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?
