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

D-200 all manual settings, SB-600, SB-800, or SB-900 used in manual remote. I think using two button reset of D-200 fixes it, but on the job site, that takes time to set camera all up again.

I have read the manual and recognize that separate flash units can be used but maybe only certain products. In the meantime, I'm also suspicious it might be me and simple programming.

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
Hello all. I have a Nikon D200 and I am wondering if anyone has used a split ring focus screen from a old Nikon 35mm film camera. I would like to use a cats eye split ring focus screen from a old 35mm Nikon film camera. if anyone has used the focus screen from 35mm Nikon film camera and installed it in a Nikon D200 I would like to know what Nikon 35mm film camera I can get the focus screen out of and install it in my Nikon D200. I know I can buy one for the D200 but I want to scavenge one from a film camera. So if anyone has done this please tell me which 35mm Nikon film camera that the focus screen will work from. Thank you so much and Happy Holidays.

Answer: 
Changing the camera focus screen is very easy. the are many online video that shows how its done. However, the focus sceen from your old film camera is highly unlikely to fit in the DSLR. I surggest you check kats eye site for more info.

Answer: 
do you mean a brand new battery, or a newly charged one? if it's still your original battery, it probably should be replaced by now. if it is a new battery, your charger probably needs to be replaced. if the camera is coming on and firing off shots, more than likely it's okay.

I am not a photographer had this since 2008 and thought maybe I should learn how to use it. I was told the camera is to old, what other smaller camera would I be able to use these accessories with? and is there a underwater casing for it? I probably like to to videos of my grandson racing and ocean shots and lots of still pictures probably very wide and close pictures. What could anyone recommend?

Answer: 
No, it is not really an error message, it is informational. The r11 means you have 11 exposures left till the buffer is full.You are shooting long exposure and probably have the long exposure noise reduction on. Don't worry about it.
