"RE: D50 Sharpness"

Hello Brian

Thank you for valuable insight, greatly appreciated.

I think it would be better if I applied all your principles to the D50 until I know what I am doing before moving upward.

So far I have restricted myself to scenes with movement but I think it is time I tried macro and non movement shots to cover a wider spectrum which I would like to submit in due course for your comments. This would allow me slower shutter speeds and more time to reflect between shots.

After the Train shoot I tried half a dozen hand held shots of buses but from my vantage point the highlights were blown out where the sun caught bright surfaces.

I am going to try shooting the 5k run tomorrow, weather permitting,
but restrict my usage to the 18-55mm lens. Distance from the action is not a problem as I can stand 3 feet away from the athletes. Next week I will try the Train shots again using the 18-55 lens as the end of platforms are not populated but fenced off and the warning line is 3 feet away from the platform edge.

I notice that when I use Auto ISO the D50 shows ISO between the 4 availabe to the user and goes up to 6400 which is in red.

Incidentally, I prefer to view my images on a PC screen 15" x 11" 1024 x 768 although I can go up to 1280 x 1024 and I seldom print out, do you have any thoughts for the optimum shooting size for this screen area and resolutions.

Many thanks and the kindest regards.

Philip
