Re: Vivitar 636 and Nikon D200

You won't be able to use older TTL flashguns with the D200. Since the D70, all nikon cameras have used "iTTL", and earlier DSLRs (eg D100) have used "D-TTL". Neither of these are compatible with the older TTL system used on film cameras. The newer SB-400/600/800 flashguns are all ok, and Sigma and Metz both produce iTTL compatible flashguns. The new flashguns will work on old cameras but not vice versa.

I know this is annoying, but there were good technical reasons why Nikon changed the TTL standards.

If the 636 has an A mode (non TTL) this should work ok, otherwise it will only work in manual (if it has a manual mode).

I am thinking of using Vivitar Series One 28-300mm f/4.0-6.3 Auto Focus for Nikon D2x...! Does this have aimage stabilisation motor in it?? Do u recommend this for the camera??

I don't think it has image stabilization. If you use a tripod, stabilization is not important. If not, you can increase your shutter speed to compensate. Vivitar makes fair quality lenses, but you have a Nikon. I presume that you bought your Nikon because you want top quality images. If it is a matter of money, I would wait until I could afford a Nikon lens. As an alternative, consider used Nikon lenses. I generally carry a 10-24 mm DX, 28-105mm and 70-300 mm and a 60mm macro when I travel and it works well.

I just purchased a SystemPro Wireless Remote Shutter release for my Nikon D200 camera. How do I set the menu program so the camera and the remote "talk" to one another? Thanks for your help

You need to set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To choose a shooting mode, press the mode dial lock release and turn the mode dial to the desired setting.

Err, R25 on display

The D200 uses a different way of changing the aperture than on that old lens. Set the switch to 22 and lock it with the little lock just above it. It always has to set like this. Now the D200 will stop complaining.

P setting on D200 Nikon

  1. Set the camera on manual.
  2. Set your aperture to what ever you prefer
  3. Set the speed to 1/60
  4. Adjust your speed or aperture until you like the exposure
Program mode will do what it wants...not what you want. Sometimes it makes good choices, but you have more control in M mode.
