Question about Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D200 has become nearly impossible to grab images

Recently my D200 began exhibiting problems, which have developed to the point that the camera has become mostly unreliable. First symptom was it began freezing while shooting in Continuous High mode. Then, the top panel battery meter began showing the batteries were drained (I'm using the MBD200 battery grip), then the meter returned to a more normal state, showing more life in the batteries. This developed to the state that nearly every attempt to take a picture failed. The shutter freezes open, and after a few seconds lag time, a second depression of the shutter release button closes the shutter, but no picture is recorded.

False low-battery warnings, focusing, and metering problems may be the result of poor contact between the body and certain lenses. Try removing your lens and thoroughly cleaning the contacts. I would recommend using a contact cleaner, but rubbing alcohol will also work. Remember that the whole ring needs to be cleaned. If that does not work, try scraping the battery contacts.

Disk not formatted


You need to eliminate all the possibilities.
Does andifferent memory card exhibit exactly the same problem?
Sometimes memory cards develop faults.
If you can use the camera to format the card (You will lose all the pictures on the card when you do this) and take some fresh pictures, it may work. If not, buy a new card. The prices have come down so much now it makes sense to have several 1Gb cards so that you can have spares and swap them around.

Most cards work best if all the images are transferred to your computer or onto CD and then formatting the card to erase everything. If you do not do this the card may become unusable even if you have deleted individual images.

Cropping


You cannot crop images and save them on a D200. Thats what the Nikon Capture and Nikon PictureProject software are for. Here is the Cnet review link: http://webshots.com.com/digital-cameras/nikon-d200/4507-6501_7-31568586.html?tag=sub

You've made an excellent choice btw....

White Balance


With your D200, you can use the kelvin temperature mode instead the other. As I work in TV where we do the white balance very often, I can guess what's the Kelvin temperature when I shoot. I only use Kelvin now on the D200 and it's more reliable!

Nikon D300 RAW images have alot of noise / artifaction


I have bought two Nikon D300 in the past ten days, the first camera had stuck pixels, 12 of them, red dots in every image. The second Nikon D300 is so noisey in every ISO other than 100... it is worthless to me at this point. Sharp as a tack, but so noisey, the sharpness is moot. I think I have a solution, but it will involve dumping a $164,000 Nikon equipment history over the past 30 years and embroidering new patches on my photo vest which read, CANON! The fact that I even have to consider such a move makes me nausious. Nikon has betrayed many of it's biggest fans, me being one of them. I don't know what happened at Nikon to allow them to fall so far behind Canon, who trailed Nikon for nearly 40 years, but SOMEBODY SHOULD BE FIRED!!!!
