Summary: I bought a D200 new many years ago (when released). I have been reluctant to upgrade, despite been able to do so. It still goes strong, is a workhorse and can print large without problems. It feels more robust that some newer models. How many more megapixels you need?
Summary: Nikon D200 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) I bought this camera used after my D40 was stuck at Nikon repair factory for an extended length of time due I think to lack of parts from the tragedies in Japan. It is a great camera.
Summary: If you are not an academic photographer who reads the manual studiously,and then obediently practises what you have read to reinforce what you have learnt, then these cards are the way to go, because it's when you are out there actually taking photos that you need prompts.
Summary: This is a backup camera to my D200. I wanted something that I could travel with better and wasn't quite as expensive. This camera is very small and much lighter than my D200 and will be much easier to tote around. I just got it a few hours ago.
Pros: Flawless camera! I was surprised when I opened the box and didn't see a single scratch, mark, etc on the camera anywhere. As far as I'm concerned, this thing is new.
Cons: Only a 90 day warranty. I wish Nikon offered a minimum of 6 months, but for this price, I am willing to take the risk.
Summary: over all, If someone is looking into getting into photography, this is the least expensive way. NIkon means quality and the lenses are compatible with most nikons, so you are really deciding on the brand here. I would say Canon is a bit better, but outrageously priced, so the choice is up to you.
Pros: This is a pro camera and I can't believe there are any of these bad boys left. You have to have a good understanding of dslrs for this bad boy, but is you do and are in the market for a dslr you can't beat the price point.
Cons: You need the nikon motorized lenses to do autofocus, so figure on dropping 300 on a good lense, but if your serious enough to buy a Dslr you know they are an investment. Also there is no live view, but I rarely use it, so no biggie,
Summary: I picked up a new 18-105 VR AFS Nikon lens from the D90 kit. You can get a great deal on these lenses and they come with a five year warranty. This camera/lens combo is phenominal. Get this camera at this price before it's gone.
Pros: This camera is absolutely perfect for the serious novice photographer. Takes amazing pics, simple to use, everything you need and nothing you don't need. It has most of the photographic technology of the D60 with the simple user controls of the D40 - perfect
Cons: None if you know what you're getting. Yes it requires AFS lenses, and no it doesn't do everything a D700 does, for this price - are you kidding?
Summary: I can't emphasize enough how solid this camera is. I love shooting the newer, lower-priced DSLRs; live view and all of that is nice. But they'll feel like toys once you've shot this one. It's build to last, and will do nearly everything that an amateur will ask it to, and do it well.
Pros: I shoot a lot - landscapes, wildlife and portraits - and this camera has served me well. There are many DSLRs that you'll see with lower prices or slightly better specs in one area or another, but you won't find a better all-around camera at this price point. Yes, they're recertified, but you're ...
Cons: You really see noise at speeds over 800 ISO. It's usable sometimes at 1000 or 1250, where the noise resembles film grain to my eye, but I've never saved a shot at 1600 or higher. Of course, to get much better you'd have to move up to the phenomenal D300 or 5D and spend a lot more. Nikon glass is ...
