Hello All,

 

I'm introducing myself to the photography, trying now to learn more and have some fun. For that I'm searching for a reasonable camera for a newbie as me.

 

My main interest are the night shots,timelapses, long exposure. Can you give me some suggestions about the best camera I can get with a budget around 500$? 

 

Thank you in advance.

N50 was called F50 outside the US market. It is an entry-level camera that doesn't even have any way of tripping the shutter remotely. You can use any 35 mm 135 form factor film that has the metal squares for identifying the film speed. I don't remember if you can set the ISO manually, if that is the case you can use any 135 film, even home-loaded cartridges.

As timelapse seems to be a main interest, it would be a good idea to look for a used D7000 upwards body as they have a built-in intervalometer. For night shots, an old D600 or D610 would be even better as the FX sensors show less noise and has a bigger dynamic range when ISO goes up. The FX consumer and prosumer bodies have three-digit model designations as does the D300 and D500. They are all higher in the hierarchy than the D7xxx range.
