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

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.

I just purchased a SystemPro Wireless Remote Shutter release for my Nikon D200 camera. How do I set the menu program so the camera and the remote "talk" to one another? Thanks for your help


You need to set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To choose a shooting mode, press the mode dial lock release and turn the mode dial to the desired setting.

Nikon D200 has become nearly impossible to grab images


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.

Blurry indoor photos


blurry pictures often comes from the slightest movement when the pictures is snapped.
Don;t know if that is your problem or not try a photo tripod and see if that helps or check your trouble shooting area of your amnual. if you don't have the manual go to this site for any type of manual::::

I have a nikon d200, lately the shutter lags 1-2 seconds.


It is probably delaying while it autofocuses.  If it is like most Canon cameras, depressing the shutter half-way should allow you to focus without taking a picture, then when the moment is right, depress the shutter button fully to take the shot.  You will want to practice this a bit to get used to it.  Shooting in low-light it can take longer to find the focus, so it becomes more necessary to use this technique.
Hopefully that helps, but I am not a Nikon user.

Beginner need some help please


There's absolutely nothing wrong with your camera. You simply need to learn about the basics. Read on the web about exposure, shutter speed, aperture, and how they affect each other. If your shots are blurry, the reason is that the shutter speed was too low.

How can you know when the shutter speed is too low?

- Use a tripod (the VR of the lens must be off in this case)
- Or, for hand-held shots, use shutter priority mode and set a speed as fast as the focal length of the lens. - i.e. for focal length of 100mm, a handheld shot must be taken at 1/100 sec or faster. Of course, the light might not be available for such a faster speed. The VR also gives you some latitude, but it's not panacea.

Additionally, DSLR cameras (esp. if you shoot RAW) produce images that are less saturated and contrasty compared to the blown out photos produced by point and shoot cameras.

You have a remarkable camera, just take your time and learn the basics of photography.

Blurry pictures


I don't have a solution but I have this problem as well - when shooting on Auto, it seems the camera selects a shutter speed that is way too slow.
