Nikon D200

PC Magazine
11 January 2008
  • Conclusion: The D200's speedy performance and unique features make it a powerful D-SLR worthy of an Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: New wireless flash system can fire the built-in strobe. Great performance and picture quality.
  • Cons: Expensive. Price is body only, no lens. Heavy. Some features are too complicated for beginners.

Nikon D200 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
19 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The design of this dSLR, like most of the semi-professional cameras, consists of rubberized magnesium weather-sealed body, with a good hand grip, plenty of space for an accurate viewfinder and a pop-up powerful flash and lots of buttons at the back. The colors, contrast and sharpness taken by Nikon D200 are great if you have some more advanced photography knowledge to manually adjust white balance, exposure, aperture and shutter speed.

  • Conclusion: The Nikon D200 is a very good camera and anybody making the switch from a (high-end) film camera to digital should consider it. Take a look at the image quality, decide if it makes sense financially (don't forget extra lenses, memory etc.) and take into account that the low operating cost of digital encourages to capture more, experiment more.

Nikon D200

  • Summary: As expected the D200's image quality is superb with the advanced metering and AF system combining well (albeit with an odd slight underexposure on some shots). We didn't get many bad shots with this baby. Colour balance and detail are crisply rendered, and tht's despite the Nikkor 18-70 F3.5-F4.5 DX kit lens being more a budget option. This means that more serious optics will start to pull even more from the camera’s high-resolution sensor.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, excellent ergonomics, design and control layout, great menu system, good combination of customisable controls and custom shooting options.
  • Cons: Default sharpening level is low, intrusive image noise over ISO 1600.

DP Review
16 June 2007
  • Conclusion: 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 name. From a design, build, features and performance point of view this camera really creates its own niche, it would be a pity to label it as 'semi-pro' because in use you soon realize that it's a professional camera.
  • Pros: 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 second continuous shooting, fast 'smart buffering', Eleven point AF system, fast and accurate, Good dynamic range, conservative metering, smart auto tone selection, More conservative, film-like appearance to images (...
  • Cons: 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 adjustments with little latitude, Disappointing automatic white balance performance under artificial light, Some cameras affected by vertical banding issues, No RAW adjustment with supplied Picture Project, only simple c...

  • Conclusion: Nikon D200 SLR camera 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 D200 offers a tremendous amount of options, settings and features for its price and it is therefore more than likely that a large amount of professional photographers will purchase the D200 as a second...

  • Excerpt: You’ve probably been asking yourself recently, “How can I tell if the Nikon D200 digital camera is the one for me?” This technology review attempts to provide you with enough information to make an intelligent purchase decision, by learning in detail about the camera and its systems. Is the 6+ megapixels of the Nikon D50, Nikon D70, and D100 D-SLR insufficient for my needs? Can I afford the $800 to $1200 USD over the cost of those above cameras?

Nikon D200

Photoxels
20 November 2006
  • Summary: The Nikon D200 DSLR is a (relatively) affordable professional-grade DSLR. Sized and priced similar to the Nikon D100 that it replaces, it is closer to the professional Nikon D2X in features and image quality. The Nikon D200 has more customizations than the average photographer would ever need but if you have specialized photographic needs, you will want the extensive customization settings and exposure flexibility available.

16 August 2006
  • Excerpt: When Nikon announced the release of the D200 in November 2005, I'm sure the company did not anticipate the same sort of consumer and professional buying rush that happened with the release of its enormously popular D70 in 2004. Early on, Nikon pundits and the photography press in general styled the release of the 10.2 megapixel D200 as a successor to the D100, the four year old semi-professional camera which had become a wee bit long in the tooth compared to competition...
  • Pros: There is everything to like about the D200 and little or nothing to dislike. Fully compatible with almost every modern SLR lens ever made by Nikon, and you can even use some really old lenses too although you'll have to do manual exposure metering and adjustments. I can produce excellent shots with every lens in my arsenal. Despite the vast feature and control set built into the camera, getting up and running requires little more than inserting a charged battery and a...
  • Cons: I expect Nikon to have all of its D200 retailers stocked at normal levels by November 2006 which is a full year after the release. Canon no doubt wishes it had this problem, but Nikon nonetheless did a terrible job of anticipating sales volume. It's all well and good to build sales and market pressure for a desirable product, but two and three month delivery waits were clearly a mistake which motivated some people to reconsider and buy competitors' products.
