The nifty fifty orginally was coined to mean the 50 companies on the New York Stock Exchange that were considered to be a good long term investment in the 1960s and 1970s. Since then, it has come to be applied to anything with 50 in its name.
e.g. Nifty Fifty Health Walks (for the over 50s), the Nifty Fifty Club (featuring rock and roll from the 50s), Nifty Fifty Fundraising Campaign ( give 50 pounds each to a charity) 
If describing a camera, it will mean a fantastic camera with a 50m.m. lens.etc. etc.
