Sunset at Mow Cop castle Nikon D200

When my Nikon D800 died the 2nd time I was in Derbyshire taking photos along side a river with my camera on a tripod when a dog ran into my camera and knocked it into the river. The camera was submerged and ceased to work. Whilst the D800 was out of action I was using my backup camera a trusty older Nikon D200.

The Nikon D200 is a great camera and semi pro model as is weather sealed and shoots 9 set brackets which is quite unusual for that age camera. I would still recommend the D200 if your shooting on a budget as you can pick these up used for less then £150. Although a crop sensor it does benefit from an autofocus motor so you can use older lenses unlike the entry level model Nikons i.e. 3000 / 3100 / 3200. Great camera for the money.

Where the D200 lacks is its high ISO gets very grainy over 800 ISO and its battery life is very poor even though it has no live view.

This photo was taken at Mow Cop castle in Derbyshire using the Nikon D200 with the Samyang 14mm Lens at F11, ISO 100 and 7 brackets. With tweaks in Photoshop, Nik and Topaz.

Nikon D200 Review

The Nikon D200 is a 10.2-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera that falls between entry-level/midrange DSLR cameras such as the Nikon D40, Nikon D40x, and D80 and high-end models such as the Nikon D2Hs and D2Xs. It was released by the Nikon Corporation in November 2005. The D200 was succeeded by the D300 in August 2007.

Main advantages over the D40, D40x, D50, D60 and D80 cameras include:

More robust, metal (magnesium alloy) body incorporating environmental seals
Better matrix metering than D40, D50, or D80 (more sensor areas and less prone to overexposure)

Higher image resolution than D50 and D40, 10 MP instead of 6 MP (Note that the D40x and D60 are 10.2 MP)

11-point autofocus system instead of a 3-point system (D40, D40x and D60)

Advanced continuous autofocus tracking options

More straightforward controls; many controls to adjust shooting settings (image quality, ISO, etc.) are directly accessible on the camera without going into the menu system

Five frames per second continuous shooting

Larger image buffer

Four-channel sensor output (faster throughput to support 5 frames per second and finer color gradation)

Dedicated PC (flash) sync plug

Ability to save RAW images with selectable size and quality JPEGs (the D50 and D70s can only save basic quality JPEGs with RAW images)

Ability to save uncompressed RAW images

Ability to meter with pre-AF lenses

Ability to connect NMEA 0183 compatible GPS

EN-EL3e battery with precise status reporting

Optional vertical battery grip

Optional vertical grip integrated with wireless transmitter

Compared with Nikon’s professional cameras, mainly the D2Xs, the D200 lacks an integrated vertical battery grip, longer battery life, and some minor features. The autofocus system has only one cross-type sensor instead of nine like the D2H, D2Hs, D2X and D2Xs, though it has the same number of focus points (eleven). This means the D200 has the versatility but lacks the precision of the D2 series, particularly with the sensors other than the center cross-type sensor, and in low-light conditions. The D200 offers a lower price and a more compact, lighter body than the D2 series.

Nikon D300 Review

The Nikon D300 is a 12.3-megapixel semi-professional DX format digital single-lens reflex camera that Nikon Corporation announced on 23 August 2007 along with the Nikon D3 FX format camera. It replaced the D200 as Nikon’s DX format flagship DSLR. The D300 was officially discontinued by Nikon on September 11, 2009, being succeeded by the Nikon D300S, which was released July 30, 2009.

The D300 was designated by Nikon as the ultimate in DX format performance. It is quite similar to the D700, with the main difference being that the D300 uses a DX sensor instead of an FX sensor. It offers both high resolution and high speed (being able to capture 6 frames per second, and 8 frames per second with the addition of an optional MB-D10 battery pack).

The D300 has not only a built-in autofocus motor for all Nikon autofocus-lenses, but includes CPU and metering for older Nikon F-mount AI/AI-S lenses and the new generation perspective control lenses (PC-E).

The built-in intervalometer (timer) can be used for time-lapse low-lit movies.

Nikon D90 Review

The Nikon D90 is a 12.3-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera model announced by Nikon on August 27, 2008. It is a prosumer model that replaces the Nikon D80, fitting between the company’s entry-level and professional DSLR models. Nikon gives the D90’s Estimated Selling Price in the United States as US$899.95 for the body alone and as $1299.99 with the Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, which by itself sells for $399.95. Street prices are generally lower.

The D90 was the first DSLR with video recording capabilities. In May 2009, the D90 won the TIPA European Photo & Imaging Award, in the “Best D-SLR Advanced” category.

Some of the improvements the D90 offers over the D80 include 12.3 megapixel resolution, extended light sensitivity capabilities, live view and automatic correction of lateral chromatic aberration. The D90 is the first DSLR to offer video recording, with the ability to record HD 720p videos, with mono sound, at 24 frames per second.

Unlike less expensive models such as the D40, D60, D3000 and D5000, the D90 has a built in autofocus motor, which means that all Nikon F-mount autofocus-lenses (except two for the rare Nikon F3AF) can be used in autofocus mode.

The Nikon D90 is the first Nikon camera to include a third firmware module, labeled “L,” which provides an updateable lens distance integration database that improves autoexposure functions. Some of its accessories, such as the MB-D80 battery grip and ML-L3 wireless remote, are also compatible with its predecessor the D80. It was the first Nikon DSLR to support Global Positioning System integration for automatic location tagging of photographs, using a GPS receiver sold separately.

Nikon D700 Review

The Nikon D700 is a professional-grade full-frame digital single-lens reflex camera introduced by the Nikon Corporation in July 2008 and manufactured in Japan. It uses the same 12.1-megapixel “FX” CMOS image sensor as the Nikon D3, and is Nikon’s second full-frame digital SLR camera.

The D700’s full-frame sensor allows the use of non-DX F-mount lenses to their fullest advantage, with no crop factor. When a DX lens is mounted on the D700, either the DX-sized portion, or the (vignetted) FX-sized portion of the camera’s sensor can be used. The D700 has a built in autofocus motor for all Nikon autofocus-lenses, includes CPU and metering for older Nikon F-mount AI/AI-S lenses, and supports PC-E lenses. The D700 bears a physical similarity to the Nikon D300, which uses the same MB-D10 battery pack and EN-EL3e battery. As of 2012, the Nikon D3X, the D3/D3s, D4 and D700 are the only Nikon DSLR models that are manufactured in Japan. It was discontinued on August 24, 2012.
