Nikon D200 – Review @ Digitalcamerainfo

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006

Patrick Singleton & Alex Burack have recently posted their review on Nikon D200, a 10.2 megapixel DSLR with a 5 frames-per-second burst speed and a brand-new autofocus module, at DigitalCameraInfo. In conclusion they write:

Nikon D200

“The Nikon D200 delivers excellent 10 megapixel images, and it’s easy for the experienced photographer to operate. It’s an excellent step-up camera for photographers buying a second Nikon DSLR, or for experienced film users who are finally jumping to digital (do such people still exist?).

The D200 combines advances and refinements that Nikon fans had every reason to expect: higher resolution, lower noise, faster autofocus, and a more polished interface. If there is anything shocking about the D200, it’s the fact that nothing is shocking about it. With the D200, Nikon delivers a solid performer. Canon, in contrast, keeps on delivering surprising cameras – the 5D has a full-frame sensor for less money than people expected. The 1D Mark II n cranks out 8.5 frames per second (and does it at 8 megapixels for a faster burst rate at twice the file size of the Nikon D2Hs), and the 1Ds Mark II brought photographers 16.7 megapixels at under $8,000.

In short, Nikon has delivered an excellent camera, but has still left the headlines to Canon.”

Nikon D200 Samples @ Camera Labs

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006

Cameralabs did some tests on the new Nikon D200 along with Nikon D2x, Canon EOS 5D and Canon EOS 1Ds MK II. They wrote:

“Noise levels on the D200 are very usable up to 800 ISO and slightly better than the D2X, presumably due to the D200’s larger pixel pitch. The results of the Canon 5D and 1Ds Mark II though clearly illustrate the benefit of a larger sensor with a greater pixel pitch. Noise levels are much lower throughout, although especially so at 800 ISO and above. “
