Nikon D50 review

The nikon D50 takes pro style pictures – the camera came with a guide on using the D50 which was very handy – even amateurs can just point and click!! I inserted a 2gig SD and this gives me 550 pictures on the finest and highest resolution. The 15-88mm lense is a great multi purpose lense for portraits and general pictures. I found a great nikon camera case on ebay for £8 delivered which fits great. Ive kept the camera close at hand and took lots of pictures around the house to get me started and the results are just out of this world compared to my olympus point and click which has always given great looking pictures – i straight away noticed the wideness and more depth available in my shots! I also tested my mates D40 and that was a great bit of kit – id say for anybody wanting to get started with digital photography get:
Nikon D50 Extra Battery
2 X 2 gig SD card
Macbook or any apple
Aperture or iphoto
