Equipment: Nikon D50 information leaked to web

| | Comments (0)

Nikon Corporation accidentally allowed the user manual for their upcoming D50 digital SLR to leak on the web, according to I tried googling for it (for ... errr... research purposes only...), but it appears to have been taken down already. We know it's 6.1 megapixels and will write to SD cards. It's being designed as the EOS Digital Rebel/KISS killer. If you have any info, feel free to post.

2005.05.02: Some other sites are illegally hosting the manuals for the D50 and D70s (the successor to the very popular D70). Rob Galbraith's site has more info on this story as it unfolds.

Although the specs below are very similar, the D70s is significantly more flexible in its settings than the D50. You can think of the two as Nikon's equivalents of Canon's Rebel Digital and 20D -- the same image sensor and CPU, but different programming and a simplified interface on the consumer model.
