"RE: D50 Sharpness"

Hello Brian

Thank you for your in depth response.

I do understand your comments and in my very next shoot I will boost the ISO and try using the EV more.

As for the camera holding technique the handshake is as bad as you can imagine. With my advancing years (71) I have more than my share of unsteady hands, that is why the tripod or solid support on a wall or post is a godsend. Without support or leaning on something for support, my free shot from when I focus and shoot to preview could be half a frame adrift.

I do appreciate your help and I would like to think it is evident
in the results so far.

You have improved my work considerably in a relatively short time which has brought me into the frame for producing the best the D50 can do. I suppose the professional would know the limits of his camera and work within those limits.

I could not juustify the expenditure on the magnificent D3 or close equivalent but I think I can swing the D700 past my wife.

As you have been a top flight photographer for sometime can you remember when the D50 was state of the art? This was before my time as a photographer (and I use the term loosely). Were the photographs then an improvement on what had gone before?

Once again, thank you.

Kindest regards

Philip
