I like this old digital, has been reliable and takes pretty good pictures. Am going to get a D70S very soon to use my 35mm Nikon lenses.

By today's standard this camera is OK but when it first came out it was a great camera. It has some nice features but is now behind most of today's point and shoot digitals.

Great first digital camera! Has loads of manual functions for fine tuning. Slow by todays standards, but was a winner back in the day!

This camera introduced me to digital photography and worked really well, especially with the additional lenses available. For a point-and-shoot camera it was great.

Great camera in it's day, but not as useful for more professional looking shots as the D50.

This is the first digital camera that I owned. It performs well for its size and is good for upto an 8X10 image for quick shots and in rough areas that you wouldn't want to take an expensive SLR.
