I am so excited! There is going to be a Nikon camera roadshow tomorrow at Gurney Plaza.
My atm ajak me to go and see. Wheee! So, no breast augmentation, after all. (joke only ok?)
Anyone has this camera? I had tested the Nikon D70s which is too heavy for my lady-like arm and the hold is too broad for my palm.
I read on dpreview about this:
Digital SLR’s are quickly becoming the fastest moving segment of the digital camera market, this means more new digital SLR’s, more competition and lower prices. The Nikon D50 is introduced as a more affordable and easier to use version of the D70 which was released just under fifteen months ago. Anyone who has seen or handled the D70 will immediately see a strong resemblance in the D50, it’s only when you start to examine the camera in a little more detail that you notice the differences (we’ve detailed them below). Clearly the D50 is designed to compete with other affordable digital SLR’s such as the Canon EOS 350D (Digital Rebel XT), Pentax *ist DS and Olympus E-300.
Which means it better be in the same price range. God, please let it be less than RM4K. God, please let it be less broader than the D70s. God, please charm my husband.
The full comparison on D50 and D70s is available on dpreview but is there anyone out there who can give the layman comparisons? I only understand half of what is written on the site.
The only key difference between the D50 and D70 from an image pipeline point of view is that the image processing algorithm has now been tweaked to improve rendition of highlight detail (to clip less and have a softer roll-off to the highlight). It’s also worth noting that the D50’s default color space mode is IIIa which is still sRGB but is described as being optimized for nature and landscape photographs, you can see the difference in the sample on this page of our D70 review.
Gosh, I am so excited. Better don’t blog tonight but concentrate on massaging my atm.
