Digital SLRs: Nikon D200

Nikon D200 digital SLR camera
Main FeaturesExceptional imaging performance
  • Newly developed 10.2 effective megapixel Nikon DX Format CCD image sensor with the power to capture exceptional sharpness and faithful colour at 3,872 x 2,592 pixels size. Incorporates high-speed 4-channel data output that contributes to 5fps continuous shooting performance and employs a newly developed Optical Low Pass Filter that helps prevent moiré, colour fringing and shifting while improving resolving power.

  • Incorporates the industry-leading advanced imaging processing engine of the D2x, which allows colour-independent pre-conditioning prior to A/D conversion to work in symphony with advanced digital image processing algorithms to achieve fine colour gradations with exceptionally smooth, consistent transitions.

  • Newly developed 11-area AF system packs the same number of focus areas available for the professional D2 series into a space-efficient system, with the photographer able to select individual focus areas from 11-area wide and 7 wide-area AF for Single Area AF, Dynamic AF that delivers precise Continuous servo AF mode operation for moving subjects, Closest Subject Priority Dynamic AF and also Group Dynamic AF. All these AF options are supported by refined lens-controlling algorithms that realize improved focus precision, better subject acquisition capability, keener subject tracking ability and overall improved system response. 

  • 3D Colour Matrix Metering II (AE) – as used in the D2x – delivers optimized exposure through the use of new technology developed for the Nikon 1,005-pixel RGB exposure/Colour Matrix Metering Sensor. Evaluating brightness, colour, contrast, selected focus area and camera-to-subject distance, this system references all such data against an expanded onboard database that has been created using data from more than 30,000 actual photographic scenes to instantly and accurately calculate the final value with high-level dependability during both automatic and manual operation. Also offers variable size centre-weighted metering which concentrates 75% of sensitivity within the centre-weighted circle, as well as spot metering supporting each individual sensor of both the 7 wide-area AF and 11-area AF groups. 

  • New image optimization modes enable photographers to produce results more closely matching the intended results, with a range of choice comprising optimization of sharpening, tone (contrast), colour, saturation, and hue, with choices from Normal, Softer, Vivid, More vivid, Portrait, Custom and Black-and-white optimization.

Impressively high speed

  • Near instant power-up of 0.15 seconds lets photographers respond to sudden opportunities.

  • A mere 50-millisecond shutter time lag promotes fast handling, while 105-millisecond viewfinder blackout realizes assured control that’s especially useful during continuous shooting.

  • Swift continuous shooting performance at 5 frames per second enables the shooting of up to 37 JPEG (Fine-Large) images* or up to 22 NEF (RAW) images*, with shutter speeds ranging from 1/8,000 of a second to 30 seconds.
*When using a SanDisk SDCFH (Ultra II) or SDCFX (Extreme III) 1GB CF card.
