Nikon D200 DSLR Review

Review Date: Nov 20, 2006

Category: Advanced Amateur - Prosumer

Nikon D200 with optional MB-D200 Multi-Power Battery Pack

Photoxels Editor's Choice 2006 Nikon D200 wins DIWA Gold Award Nikon D200 wins DIWA Platinum Award


This Nikon D200 Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

This review has been submitted to DIWA Awards [Total: 84%].


The Nikon D200 DSLR is a (relatively) affordable professional-grade DSLR. Sized and priced similar to the Nikon D100 that it replaces, it is closer to the professional Nikon D2X in features and image quality.

The Nikon D200 has more customizations than the average photographer would ever need but if you have specialized photographic needs, you will want the extensive customization settings and exposure flexibility available. In this case, insead of buying a DSLR that might not fit your needs, you might want to get the Nikon D200.

You get superb handling, exceptional performance, a large, bright and clear optical viewfinder, a body sealed against dust and mositure, and excellent image quality with low noise and preserved detail up to ISO 400. Noise is present at higher ISOs.

The Nikon D200 is very responsive and gives a feeling of confidence that it can tackle any challenges the photographer may face. It is probably not really for the amateur photographer looking for a first DLSR, but it will easily be a popular backup camera for the professional photographer who already owns a Nikon DSLR and lens system. The advanced amateur photographer who is ready to upgrade his or her DSLR but could not afford (or justify) the high price of a professional-grade digital camera can now do so with the Nikon D200.
