I appreciate the D50 so much that I find no compelling reason to upgrade at this moment. It works well with my lenses and can hold its own in colour reproduction even against S5Pro. It is even compatible with SB900 flashlight. Very good camera.
Not a dumb question but really Nikon should allow people to check on this camera. Use a graphics software, I use Irfanview which is free to download. It allows you to view the EXIF information of your picture which will also have information about your total shutter count. I wasn't able to get this information from Lightroom though but maybe someone could shed some light on this.
yup. those 2 furthest to the back of the camera. i haven't tried this personally, but read it somewhere. makes sense cos the d50 sensor uses an electronic shutter for anything over 1/250. and it does work with non ttl flashes.
