P setting on D200 Nikon

When used on P setting with a flash at night, the settings changed on my Nikon D200 from the normal 1/60 @ f7.1 at 800. The speed instead of being fixed moved depending on the ambient light in the room. Anywhere from 1/15 to 1/125.s there a way to get the camera to go back to the original 1/60?

  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.

Hello! When I attach the flash on my Nikon D200, it fires even while I'm focusing or just when I touch the trigger button. Any ideas? The flash is not firing like that while not on the camera.

The flash on the camera is being used to throw light for the lens to focus, unless the flash has a setting / the camera has a setting to fix this.... I would assume this as a normal behaviour.

Just to be sure that i'm thinking the same lines as you - your flashes that happen while focusing will be short bursts and when you take the final image you still have a significantly higher powered flash.

Nikon SB600 flash behaving strangely

I have sent my SB-600 to Nikon twice in the past 6 months to resolve this problem. They have fixed it both times, but never told me what the problem was. I've had it back for exactly 1 day now, and it's started back up again already. If I receive a solution (or replacement), I'll let you know!

The symptom you describe sounds like an incorrect white-balance setting when you take the images. Digital cameras are sensitive to the quality of lighting seen when your taking pictures. First thing to try is to manually select a white balance setting and try the photos again. Try google or your manual to find instructions on how to do that. The camera can auto-adjust to some lighting situations, but fails to properly compensate in other situations resulting in the muddy or yellowed images you have seen. There is a product called "expodisc" that corrects for this white balance problem as well. Look it up. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
