Nikon D50 - Magic Lantern Guide by Simon Staffort
Twenty thousand digital images or so ago, I bought a Nikon D50 SLR. I already had an N5005 film SLR and was using a Cool-Pix 995 to good advantage, but I wanted to move to digital SLR. I got started, became fairly competent, but somewhere along the way I realized that the Nikon manual that came with the D50 may have been complete and accurate,but was not very clear, offered very few tips, and did not discuss any limitations or problems with the D50. It was then that I bought a copy of "Nikon D50, the Magic Lantern Guide by Simon Stafford".
This book has done what I hoped it would do for me. It has helped me to exploit the extensive capabilities of the D50 (now somewhat obsolete, but still an extremely versatile and powerful camera). Of equal importance to me is that the book has provided great understanding as to how the D50 works along with useful pointers on how to use it effectively, and how to avoid or work around problems or deficiencies of the D50. My copy is ear-marked and highlighted and I refer to it frequently. It has changed the way I use my D50 and for the better.
The only minor problem with the book is that it could have used another proof-reading, but the errors are generally grammatical and obvious so this is not a major wrap against the book.
One of my daughters and one of my daughter-in-laws are using the D50 for serious photography. I bought this book for both of them and both would agree that the book has improved their use of the D50.
I recommend this book for any D50 owners who do not have it. Almost regardless of how you use the D50, this book will improve your images.

A essential tool for the Nikon D50 owner
It's really a very important tool every Nikon D50 owner should have. There are fantastic things in this book that nikon doesn't tell in the user's guide. I think it would be perfect if the book had color pictures and not only W&B ones.
