Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

1 Answer

Pictures are noisy

I have a D200 & lately the pictures have been turning out with a lot of noise.  I used the camera last week & the pictures turned out perfect.  Could anyone tell me why this could be happening?  I have a cheap Sigma lens on it, so I'm wondering if that would be causing these problems.

    I have recently bought a nikon D200 and have moved from a D50.

    My D200 picture quality seems to be so poor compared to the D50. A lot of noise, the images are dark and dont seem to be as sharply focused.

    Ive set the D200 to the same settings as the D50 and tried a few different lenses but still cant get the same quality. Can anyone help.

What ISO setting are you using?  If you go above 400 ISO with your D200 you'll likely need to do some noise reduction when you process.  Check to see if you accidentally activated AUTO-ISO.

My Nikon D2oo is not working with Extreme 111 Compact flash cards that I just had the camera Format. There is an burn oder coming from either the camera or card.Wanting to put card not formatted with...

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Please if the card contains any important pictures, connect it to a computer and copy them to the computer if they are not backed up. Then put the card in the camera and format the card in the camera, then you can connect it back to the computer, put those pictures in there and then the card back into the camera if that is what you wanted to do.

Note that the camera might not show your pictures, unless they are named the same way as original pictures taken with the camera.

My Nikon d40 is all of a sudden taking dark pictures

Silvanus is correct - I have a D200 and often by accident adjust the exposure bias dial when taking the camera out of my backpack resulting in dark shots. I bet this is your problem.

Nikon D200 / photos coming out magenta somtimes blue

Set it to a manual white balance colour temperature, 5200K being an average one to start testing at. Does this make a difference? If not, then the sensor, RGB lightmetering sensor or exposure board may be at fault. The peripheral area of most sensors is used for white balance metering, which denotes a sensor issue, although if the exposure board isn't reading this information correctly, then it will give varying results. However, Nikon's 420 pixel RGB sensor on the D200 may also be taking WB readings. I'll be talking to Nikon soon, but try manual settings first.

Nikon D200 incomplete RAW pictures

If youre using exposure bracketing, especially when raw+jpeg is used, this is saving out massive amounts of data to the memory card. Have you tried using a faster (80x) memory card and/or just using raw alone? You can always make the jpeg at the computer later.
