A solid camera and a real workhorse. I have had his camera since March of 2008 and I have found it to be a great investment. I use my camera several times a week and it has never failed me. I mad the progression from a D-100 to the D-200 and I never looked back. December 26, 2013
One Fantastic Camera I just acquired this 4 year old Nikon D200 in like new condition with less than 7200 shots. First thing I noticed was the feel. This camera is heavy, rubberized and built like a tank. All the controls are neatly arranged. I find this camera a pleasure to use and do not regret buying. I use the Nikon 28mm~105mm F3.5~4.5 lens for some of the clearest photos I have ever taken. I am like a kid with a new toy. I will enjoy this camera for years to come. NICE WORK NIKON! March 24, 2013
Excellent Camera I've used this camera for over 2 1/2 years now. It's always been accurate never failed on me. This Camera is very reliable when you need it it will always do it's job. March 10, 2013
Dependable shooter but falls short at high ISO's Super dependable body that has a solid feel (unlike the plastic bodies). I also love the weather seals, as I reside in the Pacific Northwest where it rains...ALOT! I bought this as a step up from the Nikon D70s, and have not been disapointed for one minute. The controls are straight forward, the menu is easy to use, and the duel use buttons make AF/AE locks very easy to access. The image overlay ability is really cool too. My only complaints are the high noise at settings over 400 ISO, and the super quick battery drain. However, a good tripod, fast glass, and a few extra charged batteries on hand fix those issues enough for me. I also found the built in flash just didn't make it, so I added the SB-700. - great choice! I would recommend this body to anyone looking for a great DSLR at a good price - $450.00 to $500.00 on ebay November 18, 2012
Wonderful Radio I bought this camera 2 months ago and it is very very accurate and reliable (used in every condition). The worst thing (acceptable for the age and the sensor type) has a not excellent behavior at High ISO. BEST VALUE FOR MONEY! September 16, 2012

Hello, I would like to take 5 photos set at -2, -1, 0, +1, +2. I can easily set this up but is there a way to have the camera take all 5 pictures in a row by just pressing the shutter release once? I don't want to have to press the shutter release 5 times to take these 5 pictures.

Answer: 
You have to press the shutter 5 times or you can set the camera in continuous but you will need to hold the shutter button down until it takes the 5 pictures.

Once you have your bracketing set put the camera in continuous shooting and just press and hold the shutter button, it will take all bracketed images in one go.

I have the same problem and am using an "approved" memory card (SDCFX (Extreme III) 4 GB). The card has been in use for quite some time. After image download to computer, the card has been routinely reformatted in-camera.

You can set this up yourself by going to the setup menu (with the little wrench icon) and adding a commentary line to your photos. I have it set to add my e-mail address in stead of my serial number though.

Answer: 
Nikon does not disclose camera API code, but you'll find a lot about if you do an Internet search. As to controlling the D200 from a computer, you have the $180 Nikon Camera Control Pro 2, and, again with some Internet search, you'll find several third party software that will provide you with some camera control functionality - some of them even for free - although I don't know of any that gives you absolute full control as the NCCP does.

Answer: 
1) The D200 shares the basics with most dSLRs. The instruction manual is probably the best start. If you like to read, several intermediate and advanced books about the D200 are available at most online book stores. If you prefer more intuitive tutorials, there are literally *hundreds* if you search the web for "d200 tutorials". Last - but not least -, try to learn one item at a time, try it on the camera, take notes, and only then move on to a different subject. I may suggest you start learning the 6 most important settings: autofocus (continuous and single; focusing area), diaphragm aperture (depth of field control, diffraction control, best sharpness point), shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. After these, complete your knowledge with flash usage (specially the different shutter syncs available). Enjoy the process!

2) It's a fairly old camera, made way before digitutor was released. Since it's been discontinued for almost four years now, I don't believe Nikon will put the effort (and the cost) of developing one.

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
Hello I have Nikon D200 Body and I just bought the NIKKOR 50mm f1.8D lens. I noticed the camera don't let me use the aperture ring for setting the f-stop. I get an error. I have to use the lens with the apeture ring locked at f22 then I can use the lens in any mode. Is there a way to set the camera up so I can use the aperture ring to set the f-stop. If I am in manual mode and try to use the aperture ring to set f-stop I get a error and can not set the shutter speed. Is it normal to have to use this lens with the ring locked? Im sorry I am having a hard time trying to figure out what I am asking. The lenss works fine if it is locked at f22. I was just was wondering if I can use the aperture ring to set f-stop.
Thanks for your time.

Answer: 
You can use the aperture ring. Go into Menu > f Controls > Command Dial > Aperture Setting and set it to "Aperture Ring". Now the lens aperture ring will determine the f stop just like the old days.

Answer: 
No you cant use the aperture ring to set aperture, it has to be locked at f22 so that the camera sets aperture not the lens. If you had an older film camera then you would be able to use the ring.
