"Passed 50,000 clicks on my D50"


Tallahassee, Florida, US
          

I feel my D50 has passed a bit of a milestone as I just went past 50,000 shutter actuations. I think the D50 was "tested to" 50,000 actuations, or something like that.

I've never had any problems with the camera, but it does make me wonder how much longer the camera will go, and that maybe I'm living on borrowed time with it. I do have a D300 as a "backup," but I still use my D50 a lot, and for most purposes I feel the results from the two cameras are indistinguishable. Even though the D50 is a few generations behind the state-of-the-art, it is still a fabulous camera!

Randy

Congrats on the shutter count! If you are on borrowed time, at least in this case you will not have to pay it back. Since you already have a backup camera, you will be able to keep shooting when if the D50 gives up the ghost.

Thanks, Joseph. I can't take a lot of credit here myself, because all I did was press that little button 50,000 times. But the camera certainly has given me my money's worth. Not only has it been completely reliable (knock on wood!), it's been a great performer too.

You are so correct the D50 was my first DSLR and it is still one great camera, my daughter uses it now! Never needed a firmware update to fix anything since it worked right out of the box!

Congrats on the 50,000 milestone and heres looking to another 50,000!!!!!

My D50 went to about 120,000 clicks before I developed a problem with a sensor. Just had it repaired as a back up to my D300

Wow! I'm not sure I'd have mine repaired if it failed at this point. I do love the camera though. How much did it cost to fix? And, did you get a new shutter? Seems surprising that the shutter could go to 120,000 actuations.
