Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.

----

Unfortunately this was the best weather we’ve had all week here in sunny Devon. The D50’s exposure meter copes OK, but the picture is still very dull

----

The lens supplied with the D50 is not particularly good. In this shot you can see the effects of barrel distortion at the wide angle setting

----

The overcast conditions seem to have confused the automatic white balance, causing a blue colour cast on this shot. The hull of the boat should be white.

What exactly is an "entry level" DSLR!? I guess there are entry level photographers but surely this description for a camera is meaningless and pointless?

I disagree - it's fairly self-evident. It's a DSLR, with all the inherent benefits of that technology, but is on the lowest rung of the ladder in terms of cost and features / sophistication.





My Canon 400D is / was such an entry-level DSLR. Which means I benefit from great image quality, interchangeable lenses, external flash etc etc but the performance & features fall short of the more expensive models. So it isn't fully weather-proof like the pro models; it has a crop sensor, not full-frame; it has fewer AF points...





Doesn't that make sense, Terry?
