Nikon Unveils D200 Digital SLR

Nikon D200 DSLR Nikon D200 DSLR

Nikon has introduced its D200, a digital SLR camera that combines new technologies with features inherited from the D2X. The D200 employs a newly developed 10.2-effective megapixel DX Format CCD image sensor, for improved resolution and clarity. Its 1,005-pixel, 3D Color Matrix Metering II system determines ideal exposures even in complex lighting conditions, and an advanced image-processing engine provides clarity and smooth color gradations.

The D200 can shoot five frames per second with a viewfinder blackout time of 105 milliseconds between shots. It has a new 11-area autofocus system, iTTL Creative Lighting System and Wi-Fi image transmission options. The image sensor incorporates a high-speed four-channel data output and a new optical low-pass filter that significantly reduces moiré as well as color fringing and shifting.

The D200 also features a built-in i-TTL wireless Speedlight control, along with wireless image transfer over an 802.11b/g Wi-Fi network built into the optional WT-3 wireless transmitter. The Speedlight, capable of coverage for lenses as wide as 18mm, features a Commander Mode that can wirelessly control up to two separate groups of an unlimited number of i-TTL Speedlights.

The NEF (RAW) files from the D200 comprise not only the RAW image data captured but also thumbnail images and instruction settings at the time of shooting, such as white balance, color balance and tone curves, to be adjusted for each recorded image at any time after shooting. The D200 carries an estimated price tag of $1,699.
