Self Portrait with the Nikon D50
This was my first dSLR, at the time I actually wanted a Canon 30D, but then my hot water system broke, forcing me to cut the budget. I tried the cheaper Canon 300D (called "Digital Rebel" in the USA and "KISS Digital" in Japan), but it wasn't to my liking. When a friend of mine won a photo competition with his new Nikon D50, I decided to try it and I was hooked. I walked to the camera shop and bought one for myself. I sold this camera after two years and upgraded to the Nikon D80.
