Nikon D50

10 Reasons why Nikon D50 is better

than the average

1.Substantially larger sensor
23.7 x 15.6mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.More battery power
1500mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (86% don't have it)
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
4.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
5.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
6.Vastly less shutter lag
0.114svs 16.330s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
7.Has an electronic viewfinder
Yesvs No (84% don't have it)
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
8.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
9.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
10.Measurably less startup delay
0.2svs 34.8s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
