DP Review
7 March 2009
  • Conclusion: The D200 was a big step forward for Nikon, the 'baby D2X' certainly gave the competition a thing or two to think about. Its big problem was the fact that Canon was still a generation ahead in the noise stakes, managing to consistently deliver clean images despite megapixel jumps.
  • Pros: Very good resolution and detail without looking over-processed, even up to ISO 1600, Better balanced noise reduction than most; more chroma NR, less luminance NR, High ISO 3200 perfectly usable (if slightly softer due to NR), ISO 6400 usable for small output, Highly configurable Auto ISO function...
  • Cons: No timed mirror lock-up function (could be automatic with self-timer), Non-articulating LCD (increases the usefulness of Live View considerably), Average automatic white balance performance, still very poor under incandescent light

  • Cons: Slight issues over white balance control, modest continuous shooting frame rate, otherwise not much else.

  • Conclusion: Nikon camras today have evolved into an ergnomic form that is similar in some ways to not just canon, but almost every other camera maker as well. The moulded hand grip, finger indentations, and soft rubber covering materials are all there.

Pop Photo
15 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Nikon could have played it safe. By just tweaking its highly rated D200, the company could have come out with a camera priced closer to Canon's new 10.1MP EOS 40D ($1,300, street, body only).

  • Conclusion: The D300 is a strong successor to the D200. The D300 maintains all of the D200's advantages as an excellent general-purpose, prosumer DSLR and improves on several key areas. For about $3000 less, the D300 offers Nikon's current best AF module, which is also featured in their top professional model,...
