Nikon D200 digital SLR

Nikon have introduced their new feature-packed D200 digital SLR camera. Combining the solid look and feel and advanced camera operation of Nikons D2 professional series with the approved user-friendliness and image quality that are the hallmarks of all Nikon digital SLRs.

Solid look and feel

The D200 boasts a lightweight, yet durable and robust magnesium alloy body and an advanced sealing system that protects the camera from moisture and dust, making it suitable for a range of rigorous and challenging assignments. The integrated double-bladed shutter, which incorporates a refined mirror balance system, has been tested to well in excess of 100,000 cycles.

Advanced operation

The D200s camera operation is inherited from the Nikon D2x, and boasts more than 40 well organised custom settings, so it is ideally suited to the users needs and preferences. The large, bright viewfinder offers a great 0,94x magnification and 95% frame coverage both horizontally and vertically to guarantee exceptionally detailed viewing control.

A 2.5 inch high resolution LCD screen provides an ultra-wide 170 viewing angle from all directions. Images on the D200 can be magnified by up to 400% so users can check for fine detail, adding to the rich and varied experience.

The top LCD panel is the largest in the industry, containing a wealth of data such as shooting mode, battery condition, card information, gridline display, shutter speed, F stop and shots remaining. A new colour-coded menu display facilitates easy viewing, supported by intuitive keywords to assist speedy navigation.

The newly-developed high-energy EN-EL3e rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers enough power to the D200 to support the shooting of up to 1,800 images on a single charge, which takes no longer than 2.5 hours. Battery status can be checked through a real-time fuel gauge system, found in the menu. An optional MB-D200 battery pack extends shooting capability, using AA-size batteries (six are needed) or two NE-EL3es.

Ultimate shooting experience

The D200 is ideal for capturing unexpected or fleeting moments, thanks to the 0.15 second power-up, a speedy shutter lag time of just 50 milliseconds and a shortened viewfinder blackout time of 105 milliseconds.

The D200 is also capable of ultra high-speed continuous shooting of five frames per second, capturing up to 37* pictures in JPEG or 22* in RAW format. A newly developed and highly flexible Multi - CAM1000 Autofocus features a pinpoint 11-area AF system inherited from Nikon D2 series as well as a 7-wide area AF to focus on larger moving objects easily.

*When using a SanDisk SDCFH (Ultra II) or SDCFX (Extreme III) 1GB CF card.

Another feature inherited from the D2X is the 3D-Colour Matrix Metering II, which delivers optimised exposure using new technology developed for the Nikon 1,005 pixel RGB exposure/Colour Matrix Metering sensor. This system evaluates seven parameters in every shot including brightness, colour, contrast, selected focus area, camera-to-subject distance - and references this data against an on-board database of over 30,000 actual photographic scenes to instantly and accurately calculate the final value.

Professional results

A fundamental feature of the D200 is a newly developed 10.2 effective megapixel Nikon DX Format CCD image sensor that captures high level sharpness and colour at 3,872 x 2,592 pixels size delivering the right resolution to support significant image enlargements and enable greater freedom for creative cropping. The highly sensitive new sensor covers an ISO range from 100 1600, rising to 3200 in Hi-1.

High speed image processing is inherited from the Nikon D2x, guaranteeing fine colour gradations and smooth transitions. A new Optical Low Pass Filter helps prevent moir, colour fringing and shifting to get even greater colours.

For added control, saturation and highlights of a shot can be controlled easily using the D200s RBG histograms on the LCD monitor.

In addition, new image optimisation modes enable D200 users to produce results that more closely match their intended results, with the ability to optimise sharpening, tone and contrast, colour, saturation and hue in choices including Softer, Normal, More vivid, Portrait and Black and White in-camera.

Unparalleled possibilities

Like all Nikon digital SLR cameras, the D200 is compatible with Nikons Total Imaging System which means it can be teamed with over 50 high quality AF Nikkor lenses, including renowned DX Nikkors as well as non-CPU lenses. It also opens up the creative possibilities that can achieved with Nikons Creative Lighting System thanks to a built-in i-TTL Speedlight which can serve as master in Advanced Wireless Lighting systems.

The D200 incorporates an x-Sync terminal to connect to studio lighting and features GPS support to record geographical data of the shot, as well as wireless functionality for image capture and transfer.


 

Nikon D200

Major features

Exceptional 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 moir, 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 thats 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.

Further versatility

Multiple exposure enables up to 10 separate images to be used to create a single composite to produce imaginative and even surreal results.

Image overlay function creates a composite image in-camera from two selected NEF (RAW) images. The original files remain unaltered, opacity can be precisely controlled and the resultant image can be saved in either RAW, JPEG or TIFF format.

Connection to a GPS (Global Positioning System) unit via an optionally available GPS Adapter Cord MC-35 enables the recording of data including latitude, longitude, elevation and UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) along with conventional shooting data for each image.

A large 2.5-inch LCD monitor with a 170 viewing angle from every direction assists accurate assessment of sharpness by enabling image preview with up to 400% magnification. It also offers RGB information as a single display or separate histograms for each colour channel to enable better exposure-related decision-making.

The large top LCD panel makes it easy to read a wealth of data at a glance, such as shooting mode, battery condition, card information, gridline display, shutter speed, F stop and number of remaining shots.

A new colour-coded menu display features a colour scheme that promotes easy viewing as well as the use of intuitive keywords that assist speedy navigation. Theres also a Recent Settings list that displays the last 14 settings selected from shooting and Custom menus and playback options include single frame, 4- or 9-image thumbnail display, zoom with scroll, histogram indication and highlight point display.

A chassis crafted from magnesium alloy gives the D200 lightweight resilience, while an enhanced sealing system helps protect each and every exterior seam from potentially damaging dust and moisture.

A double-bladed shutter unit tested to well over 100,000 cycles ensures highly reliable, highly durable performance. The shutter unit also employs a refined mirror balance mechanism that allows the mirror to complete its motion cycle and reach a complete stop with virtually no mirror bounce, providing the extended viewfinder visibility essential for fast, accurate focus tracking and continuous shooting.

The newly developed high-energy EN-EL3e rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers enough power to support the shooting of up to 1,800 images on a single charge, can be recharged at any time and features a handy real-time fuel gauge system display that shows remaining charge by percentage, number of shots since last charge and overall battery status.

The optionally available MB-D200 battery pack adds extended shooting capability with an ergonomic design. Able to run on either six AA-size batteries or two EN-EL3e batteries*, it also features an additional command dial and alternative buttons for shutter release and AF start that make for more comfortable vertical shooting.

* Compatible AA-size batteries comprise alkaline, NiMH, lithium and nickel-manganese batteries.

The Wireless Transmitter WT-3* adds all the convenience of IEEE802.11b/g capability, enabling cable-free image transfer to a compatible computer while also supporting wide-ranging network and security protocols for added assurance.

* Available only in countries that approve the use of thirteen frequency channels.

Compatible with Nikons Total Imaging System

Compatible with Nikons digital-exclusive DX Nikkor lenses as well as Nikons 35mm/digital compatible AF Nikkor System.

Compatibility with the Nikon Creative Lighting System allows the D200 to work seamlessly with SB-800, SB-600 and SB-R200 Speedlights to deliver the benefits of i-TTL flash controls advanced monitor pre-flash, accurate measurement for bounce and versatile wireless operation. SB-600 and SB-800 Speedlights also offer a Wide-Area AF-assist Illuminator specially tailored to the D200s 11-area Multi-CAM 1000 AF Sensor Module.

Nikon Capture 4 (Ver. 4.4) unlocks the extensive potential of NEF (Nikon Electronic Format). Not only does it make smoother fidelity for tonal and other colour corrections possible, but it also empowers photographers to reprocess images at any time and save the results to the original NEF file as a new Instruction Set, or as a TIFF or JPEG file, while retaining the integrity of the original data at all times.

PictureProject Ver. 1.6 (complimentary with camera) empowers the photographer with tools that help expand the enjoyment of photography. These include tools for Organizing the images to promote effective viewing, Automatic and manual options for image editing, Design selections that help make multi-image album and presentation pages, and tools to help photographers share images with others through CD/DVD burning, slide shows, muvee presentations and fast and effective e-mailing. In addition to helping anyone enjoy their pictures, PictureProject also provides the means to make sure that the computers hard drive wont turn into an electronic shoe box full of pictures instead they can be kept as neatly ordered as the user like.

Funnily I was thinking similar . . . . if only Nikon had seen that by making it full frame and cheaper than the 5D it would be 'The Camera to have'.

Instead IMO it looks (in spec) more of an improved 20D.

Not sure about comparisons with the 5D, but for the money it looks a lot better than a D2X - same build-quality but smaller, lighter, built-in flash and only marginally lower resolution. As a D2X owner, if I was buying again I'd go for the D200, from what I've read.

Nikon have stated that they have no plans to go full frame!
However, at the price it has still got to be the best offering on the market, or will be when it lands.

Canon's 20D replacement should be a stunner then. Problem with this camera, in my view, is that it should have come 1/2-a full year ago.

two things - the 5d will cost twice the price and is not environmentally sealed ... I don't fancy shelling out well over two grand for something that is not sealed ... the 5d is also noisier than the 20d according to the reviews I have seen ... so the d200 is looking slightly better than some of you say .... oh yes - I am a Canon man, so there is no Nikon bias here ...

"Versus the 5D, does anybody think this would be a competitor?"

The 5D costs twice as much, and is not so good for long range photography, but better for wide angle. The 5D viewfinder is described in reviews as poor. Phil askeyt described the D200 one as very good. Does it have MLU? And it looks like the D200 has better build. I'll take the D200. Leif

Why would the D200 be better than the 5D at 'long range'?? OK you might need to crop the 5D output to get the same result, but that is all.

Also, the 5D is not quite twice the price (now that prices are heading the right side of 2k).
The 5D viewfinder -should- be larger than the D200 (full frame).

Stating to make the switch to nikon look closer every day, Canon are pricing themselves out of the market, the 5d is twice the price and un usable outdoors in English winter weather,
If canon have not got a 20d replacment lined up to compete with Nikon very quickly, then canon have been caught well and truly with it's pant down !

If I hadn't already invested heavily in Canon lenses I'd be sorely tempted by this excellent Nikon offering, barring talk of waiting lists :^( Interesting comments about the 5D - I'll not be rushing out to replace my old D60 just yet then!

Why oh why does anybody need a full frame sensor? The 24x36mm frame size goes back to the 1900's.Oscar Barnack used it because he could use movie film in his newly created 35mm minature camera.If D2x images can be enlaged to 3x2ft why should Nikon bother to make a full frame sensor.Far better to have a common sensor size throughout the range,unlike certain
other manufacturers.

interesting discussion. I am researching changing brands and moving up a nothc or two from my minolta 7D. Wont be for about 5 or 6 months so maybe this is a decent choice plus maybe come down in price a little bit by then or at least be more availble.
Going to search for some reviews on this - if anyone spots any good ones please post.

Kenrockwell.com has some info, but he can be a bit erratic/unreliable IMHO. Dpreview seems to be the site to watch. The D200 price will definitely drop once the waiting lists have been cleared, so you could save yourself 200-300 by waiting a few months (which could be spring). As for arguments over full-frame/APS sensor sizes, I don't know. 'Full-frame' is a legacy throwback to when Charlie Chaplin made silent films, but so long as the camera takes pictures you're happy with, does it really matter?
