"Does the D50 (body only) come with a memory card?"



          

I am in the process of buying a D50 (body only) from an online store and they are telling be it does not come with a memory card. Is this true?

That is true. You have to buy an SD card. I recommend one of the faster ones from Sandisk, in 500MB to 1GB size. They run about $80-90 for the Ultra II 1GB, and $105-115 for the Extreme III 1GB.

You can get slower, less expensive cards if you don't plan to shoot continuous very often.

OK, thanks. The camera is for my wife for photos of the kids and what not. Will the less expensive (slower speed) 500MB cards be sufficient for her. She won't be taking a series of rapid continous photos.

It depends what you want. I've got a 66x card and an old 10x card. On best JPGs the fast one gets around 12/14 shots before it slows and the slow one around 11, ie not much difference. After that the slow one is slower but the difference is not that great

On Raw files it's 4 at speed and then it slows down with both cards but the slow card is really slow after that, it's the only time I've noticed a worthwhile difference (it really does feel like an age but that's my impatience I guess lol)

I've read, but can't confirm, that the camera itself can't operate at more than 40x. Maybe somebody knows more about that.
