A spokesman for Nikon said that the user manual was uploaded in error and that he can't tell when the camera will be launched. But it will be in a not-too-distant future.
Nikon would not reveal any of the D50's specifications and features. But the D50 is one of several new digital SLR models that the company is planning to release following the success of the popular D70 model that went on sale in March 2004, Enomoto said.The company sold approx. 1 million Nikon D70 camera's between March 2003 and this February.
"We are now developing a full range of new models from the top-end to popularly-priced models, but we can't say anything more now," he said.
