The D50 is very old, so we recommend a more recent, advanced model like the D3000. Here's what we had to say when this was released in 2005:

The Nikon D50 is designed to be an affordable digital SLR for users who want the speed and control of an SLR, with the option of an automatic mode that offers point & shoot simplicity. Designed as a lower-cost alternative to Nikon's popular D70, the D50 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor (thanks to its support of Secure Digital memory cards), and offers a number of improvement on the D70's design, including an improved focusing system and a larger LCD screen. When it is released in June '05, the D50 should sell for approximately $899 with lens included.
