Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera
I'm using a Nikon D200 with 17-55mm f2.8lens and the result I am getting is very poor. images are not sharp. They seem to be slightly out of focus and even certain parts of the photograph are less sharp than others. I've tried using another lens and the result is the same, so i'm guessing its not the lens. I've just cleaned the sensor with sensor swabs and eclipse lens cleaner. The results improved but still not 100%. Can anyone help???
Your camera settings may be off. The D200 is very flexible when it comes to personalizing your settings, but they can be hard to navigate.
Try resetting using the built in reset feature. This will not affect your personal settings but may clear any unwanted changes. To do this, find the "QUAL and +/- " buttons on the top of the camera. Hold them both down for a few seconds. The top LCD blinks then the camera is reset.
This resets things like resolution, White balance and ISO settings.
Next, try setting your metering matrix to the middle position. Not the top and certainly not the bottom postion. This switch is located on the right side of the view finder.
If your lens has a "M/A - M", use the M/A setting.
There are three settings for focus. C, S, and M, located on the front of the camera next to the lens. Set your camera focus to "S". This will set it up for still subjects and prevent the sensors from tracking things that move. Also set on the AF area mode switch on the back of the D200.
Try these settings. If your images are still out of focus, you may have other issues that may require servicing by an authorized Nikon facility.
