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 could not however meter with non-CPU lenses.

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