Nikon D200 DSLR Reviews

Shutterbug has reviewed the Nikon D200 DSLR camera where they write: “Priced at about US$1700, the D200 will appeal to those who want one of the best and most useable digital SLRs today, but want to experience pro build and handling without paying the higher price tag of pro-level cameras. At 10+ megapixels it certainly delivers the imaging power for enlargements and even radical crops on 8×10 prints. With more built-in imaging options than one could ever use or imagine, there isn’t much the D200 can’t handle.”

DP Review has published a Nikon D200 review, they ‘highly recommended’ the 10.2 megapixel digital SLR camera and here’s a little of what they have to say: “I really enjoyed the Nikon D200. It’s one of those cameras which you look forward to picking up, I really got on with its design and ergonomics, it’s small enough not to break your back yet sturdy enough to feel absolutely purposeful, solid and reliable. It fills the photographer with an air of confidence that each time they need it the camera is going to perform. It also has an air of luxury, quality and thoughtful design which other cameras sometimes miss, manufacturers mustn’t forget that many professional photographers have to ‘live’ with their camera day in day out, thinking hard about how it should feel and operate can really make a big difference. Nikon know about good design and it shows, the Nikon D200 is a great camera to get along with.”

CNET has reviewed the Nikon D200, here’s a snippet from the review: The Nikon D200, a long-awaited successor to the company’s D100, offers serious amateur photographers and value-minded professionals a compact, sub-$2,000 digital SLR with many of the specifications, features, and build characteristics of Nikon’s high-end pro cameras. Although not quite the junior version of the top-of-the-line D2X that some had hoped for, the Nikon D200 offers a significant step up from Nikon’s low-end D70s and D50 models, with 10.2-megapixel resolution, a rugged moisture- and dust-sealed magnesium-alloy body, a large viewfinder, a 5fps drive mode, and bountiful fine-tuning and customization options. Accessories including Nikon iTTL external flash units, a Wi-Fi transmitter, a burgeoning line of digital optics, and third-party GPS units give the Nikon D200 enough versatility to compete effectively with its pricier midrange competitor, the full-frame Canon EOS 5D.
