A look at the D50's menus
The Nikon D50 and the D70s have tidied-up menu screens with a more easy on the eye yellow, black and grey colour scheme.
Navigation is quite straightforward and as you can see below, there are some nice touches to round-off the menu system nicely. Menu navigation proved to be quick and instant, with little confusion or mis-keying, though the image annotation feature is rather long-winded to use.
The available options are sometimes very sophisticated for a camera that is probably going to be bought by less ambitious photographers, but it's good news for keen photographers unable to stretch to a D70.
We'll investigate the D50 menu options in greater depth when we review the camera fully.
The new menus mainly use shades of
yellow and grey and some green.
