Question about Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D200 / photos coming out magenta somtimes blue

I shoot about 200 photos, 5 days a week, have owned the camera 2 years. Now, after shooting about 50 perfectly colored photos the following 50 photos turn magenta, sometimes they turn blue. I turn the camera on and off and the photos continue to be off-color. I've changed the white balance then change it back to "A" and the camera starts shooting normal color again. I take a lot of pictures of faces so it's extremely important that the color balance is maintained. Can you help me please?
Thank you,
Patty

    garf22,



    Thank you for the suggestion. I adjusted the manual white balance color temp. to your advice and it worked. So far so good, and that's been 3 weeks of good photographs.

    I appreciate your help, many thanks. pattylu

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.

Using 200-500 Tamron on Nikon d300. When I shoot, camera freezes. Clock and exposure readout next to it, on top panel, blink. Camera will not turn off, I have to take the battery out. Lens works...


Maybe there is something wrong with your batteries? Replace them. I had the same experience with my D200 and a Nikon 18-200 lens, later with my Nikon 10.5, Sigmaa 135-400. After replacing the battery everything worked as ever.
