"Must haves for a d50 owner?"


US
          

Hi. I'm very new to SLRs but have been digging up plenty of useful information here. The one thing I couldn't find was a basic list of things I would need to acompany my new camera. I have a D50 with the 18-55 kit lens, tripod, and bag.

What are the "must have" items when owning a SLR camera? I know I need to get a new lens depending on what I plan on shooting, but a lens is too expensive for me at the moment. I plan on going to Hawaii in the summer and would like to prep up my camera bag to have the essentials before going (I'd also like to test out everything).

Thanks!

I'd recommend a stronger flash (Sb600 or SB800) the ML-L3 remote, and of course a tele zoom lens (If you are on a budget go for the 55-200 - or save for the 70-300 VR)

There are either no "must haves" or thousands of them depending on how badly you are affected by NAS.
Really what you have is a good start and the rest of the posts on this thread will probably only totally confuse you as everybody will have a different opinion to the question that you posed.
What you need to do is go out and take hundreds of photos of things that you like photographing then you need to sit down and look at the photos critically and see what they tell you. Do you have portraits, landscapes, buildings, sports, indoor shots, macros, groups of people, etc? When the photos tell you what your style and interests are then you will be able to work out what you need.

Here are some suggestions for the well-stocked camera bag:

1. A spare camera battery -- the D50 battery lasts so long, you'll tend to forget to recharge it, but when it goes, it goes fast.

2. Another memory card, particularly for an extensive trip like your upcoming Hawaii expedition. (Are you taking a laptop or some other means of downloading pictures from the camera?)

3. A close up lens -- the kind that screws into the front of the lens. Inexpensive and good for quick close-ups.

4. A circular polarizer, for deepening blue skies and controlling reflections.

5. A blower brush, lens cleaning fluid and microfiber cloth for cleaning the front element of your lens.

6. Your D50 owner's manual!

MUST HAVES!!!!

the red pod by manfrotto- $17 (henrys/vistek/anywhere online)
ML-L3 remote release- $27 (same places)

that is the best $44 u can ever spend. those are the most frequently used items in my bag. the pod is essentially $17 VR. it goes everywhere, and turns anything into a rock steady tripod(not that this replaces a tripod). ive had SHARP exposures in the 30th of a second to 8 seconds range. the remote is perfect for landscapes when everything needs to be critically sharp.

It isn't critical yet, but it's also inevitable: you'll need a kit for cleaning the sensor. Right now you will avoid most of the problem as you have only one lens, thus keeping the mirror box relatively free of exposure to outside air and dust. Once you get another lens, you pretty much need to have this immediately.

Oops, clicked too soon. I'd also recommend Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D50. It is much better than the manual - far more information, and far better written. You can get it here. I have no relationship with the author other than a satisfied customer.

1. Extra memory cards
2. Extra bettery but like someone said the D50 gets crazy battery life just bring your charger if you do not get another battery.
3. Two cheap lens that help-50 1.8AF-D this lens sells for about
110$ and is great in low light, the 70-300G or 55-200DX AF-S ED both run around 150$ and can add reach the G 300 has more reach but slower and the 200 AF-S DX is a tad fast focusing and smaller.
4. Last a flash if on a budget the SB-600 is king but the SB-400 seems like a real winner for small travel and extra punch.

All that said if you can get nothing else you have a good rig and should get excellent pics. Have fun Jim

Here is a list of what I'd buy;
1) Good tripod(72inches)
2) 2GB card
3) Medium sized bag(Nikon or Tamrac)
4) Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens
5) Extra battery
6) UV filter(also protects main lens)

Others have said it but I'll add my vote:

Minimal/most important: Spare battery, spare memory card, sensor cleaning kit, soft cloth for cleaning lens front element, maybe a 52mm clear filter to protect the lens front element. (It's controversial if you need the last one - some people keep them on all the time, others say never. Personally, I keep one in my bag and use it in harsh environments i.e. blowing sand, salt water spray, etc.) The battery does seem to last forever, which causes me a problem because I go days and weeks without charging it! Bottom line: $35 to never get caught unable to take a picture. Same with the spare memory - I'd carry two 1 gig cards before I carried one 2 gig card, in case something goes wrong with a card. Even if you carry 2 gig cards, keep a spare on hand.

Relatively inexpensive fits-in-your-bag landscape kit: Get a Bogen 3007 table-top tripod and a mini ballhead, the wireless remote, a hot shoe mounted bubble level, and a circular polarizer.

If you're serious about shooting landscape: Add in a good full-size tripod.

If you're into indoor portraits, make it a tripod and a speedlight.

You may want to include a telephoto, and the 55-200 DX is very good.

In case you're worried about your bank account, remember this is only the beginning

This is a very open ended question. The list could go on for days. So I'll add what I have. Everyone's needs are different:

2 backup batteries (got them cheep enough and its good when traveling and taking hundreds of photos a day and using a VR lens)
8GB of SD cards; 2 2GB and 4 1GB
50mm f/1.8 lens
90mm f/2.8 macro (Tamron)
70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VRII
18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S
SB-600 (2 sets of rechargeable batteries)
Wireless remote
Tamrac Adventure 9 camera backpack with 2 detachable lens cases that can attach to my belt when traveling/walking about.
card reader
external hard drive, 250GB. Those files are pretty big so its nice to have extra HD space.
Gary Fong Lightsphere II inverted dome diffuser
travel tripod
table top tripod
full size tripod (2)

I think thats it....... for now. The lenses I want list is to long to list right now.

I used to carry loads of gear - all in a big bag etc The a couple of years ago I went on holiday to Rome - Took a simple body - a F50, a 28-80 and a 80-200. That was it, no tripod, no flash, no filters, no big bag just a waist pack and some film. You know what I took some of my favourite pictures on that trip. It became so easy. Sometimes I go out with an FE plus a 50mm f2 lens - lovely way to shoot, makes you think about every aspect.

Sometimes less is more...

D2Xs + AF20-35mm f2.8 + AF35-70mm f2.8 + AF80-200mm f2.8

or

FE + Nikkor 50mm f1.8 AIS

Maybe an "FE" is a "Film Engine"?

It's a classic Nikon from the 70s and early 80s, a very nice an well-built little camera. Here is a good description of it.

ok I have a cir polarizer on its way along with some close up lenses, spare battery that came with the camera, a tripod, 1 extra mem card. I have a laptop that I will be bringing with me as well as a 40 GB portable drive that will be dedicated for pics. I won't be doing any editing there, but will transfer as needed.

I plan on getting the 55-200mm in the next 2 months or sooner if Best Buy puts it on sale (I have a $100 gift card). A flash might not be in budget for the trip, but I'm trying to make it happen.

Now where do I put all my gear to carry around in? I've been looking at the Lowepro sling 100, but can't really tell if it'll fit my stuff. It also has a slip on the side which looks like I could shove 1 of my tripod legs there to hold my tripod. I don't want to carry something too bulky, but at the same time want to bring what I might need,that why I've been looking into the sling 100 and not the 200. Also I don't see myself having more than 3 lenses (including 1 on the body) and a flash. I also want to make sure that I'd be able to fit the charger and filters/lenses in this bag. Does anyone have this bag to give some first hand experiences with it?

Thanks again for all the great info!!

Anthony,
I've been looking at the Lowepro Sling bags as well. I haven't bought one yet but I thought that the sling 100 wouldn't be quite big enough for a camera, 2 or 3 lenses, flash, extra batteries, memory cards, filters, etc. Does anyone know if all that fits without having to sit on the top of it to close
Scott

I went to Samy's camera today and compared the sling 100 and 200 side by side... I think I'll be picking up the sling 200 when my wallet allows it. Basically I think the 100 would be stuffed with my camera, charger/cords, batteries, filters, and future 55-200 lens & flash + gels. I'd like to have the extra room for a 3rd lens and anything else I might like to bring.

I just picked up the sb600 and I've only used the basic features so far and I wonder why I didn't get this when I bought the camera. Flashes are definitely needed for indoor shooting and I have been asked to shoot a baptism for my girlfriends sister, so I had to get the flash first.

This NAS is really kicking in... and I love it!

Hi,

a cleaning kit is definitely needed. As far as the must haves, everyone is different and has different needs. Your interest will dictate what you need. For example, if you like taking landscape pictures then you probably could use a wide lens.

Nevertheless, since you mention that buying another lens is not in the agenda at the moment, then I would say get a tripod, cleaning kit and wireless remote for your Hawaii trip

I have a tripod, but still need to get a cleaning kit and the wireless remote (Thanks for the reminder -- as I've forgotten very important items as those). The wireless remote will work out great with the tripod for taking pictures with more than an arms length view.

I'm really tempted to put a wide angle lens on my credit card, especially after looking at some sample pictures on flickr.com...

Thanks for everyones input!!!

If so, then I would suggest Sigma 10-20mm. I am currently rebuilding my lenses. I have D50 18-70mm and 70-200mm. I will sell these two and buy 3 lenses.
I have bought 50mm AFD 1.4 and planning to get 18-200mm VR and Sigma 10-20mm.
