I have a Nikon d200 and need to take sports photos in a basketball court The sport is very fast moving. What should I set the camera to. Lately the photos are dark and or blurry


You want the fastest shutter speed you can get and the largest aperture possible.
If you're close enough and it's allowed, use the flash. The flash will freeze the action. However, it's likely to give you a dark background instead of a blurry background.
If not, use the Aperture Priority mode. Open the lens to its maximum aperture (smallest f/number). This will give you the fastest shutter speed for the existing lighting conditions. The fast shutter speed will freeze the action and the large aperture will blur the background, though the amount of freezing may be limited if the lighting is relatively dark, as in a high school gym.
Be aware that if you're shooting indoors you're going up against the laws of physics. The human eye can adapt much better than any camera. A high school gym will appear light enough once you've been inside for a few minutes, but it is much, much darker than a bright day outdoors.

Lack of definition, blurriness.


Experiment with lowering the "exposure compensation" setting until you get the desired results. Also, don't forget to use a tripod.

Camera doesn't focus very well on dark subjects.


I think you have 2 problems at one time.
1 - I notice that your depth of field is very narrow, (your aperature is quite open) which hardly can focus the spot you want. try to increase the f/number like f/4 or above. the models face and there clothes toward your nikon D100 is almost the same distance, so they should be in the same focus range, but as I said witch big aperatures like f/2.8 of f/1.4 every inch count when it becames to focus.
2 - Set your camera in Single-focus (not Continous focus) en focus on the models face. then press halfway en keep it pressed. then you can compose a new position (still pressed halfway) and when the composition is good, then press it further to capture the photo.

Bakground of the photo is a bit blurry


this is, in most cases, a desired effect (bokeh) which is used to "detach" the subject from the background avoiding the viewer of the picture to be distracted by the background. This technique is widely used in portraits. This effect effect will be more pronounced when the lens is wide open (in your case it should be f/3.5 if I remember well...). To practice you may try the following: set you camera to "A" mode and take one picture of something (it should not be a landscape) using the smallest aperture after this take the same pic using the biggest aperture. With the lower f number you should get a blurry background and with the biggest the backgroud should be in focus!

Very soft focus on D200


Hi Amanda, welcome to FixYa.

Try this to fix your focusing issue. It's a custom AF setting.
Press the Menu and select the pencil icon. Then you'll see Custom Setting Menu on the LCD display. Click down to Autofocus and then click to the right.
There are 3 choices here: FPS Rate, FPS Rate + AF, and Focus.
Set it to Focus.
FPS Rate is the default setting, the camera will take 5 frames per second whether it's in focus or not.
FPS Rate+ AF forces it to slow down hoping to get more frames in focus.
Focus sets the camera to fire only when in perfect focus. It slows you down some, but it will save you from deleting all the blurry ones.

Try this and let me know if it works for you with a comment.

Ken Rockwell has alot of tips and tricks (including the one I just gave you) in a pdf telling all about your camera. You can read it here. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d200/users-guide/d200-users-guide.pdf

Enjoy your camera and feel free to rate my solution.

Nikon D200 / photos coming out magenta somtimes blue


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.

Who to focus on when shooting a family with Nikon D200


Anything you can do to increase the depth of field will help. I've found that focusing on the center person in the back row (of say a group of 8-12 in two rows) works better than the front one. F8 minimum @ a distance of 12-15 feet works pretty good with a short zoom.

D200 blurry photos


Do you have the self-timer activated (dial on the top left)?  Can you give more detail?  What mode are you shooting in?
