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!)
