    d50=d70s?! Firmware.

    I'm in suspicion that the d50 can be firmware upgraded to a d70s (or close) using the d70 firmware upgrade to the d70s features (excluding some), so basicly, since the d50 is a "lite" model of the d70s, does anyone guess it can be flashed to a d70s? I don't know the exact differences between the d50 and d70s, or if that firmware upgrade even enables those features, so does anyone know?

    Sure, not much of a help, but this would be temping: http://www2.buydig.com/shop/basket.a...=add&sks=NKD50,

    d50 plus free 512mb card for 747 bucks, plus free overnight shipping! If it's possible to flash this thing to a d70, thats one great deal!


    EDIT: yeah I understand this is all kinda useless, would void warrenties, but I'm a computer enthusaist, more specificly overclocker, so this stuff is my kinda thing LOL.

    So what do you think can be changed in firrmware? The D50 has almost all of the important D70 features. The ones left behind are 1/8000 sec shutter, LCD backlight, and a second command wheel which all require hardware.

    The D50 is its own model which shares a common sensor, actually has a better processor, firmware package, and USB2.0. There wouldn't be a lot worth changing by using the D70s firmware.
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...

    Nvm then, I didn't take the time to look at the hardware differences, oh well.

    The last great firmware upgrade hack was the Canon 300D (which was a 10D in a new package) using the 10D hacked firmware. Since then the camera companies pretty much include the latest and greatest hardware and firmware with new cameras. And in Nikons case they even upgraded the D70 firmware to incorporate the new D70s functions.
