D50 at High ISO

Discussion in 'People' started by mindspan, May 14, 2007.

  1. Just a couple of snapshots -- my niece playing in the sunbeam and her dog Otis. Really happy with how the D50 handles noise. Smokes my D200. Both shots taken with the 50 1.4; no noise reduction applied; both shot in RAW.

    ISO 560 f1.6 1/125


    ISO 1600 f1.6 1/125

  2. Nice pooch. And I agree completely. Just picked up a D50 and right out of camera, very little PP, ISO 800, here's what I got with my old cheapie 75-150E:



    Gotta love it!

    these shots confirm why i need a d50 as a second body =)
  5. I loved the D50 when I had mine for a breif period of time. The out of camera shots (especially at high iso's) were great... but I couldn't get over the one dial issue after owning a D70s for so long. Nice camera though... :wink:

    Great shots and a great lens.

    I also love my D50 and how well it does at high ISO. I shot some pictures at a university graduation at 1600 and they seem to me to have very little noise.
  7. Thanks for the comments folks -- now I just need an 85 1.4 to complete my low light setup on that camera. The 50 1.4 is pretty nice, but need some flexibility.

    the prob with the 85 and low light shooting is the focal length ...u need more shutter speed for sharp images...the 50 is pushing it actually..a 35 1.4 AFD would be ideal, imho..but whatchu guna do? no such animal and the 28 AFD is just plain silly priced....;-))

    come on Nikon, get with it, will ya???
  9. I could have shot either photo above with the 85 at the same 1/125 I used with the 50 and gained some extra reach. Sure I'd have to be more careful, but I think it would definitely be an asset in situations like stage photography and the like where there are distance and low light issues.

    sure, but under 1/60s where i shoot my 50 alot @ higher iso's getting a sharp image with the 85 is very difficult
