    Could someone explain what the difference is? I have been looking front to back in the D-50 Manual, and it doesn't explain it at all. TIA!

    This might help;

    Autofocus (AF-A, AF-S, AF-C) - in AF-S mode, the camera locks focus when you halfway press the shutter release; in AF-C mode, the camera continues to focus even while the button is held down; the AF-A mode switches between the two automatically depending on the situation
