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.

Trouble shooting in auto focus


Maje sure you lens it not set to manual focus and that the lens is mounted correctly. Also - FWIW - shoot with a fast shutter speed (1/250 or better) to avoid blur.

My photos are blue!


Hi Karen,

I would check your white balance. I would also highly recommend some good reading. The author Ken Rockman really has this camera "dialed in". I know he addresses that problem in there. You can find it here. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d200/users-guide/d200-users-guide.pdf

Have fun with your camera!
