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).

Running in TTL mode with Nikon D200, flash EF-500 DG ST NAd, doesn't work. In manual mode everything runs well.


this flash is not compatible with the d200. i had one and sent it back to sigma, they upgraded the software in the flash for free. now it works in all modes, it needs to be iTTL to work on the nikon d200 the NAd version is not iTTL.

Is the Vivitar Series 1 compatible with the D200 Nikon Digital SLR camera?


Yes. Bear in mind that due to the sensor of the D200 being smaller than a frame of 35mm film, the crop factor will make this lens seem like a 150-600mm.

D200 compatibility ?


Hello,

Metz says yes: Metz

Certainly Nikon will say no. I would double check the fit of the shoe on the camera. The pins on the flash should be springy to the touch.
