, Night Portrait and the new Child Mode which enhances the colour of young skin tones. There’s also a full manual mode for users who want to stay in complete creative control.
  • Ensures accurate and optimum exposure control in all types of lighting conditions. Its new technology detects highlights and shadows and compensates for them to prevent under or over exposure.
  • An advanced 5-area autofocus system with predictive focus tracking and Lock-on™ delivers greater precision and improved focus tracking to clearly capture the action. The automatic AF-assist illuminator helps to maintain focus in low-light conditions.
  • Images can be printed without a computer, quickly and easily to any PictBridge compatible printer.
