The F50 (or N50 as it is known in North America) is a 35mm film SLR camera which was introduced by Nikon in 1994.[1] It was aimed at the lower-end of the amateur autofocus SLR market.

The F50 features autofocus, TTL light metering and various "programs" (ranging from manual operation to a highly-automated point and shoot mode).

It was replaced by the similarly-priced F60 (also known as the N60) in 1998.

History[edit]

A variant known as the F50D or N50D, which added a date/time-imprinting facility and also panoramic mode.

Design[edit]

The F50 body was made from polycarbonate and metal, and available in both "champagne silver" and black.

Notable omissions include depth-of-field preview and any form of remote shutter release.
