Won the auction for a Nikon D50 on ebay, lens is no good but hey.. for $60 it came with a charger, battery *AND* 2gb card!!
So next is to get a replacement AF-S 18-55 DX glass and its ready to roll!

This will be my daughter's gift for xmas. A dinosaur! But the deal is.. if she shows interest in the art
and actually USES the camera, Ill be more than happy to build a scratch pile to get her a 5300 or something nice!
The good thing is, whatever lens she has for this camera will run on the 5300 (AF-S DX glass works fine on both).
(See, Im just a little smart when it comes to planning!!)

I took a few pix with it tonight.. decent 6mp images. Even at 1600 it does NOT like indoor at night photography! HA HA!

Tomorrow I hope to take some with daylight (if it stays daylight long enough!) and see how they turn out.

Its like giving your kid a 4 cyl Pinto to learn to drive on. Show me you will wheel it and appreciate it,
I will try to help you upgrade.

Ill post some pix when I have something to post...


This is her, will be 21 soon... (Im showing my age!)

Here are some sample JPG images from the SD card, no editing..
Some are indoor TTL with Neewer flash which works great with the camera.

I think this 12 year old pre Expeed processor camera is working JUST FINE for a learner camera.
I hope to be able to instruct in manual exposure first, I even have a 1967 Sears SLR camera
to show the operations of shutter and aperture.

Andrew
