    Nikon D50 Digital SLR

    I am looking at one of these on eBay

    I am a novice with these things only ever used a phone camera!

    What is so good about them? What is top whack you would bid?

    It really is in immacualte condition!

    its not a bad camera... but knocking on a bit now...

    I got an Olympus 410 for £299 with a 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 & ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 lense kit..

    It all comes down to how much you want to spend...

    If I was you i would try and get something a bit newer.... or.. if you can get a good kit on ebay with lensesm bag, spare battery for less than £180 ish it may be worth it..

    Theres loads of reviews out there...

    Thanks rick

    so is it worth getting a Digital SLR instead of a 10MP camera for example just for taking occasional good quality pics?

    A compact camera is good for photos at parties and putting in your pocket... if you are really interested in taking photos of a good quality DSLR is the way to go..

    Its all about the lenses..

    Without going into detail... a DSLR 8 mega pixel would give a better photo than a standard 10mp compact..

    Much much better, without opening a can of worms i bought a Canon from e-bay, 20D, that was immaculate, i love it, just bought a couple of new lenses which really make a difference :thumbsup:

    If you're serious about taking pictures then definitely go for a DSLR, whether it be Canon, Nikon or whatever

    i cant agree more.... without making the thread into a photography thread explaining the differance in CCD (charge-coupled device) and CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) image sensors etc etc... as it could take a while....... and people never agree really on the matter of what is better and why.....

    My advice is to take a read of the reviews online... go to your local camera shop ie.. Jessops.. even currys etc and pick a few up and take a feel of them..

    A lot of the Nikon Bodies are still the same so you should be able to get a feel for them..

    The only reason i went for the *0D range of Canons over the *00D range is that they are much larger and i have quite large hands, i felt like i would break the 400D that i picked up!! Definitely feel them, use them, ask questions, then scour the net for the cheapest price!!
