Nikon's D200 10.2 megapixel D-SLR is (finally) official


So, the long wait is almost over. Nikon finally got around to announcing their much anticipated D200 D-SLR digicam today as the rumor mill predicted. Specs and snaps had been leaking like CCD epoxy over the last few months so it's nice to finally...

Fast and powerful ; Improved menu navigation


The D200 is fast, powerful, and beautiful. Menu navigation has improved, and you can add GPS location info to your photos.

Nikon D200


Media Format: CompactFlash, Type: D-SLR, Maximum Resolution: 3872 x 2592 pixels, Megapixels: 10.2

New wireless flash system can fire the built-in strobe. Great performance and picture quality.

Expensive. Price is body only, no lens. Heavy. Some features are too complicated for beginners.

The D200's speedy performance and unique features make it a powerful D-SLR worthy of an Editors' Choice.

Nikon D200 Review


The Nikon D200 was announced on 1st November 2005, some three and a half years since Nikon revealed their first prosumer digital SLR, the D100. It's fair to say however that the D200 is a completely different beast altogether, it shares far more with...

Excellent resolution, although not a huge 'step up' from eight megapixels Compact body design which has a true pro feel, build and feature set Instant power on, very responsive, very short black-out time, very fast media write Excellent five frames per...

Higher noise at ISO 1600 and 3200 than we would like, mostly in shadows High ISO noise reduction works but at the expense of detail Default sharpness is too mild, first impression to a new user may be negative Insufficient number of image parameter...

When it was announced in November last year the D200 caused quite stir (and not just in the Nikon camp). It was clear from the start that about the only thing this camera shared with its official predecessor (the D100) was the Nikon badge and it's '00...

Nikon D200 review


The Nikon D200, a long-awaited successor to the company's D100, offers serious amateur photographers and value-minded professionals a compact, sub-$2,000 digital SLR with many of the specifications, features, and build characteristics of Nikon's...

Plentiful controls and accessories; strong performance; excellent image quality; rugged body.

JPEG artifacts crimp image quality; no TIFF mode.

An excellent midrange digital SLR, the D200 has given way to its even better successor, the D300. However, it remains a great choice if you can find it at a good price.

Nikon D200


The Nikon D200 Digital SLR Camera combines an impressive list of pro-class features in a model that is much less expensive than the Nikon D2X. But because you get what you pay for, there are always pros and cons to the D200. Some of the problems in the...

Nikon D200 review


Nikon isn't exactly known for renewing their assortment of camera models at amazing speed. Yet whenever they make a new introduction, you can rest assured it'll being something extraordinarily special. Take the Nikon D200 for example, a camera that...

Nikon likes to get the job done to its fullest extend, a fact that once again becomes more than apparent with the Nikon D200. The Nikon D200 is a top D-SLR, one that will without doubt cause relentless unease in the minds of the competition. The Nikon...

Nikon D200 Digital Camera - Full Review - The Imaging Resource!


Exceptional build quality, very rugged chassis with full environmental sealing ; Excellent resolution (but only a modest step up from 8 megapixels) ; Essentially zero sharpening artifacts, images take post-processing unusually well ; Supports Nikon...

Strong anti-aliasing filter and very conservative in-camera sharpening makes for soft images straight from the camera ; In-camera sharpening produces sharpening artifacts when it's increased enough to produce sharper-looking JPEGs ; High-ISO...

In our testing and evaluation of it, the Nikon D200 consistently impressed us with its ruggedness (including full environmental seals, a first on a camera selling for less than $4,000), excellent user interface, exceptional feature set, and sure-footed...
