Has anyone come across a user guide or tutorial on book format specifically for the D50?

You should be able to gather all of the basics by reading Jeffs review. Probably better than most tutorials.

Yea sure enough, here you go: User Guide for the Nikon D50 (http://www.fixya.com/BrowseManual.aspx?mnlid=28970&prdid=160698) but an actual manual would be better. Look on Nikon's web site in their support section maybe.

Thanks for the info!

Have you come across the actual manual online for the D50 that can be downloaded?

Yeah, what a bummer. We Nikon folks have to work for a living. ;)

Thanks for filling in.

Bluedog posted the User manual link about 2 messages ago. Just click on that link. As far as 3rd party books go I just noticed the Short Courses guys have got a new book comming on the D50. It says July, but looks like they missed the window. You can contact them by e-mail to see when it's due out.

I would be willing to bet that Peter iNova will also have a D50 book shortly at:

I have the user manual from Nikon, I am interested in one like that exists on the numerous books that exist on the D70, but looking for one solely for the D50.

I emailed the Short Courses as the release indicates in July, but seems it is still being developed.

If anyone finds anything, please let me know.

It usually takes 2-4 months to bring out a user guide to a new camera. If you have some questions maybe the Nikon user base can answer them as the D50 and D70 are pretty similar.
