You know, this little old camera (Nikon P50 still) doesn't perform at all reliably, and frankly, framing with the marginal LCD isn't fun (the little viewfinder is even worse) - but if it works, the images are really surprisingly nice. This is from a 1/2.5" 8MP CCD sensor ...

Found a battery that held some charge that fitted in the Digilux today so took it on a walk.
As with previous posts these are shot in JPEG & apart from a straighten or crop in iphoto they have not been altered at all, no sharpening or contrast tweaks or anything else.
I will apologise in advance for most of the shots being a bit "samey" to some posted previously but i did want to evaluate the D2 against newer cameras.
i shot the inside pics at Max ISO 400. They are pretty noisy but people like the D2 noise as they say it's grain like...
i guess i'm too used to modern, clean output as i'm not too keen on it. Foolishly i didn't try the same shots at ISO100 as i didn't change settings again til i went outside :whistling:

Now please remember this is a 5mpx camera from 2004 so its a technological dinosaur however the lens is really good & those grey tones are to die for..
This first one is SOOC, no cropping no anything, exactly as shot..

Yeah it's a nice old thing. it looks great. Real oldtime Leica rangefinder looks but as long as you manage your expectations & keep it sensible it can still deliver some very nice images.
it's a bit slow to operate & needs good light so i guess i should treat it much like a classic car.
Only take it out on a sunny day when you're in no hurry :drinks:

Taken the other day, strolling around the downtown business area of a small Oregon town - where the owner of an automotive transmission repair shop has come up with an ingenious way to advertise his business.
