Summary

Our Score:

8

User Score:

The built-in flash on the D50 has slightly more wide coverage than that on the D70. With TTL metering it produces good exposures indoors at close range.

----

Balancing the flash against the ambient light produces a nice effect with this bizarre collection of objects.

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?
