Have had the P50 for a few months, and taken over a 1000 shots in a variety of conditions. My comments:

1) The photos.
The camera uses the smallest chip around 1:1/2.5 - don't know what that means, just that it's Very small. With 8m pixels crammed on this sensor, low light non-flash shots are quite noisy. However, flash shots are near enough perfect, distance and close up outdoor shots also give good detail. Usable dynamic range across highlights and shadows - Managed to keep the balance in bright outdoor shots without blowing out the blue sky or plunging the shaded foreground into gloom.

All photos benefit with a bit of sharpening in photoshop (Pics straight out of camera are a little soft, which is a Nikon P series trait apparantly), but still perfectly usable straight out the unit. Exposure hard to fool, but white balance you need to keep an eye on (especially in custom, which if combined with flash gets you a blue hued photo). Overall very pleased with picture quality.

2) The design.
Easy to hold, looks good finished in all-black. Slightly slimmer and feels better put together than the Canon A570IS (4x zoom but no wide-angle). Uses AA batteries - sucks them dry quite quickly so recommend getting decent rechargeables as soon as you can. Looks a bit like it's elder siblings P5000/P5100 from the front, round the screen back it has a more conventional layout - most functions easily accessed through a combination of the rotating dial at the top of the camera (different modes) and the menu key on the back, which depending on the mode you're using gives you access to a wide range of set-up options.

Menu system not totally intuitive, but makes a good stab at it.

Have had the P50 for a couple of weeks now, and taken a couple hundred shots in a variety of conditions. My comments:

1) The photos.
The camera uses the smallest chip around 1:1/2.5 - don't know what that means, just that it's Very small. With 8m pixels crammed on this sensor, low light non-flash shots are quite noisy. But this is compared to a fuji f31fd which has to be the best low light p&s around, so maybe I'm spoilt. If it's dark, use the flash - flash shots are near enough perfect (and flash intensity can be fine tuned too), distance and close up outdoor shots also give good detail. Handles highlights quite well and brings out detail in shadows. Managed to keep the balance in bright outdoor shots without blowing out the blue sky or plunging the shaded foreground into gloom. All photos benefit with a bit of sharpening in photoshop, but still perfectly usable straight out the unit. Exposure hard to fool, but white balance you need to keep an eye on (especially in custom, which if combined with flash gets you a blue hued photo).

a brief non-technical review- we bought this camera because we are both artists looking for a pocket sized notebook/travel camera. After three nikon digital cameras this one was a welcome replacement- it ticks all the boxes- it's light, but feels solid, good positive dial functions and a very nice layout. good screen size and easy menu, fantastic crop function means it doesn't stop being creative when the picture has been taken. The simple anti-shake allows clear photos even when flash isn't allowed or appropriate. Easy batteries-AA rechargeables, or emergency from any corner shop. Wide angle lens for landscape. stunning macro. Great large scale prints, no purple fringing,
It looks like a camera, it works very hard, it feels as if it will carry on for as long as we need it, and print quality is what we expect from nikon. At this price I plan to buy another, because we don't want to share.

Verified Purchase
Love the camera. Great value.
It is a basic camera but is reliable to do great shots of my daughter.
I just didn't like how blown up on the computer it can expose wrinkles and stray grey hairs in detail!
ONE WORD ON THE RECOMMENDED SAN DISK 1GB MEMORY CARD - THE CAMERA REJECTS IT, DO NOT BUY. AMAZON HAVE BEEN ADVISED BUT THEY HAVE NOT REMOVED IT AS A RECOMMENDED BUY WITH THE ITEM AND AS IT IS BOUGHT THROUGH MARKETPLACE I LOST MY P+P COSTS
