Nikon D50

Not exactly news, this, but I thought I’d better at least mention that Nikon has unveiled their latest entry-level DSLR: the D50. It’s got a decently-sized 2inch LCD, near-instant startup time, and lots of automated options for the weekend shooter. It’s also got SD, which I don’t suppose is an issue for the intended audience of first-time DSLR folks. It uses the same 6 megapixel CCD sensor as the D70 – maybe that would be the clincher for the uninformed when choosing between this and the Canon 350D/Rebel XT? Oh and there’s a lovely silver version too.

Predictably, DPReview have got the hands-on preview.
